About Emma

My name is Emma, I love all animals and caring for them is my passion. I am available for dog walking, home visits for all species of animal, house sitting and a pet taxi service throughout Southampton and nearby areas.

I have over 15 years experience caring for my own and other people's pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chicken, rodents, reptiles, birds and fish! I also have over 10 years experience working with all different breeds of dogs.

I have also volunteered for many rescues over the years and been very involved with the rescue community by fostering dogs and helping to find them new homes, fund raising and advertising.

I travelled to Romania in order to help with the extreme stray dog situation over there and brought back 6 dogs to loving homes in the UK. I left my office job in 2016 in order to return to working with animals full time.

I am married and have a 9 year old daughter and a young baby, as well as 2 step daughters.

So a little about what you can expect when you choose me. When dog walking I make the walks as interesting and fun as possible, I play and interact withthe dogs in order to tire them out mentally as well as physically.I believe thata tired dog is a happy dog! I vary the walk locations and maximise the use of the woods and local countryside nearby. Walks can be accommodated to suit your dog and I am happy to take regular bookings or occassional.

Most dogs don't care whether it's raining, sunny or snowing - they still want their walk! Therefore I will walk whatever the weather. However, if your dog is one of the few who cannot abide a walk in the rain then I am more than happy, upon your request, to spend time with them indoors instead providing company and attention, playing and offering toilet breaks.

All dogs are towel dried after their walk but for a small additional price I can bath and brush them for you so they are lovely and fresh when you return home. I will also ensure they have fresh drinking water and can feed or administer medication upon request.

When home sitting I will fully follow your instructions regarding your pets routine as well as your home, which I will leave clean and tidy for your return.

I offer home visits to meet any requirements, whether it’s feeding your cat while you are on holiday, cleaning out your animal hutch while you are unwell, or visiting your puppy while you are at work. Not only does this provide the care and attention your pet requires, but also the added security of collecting up post, opening/closing curtains and turning on/off lights while you are away. I can also water plants on request and meet various other requirements.

I also offer a pet taxi service for times when you are unable to take your pet to where they need to be, for example vet or groomer appointments.

I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your pets!

Emma’s was a delight and we will definitely ask her to sit again.

Home Visits
Aurélie, 2019-01-27

Emma looked after my pet for 12 days over the Christmas period and I was absolutely delighted with her services. I came home to a clean flat and a happy kitty! My absence was not planned- I booked Emma on little notice and without having a chance to meet her beforehand, she was very helpful in every aspect! She kept me up to date with daily photographs (via the app), which was wonderful. I would highly recommend Emma and would book her again in a heartbeat.
