About Neil

I am a 56 year old retired chartered surveyor and animal lover. I have a lifetime's worth of experience of owning both dogs and cats and am regularly called upon to walk and sit friend's and relative's pets. 

We currently have three cats living with us in Hasland, Chesterfield- Colin, Arthur and Mabel. 

I love walking and the outdoors and now that I have more free time would like to offer my services as a reliable and trustworthy walker and sitter for your pets. I have my own transport and am happy to take your dog on walks to places and for durations as agreed- either on or off lead. I am happy to take multiple dogs from the same household but I do not mix dogs from different houses. 

As we have cats at home, I cannot host at our house but am very happy to offer 24 hour live- in care at your premises when you are away, thus avoiding the need for kennels and, as an added bonus, having a physical presence in your home whilst you are away. If you have cats or other small pets I can also offer one or multiple vists per day for feeding, litter cleaning and giving fuss etc.

I have a current Emergency Canine Care certificate via Dog First Aid Training (dog-first-aid.com) and am also a St John Ambulance first aider so know what to do in an emergency.

Booking via Pawshake comes with free Public Liability Insurance plus free vetinary care should anything go wrong whilst your pet is in my care. Full details on the main site. 

As well as being a retired professional, I am also a Trustee and Secretary of the local Hasland Theatre Company. I can provide excellent references- both character and in relation to pet care.

It is important that we all get along and I am most happy to visit you for a free of charge scoping discussion before any committment is made. I aim to operate a successful business as a result of long- term clients with repeat bookings and, as such, it is within both of our interests that the services and care that I offer are every bit as good at that which you offer yourselves.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Neil

Neil is a lovely person, genuinely loves our dogs and takes great care of our house while we're away too. We were initially on the fence about dog sitting but having worked with Neil, we can't do anything but recommend it, particularly with him.

Having recently moved into a new area, with no family or friends nearby, finding Neil to take care of Lola has been a godsend!

Neil is clearly a true animal lover and has gone over and above to accommodate the dates we need at short notice. On first meeting, we were both charmed and reassured that Neil could be trusted to take care of our precious cat and he has been true to his word.

Importantly, Neil is a friendly and open communicator and responds quickly to messages. We couldn’t be happier that we found him and can now plan our trips away safe in the knowledge that we have excellent care in place.
