We now have an established team of Nina’s Nannies for Pets was formed in 1998, our business has seen rapid growth. So much so, that we are now offering our live in pet care service throughout the majority of the South of the England. “>pet and dog sitters in the Cambridgeshire, London, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Bristol, West Sussex area and beyond.

We are always keen to welcome fresh faces to our team of self employed, live in pet sitters, especially from the above areas. We are particular interested in recruiting from the Surry area. This type of work is ideally suited to retired people/couples, who have experience of caring for animals, but no longer want the responsibility and expense of owning a pet.

I am often asked what makes a good pet sitter and my answer is often unexpected!  Of course people need to have the relevant experience and those people on our books come from all walks of life, including retired police officers and those from the caring and nursing profession. Each pet sitter shares one important thing in common and that is to keep a level head at all times and to deal with any emergency when they arise.

Pet sitting is most certainly not for the feint hearted and for those people who feel that this type of work is a good excuse to enjoy mini holidays throughout the year, should think again!

A typical service includes, the upkeep of pet’s customary diet and exercise routine, administration of any medications, monitoring health and arranging for medical treatment in case of an emergency.  Managing incontinent cats/dogs and of course clearing up after puppies.  You must also be ready to endure cold winter nights when the client’s heating fails, separating feuding dogs at meal times and all manner of unexpected events, that can occur during the course of your duties.

I should stress however, that there are also many pleasures to be had, such as visiting new areas of the country, making new friends on two legs and four!  Delighting when the shyest of cats take up residence on your knee, when the client has assured you that they will only appear for their meal times and enjoying the company of pets, without the responsibility and cost of owning your own.
