About Lydia

I am a 37 year old maritime nurse who works flexible hours from anywhere with internet access. I am happiest when I am spending time with cats and dogs! I regularly dog / house sit for friends which I enjoy very much, I would therefore love to widen my reach and assist others in need of help with their fur babies. I am available to house sit as long as I can use your wifi to work my day job. I will see to your pet's every need, keep your house clean, bring the post in and feed your plants (honestly, I am not so good at keeping plants alive but I will follow your instructions and keep my fingers crossed!).

I'd be more than happy to come and do an initial 'meet and greet' for free and answer any questions you may have.


Background:

I live in West Drayton with my wife and 2 cats (Frodo & Pippin). Growing up, I had 2 wonderful dogs (Rhodesian Ridgeback and a Staffy Bull), 3 hamsters, 2 guinea pigs, 1 rabbit, 1 ferret and 3 goldfish! 


I trained my dogs to a very high standard and taught them many tricks like "high five," "bring me a present," and "close the door." I worked in a boarding kennels, cattery and stables while I was doing my nurse training and I loved every minute of it. 

Thanks for your consideration :)

This is the second time we have left our dog (Kojak) and cat ((Jib) with Lydia and it was so lovely to go away knowing that our pets and house were in such good hands.

We were fortunate to find Lydia!

She treated Preta like her own dog, sent us beautiful photos and videos, and took her job seriously.

Preta loved Lydia, too. We know this because of her relaxed and happy attitude in videos and photos.

We definitely ask Lidia to take care of Preta Again.
