About Paula
Ever since I was a little girl my family has had pets. I grew up around dogs, chickens, rabbits, budgies and guinea pigs and loved every minute of it. As soon as I turned 20 I got my own dog (pictured in my profile pic) a French Bulldog named Tux, I absolutely adore her. Somehow, she has turned me into an even bigger animal lover! When I was 21 I took care of a friends daughters turtles for a year when she went to America and adored them. I am 25 now and trying to become a qualified pet groomer. While I'm keenly searching, I knew this would be perfect for me to fill in my days with something I truly love doing - looking after and caring for animals....

Pet Sitting - Apr 2, 2017
We can't begin to thank Paula enough for her care and love of our two babies over the past weekend. We needed to be away for a family function and were fairly nervous about the prospect of leaving our older dog and our 10 week old puppy. From the minute we met Paula, we knew we had found a wonderful person to truly look after our dogs. She not only walked, fed and played with them - but cuddled, toilet trained and chased after our rambunctious and hilarious pup!!! The photo updates we got throughout our time away set our 6 year old daughters mind at ease and allowed us to have a fantastic weekend away without any worry. We came home to two well fed and happy pets and a gorgeously clean and fresh home! Thank you - Thank you - thank you! Our dogs and house were in fantastic hands and we could not have asked for more!

I couldn't have asked more for my fur babies while I was away! We've never left our dogs in someone else care as we've been nervous! Paula eased all my worries! I received photos and updates every day how they were! Paula went above and beyond my expectations. Made sure the dogs were loved and had fun during our time away. I can't Reccomended her anymore. We will definitely be using her again even just for walks while I'm busy with work. I'm so pleased! Thanks Paula!! Xxxx

The first time I left my dog with Paula was the first time I'd left her with anyone else, ever. I knew straightaway that she was in good hands. Paula was super friendly and lovely, letting my nervous dog take her time to get to know her new surroundings. She was super attentive and asked lots of questions about the health, habits, diet, likes and dislikes of my pooch and I walked away totally confident & comfortable that she would be alright. Cant say enough good things about Paula, she's the best.

Paula is an increibly friendly and caring person with a geniune love for animals that is evident immediately upon meeting her. I'm consistently impressed with the perfect balance of warmth and professionalism she brings to a role she clearly loves. I have absolutely no hesitation in making her my primary provider of pet care.
