About Gemma

Hello, I'm Gemma and I absolutely love dogs!

I've been offering my services as a dog sitter and walker for over 2 years and it has been the most rewarding experience. I've learnt so much about dogs - different breeds, different behaviours, different feeding and training ideas - and I'm still learning new things every day. Call it a borderline obsession, but I don't see myself getting bored of the wonderful world of doggo's any time soon!

I've worked with many different types of dogs: very young puppies to older dogs, tiny teacup dogs to big bouncy dogs, naughty dogs, cuddly dogs, shy dogs... I love them all and always enjoy getting to know a new dog.

I have an awesome little dog of my own who I adopted in November 2017. She is super friendly and loves playing with other dogs and humans! Please check out the owner part of my profile to read more about her.

I work at the Royal Masonic school and live in within the school grounds. We have literally acres of open space for doggies to run around!

My schedule changes weekly as I work shifts so please message to ask if I am available.

I'm very happy to do a meet-and-greet (free of charge) before confirming any bookings.

Myself and Mini look forward to having new furry friends join us on our walkies! (And snuggles on the sofa, of course...)

    Hi there It all went really well. Gemma was very switched onto Jack Russell’s and their behaviour which made it all a happy experience for Ronnie and Reggie and me. They got along very well with her own dog so everything was a huge success and have spoken to Gemma with a view to other day care in the future which she is happy to accommodate when and if she can.

    Thanks Chris, it was so lovely to have your boys over. Looking forward to having them again, as is Mini!

    I would highly recommend Gemma as a dog sitter, Ziggy our 5 yr old whippet had a great day with her going on walks in the surrounding area. We got regular updates on her having fun on walks and Gemma very kindly offered to have her for a bit longer if we where running later.

    Thanks for the review Matt, much appreciated. As mentioned Ziggy is welcome back any time! Very sweet doggy indeed.

    Gemma was perfect. Communicated well with us, before our visit to arrange meeting up and during pip’s stay. Pip seemed very content. Thank you so much.
