About Emma

Please Note *** I have Cats ***

About How I Started:
I started looking after dogs in my own house around 2 years ago...
I had take temporary leave from work due to medical reason, but as recovery was slow and several months had passed, I decided to advertise as a pet sitter locally. Several more months passed.... and I'm still at home, so I created a website ( - by this time I was looking after dogs 2-3 days per week and on occasional weekends.
1 year had passed and I had not returned to work... and I decided that I was not going to go back to work at all and wanted to start looking after dogs full time.... Now I have registered as self employed and I enjoy the company of many dogs everyday!

    She's a great dogsitter. She kept us updated with pictures and messages. Our dog has a special diet but she made sure she's fed properly. 5 star service.

    Buddy had a great time. He was excited going to Emma's each morning and was really tired each evening after his fun day there. Thanks Emma

    Muffin had lovely time - he's a bit old and doesn't do much, but was well looked after and relaxed when we picked him up after his week of pottering about!!
