I am a mature, responsible and compassionate animal lover and I feel I have the patience and empathy to work with and
connect with all animals. I have gained
plenty of experience in animal care, including voluntary work both with dogs and horses. I have had the privilege of being entrusted with the owners keys in order to visit homes when the owners are away and have recently undertaken some cat sitting assignments. I have also recently undertaken a first aid animal care course. In addition I have gained
experience in all types/ages of dog care including administering medication and senior dog experience. I have been a pet sitter/dog walker for many years and have plenty of time on my hands which is well spent on the care and attention your pet needs.
I am also a keen walker and fitness fanatic who loves the outdoors. I have recently joined the Ramblers Association and being in the outdoors, long walks and cycling are things I love to do. I live in a small but comfortable home in the countryside close to a nature reserve, and woodlands. I find it rewarding to have the one to one close experience of being out solo walking, with a dog, connecting to nature and knowing that he/she is enjoying the experience also. Please note I am only able to accept bookings in my local area.
Circumstances meant we needed to find a dog sitter for our 11 year old Westie as he had always been left with family or friends. Within a few minutes of meeting Jean we knew we would be happy to leave Bentley with her. She obviously loves dogs and cares for their welfare.
We were given updates via pictures and texts while we were away which was reassuring.
Jean is a lovely lady and I would highly recommend her as an excellent dog sitter.
Booked our OAP (old aged pooch) Daisy with Jean having never used a home boarder before. Jean is very experienced, dedicated & is a natural with dogs.. Also, communication was easy, professional & friendly from beginning to end. . Daisy came home totally relaxed & content after being in her care. Was a first class service & I will definitely be using Jean again. Would 100% recommend her.
An affinity with and understanding of animals. Observational skills i.e. I know when a pet is unhappy or unwelll.
