I have looked after pets and homes for family members, friends, neighbours and their friends over many years, especially in the West Country. I've cared for up to 3 dogs at a time including lively collies and labs, rescue dogs with their own foibles and elderly dogs. Have cat sat regularly too.
I'm now enjoying "spreading my wings" and doing this in other regions of the country as well.
I will do all I can to reassure and comfort people's pets if they seem upset when the owner first leaves. I love walking, all the more so with a dog for company, and have honed my ball throwing skills with the collie especially. I relish seeing dogs having fun, whether in the park, on a beach, by a river or in woods.If it's a quiet potter round the streets for an older dog, I understand the importance of frequent stops for sniffing too.
I'm mostly retired/work freelance occasionally so have lots more free time now Non-smoker and car driver . Have a basic gov.uk DBS check and have public liability insurance for walking dogs..Other references can be supplied as well as reviews on this site
