About Sophia

Hi my name is Sophia and I am an ex vet nurse that loves animals. Sadly I had to leave vet nursing as I abruptly found myself as the sole breadwinner for my family, but fortunately I had graphic design as a skill to fall back on.

I mostly work from home which allows me certain flexibility to get out and exercise.

Even when it's raining or storming, I still try to get out of the house and into the open air as that is where I am happiest.

At home I have 3 children, 2 lovely rescue cats, and a Staffy x Frenchie puppy.

Growing up, I was an avid horse rider, and my family always had an array of animals.

My kids may join me on dog walks where appropriate - they are very well trained! But I would always respect your dogs preferences in this regards, and I know some doggos simply don't care for the high energy that comes with children.

I am not a dog trainer (yet) but I will be training my own dog with the assistance of my brother who is a K9 police dog trainer so please discuss your dogs training with me and I should be able to provide consistency and reinforcement.

Small or large, I love all creatures and I'm very invested in their happiness.

My services:

- Home visits/pet sitting: Generally I can do home visits early morning and evening but it does depend on how far away you are, so please feel free to ask.

A home visit for any animal is generally enough time to feed and clean litter boxes etc. Grooming or play time is extra.

- Dog walking: Dog walks are 30 minutes at this stage. Please send me a message so we can see if my schedule works for you and your dog.

- Doggy daycare: I have a spacious and secure backyard and my own dog is very social. I would be happy to look after your dog during the day

- Home visits: Happy to do home visits for any animals. Usually these bits are 15 minutes max.

We have a very old dog requiring extra attention and care which Sophia provided. We are very grateful for that additional effort and diligence Sophia managed for us in a very professional manner.
