About Me.....

I am most definitely a 'pet person' and have been lucky enough to have owned or been around animals for pretty much as long as I can remember. From cats, dogs, horses, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, fish, a tortoise, two bee hives and a corn snake! Even family holidays growing up were spent on a farm where we got to be hands on.

I have lived in Warren Row since 2007 with my husband and our various animals, currently 3 dogs, 2 cats and 10 chickens. 

I never tire of the fantastic walks around the area and there are still footpaths we've yet to explore.

Owning dogs has led me into various associated hobbies and interests. I attend training classes every week and compete in agility.

I love learning new skills and activities with all three of my dogs, providing them with variety in both their physical and mental stimulation.

I completely understand how important and individual pets are and that is why I will care for yours like one of the family.

I worked for a local professional fundraising organisation for ten years, between 2009 - 2019, directly involved with some fantastic campaigns including one of the UK's largest dog welfare charities. My home and working life have been positively 'doggy'! 

My aim is to provide a reputable dog walking and pet care service, one with the same high standards that I would expect from anyone looking after my own animals.
