About Sinéad

Hello, my name is Sinéad and firstly let me explain that anyone who knows me will tell you that anything four legged always captures my heart and I love being around them and the joy that they bring.


I have had 3 dogs in my lifetime who were my absolute world, sadly their old age caught up with them and now I currently have a cat who is so loving and very affectionate.


You can be assured that I will look after your pet like they're my own, giving them a lot of love and affection. I understand how hard it is to leave them and I want to be able to offer you a full personalised service whereby there is as much communication as you would like while your pet is in my care.
Ideally I would love to build up a regular list of clients and build that rapport with both yourself as the owner and your pet.

I'm a full time mum looking after my baby so your dog or cat will be never on their own and they will receive lots of attention.

I'll be here with them to ensure their safety at all times. 

I live in a flat and it has a secure entry system so they could never escape. They would have access to all rooms and I don't mind if they sleep on any of the furniture.

The services that I offer are dog and cat boarding, dog walking and doggy day care. I will also do drop in requests but both these and dog walking are unfortunately limited to the local Kingswood and nearby surrounding areas as I don't currently drive. 

Thank you very much for reading and I look forward to hearing from you soon. 

***Please note that I am disappointed and saddened to have received a 1 star review, the comments of which are entirely fabricated and done by the owner to try to get the service for free...that been said, it has taught me that I need to cover myself a lot more and with home visits, will take time stamped pictures of me arriving and leaving your property***

I can assure you as per my other reviews show that all bookings that I accept, I fully commit too and I do enjoy spending time with cats and dogs alike.

My dog Silva was impeccably looked after, very happy. The communication while we were away was fantastic and reassured us that all was well. Thank you Sinéad.

Home Visits
Joe, 2023-12-28

I booked three home visits for my cat (Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day), each lasting at least 30 minutes as per Pawshake policy. My access logs and security system both show Sinéad’s pattern of activity: on the first day (Christmas Eve) entering at 17:12 and departing at 17:19 (when the system shows she turned off the lights), on the second day (Christmas Day) not visiting at all, and on the third day (Boxing Day) visiting at 11:00 and departing at 11:30.

Switching the lights off was against my instructions, I had configured the lights to come on and off on a pattern so my cat wasn’t left in total darkness. The hallway lights remained off until 11:00 on Boxing Day, meaning for 2 consecutive evenings it was pitch black. My light sensors confirm this, showing an absence of light in the hallway from 17:19 on Christmas Eve until 11:00 on Boxing Day, the limited winter daylight notwithstanding.

The picture I was sent on Christmas Day at 12:30 shows clearly a lack of daylight (taken in the same lighting as the previous day at 5pm), despite her claims the visit took place at 12:00-12:30 when the daylight would’ve been at its brightest. I have no record of any lights being on during Christmas Day.

On Boxing Day, the system shows she entered at 11:00 when she turned on the hallway light and visited for the first time in 42 hours. I returned home later that day and I’ve never heard my cat meow so much before I’ve even opened the door, and l’ve had sitters come a few times now. He’s been glued to my lap for the entire period I’ve been home since.

To summarise, I’ve paid for 90 minutes over 3 days, and received a total of around 37 minutes and a very distressed cat. Had I known she couldn’t devote the contractual 30 minutes a day over Christmas I would’ve found alternative arrangements, but instead we’ve been misled. Sinéad claims to have visited every day, and suggests my system is faulty, but she is unable to provide evidence to support this. Consider this review, and the rather contradictory statement from Sinéad: “I love being around them and the joy that they bring”, and think hard about booking this sitter for home visits.
