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 working part-time evenings occasionally and 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.

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

Dog Walking
Pascale, 2019-08-12

Josie is my new favorite person! I'm no longer permitted to bring my dog to work so I was desperate to find someone reliable to come to my house and walk my dog during the day. Jack, my dog, appears to really like her. Josie has been super reliable - this is the third week since I hired her. She has showed up even when there was a horrendous storm outside! I highly recommend her!

House Sitting
Jo, 2019-08-05

Just 3 words to describe Josie. Awesome Awesome Awesome. I arrived home after 4 days away and found my dogs very happy, relaxed and Josie had left my house in a loverly, clean and tidy state. Josie sent me regular updates and photos of my dogs while I was away and I could see how relaxed and happy they were which made my holiday so much better as I knew they were in great hands. I found Josie to be a mature, professional and reliable lady. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a pet sitter and I have already rebooked her to mind the dogs again next month.
