Are you looking for a pet-sitter or dog-walker in the Canterbury/Eythorne area?



Do you want to feel confident leaving your pets at home, knowing they're well cared for?


Animals are usually much happier in their own environment, with familiar smells, sounds and their favourite places to sleep.  In a cattery or kennel, not only do they have the stress of being in a strange place, with different furnishings, routines and temperatures, but they can also pick up on the stress of other animals around them, causing extra anxiety.  There's also the possibility of them picking up fleas, ear mites and infections.

Asking friends, neighbours and family to look after your pets may be fine for an occasional few days away but for longer or more frequent trips, it can cause problems: they may not be available when you need them, or they may not have time to spend more than a few minutes visiting your pets. They may feel 'put upon' or they may not follow your instructions in the way you'd like them to.  And you have to remember to bring them back a gift.

With a regular pet-sitter, your pets get to know the sitter and can relax in their own home, feeling safe and secure.  You can give your instructions and know they'll be carried out, and if you're not happy with something, it's easy for you to say so.

Choosing a pet-sitter who is not only an animal lover but who is also reliable, experienced and conscientious, is essential, so you can leave your pets in safe, competent hands, allowing you to relax and enjoy your time away.  You can receive regular updates and can contact me at any time to find out how your pets are doing.

On your return you'll find your pets happy and safe - and ready to give you a warm welcome!

Once you're back home it is important for you to text, email or phone to let me know you're back and to make sure you are happy with the service I have provided.


Whether you need your dog(s) walked on a regular or ad-hoc basis, you can choose from half-hour, one-hour or two-hour walks.  Individual or group (maxium of three dogs) walks are available.  I have over 40 years' experience of walking other people's dogs, so am familiar with a large variety of sizes, breeds and personalities.


I am fully insured, have an enhanced CRB check (CRB = Criminal Records Bureau) and have references. Please note, I am unable to care for your pet(s) in my home.


If I am unable to walk or care for your pets because of unavailability or distance, I have an extensive list of walkers and sitters in the Canterbury, Whitstable, Chartham, Folkestone areas, which I can email you - please contact me if you would like a copy.
