About Joanne

Lucy dog was my surprise birthday gift at 5 years old, I'm now 54 and dogs have always been part of my life from wily Daschhunds, through Heinz 57 bundles of joy, Shih Tzus and Bullies I have lived with, cuddled, walked and loved many dogs so I know just how important it is for you to feel comfortable leaving your furry friend with a new person. Dogs are our friends, so we take the times playing and fussing, along with the cleaning up, walking , caring and feeding properly. They have their routines and patterns and so do you and I'll be sure to follow your lead on what they need; I like to find out as much as possible about you and your pet, their lives and habits; so that I can make the times we have together seamless, fun and less stressful for you.

I will walk your furry friend as often as they need and have a garden for convenience. I am able to board your pet in my house and will allow them on the sofa, if you do! Or visit your home to be a companion, walk or feed your pet. I can make quick visits for 30 mins or an hour) or stay longer to offer some play and companionship while you are away or busy. And, of course, I'll give them their treats!

In the pictures you can see just a few of my furry friends: Hugo & Olga the Huskies, Sasha the Shih Tzu, Sparky the Dachshund, Tengo the Schnauser and Maddie who is just herself. I am not always in the pictures, as I am usually taking them myself but these are just a few of my furry companions that I have either lived with or looked after.

I would prefer to take one vaccinated animal at a time, but would consider bonded pairs or more by agreement, I am happy to discuss your needs and find a way to help as I have room in my house and a sizable secluded garden. 

Having worked in education and senior management for decades; I am reliable, responsible and aware of the privilege it is to look after your pet. When you are busy, I will give them the love and care they need to thrive until you get back.

Joanne had excellent communication before and during our dog sitting visit. Joanne sent videos and pictures of Olga and Hugo to put my mind at ease. My dogs were spoilt with treats and cuddles. It is great to meet someone you can trust to look after your dogs like they are hers, but also trust to be in your home. I would definitely recommend Joanne and will 100% be using her services again. Many Thanks - Cat, Olga and Hugo
