I love animals (veggie, aspiring vegan) and will stop to give them attention where ever I am.
Full time dog walker/pet sitter in the Worthing - Littlehampton area. I am canine first aid trained (renewed Feb 2019) and have just renewed my DBS at the beginning of 2019 (Previously known as CRB).
Whilst doing drop-ins I will of course put the bins out, collect the post, open/close curtains & water plants etc. I am a very tidy person & treat your home in a respectful way that I would my own.
I have now been working as a professional pet sitter and dog walker for over 4 years, although I have been looking after family & friends pets for far longer.
I am very experienced with cats - having 2 of my own - and love spending time in the company of dogs. I have experience looking after smaller pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs (skinny pigs), chickens, fish, gecko’s, tropical frogs and other exotics.
I am a very active active person - I’ve completed 15th marathons (Brighton, 3 forts, South Downs, Beachy Head & QE midnight Marathon being some of my favourites) and I’ve been fortunate enough to get a place in RideLondon 100 twice.
I am always training for the next marathon in my quest to one day reachable magical 100 club.
I love running, biking & walking & regularly run with dogs on the South Downs.
I'm a car enthusiast & regularly go to Silverstone for small club meetings & National events. I enjoy working on my cars & spent far too much time working on my mk1 mx5, it will probably never be quite finished!
I try and keep my calendar as up to date as possible - but feel free to send me a message if you aren't sure as to my availability as things can change - or I might only be busy for a few hours.
I have lots of recommendations available if you would like to see them (both on here, my business Facebook Page & Trustpilot) & I am always happy to meet & greet new customers and their pets.
I am registered as self employed as a sole trader under the name of 'Corals Pet Sitting'
A little about my own pets: I have a cat called "Silverstone" - I found her wandering the corridor of a hotel on my way to Silverstone circuit on a freezing October night. I snuck her into our hotel room for the night with the hotels permission where she promptly spent the night cuddling up. She was skinny & tiny with very matted fur and starving so I took her to the nearest vets in the morning where she was scanned for a microchip to no avail. The vets kept her & searched for her owner but no one came forward. By this point I was in love and phoned them daily to see if anyone came forward. Eventually they said I could rehome her if i was still interested - 250 miles and 8 hours later I had collected the now named Silverstone and she has now been living with us for one and a half 6 years and gets bigger & fluffier by the day!
August 2018: I have just taken on a new recruit - a female cat called “Luna” with a similar sad story, she is a lovely vocal cat who is settling into her new home very well.
I also keep tropical fish/shrimps, I have one large tank currently set up and have a large floor tank I am impatiently waiting to set up!
Coral came over to walk my dog when I was out for the evening. I received pictures and an update, and Megan was happy when I got home so all went well.
Great communication! Will use again
I have been pet sitting for friends and family for the past three ... Plus years. Since being asked more and more through word of mouth I've realised how much I enjoy spending time with others pets.
I will happily stay in the pets home when owners don't want pets left alone. I have stayed anything from one night up to over a month when a friend visited family in New Zealand and Australia and I had their dog and 2 cats to look after.
I will happily pet sit, walk, pop in & out and feed pets .... Whatever you and your pets need whilst you are out. I am an early riser so am able to walk pets before I go out to work.
I usually pet sit dogs and cats but I am often asked to look after smaller pets such as rabbits, hamsters and gerbils.
my current pets include a shorthair cat, 2 cockatiels, tropical fish & shrimps and an Axolotl. I also have all of the neighbours cats who regularly come & visit me! I am planning on getting my own rescue dog at some point in 2016/2017 once my garden has been made secure (hence why I don't offer pet-sitting in my own home).
