About Stephanie

Hello,

I studied Animal husbandary at college and have a degree in Animal Behaviour and welfare.

I worked at a vets while studying, upon finishing university I worked at shepreth wildlife park where I taught keystage 2 & 3 about animals and animal husbandry. I then got a job as a zookeeper at whipsnade zoo where I worked in the African section looking after Rhinos, bongos, giraffes hippos. 

Unfortunately I moved into my own flat and needed a change in career. Since leaving my family home where I had a dog (miniature Schnauzer) and a cockatiel I moved into my flat with my African Pygmy Hedgehog, George. George unfortunately passed in 2022 and I’m desperate to have some pets but it’s not the right time for me to own an animal. Therefore I think I can scratch my itch and maybe help the pet scratch theirs by providing my service to look after them. 

I have added photos of myself as I do not currently have pets I have no other pictures to upload, the horse is my friends who I regularly ride and help on weekends I spend with her and also help when she's on holiday.

The dog is my sisters where I regularly doggy sit for her.

And George is my late hedgehog.

Services I provide are:

Dog walking can be multiple times a day

Daily visit to feed, play and check on your animal.

Overnight stays, I'm happy to stay at your house while you're away to look after your animal.

Grooming, happy to groom any animals if needed.

I cannot bring any animals to mine due to having an insecure garden.

Happy to discuss any other needed for your animal.

Contact pre-booking was prompt and professional. However, we agreed to two visits a day and on two occasions Stephanie only visited once. We had video updates on the first three days, which we were very grateful for and wished they lasted for the reminder of our holidays.

Stephanie was a perfect sitter, I'd booked 2 visits for the day to feed and water my 3 bunnies. Would recommend.
