Hi, My name is Gray and I’m a graphic designer/music maker that sits cats and walks dogs whenever I can. I have two years of experience walking dogs and forty years of cat-loving. My parents had cats from day one and my fiancee grew up with many dogs as her mother was a breeder. She has also been a dog walker for the past three years.
I realise that every animal is different and has their own specific needs. It’s an enjoyable process for me to discover this with each animal. With a new dog, I like to meet him/her with the owner and get to know their habits/schedule. When walking I always start off with a 15m lead in open spaces until we have made a bond. A water bottle must be to hand along with a collapsible bowl and sometimes treats.
It’s harder for me to articulate how I deal with cats as it seems innate having been around cats from my beginning. If I ever see a cat on the street I give it the opportunity to say hello. Although I want to say hi to all cats I know that they too sometimes don’t fancy it. My hit rate is very high though 😌
I’m a very reliable person that always puts animals first. I look forward to the possibility of putting your best friend first 🏝
Pawshake have asked me to update the following points:
• Dog walking is £10 per hour and I can offer a few walks per day - flexible.
• I work for myself so am flexible.
• I live with my fiancee - who works part-time and also cares for animals - with no pets of our own.
• Pets are allowed to sleep wherever they like - including our bed - in accordance with the owner.
• We do not have a backyard.
Gray is an excellent pet sitter!! Our dog Lodos stayed his apartment over the Xmas period and she was absolutely the happiest dog! He sent us many fun videos and pictures during the stay, so that we always knew how she was. And we couldn't be happier.. He took great care of our Lodos and we cannot thank him enough.. We'll now always use their services! Totally recommend!!
Gray was lovely from start to finish - I was a bit nervous 'cause Audrey had never stayed with someone she doesn't know, and I changed my mind a bit about when I was going to drop her off and pick her up, and Gray put up with it all, he was very kind and flexible, which was such a relief. I was also worried because Audrey is a bit of a pest, and scared of a lot of things, but that didn't put him off, and he didn't mention her being irritating when she came home, which I'm sure she was! He sent lots of pictures and text updates so there was no need to be worried at all, I'll absolutely ask him to look after Audrey next time I need help.
