Passionate dog lover & Veterinary nurse

About Cathy

I've owned a vast variety of breeds throughout my life and considered them all as my fur children. I worked as a veterinary nurse in my youth so can administer medicine and deal with emergencies. I am now retired and want to help people by providing a home away from home for their dogs, allowing them to relax in the knowledge that their babies are being excellently cared for, lavished with love and cuddles, taken on beautiful park, forest & field walks and have a warm, cosy place to relax at the end of a busy day.
I take a maximum of two dogs at a time, depending on their personalities and social skills so I can focus all my attention on them.
I don't take dogs with a history of aggression but I'm happy to take puppies, seniors and dogs with special needs.
I have a beautiful garden, live close to the park and am an active person.
I'd love to be your "go to" dog sitter and take the weight off your shoulders for those last minute bookings or those long awaited holiday bookings!

    It’s such a pleasure. I love the little man. My flat always feels empty without him. Thanks for always letting me look after him. 🐕🐕🐕

    Cathy is a lovely, kind dog sitter who cared for our dog as if he were one of her own. She was great with sending photos and videos to keep us posted and settle any nerves we may have had leaving him with a new person.

    From the moment we met Cathy we knew our dogs were in safe hands - she was so kind, calm and reassuring, sending us updates and videos of Daisy and Archie who seemed to be having such a good time we wondered if they'd want to come home! Thanks, Cathy, we'll definitely be back!
