About Chris

I am an animal lover, dogs especially. I had my own beloved dog until a few years ago and I miss him so much. I love walking, and walking with a dog is the best way, especially locally to build up a good relationship with the dog! I miss having an enthusiastic walking companion to encourage me to explore. I'm also not averse to a fireside cuddle or a dog brushing session if required!
I live in South Devon but am happy to travel to stay with your dog for a few days if you are going away.
I grew up with animals, as my family had nine cats, a horse, gerbils, a hamster and a rabbit. This was lovely but of course, I really wanted a dog!
Once I was an adult I did get my own gorgeous dog who was with me for fourteen years. I also had a cat and they were the best of friends.
Now that both of them have passed I would love to care for others as I have a lot of affection and care to give.
I am also a mother to two grown up daughters and have been working from home the last few years after giving up my job as a teacher for teenagers with behavioral problems, specializing in Literacy, Music and Craft. I loved teaching but it was very taxing hence the change of direction.
If you hire me your dog(s) will be loved, exercised and pampered!
Please note that if you are outside a 5 mile radius from Totnes I require a small payment towards petrol.
