Service Description

Is your dog digging up the roses? Howling at the neighbours? Too young to be left alone? Suffers from separation anxiety?

Sometimes we find that our dog needs a little extra TLC which, for whatever reason, you may not be able to provide as much as you'd like. Sometimes life throws unexpected circumstances at us and despite our best intentions, we find we don't have the time or ability to walk our dogs as much as they need. Perhaps you've acquired a new puppy, but it suddenly gets busy at work? Are you working late nights? Too tired to walk the mutt when you get home? Maybe you've broken a leg - and your pooches are desparate to go to the park?

Don't worry. I'm here to help!

My name is Vicki and I am a very experienced dog-walker and pet- (and house- ) sitter.

I'm a very responsible and caring lady, non-smoker, fit and healthy and keen to walk your dogs!

Because I work from home, I'm available during the day to visit, walk, play, cuddle and generally provide some human company for your furry friend while you are at work. Happy dogs are well-behaved dogs. Dogs need a good run during the day and they will happily sleep the afternoon away, leaving your roses and your neighbours in peace!

I walk both on and off lead, as per your instruction. I can collect your dog and take him or her to the park for a walk or off-lead runabout (behaviour issues permitting), or go for a gentle meander on-lead around your neighbourhood. I have walked young, energetic dogs and older, more sedate members of the canine community.

I am also available to look after your pets for longer periods in your home, for example, an afternoon, or full day if required.

Finally, I am a very experienced dog- and house-sitter and offer overnight companionship and care for both your home and pets in your absence.

Let me help out with your dog-walking or pet-sitting needs!

Bored dogs are a problem. Save your roses! Stay friends with the neighbours! Let me make sure your dogs get the exercise they need so you keep your sanity.

Review And Testimonials
Kelly A.
Vicky was wonderful, the dogs had lots of lovely long walks and cuddles. Vicky even let them up on the bed for morning snuggles. We got lots of photos and updates and they looked so happy. Having someone live in and care for our fur babies with such love allowed us to enjoy our holiday and she even sorted out issues with a gas leak, we are already planning our next trip and will be booking her again, our dogs loved her ???

Victoria looked after our family dog and cat over Easter. She was very personable, friendly and warm as well as extremely helpful and flexible in working with us which we thoroughly appreciated. Victoria was great with communicating with us while we were away and provided lots of updates and pictures of our pets. Victoria kept the house tidy and clean and the animals were well loved and cared for which enabled us to be stress free and enjoy our trip. Would highly recommend Victoria, thank you for your help.

Victoria was amazing! Three weeks of doggy heaven while we were away on holidays. Our labradoodle loves Vic, has the best fun, lots of walks, outings and socialising which we were super happy about. Victoria is so reliable, friendly, professional and loves our dog! Will always try to book Vick.
