If you live in South Somerset and need help with daily dog walking/sitting or maybe want a quick break away from home, do let me know. I'd love to help! I look after pets in their owners’ homes and have found this to be very popular. The animals are much more relaxed in familiar surroundings and when their routine is not broken.
I enjoy working with DogBuddy because it has allowed me to 'keep dogs in my life' even though, at the moment, I cannot own a pet as I live rented. I am really happy with the assignments as I have been able to interact with lovely dogs and meet very kind owners! At the moment, I look after a Shar-pei, who suffers from separation anxiety, when his owners want to go out for the day and I have a regular assignment walking a Bearded Collie. I have also looked after a Staffie, a Great Dane, a West Highland Terrier, German Shepherds, Retrievers and Springer Spaniels, amongst others.
Looking after pets requires dedication, patience, respect and a fun-loving attitude. I believe I am a great all-rounder when it comes to this. I am also trustworthy, reliable, prompt, love taking long walks and have my own car, so mobility is not a problem. Additionally, I obtained my DBS certificate in 2015.
Regarding my background, dogs have always been a part of my life. I have hands on experience of caring for dogs from 14 years of owning Boxers in Venezuela, South America where I lived for 34 years and where I am a registered Boxer breeder. I am practiced at looking after medium-sized breeds on a daily basis: feeding, walking, basic grooming and first aid. I also have experience working with rescue dogs that includes socialising activities and administering basic medicines. Looking after eight boisterous puppies was one of the most rewarding experiences in my life! At the other end of the spectrum, I have the patience and proficiency necessary when caring for sick and elderly dogs.
