About Olivia
You'd be barking mad not to let me take care of your pet!

As a long time dog owner and life-time pet lover, I am a confident handler of most dogs and will treat your pet with utmost respect, care and attention, and will be sure to maintain any obedience or training that your dog requires on a daily basis.

I currently have my own dog, a 3 year old male border collie, who is a small-medium sized dog and is very calm, obedient and friendly. He gets along well with other dogs, or completely ignores them, but is not aggressive. If your dog has been socialised, and isn't prone to snapping or fighting, then there will be no issue on my end.

I am St. Lucia based, with valid open licence and medium sized car to transport most small-medium sized pets if needed (i.e., to a park, from house to house, to the vet).
I have the necessary dog care items such as pet food, a spare leash, a spare collar and a dog bed, if it is needed.
I am very active and can keep up with high energy dogs, and am also accustomed to both docile/calm and playful/active pets. I live with my brother and mum, both of whom love dogs, and have the necessary skills to care for them too.
My yard is large enough for a dog to have space to run around, sniff, lie in the shade etc.
No small children live in my house, and there is always someone at home, or within 15 minutes drive of home. My own dog is rarely left alone throughout the day.

EXPECTATIONS
Prior to caring/walking your pet, I will consult you/the owner about the pet's special needs, character, likes/dislikes, fears, triggers, dietary needs, sleep/rest needs, allergies/health issues and any medical needs (such as tablets, tick protection, injuries to be aware of, which vet to take the pet to in the unlikely event of an unexpected issue). Pets will be carefully watched and appropriately cared for in any and all cases in which the pet may suddenly need either extra or medical attention. I can assure high quality and responsible care for your pet - I am very observant, strong minded and can manage pets that require a tougher hand, but I am naturally loving and playful in nature. I am highly attuned to subtle signals of animal behaviour (i.e., animal behaving abnormally, showing signs of hunger, showing they need to go outside, high energy indicating they need to be walked/played with etc. )


COVID UPDATE: Initial contact will be via phone or video-call, and once we can confirm that neither party is ill or has been overseas in the last 14 days etc., then I will arrange with you a meet-and-greet, during which time I will also bring my dog along so that our pets can interact. This will be a no contact meet-and-greet (ie no handshakes etc).

I look forward to looking after your pet!

Olivia was so easy to get on with and though Georgie,our rescue dog was very nervous,she settled in quickly. Thanks for saving the day Olivia. We hope to be able to use your services again.
