About Amy

Hey there! Thanks for checking my profile out. I'm 20?years old, and I absolutely love animals. I grew up with dogs, cats and lots of other pets - this taught me responsibility from a young age. I'm a very driven and enthusiastic person who will always fulfill any task I set my mind to to the very highest standard that I can. I'm naturally confident handling dogs, cats, and horses - even the larger dogs which some people shy away from. Also, as I currently have 2 dogs of my own, I'm very familiar with the best areas to walk dogs in Shrewsbury, so I can provide a lot of variety for your dogs!

The reason I would like to help you out by pet sitting and walking your dogs is firstly that I enjoy it so much, and secondly as a form of secondary income as my husband and I are preparing to start our own hand-crafted furniture and jewellery business.I have previous formal work experience with dogs as I took my work experience at Nipstone Dog Kennels in Shropshire - this provided me with lots of practice handling dogs of all sizes and temperaments. Secondly, I volunteered at a local riding stables for 3 years consistently - this really boosted my animal handling knowledge and confidence.

My husband is very capable of training dogs especially those of ‘difficult’ temperaments and has experience training rescue dogs with a variety of behavioural issues including severe aggression.

What to expect when I walk your dogs: I will come collect your dog(s) from your house, then take them for a 30-60minute walk depending on your preferences. This can include (depending on our prior discussion of your dogs needs) on and off leash time, focussed play with me, play with my retriever dog, short training sessions if you are currently working on a particular aspect (eg. recall, retrieving, walking past other dogs calmly) etc. Again, I will discuss with you in detail exactly what you want when I walk your dog. And of course - I will keep you updated with regular texts and photos/videos!

What to expect when I sit for your pets: I will follow all instructions given, and love your pet like my own! I can also perform any household jobs you need (eg. watering plants, putting bins out).

Amy was everything she promised to be and more. The perfect cat sitter. Both Crunchie and Wispa were in safe hands, whilst Amy provided regular updates. So lucky to have found her!

Would highly recommend Amy! She was a delight to liaise with and everything was very straight forward.

Wilbur was in great hands!
