About Emma

Drop off and pick up times are flexible. Please note: I tend to offer one off daycare visits and holidays. I am sadly not always available to commit to a regular weekly slot.

Having had the privilege of growing up in the countryside with access to the great outdoors my parents always encouraged an active lifestyle and I was lucky enough to enjoy this with a 4 legged companion - a lovely cocker spaniel named Willow.
I have always had an interest in all animals and have had experience with small pets - hamsters, rabbits and guinea pigs as well as both cats and dogs.
A family member is an employee at a small animal sanctuary and owns 2 Staffordshire Bull Terriers herself. Over the years I have gained much valuable experience and knowledge from visits to the shelter and my general curiosity in asking questions with regards to training and care for dogs in particular.
I took a gap year before attending University in which I took a job as a cleaner. This also involved other duties such as animal care and I would regularly walk several clients dogs and feed animals when clients were away. This has also extended to mucking out horses.

I now live in a detached property which is a perfect little home for furry critters to visit. I've been doing dogsitting, daycare and walks, as well as housesitting for just over 2 years now and love every moment of it.
This year I hope to take a dog grooming course, first aid, and extend my sitter services.

We have a friendly cat named Casio who normally gets separated from any visitors to keep her safe and happy, and we have recently re-homed a friendly Cocker Spaniel called Penny. She's already having lots of fun with visitors!

Please do get in touch to discuss any requirements further. Many thanks :)

    I booked Emma for dog walking only but she did a wonderful job, carefully walking Inca who currently has a cruciate problem. She lifted her in and out of the car and made sure Inca didn't overdo things. Emma was also very punctual and responded to messages very swiftly and an absolute angel of mercy at a time of crisis! I wouldn't hesitate to use her again.Thank you DogBuddy.

    Emma has been so lovely with great communication before and during Meg’s stay. She had a lovely day with her - it was really nice to receive a video and photos to see what she had been up to while I was away. Thank you so much!
