PETS AND THE CITY is a family run pet sitting and dog walking business based in West Dulwich, South London.
I am an animal lover with over 30 years experience of owning and caring for both dogs and cats. I currently have one of each: my Maltese cross puppy Harry, and Edward my 12 year old rescue cat from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
I grew up on a farm in Devon. We had numerous domestic cats, and Jack Russells, Collies and Labradors, as well as sheep and goats, and the odd horse. I've been surrounded by wonderful creatures all my life.
A few years ago I was asked to do some dog and cat sitting for some family friends in France while they were on holiday. I was working crazy hours as a project manager in advertising and needed a break. It was a working holiday that didn't feel like work. I just loved it! This turned into a regular thing and extended to some of their friends. After a while I knew I wanted to do this full time and became a professional dog walker and pet sitter.
I have experience of walking and pet sitting dogs of all sizes from Jack Russells and Dachshunds, to Labradors and a Pyrenean mountain cross.
I also have experience of caring for cats of all temperaments and breeds.
Please be assured your pets are in good hands and will have everything they need while you're not around. Their wellbeing is our priority.
Looking forward to meeting you and your pets very soon.
