About Olivia

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.

    Olivia was great with our dog, Jedi who can be quite shy and nervous with new people and dogs. We felt really comfortable leaving him with her for the day as she was very reassuring and kind. We got regular updates including photos and videos showing Jedi playing with her lovely dogs. We would definitely recommend her to others and hope she will have Jedi back again when we need him looked after! Thank you Olivia! ☺️

    Phenomenal service with Olivia. As she gave Archie the best care for his overnight stay. Not only did he just meet new friends, Olivia also helped with the training of Archie by helping him walk off lead. Would definitely recommend and if I would ever need care for Archie again, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Olivia.

    What can I say? Winston had the time of his life. He returned a very happy chappy. I can’t thank Olivia enough for looking after him. I feel he has been well and truly pampered. There is no better feeling than going away and knowing your dog is in good hands and being well looked after. I can’t recommend Olivia enough! 😊🐶
