About Katherine

I am an experienced pet sitter and animal lover who has spent over a year looking after dogs, cats and other animals for owners who are going away on holiday. I have looked after a bunny, ragdoll cats, a beagle, Romanian rescue dogs, a Bichon frise, a cocker spaniel, a Keeshond, Labradors and poodle crosses among others. I am not allowed to keep pets in the house where I live, but I absolutely adore animals and this is a perfect chance for me to spend time giving love to them! I will always treat your pet as if it is my own and look after it with the utmost care and attention. I am available to visit your pet, to walk your dogs and to housesit, and to do whatever is required to ensure the happiness and comfort of the animals in my care.

Specifically: I can be available according to what works best for you. I am a student and a writer and spend most of my time working from home.

For dog walking and home visits: morning and afternoon is preferred but I can be flexible. I will stay with your pets for as long as is decided and walk dogs as the owner requires, usually between 30-90 minutes per day (but more or less depending on the need of each pet). I generally take the dogs I look after to the local park or green space, or can just walk them around the neighbourhood if that is preferred. I can feed your animals, administer oral medication, clean up after them, and also take in the mail or water plants if that is required. I will also make sure the door is always locked if I am not in the property and return your keys to the designated place. 

For house sits: I will stay for the length of time required, and will always treat your house with the same respect that I treat my own. Home security is paramount at all times and the house will look exactly as it did when you left, on your return.

I will always ensure your pet's routine remains the same as it does if you were at home with them. I will give them boundless love and attention at all times, and will provide regular updates (with photos and videos). For me, this is not a job but a passion. I look forward to hearing from you!
