About Josie

Hi! I'm 20 years old, I am very mature and reliable! I believe these attributes are important when caring and looking after any Animal.

In 2018 I completed my qualification in Animal Management level 4. And now I am studying level 5 Veterinary Nursing. So my experience and knowledge is always growing.

Crazy animal lover, very responsible and I understand that leaving your furry friends with a stranger is not an easy choice, so am happy to meet beforehand so I can introduce myself to both you and your companion! I am confident with all dog breeds and behavioural types and have had experience working with a variety of breeds.

As well as being able to administer medications I am also able to provide first-aid for your animal if it is ever needed. I have previously owned and cared for dogs, cats, guinea pigs, frogs, rabbits and rodents, as well as farm animals, so I have relevant experience with each of these species, and more, and have knowledge of their care requirements. I have also had 5+ years of volunteering experience in animal-related industries.

I am at course during the days, so I will need to work with you to come up with any agreements for any house visits and house sitting/walking, but I am still able and happy to do either daily.

***Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays I am now working from 7.30am so please be aware I won't be with your pets for the whole day on these days ***

Unfortunately, as I am studying and don't own my home, I am unable to have any pets of my own. Because of this, you can be assured that your pet would get all the absolute most love and attention they deserve when I am around!

I am a very neat and tidy person and understand the importance of privacy, therefore if you are needing a house sitter, You can be assured that I will always treat your home and property with respect and keep it tidy and clean.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or enquiries, looking forward to hearing from you!

** Happy to travel further distances provided if times suit my schedule at that time and for an extra cost (for fuel) agreed with you

House Sitting
Dominique, 2019-10-01

Any worries I had when Josie first dog and house sat vanished within the first day of being away! Her correspondence was great and we loved getting pics of the dogs and hearing what they had been up to. When we got home the house was spotless and most importantly the dogs were happy! I would not hesitate to recommend Josie or use her services again. She is trust worthy and has a good knowledge of dogs and pets :)

House Sitting
Jo, 2019-09-29

Once again Josie was amazing and took such great care of my dogs. When I got home they rushed to me for a cuddle but then went back to Josie for a cuddle which told me they are both very happy and comfortable in Josies company. She had left my house in a very clean and tidy state. Josie is mature, reliable and very competent. I received regular phots and updates on how my dogs were doing which made me so much more at ease and able to enjoy my time away. I have no hesitation at recommending Josie to anyone that needs their fur babies looked after.
