I am an 18 year old girl who has grown up in a family which has always had dogs. I have a driving license and a car so am mobile which makes accessing different areas easier.
My first job at 14 was in a cafe which I worked in for 4 years, this cafe was dog friendly and I had the opportunity to build up bonds with many of the dogs which came in regularly. From this I was able to arrange private dog sitting services with customers which has given me experience with different breads, sizes and natures of dogs.
Working in the cafe there were 4 different age dogs all different breads so I was able to learn their individual characters and needs.
I am currently studying Business and Criminology as A-Levels in Westgate and am moving on to study Tourism Management in University in the next academic year. This means alongside my studies I have a lot of free time which is beneficial for those who would prefer a drop in service.
I have also had experience dog sitting with not just colleagues but customers of my previous job as well as looking after the dogs which lived on the premises, walking, washing, feeding and playing with them.
I would love to build my love for dogs into something bigger and I have decided this field of work is what I am most passionate about.
I have experience dealing with a dog with a disability after adopting a 10 month old puppy who suffered saddle thrombosis. I had to inject her frequently every day and gave her 24/7 assistance helping her walk. Although not trained I was able to perform her medical needs on her to save constant trips to the vets and had to massage her legs daily as well.
I have experience giving medication to dogs,
Adaptable to different situations,
Supporting different needs of different pets,
Reliable and flexible work,
previous history dog sitting as well as owning my own Cockerspaniel boy aged 2.
