We have extensive experience with animals and I provide a safe, fun and reliable environment giving your dog exercise, socialisation and stimulation with lots of love and attention.

We specialise in small group walks. This allows your dog to get to know their walking pals, have plenty of play time, sniffing – and anything else they enjoy.

Towel dried, happy and treated if allowed, your pet is returned home.

Puppy training, basic training on command: sit, stay, leave and wait. Plenty of fun and interaction given whilst you are at work, so your puppy is happy when you return.

Exercising a dog can make a huge difference to their behaviour, health and happiness. Each day is treated individually ensuring any health needs are taken into account.

As an animal lover and carer with many years experience, it is appreciated how important it is to continue your animals routine.

Group Walks

Come and join one of our morning, lunchtime or afternoon walks which will give your dog a chance to socialise and run around off the leash – with your permission. Please advise when arranging a walk that I tailor the dog’s personalities so that older, calmer dogs do not get too tired being chased around by over-excited pups.

Solo Walks

For dogs who do not socialise well and prefer their own company. Anytime but usually quieter times early morning or late afternoon are best.


Individual attention your cat demands in the best place – your home – while you are away, on holiday or for business, we will come to your home and look after your cat.

Your cat is guaranteed lots of regular cuddles, play and TLC and medication if required.

20 years caring for cats guarantees a wealth of experience in matters of feline health, behaviour and wellbeing.

Alternative to boarding

Cats are creatures of habit and become stressed when they need to be taken elsewhere. We offer a stress free cat sitting service for your feline companion in the comfort of their own home.

With our lives becoming more stressful and demanding it is good to know there are alternatives to taking care of your pets. Work commitments can sometimes take us away at short notice and there isn’t always care or a last minute emergency.

We will give you peace of mind when you need to get away for some well needed rest.

You no longer need to ask favours or rely on family and friends. You know your cat’s best interests are at heart.

Cat Sit

  • Provide a service operating 365 days of the year
  • Offer daily visit to owner’s home where cats feel most at ease in familiar surroundings
  • Cats don’t like disruption in their routine
  • A tailored service to suit your needs whether long or short term – or even emergencies
  • Gives you peace of mind when you need to get away for some well needed rest

Please note that I am not always able to respond immediately due to walking or driving but I will reply as soon as possible.

Having been a cat owner most of my life, I understand the frustrations and anxiety that can surround leaving your companions and buddies. We are here to help so please feel free to contact me.
