About Sophie

Hey I'm Soph! I am from the UK and have been brought up with dogs ever since I was born, so I am used to them being part of the family.

I would love to be able to care for your pets, take them for walks, feed them and generally help you out while you're away. I work full-time during the week, but I am available on weekends and in the evenings for house sits and dog walks.

One of our family dogs in the UK has to have medication, so I am fully comfortable around that and understand that this is sometimes a requirement (I have done some sits through Pawshake that needed this previously also).

I am very passionate about caring for animals and learning about how they react to different situations and their behaviour. In the near future, I will be making my way towards starting my studies so I can eventually become a Guide Dog Mobility Instructor or Police Dog Handler to help the community. Pawshake for me is a good way to meet lots of different breeds of dog and find out more about them and also so I can get my doggie fix that I am so desperately craving (as I live in an apartment, I am unable to get a dog currently). I absolutely LOVE spending time with dogs in particular, but if you have any other animals that you need help with, that is ok also. Through Pawshake I have looked after dogs, cats, fish, hampsters and even ducks!

Look fur-ward to hearing from you soon! :)

Sophie was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond what we were hoping for while we were away. Thoroughly recommended and would re-book without reservation.

Thank you again.

Sophie was amazing to say the least. Her caring nature and love for animals is evident and she goes over and above what you’d expect from a pet sitter.

She sent a short update and photos daily providing us with the peace of mind that our home and pets were safe.

A very reliable and responsible young lady, we’ll most certainly be using her again the next time we plan a trip away!
