Live – in Pet Sitters required to join our expanding Pet Sitting team.

Are you an animal lover and looking to work during retirement? Have you ever wanted to work with animals? Are you a non smoker with your own transport?    If you answered yes to all of those questions, we would love to hear from you.

Nina’s Nannies for Pets

Nina’s Nannies for Pets was established in 1998 to provide a complete pet care service, which is tailored to suit our clients requirements.  It is therefore important that new recruits are happy to go that extra mile for our clients and fit into our family team of Pet Sitters.

2015, saw us introduce Skype calls to allow  clients to look in on their pets while their were away. This and regular updates, are very much appreciated, hence our repeat bookings and constant recommendations.


For this reason our ‘personal service’ must be maintained.  All applicants therefore, must be non smokers, preferably with their own transport, have at least fifteen years experience of caring for domestic pets, be active, in order to maintain dogs exercise regimes and have good communication skills.

You should be able to cope in an emergency, should a pet require veterinary treatment while their owners are away, or deal with household emergencies when and if they arise.

This type of work is ideally suited to retired people/couples who enjoy the pleasure of a pet, without the expense or responsibility and it does not take long for a new pet sitter to build a good client base, which will see you return to the same households throughout the year and when required.  We also offer good rates of pay for the right people.

Good Rates Of Pay

There are good rates of pay for the right people/couples and don’t forget the additional savings you will make on utility bills!

You are also reimbursed for all mileage costs, the preliminary visit and when you start and end the assignment and any extra expenses incurred while clients are away.

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.


We would love to hear from newly retired people, that are interested in becoming a live in pet sitter, so please do not hesitate to call Nina telephone 01525 220732 or email
