About Charlotte

Hi. My name is Charlotte, I'm 43 and I've always been crazy about dogs! I have over 20 years of experience looking after dogs and it is the best job on earth. I'd go as far as saying it's my vocation. I've been fortunate enough to have had two gorgeous dogs of my own in the past, both of whom were adopted from Dogs Trust where I was also a volunteer for a number of years.

I have looked after all ages of dogs from Puppies to Adolescent to Senior and Golden Oldies several of whom I've seen through to the end of their lives. I can administer oral medication, eye and ear drops if required. Grooming sessions are a regular part of the daily routine, and cuddles are in constant supply of course!!

I provide a comfy home from home environment and i love each dog as if they are my own while they are here. I have a large range of different types of toys and I have snuffle mats and lick mats, kongs etc which provide great mental stimulation and help with settling too. 

I am at home pretty much 24/7 so can provide almost constant company and care. This is ideal for dogs with Separation Anxiety which i have personal experience dealing with. There are dog beds in every room and I don't mind atall if they share mine!

I have a park and a beautiful Nature Reserve and river close by to my home which means i can provide fun stimulating walks which are tailored to the needs of each individual dog. I also regularly go to Dog Parks on the weekends. 

I am passionate about Dog Training and practice training techniques in my walks with the dogs. I am happy to continue any training you may already be doing with your dog. 

I take regular photos and videos and send updated so you can rest assured your dog is having a fantastic time while they are staying with me. I'm fully insured and happy to provide References on request. 

**** Due to looking after regular clients dogs I can only accommodate dogs who are good with other dogs. Thanks for your understanding ****

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for another fantastic dog sit! Annie loves staying with you, and it's great for me to know she is being so well looked after. We can't thank you enough :-)

This was my first time working with Charlotte, and I can’t thank her enough for her kindness and the reassurance she gave me during the process. She took such good care of my dog and sent lovely photos of what they had been getting up to. Annie came home relaxed and happy. I will definitely be using Charlotte’s dog care services again and am happy to recommend her. Thank you for a great experience!

Familiar with dog training techniques
I have volunteered for the RSPCA as a dog walker and i volunteer at Dogs Trust, where I adopted my previous two dogs. I have had a lot of experience with dogs that suffer from Separation Anxiety as it was an issue for my German Shepherd Collie X Maccy. I am home all day, so I can provide constant company and care. Many of the dogs I have looked after in the past have been Rescue dogs, as my two dogs were and I have unlimited time and patience allowing a dog to build their trust in me and forming a relationship which of course takes time. I have a small amount of Agility Equipment including poles, jumps and a tunnel which I find helps in building a dogs confidence whilst having fun at the same time! I have a very keen interest in dog training. I have been following particular dog trainers and Behaviourists for years. A particular favourite of mine is The Dog Father, Graeme Hall, and I've been lucky enough to attend two of his live seminars and to meet him and get my book signed by him! I have learnt skills through completing online courses such as loose lead walking, Recall and Frantic to Focused. I have looked after dogs on medication and can give tablets and give care such as ear drops and eye drops if necessary. I have looked after all ages of dogs from puppies to dogs nearing the end of their lives.
