I'm Vanessa & since being a child I've always been around animals and genuinely believe they are part of the family. I'm the proud owner of two beautiful cats, Bud & Stella, & have grown up surrounded by Yorkshire Terriers, Border Collies, cats, hamsters, mice, fish, terrapins, birds, Jack Russells & a Pomeranian to name a few.
I offer a personal service, fully tailored to you & your dog(s) needs. As I have always had pets myself, I understand that all animals have unique characteristics & needs.
For your peace of mind, I am DBS (formerly CRB) checked, fully insured & will treat your dog as one of my own. I'm a vetted & approved member of Pet Sitters Alliance, and have over 10 years experience. I am also a qualified pet first aider. We are fully licensed by Bolton Council.
If you find there aren't enough hours in the day to walk your dog or you're fed up of the miserable weather, I'll come to your home and exercise/visit your dog for you. I can give them fresh food & water, playtime, & lots & lots of cuddles. I also do the little things like open/close curtains, put the bins out/in etc. Rest assured, I will only walk your dog(s) on their own, not in a group with other, unfamiliar dogs.
Lots of dogs dislike being placed in kennels when their owner goes on holiday. When your dog stays with us, they share our home & garden as if it were their own. We only board dogs from one household at once, helping your best pal have a true home from home experience. We want your dog to feel loved and nutured whilst you are away and will follow their usual routine as possible eg. walking/exercise times & length, feeding times, bed time etc. I recommend you bring your dog's bedding, food & bowl, toys etc. All these familiar things help your dog settle in & relax. Each additional dog from the same household stays for half price.
I can come to your home beforehand to discuss your particular needs and of course meet your beloved pet(s). This meet & greet is free.
