About Ruth

I am a responsible and reliable person who always puts the wellbeing of animals first. I currently have a dog, a cat and 2 rabbits and have always had pets of many different types. When working with animals I prioritise building a trusting relationship with them so that they can get the most out of interactions and feel safe and happy while with me.

I have experience caring for:

Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Guinea pigs, Rats, Degus, Mice, Hamsters, Fish 

I am happy to look after other domestic animals too

I have experience walking dogs from very small to very large, including rescue dogs and those with socialisation and anxiety issues, and those who don't have great walking manners. I can do basic training with dogs on request, including how to walk nicely on a lead. My family rescued Malamutes and Husky mixes, some with real fear around humans and other dogs, so I am used to working slowly to build trust with animals and walking larger dogs.

I also do some work at a local cat rescue centre socialising cats who are nervous around people or need positive outlets for their energy. 

I wanted to join pawshake because I love spending time with all animals and am always grateful to have the opportunity to meet and bond with more animals.

I would love to hear from you and find out how I can help your pet have the best possible experience so you can enjoy your time out without any worries.

I look forward to meeting your animal! 

(for the health and wellbeing of all the animals in my care I can only take those with all appropriate vaccinations and flea treatments into my home - however I can visit those who are not treated in your home)

I am always really happy when I can book Ruth to look after my cats. I get updates and when I return home the cats are fine. If Ruth is available, she is my first choice to take care of my cats.

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English
+5 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
I have volunteered at a local cat rescue centre for 6 years, working on socialising cats who are anxious/aggressive around people and cats who are very needy and struggling with an adoption centre setting. I also do some grooming and working with new kittens getting them used to humans. I have rescued dogs most of my life including some very large dogs with behavioural issues, and have done walking at a dog adoption centre, specifically walking dogs who needed to learn how to walk on a lead. I have done lots of training of my adopted dogs, ranging from basic skills to agility and more advanced obedience, and have done a little commercial training.
