Service Description
I am unavailable for overnight pet sitting from 14th to 29th October. But I am still available for daily dog walking during that time! 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
Vicki did a wonderful job taking care of our dog and I was able to relax and not worry knowing she was in capable hands.

Best doggy sitter ever :) All 3 dogs were happy and calm after spending a week with Vicki. They really loved having Vicki look after them . I guess that they were actually sad to see her leave...Thank you!

Victoria was the most wonderful house and pet sitter for us. She looked after our very loveable and energetic 10 mth old labradoodle pup. We were worried about leaving her for so long (5 weeks) being so young, especially as we had been working really hard to be consistent with routines, training and reinforcing behaviour we wanted. But Victoria was fantastic right from the first meeting. Our pup was very excited, and utterly spoilt in the right way, while still having regular training, walks, TLC, and attention. Victoria has a really calm and affectionate ease with animals, and is attentive to their needs, while balancing 'human house rules' (as we gave her a long list of how we were trying to train our pup). It meant that we could really relax and enjoy our long planned for holiday, knowing our pup was in the best hands, not just minded, but genuinely cared for, and we got updates while we were away. We came home to a pup that was super happy, content, healthy and had even progressed in her training!!
