About Steph

Hi, I am Steph and I am a friendly, reliable and passionate animal lover and a Fur Mum of 5. I've been born and raised with dogs, primarily Newfoundlands and Bernese Mountain Dogs for most of my childhood, learning training techniques from puppy to adult from my parents and picked up some tips and tricks when we used to attend water training for the Newfs. I'm no stranger to other breeds having also had Collies, Jack Russells and Labradors and often helped walk some of my Mum's grooming clients!

Having grown up with dogs, it wasn't until I met my partner that I had to overcome my phobia of cats and now have 4 of my own, volunteer at a local Cat charity and am continuously studying Feline and Pet Care courses in my spare time. I'm happy to engage with all breeds of cat and have vast experience in Bengals which when looking for pet sitters myself, was something I struggled to find as they require alot of attention and energy.

Whilst I do not have kids of my own, my children are my pets. They are just as messy and talkative with the attitude to boot but they are are all loving and affectionate and benefit from clicker training and enrichment just like going to school.

I'm a strong believer in helping those in need and through my volunteer work (along with helping friends and family), every species deserves a quality of life be it a walk, a cuddle, a brush, a companion, some food or even a home. I'm a patient individual, with a calm and caring nature and approach each cat or dog as their own being, learning from them on what they deem acceptable before starting to bond. There is something special about establishing a bond in the right way and it fills me with happiness once I've cracked it. I am able to take on dog walking, cat/dog house visits/sitting in your home and some desensitisation if so required for the more scared or timid that just need some time to come out of their shell. I am also DBS checked and insured for your peace of mind.

I'm happy to meet & greet prior to any booking so that you can put name to face, ask any questions and details required for your fur babies and see how they react with me so you can feel comfortable with them in my care. I will treat any pet as my own fur child and as no two are the same each experience will be tailored to you and yours so please feel free to get in touch

Steph is an amazing sitter as well as an amazing person! She always goes above and beyond with her attention, communication and care for our boys who can be a handful. We have already booked her to mind them during our holiday and we will be sure to book her anytime we need a sitter.
