Founder | Dog Walker | Pet Carer
Greatly inspired by the stories of James Herriot, British veterinary surgeon and writer, I spent much of my childhood knee-deep in mud, not only looking after our horses, cats and guinea pigs, but running a makeshift shelter for local wildlife. Back then I dreamed of becoming a vet.
In recent years I have been volunteering and working as a dog walker and pet sitter, but it was a week spent at Jacobs Ridge Animal Sanctuary in 2019 that ultimately inspired me to leave the corporate world behind and follow my dreams.
Caring and compassionate by nature, my love and respect for animals has been the driving force behind launching a family-run service with my son, Christian. We’re passionate about delivering personal yet professional care for pets whilst offering their owners peace of mind.
I very much look forward to meeting you and your pet and finding the perfect solution to meet your pet care needs.
Marketing | Dog Walker | Pet Carer
Working part-time as a music lecturer, producer and marketeer, there is nothing I love more than leaving my laptop behind and getting out and about on brisk coastal dog walks. As a child I longed to have a dog, but both my parents had busy working lives and professional dog walkers hadn’t yet been invented!
Nevertheless, I never gave up asking and Mum and I used to volunteer for the amazing Cinnamon Trust, walking the beautiful Collette for her elderly owners.
Growing up I did my my share of looking after the cats, rabbits and gerbils (who I named after my 3 favourite music tutors) and more recently I have been dog walking and sitting for two of Southbourne’s finest Furry Little Rascals. Very much looking forward to growing the “family”!
