I am an experienced dog handler (full time DBS checked teacher) who works as a dog sitter during the School Summer and other holidays. In addition to Dog Buddy's Insurance, I have my own Pet sitting insurance through PBI .
I have rehomed several dogs from rescue charities such as Tia Greyhound & Lurcher rescue and the Retired Greyhounds Trust. Currently, I have two dogs, a friendly retired greyhound, named Auryn and a rescued 'Jerry Green ' grey, Aramis. We usually walk in nearby Alfreton Park but there are also safe fields and common land a short walk away Our garden is large, organic (am a keen gardener but don't use any chemicals and planting is dog friendly) and has secure wooden 6ft fences, ideal for dog sitting sighthounds! There are lots of mature trees for shade so plenty of cool spots for dogs to relax during the hot Summer months. Decor is relaxed as this is a very dog friendly home and dogs use sofas and chairs etc. I only pet sit during the School holidays and weekends, but being at home during this time, means your pets have my full attention and care and being a keen gardener, dog often enjoy pottering (or running!) around outside as I am gardening in addition to their usual walks.
The local Alfreton Vets is a five minute drive away and offers 24/7 'Vets Now' call out care in case of emergencies. Both of my dogs are fully insured, vaccinated and also have kennel cough vaccine/spray to protect visiting guests.
I am currently available weekends - but, apart from the first week of the school summer holidays I am available for the rest of them.
