About Angela

Hello! I am Angela and my base is the New Forest area, although I cover quite a large area; more
on that later.  

I have been pet and house sitting part-time since 2016, and in February 2023 started doing it full-time. Although the majority of my clients have been dogs, I have also looked after cats, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, chickens, fish and horses. I have been able to gain experience of looking after toy breeds, as well as large dogs. I have looked after excited 4-month-old puppies, to dogs who are commencing their training journey, all the way through to very elderly dogs who are more leisurely in their exercise routine and require support with certain care and medical needs.  

I have my own vehicle and have the appropriate business insurance to transport your pets if required. I am DBS checked. I also hold a Canine First Aid qualification. 

I have lived in rural areas and most of my pet sits are in the forest or countryside, meaning I am used to being in remote places. I have also looked after dogs in towns and cities. I am in the fortunate position
that I can travel quite far for my pet and house sits and I have had sits in Christchurch and Mudeford, throughout the New Forest, up to north of Salisbury (Stonehenge-way) and across towards Shaftesbury, as well as east to Portsmouth. I can go further afield than this as well.  

One of main hobbies is walking. I am sure to keep to the exercise, as well as the enrichment/play time, needs and routines of your pets, but if your dog(s) is up for an adventure, I love to explore local areas and new places so they can expect to be taken on a yomp with me.  

Having previously spent 20 years working in social care environments, I am strict on security, safety and confidentiality. I take looking after your home seriously, and I understand the needs of homeowners in looking after their home, as well as their pets. I am keen on communication to ascertain the full needs of your pets, and your home, so that I can look after them in the best way possible. I understand that leaving your pets in the care of someone else can feel unsettling for you, and sometimes your pets. I am rigorous on keeping to the routines and care plan of your pets, as well as giving them the time and play to get used to me, in order to help them settle quickly. I am in the lovely position that I have repeat pet sits and it is so heartwarming when the pets greet me in a friendly and open manner when I return.  

 

SERVICES OFFERED:  

Anywhere, I can provide:  

- Pet/animal sitting in the pet(s)’s home.  

- Looking after a small holding.  

If you are within or close to the New Forest/Bournemouth/East Dorset/South Wiltshire area, I will do a pre-sit visit to meet you and your pet(s) so they get to know me. If you are further afield, I will do a pre-sit virtual call with you so we can meet, talk through your pet(s) needs and I can get an understanding of your house and where important things, such as pet food, are stored.  

 

In the Ringwood-Fordingbridge-Downton-Alderholt-Damerham-Rockbourne area, I can provide the following services:  

- Adhoc/one-off dog walking (standard 1-hour long
walk), e.g. your regular dog walker is on holiday, you are ill and unable to
walk your pooch(es) for a couple of days, you have a day trip planned. 

- Cat/kitten/small animal (rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rodents, fish, reptiles, chickens, etc) visits – let in/out, feed and fresh water, clean any mess and litter trays/cages/tanks/runs, etc, clean bowls, brush, cuddles, fuss and playtime. Chores such as plant watering and refuse disposal can be carried out as required.  

 

Please note, I can provide equine care as follows:  

- No riding.  

- Feed and fresh water, turn out, muck out stables, poo pick fields, bring in, brush horse.  

 

Although I am new to PawShake, I have been pet sitting for a number of years, and can provide reviews/testimonials upon request.  

Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you and your pets.  

Warm wishes,  

Angela
