Hello, my name is Lydia. I have recently moved up from London and I am thoroughly enjoying the fresh air and open spaces up here! When I was living in London I was a dogwalker and petsitter for friends and the local community. I love the outdoors and so I am looking forward to being able to take dogs on longer walks in areas that aren't surrounded by tall buildings! My dog walks are usually one 45minute long walk, but longer / shorter / more frequent walks can be arranged dependant on the dogs needs.
I am passionate about all animals, (except perhaps a little less keen on spiders...) and I'd like to be able to use this love of animals to help out others. I currently work most days from home, spending the day with my cat and any other animal that I'm looking after that day. I also have a car allowing me to be flexible with times and picking up/dropping off if need be.
I have a little boy tabby cat who is called Maui, and so I understand that your pet is not just a "pet" but also a part of the family. I will make sure that under my care your animals will get lots of love and attention (aswell as the essentials!). Maui is my absolute world and I struggle leaving him with without knowing how he's doing, and so I totally get it! If you need someone to send regular updates and photos, I'm your gal!
With regards to my house, I live with Maui (my cat) in a three bedroom house. If I am looking after a guest pet, I will keep them with me. If I am out in the garden they can come too if they like - I have a secure fully fenced back garden as can be seen in the photos. If the weather isn't good I usually reside in the lounge (pictured with Maui on the windowsill!) I have bedrooms upstairs that I will allow the guest pets to go in if they prefer a different room.
Although most of my experience is with cats dogs and rabbits, I am able to look after any kind of other animals! From mice, to lizards, to birds - I'm happy to look after them all!
I look forward to meeting you and your loved ones :)
We were pleased to find Lydia on Pawshake and relieved that she was available during our time away from home. It was very easy to relate to Lydia and she is prompt in all her communications. Lydia’s regular and plentiful photos and video clips of our pets and their interactions with her gave us much enjoyment and assurance. Our hamster, two rabbits and cat were well cared for. Lydia also understood our instructions well and quickly, giving us the extra confidence to entrust her with the responsibilities for the first time. We hope to be able to have her services again.
This is my second booking with Lydia, and it all went smoothly again and my cats were very well looked after. Thanks very much Lydia!
