About Hester

My name is Hester Saltoun and I am based in GU4, Guildford.

Note: Happy to do dog walking or overnights. For dog walking, I am available most days. For overnight stays, I am generally available for weekends from Friday nights to Monday mornings.

I love to work with children and animals.
I have been dog walking for 5 years with excellent references and have looked after quite a few dogs in my home whilst their owners have been away. I have 15 years work experience with children in Nurseries and I have also volunteered at a soft play centre. In addition, I am currently working with horses, mucking out the stables and grooming them.

I am honest and trustworthy and always punctual. I can give your pooch a perfect time! I live in a big house with a wonderful back garden. I can provide lots of fun or a calm environment for your dog, but more importantly will provide all the love and cuddles your dog deserves.

To take the best care of your dog, I like to meet and get to know them well. So for first time bookings, I only accept short stay requests (after an initial meeting).

Let me know if you would like to meet :) Please contact via this site and then we can swap contact numbers after we meet.

My References:

"Hester has been so helpful, I suffer with M.E, Fibromyalgia amongst other illnesses meaning that some days my energy is really limited and so having Hester take Poppy out has really helped. Poppy loves Hester and is always excited to go out with her"- Amanda (Poppy's Mum)

"Dylan is always so pleased to see Hester and enjoys his walks with her every week" - Mark (Dylans Dad)

Hester was wonderful with Luna, gave her lots of walks. Luna was happy and I was very confident about leaving our dog with Hester. Safe and lovely garden.

Will be using Hester again.

Our dog (s) had a lovely time with Hester and when we came to collect them we could see they were happy and well cared for. They were still snuggling in to her and wagging their tails at her as we left . Hester was very conscientious and asked us plenty of questions to get all the info she needed to look after them and gave them loads of walks and love

Familiar with dog training techniques
I started dog walking 5 years ago, and have provided consistent and reliable regular walks. I have looked after 2 dogs whilst their owners have been away on holiday and I loved it! I would love to continue dog walking regularly and would love to gain more experience pet sitting. I really enjoy working with children and animals and care for animals deeply. I am good at calming them down when they're distressed. I can provide a fun and playful experience or a chilled and calm environment for your pets!I've looked after my own pets (cats and rabbits) from a very young age.
