About Hannah

Hi there. My name is Hannah and I just adore animals. I love all creatures great and small, from budgies to clydesdales and love to care for them while their owners are away, ensuring that they don't miss you too much and that you can holiday with your mind at ease.

I am a qualified vet nurse with 20 years experience, making me ideal for animals on any medication or requiring special care. I specialise in geriatric care and just love golden oldies though am also very happy to take your frisky young dog for a run too.

I am 38 years old, extremely reliable, clean and very friendly and easy to deal with. I am used to caring for animals with high needs and so am more than happy to stick to any special routine your pet requires (my 16 year old arthritic dog had a pram at the end of her life, was on 6 different types of medication and had to be lifted up and downstairs among other things!).

I am respectful of training, exercise and feeding routines as I know how much work these take to put in place and always do my best to keep your pets' routine as close to normal as possible.

Included in my pet sitting services:

  • Feeding and watering
  • Administration of any medication/bandage changes etc
  • Lots of cuddles!
  • Exercise as requested by you - I'm very up for runs or long walks
  • Overnight stays
  • Watering of plants, receiving packages, clearing of mail etc

  • Cleaning up after your pet eg litter trays
  • For daycare or boarding, my partner and I are both responsible adult dog lovers and one of us will always be at home with your dog. I work 5 minutes down the road from our home in the local vet so we also have excellent access to emergency pet care. Our garden is fully fenced and secure, though we would never leave a dog outside unsupervised. We live at the foot of the Grampians, excellent for sporty young dogs and have gentle park walks nearby too for the dignified older pooch.

    I am happy to send multiple pictures/updates each day if this is what you like or just leave you to relax in peace!

    Please do get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, I look forward to meeting you and your pets very much!

    We are very pleased with how Hannah looked after our dogs. We came home to settled and happy dogs and were informed of how things were going during our short time away. Considering that one of our dogs was in his senior years and another had had a small operation just a week ago we felt relieved that they were in very good hands.

    Doggy Day Care
    Diane, 2020-07-14

    Hannah looked after my dog after a hard day of travelling. It was such a relief to be able to go out and not have to worry about my pup, who is very anxious away from us. Hannah was wonderful, great communication and I felt very very comfortable leaving her in capable hands. When I picked up my dog she was happy to see me, but not the ball of anxiety she normally would be. I will definitely use again whenever needed.
