Hello animal lovers out there! My name is Olivia and I am the OFFICIAL crazy animal lady!
I have Degu's, Ferrets, Parrots and three dogs 🐾 with room for more, always.
I truly enjoy caring for all pets and wild animals in any way that I can, I love the outdoors and exercise being a part of my daily work really suits me.
I grew up surrounded by dogs, mainly Staffies, birds, reptiles, cats and more and have had such a wide range of experiences in so many different settings that make me perfect for this 'job' including...
4+ years as a Volunteer dog walker/socialiser and cat cuddler for The Ark in Ashbourne, Jerry Green Dog Rescue (Yorkshire and Nottingham sites) and at Santosha Boarding Kennels & Cattery in Stoke.
3+ years as a Self-employed Dog Walker and Pet Sitter where I have learned to recognise behaviour in dogs to help prevent potentially harmful situations including aggressive dogs and other dangers. Additionally, I've helped dogs to overcome their fears of people and others who were unable to socialise with other dogs are now free and safe to be off lead!
One intense month as a Dog Welfare Assistant at Jerry Green Dog Rescue (unfortunately my car got written off and I could no longer travel there so had to leave).
One week as a Volunteer at Jacobs Ridge/Pig Village in Spain, helping care for dogs, cats, pigs, horses and donkeys!
This is not a job for me it is my life. Which means most of the time I give more than the time you're paying me for but that's my choice and I do not charge more for this.
