I am a very gentle and kind-hearted 28-year-old that would go above and beyond for the happiness of any animal. With 10 years experience of working with animals and having my own pets I am confident in saying that I uphold the skills and experience that would be highly suitable for anybody requiring an energetic person with all the love in the world to give to your pets. I have 4 years experience working in a cattery and experience working in a farm/zoo, as well as numerous amounts of pet sitting and dog walking jobs over the last 10 years – both overnight and day visits ranging between 1 week to 1 month, it is no secret that I am familiar with all sorts of animals and the care they require.
My pet services include:
30 minutes + walk in requested location - dog will be picked up from/dropped off at required address, dog can be walked off lead (if allowed by owner).
30 minutes + home visit once or twice a day for up to 3 pets - food and water will be changed, medication given (if required), time given in the garden to exercise and use toilet, cleaning/tidying up after the pets (cat litter trays, pet cages, dog litter), time spent playing with your pet and collecting mail and taking out rubbish if needed.
24 hours over night house sitting for up to 3 pets - food and water will be changed, medication given (if required), time given in the garden to exercise and use toilet, cleaning/tidying up after the pets (cat litter trays, pet cages, dog litter), time spent playing with your pet and general household duties including collecting mail, taking out rubbish, cleaning and washing up and watering plants.
Please contact me with any enquiries and we can arrange a meet and greet to allow you and your fur baby to get to know me.
Trusting someone in your home with your dog who is so precious to you is not easy . We have used leonie now for a couple of years and are so lucky to have found her. Leonie is trustworthy and reliable. She gives us regular updates which is reassuring to know that our dog dusty is ok. Leonie has done odd days and weekends as well as longer holidays and dusty loves her ! Dusty hated kennels but when leonie comes to stay she is really happy which makes it so much easier to go away. Leonie has respect for our house and leaves it as she finds it and she clearly loves animal's and is kind and caring. Without leonie we probably wouldn't be able to have a holiday she is wonderful and we would thoroughly recommend her.
Leonie texted me with regular updates whilst I was away, I found everything tidy when I came back and Suki had obviously been well looked after.
Leonie is a lovely girl who is certainly an animal lover.
I would have no hesitation in booking her again.
4 years experience working in a cattery with a variety of cats - elderly, kittens, viscious, overweight, different breeds (siamese, ragdoll, british short hair, bengal), large numbers of cats at one time/large families of cats, cats with medical problems (diarrhea, sickness, diabetes - have experience administering medication orally and injections) and dietary requirements (raw meat, cooked meat, veterinary food). Also 10 years experience cat sitting for customers with the same variety of pets as already mentioned, as well as cats that require outdoor use and cats that don't.
10 years experience overall in dog care (dog sitting and walking) with a variety of dogs - elderly, overweight, hyper, boisterous, dogs with daily medication for epilepsy and arthiritis, dogs with health issues such as incontinence, large dogs (german shepherd, collie, staffy-cross, labrador), small dogs (pug, bischon frise, shih tzu, jack russell), dogs that require a lot of play during walks (balls, sticks, etc) and dogs that don't require a walk at all (only require garden use).
During periods of housesitting and working in the cattery I would also carry out large cleaning tasks. Cleaning of the cattery would include deep cleaning the pens, scrubbing all walls, floors, shields, windows, cracks, cat flaps, hoovering, thoroughly washing any equipment that is used e.g. bowls, dishes, necessary laundry of all bedding, changing of equipment, litter tray and cat's bowls every day. Cleaning of houses, in terms of the pets would include changing bedding, washing when needed, mopping and hoovering ensuring everything is clean, washing bowls and dishes, laying down any doggy pads that may be needed and cleaning dog's paws after muddy walks. As well as cleaning the animals area and equipment, I would also offer housekeeping in which I would carry out any required tasks - this is anything between window cleaning, cleaning skirting boards, laundry, washing up, filing and emptying dishwashers, cleaning fridges, etc.
