About Carmen

I've been an animal lover my whole life and treat them as part of the family. I have had dogs all of my life from Dobermans to Daschunds and through this, I have become an experienced handler. I currently have a miniature dachshund, Echo, who loves nothing more than having other dogs around to play with.

I have a large kitchen perfect for your dog to play in and a completely secured walled garden. I also have two dog-friendly cats, so If you would like your dog socialising with cats either as a trial before you get one or just to social your beloved pooch with cats, this is a great environment to do it. If your dog hates cats, as some do, we could arrange a trial because they sometimes surprise you and behave really well in a cat's environment - I've looked after cat haters that have been absolutely fine when here. Plus the cats do sleep most of the day!

Recently I have quite a lot of experience looking after puppies, which has been lovely and great fun. I understand and appreciate from having my own puppy what it's like to need to drop your puppy off for the day or evening at last minute with someone you trust and feel comfortable with.

I'm certainly not ageist though, so if you need to drop off your older pooch, that needs that extra bit of attention or medication, I would be more than happy to help with that.

I'm very happy to meet up beforehand and get to know your dog and see if he/she feels comfortable enough with me, to be looked after for the day or overnight.

I'm also happy to accept last minute emergency drop off's if an emergency should arise and you need a sitter last minute.

Hope to see you and your beloved pooch soon,

    Carmen is an excellent dog sitter! She looked after our Maltese, Jac-Jac, for 3 nights and cared for him just as we would. She was very accommodating regarding drop off and pickup time, which ultimately had to change last minute due to travel delays. I was able to meet her ahead of booking and I could tell Jac would be in good hands. She has a great space with a fenced outdoor area perfect for a dog. He resident pets (Echo the dachshund and 2 cats) provided great company for Jac, too! She was really great about keeping us posted on Jac's status while we were away, sending frequent texts and pictures and updating us on his feeding schedule, play time and walks. We will definitely ask Carmen for her service again in the future; you won't find this level of care that often so if peace of mind is important to you when you're away, I would strongly recommend reaching out to Carmen as an option.
