About Heather

I have been brought up with many different pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, ferrets, mice and even a snake.
Since starting my family 24 years ago we have always had animals. We have always had Labradors, cats, kittens, rabbits, guinea pigs,hamsters, and also a budgie.
I have been dog walking for 30 years now and pet sitting in the pets home or mine for 23 yers now. we currently have a young playful,bouncy, and very friendly Labrador, a young cat who is very well behaved, playful and friendly as well as a very old cat who spents a lot of time either sleeping,eating or out and about and two adorable rabbits.
I have a current dog boarding licence from Braintree council, am pet first aid trained and have my own insurance for pets that I board, walk, visit and have at mine for day care. I am also on pawshake pet sitting website.
I love animals and spent almost my whole time with my family and animals. We are often out on walks(all weathers)with my Labrador and often other dogs too.
My main job is pet sitting and dog walking and its a job I love. Any pet that is looked after by me is given lots of fuss and attention and is made to feel as part of the family.
Please note that times for drop off and collection can varies to what is written on my profile depending on what availability I have and also depending on what other pets I have booked in and times they are going etc as well as times needing to fit around my family and personal life. Unfortunately I had to put in times which isn’t helpful for me but I do try my best to be as flexible as I can possibly be so I will also ask what time to and from you want your pet to come as that’s most helpful for me to know regarding other bookings and if I can help.
If you need any more info or have any questions please feel free to ask. Many thanks. Look forward to hearing from you. Kindest regards Heather

    I was nervous about leaving my two dogs with someone new, but Heather quickly put me at ease at the meet and greet, Tia and Bobbi were very well looked after and cared for by Heather, the photos and regular updates were great seeing the dogs happy and enjoying time with Olly. We will definitely book with Heather again

    Heather was fantastic with our boy Ozzie! We got plenty of photos and messages to keep us up to date with what he was doing on his holiday. It certainly put our mind at ease that he was having such a good time. Ozzie also loved spending time with olly, heathers lovely Labrador. We will not hesitate in using heather again. Thank you very much!!
