About Steven

I am 47 years of age. My pets have either been springer or working cocker spaniels. As a family we are very sociable and love meeting other people and their pets. They are an especially important part of my family life. My dogs have always been very well trained and mainly spoilt by my children. Both my children are in high school.

I have previously worked in the banking and retail sectors for close to 30 years. However I am now available from Monday to Sunday from 6am to 9pm. I am very flexible and often available at short notice. I understand that each pet has unique needs. I am willing to travel a fair way if house sitting is requested. I am willing to collect dogs to help owners where possible. I have a full Uk driving license with zero points ( touch wood )

From a child with a variety of pets I consider myself to be super animal friendly. I look after each animal and home as if it were my own. Molly is so precious to our family and we understand this is the same for other people. I am more than happy to keep in regular contact whilst looking after your dog with messages and photos to ensure you have total peace of mind. I prefer to have a maximum of two dogs visiting at a time and try to ensure the dogs are compatible with each other to ensure the best doggy day care experience. Walking length is tailored to the owners requirements at all times. I do prefer recall where possible but will happily walk dogs on leads if required.

My favourite walk locally is a trip down to Erdigg. If I am going further afield the North Wales coastline or a long weekend in the Lake District

I would highly recommend Steven . He cared for our 2 Cavachons overnight at his home with his lovely family & dog Molly . He was professional , friendly , great with my dogs & went to the trouble of buying them extra food when I'd forgotten some . He sent regular photos & updates of how they were getting on & when I went to collect them they were happily relaxing with his family . We will definitely use him again in future & hopefully will use his house sitting services too.

I can't thank Steven and family enough for looking after my toy poodle so well. Ozzy stayed there for the first time for 3 days and nights and settled in well, both with the family and Molly, their friendly dog. Lots of cuddles and walks! Steven sent plenty of messages and lovely photos, which meant I could spend my time away worry-free. I have no hesitation in recommending Steven if you're looking for a caring, reliable sitter in a comfortable environment. We'll be back!

I speak English
+20 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
I have owned dogs over 30 years. I believe that a well walked, well stimulated and well fed dog is a happy dog. I try to keep it simple with the animals I look after by using familiar commands with plenty of praise. I tailor the exercise to the individual dogs needs and ensure plenty of games to ensure mental stimulation as well. My favourite breeds are spaniels and Labradors.
