About Irena

I have been a pet owner for over 40 years. I have also looked after other people's pets for many years.

I would be delighted to care for your fur-child!

Please note that due to other pets in the house, I do not home-board pets at this stage.

I will look after your pet/s in your own home either as a housesitter or as a visitor. If you are away for more than 2 days, I prefer to housesit, so your pets are not left unattended for long periods. They will still get two walks a day and lots of TLC.

Please note that my miniumum housesitting time is 2 nights. This is to minimise the packing/unpacking effort required and also I really do want to get to know your pets by spending longer time with them :)

I am happy to provide training for both you and your pet, as well as advice for proper pet nutrition and how to manage a number of health issues. I am happy to prepare special meals for your pets.

I have a lot of experience looking after elderly, disabled and injured animals.

You do not need to have your pet vaccinated for me to look after them. I do ask that they have up-to-date tick treatment of some kind.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your fur kids!

P.S. As of 1 June 2019, I no longer look after Staffies, Bull Mastiffs, Pit-bulls or cross-breeds of the above. Due to shoulder injury, I am not confident I could maintain sufficient control when walking these types of dogs in public. Thanks for understanding.

Irena was very professional and I would recommend her to anyone wishing someone to meticulously caring for your animals. She takes comprehensive notes so as to maintain your pets routine. Thank you Irena for caring for my dogs.

This was only a short break but when we returned home our dog had been well treated and the house was tidy.
