About Veronica

If you live in the Preston area and would like help with daily dog walking or maybe want a quick break away and need someone to care for your pet, do let me know. I'd love to help! I walk dogs and look after pets in their owners’ homes. I have found this to be popular with clients as their animals are much more relaxed in familiar surroundings where their usual routine is followed.
I have worked with DogBuddy for three years now and enjoy it very much. It has allowed me to 'keep dogs in my life', which for me is very important because I cannot own a pet in my rented house. I am really happy with the assignments as I have been able to interact with lovely dogs and meet very kind owners! Before moving to Preston, I lived in Somerset for three years. There I had two regular assignments: walking a Bearded Collie and looking after a Shar-pei when his owners wanted to go out for the day. He suffers from separation anxiety and cannot be left at home alone. I also have experience with Staffies, Great Danes, West Highland Terriers, German Shepherds, Retrievers, Labradors, Springer Spaniels, Sighthounds and Bulldogs, amongst others.
Looking after pets requires dedication, patience, respect and a fun-loving attitude. I believe I am a great all-rounder when it comes to this. I am also trustworthy, reliable, prompt, love taking long walks and have my own car, so mobility is not a problem. Additionally, I obtained my DBS certificate in 2015.
I have hands on experience of caring for dogs from 14 years of owning Boxers in Venezuela, South America where I lived for 34 years and where I am a registered Boxer breeder. I also volunteered for several years at a rescue dog shelter. I am practiced at looking after medium-sized breeds on a daily basis: feeding, walking, basic grooming and first aid. I also have the patience and proficiency necessary when caring for sick and elderly dogs.

    Veronica was very patient and did a superb job of trying to convince my stubborn Bulldog to go for a walk on his first day home alone in a new house. I thoroughly recommend her!
