About Janice

I have been fortunate and lucky enough to have had a dog by my side pretty much since my childhood days, well that is up until the past couple of years when my life took a unexpected change. I found myself widowed and also without a trusty doggy friend by my side. My old dog preceeded my husband by just a couple of months, both events rocked my world.

So, here I am, in a new town, where I have now decided I would like to become a dog sitter or dog walker for others who cannot always make the time required in their busy lives.

I am healthy and fit, I love walking and exercising. What better way than with a dog by my side.

I am comfortable with all types of dogs, of all shapes and size.

I am experienced with different types of dogs: healthy ones, boisterous ones; naughty ones; playful ones and old and frail dogs. I adore them all.

I am a good listener and will adhere to any rules, regulations and routines the dog owners may require of me.

I can administer injections as I had a diabetic dog for over 8 years.

I soon get to know their character traits and usually find that I can bond with them very quickly.

For the past 2 Christmas's I have spent a month looking after an aged Labrador and
Sprightly Labradoodle in their own home in Spain.

I moved to my new town 6 months ago and there are some lovely walks around here in woodlands, by canals and through parks.

I would relish the chance to start spending some quality time looking after dogs for their owners whilst away or at work.

I am a driver and willing to transport dogs to and from owners home.

    Janice is just wonderful - after meeting her I knew immediately that Charlie would be well cared for and in good hands. She has a truly lovely and caring nature and even though Charlie had an injured paw she didn't hesitate in agreeing to look after him. The photos and messages were also much appreciated. Charlie had a wonderful time, he was loved, well cared for and was totally spoilt. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

    Janice is amazing!! My lurcher Roxy absolutely adores her. She spent two weeks with Janice and has been utterly spoilt with walks and cuddles. She clearly loved spending time with Janice and every time I mention the name 'Janice', Roxy looks thrilled and full of excited anticipation! I'm delighted that I found Janice. She filled me with confidence from day one. She has experience with dogs, an intuitive understanding of what a dog needs, and a warmth and empathy which is genuine and reassuring. I would not hesitate in recommending Janice to any dog owner , she's just wonderful!
