House & Pet Sitting

Your pets in the comfort of their own home

I cater for a wide variety of animals from hamsters to horses! Whether you have a cat that needs feeding once a day or a whole menagerie of animals with time consuming routines, I can help! Any amount of time serviceable, from one day to a number of weeks.

 

HOUSE SITTING 

This is the perfect option if your pet does not like kennels or catteries. Their routines will not be disrupted and they can enjoy their familiar surroundings to keep them relaxed while you’re not around. It will also put your mind at rest knowing they’re settled and happy and that your house is being looked after at the same time.
A free consultation will be arranged beforehand to discuss their routines, what they’re fed, when and how often they’re walked and their vet details etc. Additionally, what your other animals (if any) require. Also any house duties, for instance putting bins out, bringing post in, keeping the house clean and tidy etc.

 

HOME SERVICES

It’s reassuring to know that whilst you’re away someone is checking on the house to make sure all is in order. Whether you’re going away for a few days or a number of weeks, whether you have animals or not, I can look after your home giving you peace of mind. I can offer daily visits or more/ less if you require. Services include:

  • Watering indoor and outdoor plants (including vegetable patches)
  • Keeping the house neat and tidy, as you left it
  • Keeping a check on alarms and ensuring all your security measures are in place
  • Drawing curtains
  • Turning lights on and off
  • Bringing post in
  • Putting the rubbish out
  • Pipes and boilers checked during the cold winter months

 

PET SITTING

This service is available if it is not necessary to stay in the house but to pop in daily to feed cats, chickens, ponies etc and/or to assist with house duties like collecting post and putting bins out etc. Also, if you go out for a few hours and need someone to stay with your pet in your house while you’re gone this can also be arranged. One client of mine has a dog with separation anxiety, therefore I sit with the dog while his owner is out which keeps him calm and also puts his owner’s mind at rest.
Again, a free consultation will be arranged to discuss your pet(s) and house routines.
