38, Ballet teacher and professional petsitter

Experienced and reliable petsitter Shelley plus well socialized pooch pal Poppet looking after fur kids across the world!
I'm a non-smoking South African lady doing a master's postgraduate year in the UK. I love to travel and experience new places whenever I get the opportunity. My trusty stead 5 year old Dachshund-cross has been accompanying me on petsitting jobs since puppyhood and makes for a superb playmate for both dogs and cats alike!
I have over 20 years of caring experience - looking after a variety of beloved pets, precious children and homes of all kinds, all over the world. I am well traveled and have had a flourishing career in hospitality as well as being a Royal Academy of Dance qualified children's ballet teacher.
I have training in pet first aid and Tellington T-touch therapy for animals, plus grooming experience and training in pet nutrition. I promise to care for your pets and property as if they were my own, sending photo updates as necessary and tending to any and all garden or household chores required. I am very neat and tidy, as is Poppet! We are completely respectful and considerate when staying in client's homes and fitting in with the lifestyles of your pets. Their feeding schedules and daily routines will be adhered to, they can enjoy leisurely walks, with plenty of pat-and-playtime and will be smothered in love!
I am willing to travel across the UK, can be flexible with lengths of stay, am often available at short notice and hold a current and valid driver's license.
Please do call on myself and my Poppet to ensure peace of mind that your house and/or pets are in the best possible hands/paws while you are away!
