About Claire

Hello :)

I have been a dog lover since we rescued our lab cross from Dogs Trust about 15 years ago. Since then I've walked and looked after sharpeis, staffys, labradors, lurchers, shetland sheepdogs, bichon frises, cockapoos and my own cavachon Ginny (instagram @ginnyjohners). I am currently studying Animal Management Level 3 at Sparsholt Colege and am hoping to go back to University to study veterinary Physiotherapy, specialising in dog care. If I ever go to a social event youll see me sat on the floor more interested in the dog than the party! Last summer I was also the co manager at Hoppin' Holiday Hutches which included boarding rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises and hamsters so would be happy to care for any small mammals you have (I also have experience in handling and feeding ferrets). On my college course I have also been training in the husbandry and basic care of tortoises, reptiles and snakes, so would be happy to care for these too.

I have trained my dog from a puppy with recall, swimming, basic commands and how to fetch. She is also very used to hiking through the woods or going to the river, I've got my walking boots and waterproof coat ready to brace any weather. I understand that every dog has its own personality and know the importance of gaining a dogs trust before either letting them off the lead, or taking them into an unknown situation. For this reason I would want to meet the dog(s) with you before agreeing to take on any job to make sure I am up to the standard that your animal needs, as the welfare of the dog is forever the peak of importance.

I am happy to do overnight stays and visits, as long as it doesnt interfere with my college timetable Monday - Thursday: 8 - 4. I also volunteer with the Riding for the Disabled Association on Saturday mornings. If you have any questions I would be happy to have a chat before you make any decisions :)
