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.

    Couldn't ask for a more attentive dog buddy. Janice really has your pets interests at heart. Janice sent me texts to tell me how Kira was doing which made us realise we had done the right thing by booking a dog buddy. Janice is a wonderfully warm lady, easy to communicate with, reliable and totally trustworthy...couldn't recommend her highly enough ❤️

    Janice gave us daily photos and texts which we really appreciated as this was the first time we had left Missie n Ralph. Even came home to clean, bathed dogs!🐶❤️🐶

    Janice is a lovely and very easy person to communicate with. I will have no hesitation in using Janice again, very trustworthy and very reliable, especially in our situation. The dogs are very much given a good run around and they seem very sleepy for the rest of the day. I can safely assume the boys are looking forward to their next walk! Thanks Janice.

    Thank you so much Yen, it's been a real pleasure getting to know Arlo and Alfie, you and Bek too. They are lovely boys, a credit to you both and I look forward to more walks and fun with them both. I can't believe how well they trusted me in such a short space of time! Such lovely, fun to be with doggies.I must say a huge thank you for the positive review!
