About Emma

 Hi, my name is Emma 

I'm an experienced pet owner and I’ve lived with doggos most of my life. Our first dog as a small child
was Heidi the Dachshund, then we had a boxer plus an assortment of cats, several hamsters and a budgie. As an adult I’ve had a mutt who had the characteristics of a collie, two Dobermans (still my favourite dogs), and Max. Max is half Karakachan, which is one of those huge dogs that guards sheep against wolves in the mountains of Europe, and half Barak which is a Bulgarian hunting dog; he lives with my partner in Bulgaria. I have trained all my dogs, with guidance of a professional trainer. 

I grew up on a farm so I'm completely at home feeding chickens, ducks, looking after horses (was riding as soon as I could walk), cats and a whole host of small animals. My own cat as a teenager Tiggy adopted
me – she appeared on the farm, jumped onto my shoulder one day when I was mucking out the stables and then stayed. I was that child who came home with an assortment of sick, injured or stray animals and wanted to take care of them. Every year I looked after all the orphan lambs, getting up all hours of the night nursing them back to health when their mums couldn’t. 

I have experience dog boarding and day care abroad, including a very young puppy for 2 months, and volunteered at a horse sanctuary in Gozo. I also have experience house-sitting in the UK and I have caretaken yachts abroad, not exactly a house, but the same principles of being trustworthy, reliable, conscientious, respectful of other people’s property, can follow instructions and communicate
regularly.  

I currently split my time between UK with my elderly father and Bulgaria. I work from home as a
psychology and TEFL teacher, so if you have Wi-Fi I can work from your home. These days I like to walk, so having a dog with me for company makes it so much more enjoyable. 

If your dogs are okay travelling in cars, I would take them on outings with me and to see my dad; he loves dogs so they would certainly get lots of attention. 

As a mature lady, having owned many homes, I’m calm, responsible and I know how to look after property, and what to do if things go wrong. For me a successful sit is when the owners can go away and relax, then come back to a tidy home, happy animals and plants that are still alive.  

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss your requirements, know anything else about me or meet up. I'm a non-smoker. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
