About Lou

I love all animals big and small, I am an experienced dog foster carer and will care for your pet like it’s my own :) My motivation for pet sitting is simply because I adore them. I know from having my own pets just how important it is to know they are cared for and loved when you’re away.

I am an experienced dog owner and foster carer for a local rescue group. I have experience with dogs of all breeds and sizes. I have training in and experience with pets with behavioural issues and anxiety and I am happy to work on training your fur friend if you require. I have experience giving medication to dogs, with my own dog requiring daily epilepsy medication.

I have owned and cared for cats, dogs, small pets including rabbits, mice, and fish. I am a trustworthy, tidy and caring professional in my 30s who would love to look after your fur, feather or reptile friends.

If you are away on holiday I am also available to water your plants or tend to any other duties you require. I do work a 9-5 Monday - Friday job, so assignments need to fit it with that.

Extremely happy to chat on Skype, call you or meet to talk about a possible Pawshake assignment to ensure you feel happy and confident to use my services.

I have cared for a variety of animals including but not exclusively being dog foster carers for a local rescue group.

I have dreams of owning my own hobby farm with animals aplenty so there is no animal I wouldn't want to look after.

Animals too are so much more than just pets, they are family who fills our hearts with love. Trusting me with your pet is a responsibility I do not take lightly. If you would like, I can give you regular updates on how your pets are going (including some cute photos!).

I can’t wait to care for your pets and look after your home!

Lou was wonderful. She took great care of our pets, and sent us updates. Lou did a great job with Henri our 15 year old diabetic Burmese cat who needs insulin injections twice a day. We came home to very happy feathers and furries. Would highly recommended.

Lou is genuine and lovely. I felt so relieved to find someone who would provide such good care for our puppy, cats - and fish! She kept me informed and I know the animals were in good hands. Thank you Lou!
