Devon is in a beautiful area of the country and Richard and Irina, who are based in Torquay, have been a wonderful asset to our dog sitting team. Originally located in Dorset, they moved to Torquay in 2017 and are now situated close to the sprawling beaches and lovely countryside. They joined our dog sitting team in 2012 and although they are busy throughout the year with their regular clients, they are always happy to accommodate new clients – time permitting.
We are also pleased to welcome Piers and Olga to our team, who are also eager to cross the surrounding counties to visit new areas. Both are keen pet lovers and like Richard, Irina and the rest of our Devon pet sitters, are always exceeding expectations. Whether it is buying a small shop for your return, or keeping plants watered during the summer, nothing is too much trouble.
Like all of our pet sitting team, Richard and Irina are able to deal with all manner of pets, great and small and cope with any emergency. Be it a burst pipe in the winter months, or a leaky garden pond, they are fazed by nothing and we regularly receive wonderful testimonials about the level of care they provide. One client did stress that our sitters are better vetted and have more experience, than their child’s nanny! A compliment indeed!
Devon’s medieval towns and moorland national parks, make dog walking an absolute delight, not to mention the tiny pebbled coves and dog-friendly beaches. Richard will often hike the rugged coastal paths, but only with younger dogs who enjoy extra exercise. With elderly or infirmed dogs, while it is important to maintain their regular walking routines, a comfortable bed (or lap), is often a little more tempting when they reach their senior years.
