About Olivia

Hello fellow animal lovers out there! My name is Olivia and here is a bit about me...

I decided to become a dog walker and animal carer because I want to wake up every day with a smile on my face. I want to LOVE what I do!
Almost to the end of my Degree in Nursing I realised that I don't love it, it has always been the care and welfare of animals. ALL animals! Why it took me so long to realise this I have no idea haha but since then I dedicated all of my time as a Volunteer for every Animal Rescue Centre that I could - Santosha Kennels, The Ark, Jerry Green Dog Rescue and even Jacob's Ridge in Spain! From there I kind of fell into dog walking and it's been the only thing I've truly enjoyed and felt passionate about since!


Why should you choose me?

I have years of personal, voluntary and professional experience caring for a variety of animals including many dogs at rescue centres.

I'm a certified animal First Aider with PDSA

I go the extra mile with every animal, I want them to be engaged, exercised, interacted and played with and of course given lots of cuddles!

Included in every visit/walk are - water bowl top ups, any messes cleaned/picked up, feeding if required, cleaning off those mucky paws, pictures/videos and a text when we've finished and most importantly a happy, well exercised dog ready for you to come home! I have also been known to pick up your mail and switch the slow cooker on for you haha!

    We've been using Olivia for a couple of months now 1-2x a week. She is always punctual and has been flexible with our last minute changes in plans as far as she can be. She always asks in advance to see that we are happy with treats she wants to give our pup, if she is able to put him in her car or bring another dog to join her walk with ours - all of which have never bothered us, but I'm sure if we ever did have any specific requests she would be happy to oblige. Olivia also helps to keep up our dogs training e.g. rewards for not barking. She's great!

    Great with my puppy and kept me updated and sent pics during the walk. Took the booking at short notice giving me a much needed break! Will be using again. Would absolutely recommend. Thank you!!

    Olivia is really friendly and immediately built up a rapport with my stranger cautious puppy. We have already booked her for more doggy walking days this month.
