About Kirsten
Animals are a passion of mine and I've just returned after 4 years in London without any pets, so definitely keen to surround myself with them again. I was a volunteer dog walker there and worked with and grew to know a range of breeds.

We have always had our own animals- birds, rabbits, rats, fish and small/medium dogs (2 toy poodles and a collie) ourselves. We currently have one relaxed 8 year old toy poodle at home. I have trained him myself and take him out to dog parks, on walks and to obstacle courses daily. He is very well socialised and is used to being around other animals. I live with my partner, who can look after our dog if needed! If you'd like your pet to have some socialisation, I'm also happy to bring him with me, just let me know. Harley is in the top class in training and also does Rally O obedience courses weekly.

I’ve worked with lots of breeds including:
-poodles/poodle mixes
-labs
-retrievers
-beagles
-border collies
-blue heelers
-bull mastiffs
-great Danes
-pugs
-weimaraners
-staffies
-rotties

I am happy to look after multiple animals, water plants, collect mail etc with overnight stays, just ask :). Happy to answer any questions so please get hold of me any time. I am a primary school teacher, so I get police checks regularly and I’m very trustworthy and respectful.

It’s great to be able to go away and not have to worry about Tiger! The pictures and updates are lovely, and I’ve already rebooked Kirsten for some more pet sitting :)

Thank you Kirsten for your wonderful service. Loved the photo updates while we were away. You will definitely be our first choice when we go away again to look after our fur baby.💕
