Anne and Kim hail from Southampton and are just two of our Hampshire dog and pet sitting team. Kim has a security background and has previously worked in the pet sitting industry, so has a wealth of experience caring for domestic pets.
Anne is Hampshire born and is affectionately known as another ‘cat lady’, although she is happy to care for one small dog. Although she enjoys a regular client base throughout the year, she is always happy to take on new clients. She oftens ventures across the border to Dorset and since a few of her clients have now relocated, she often leaves her country life in Hampshire, for the bright lights of London! For Anne it really is a PAWfect life.
Sadly recent dog deaths in The New Forest, purportedly attributed to the dreaded Alabama Rot, has seen the Dog Sitters to be extremely vigilant. Information concerning this awful disease does seem at times confusing and it appears that environmental triggers have not been ruled out. There has been over twelve confirmed cases in The New Forest so it is vital that clients are clear in the areas considered to be safe for dog walking.
The New Forest became a National Park in 2005 in recognition of its outstanding beauty and there is no shortage of beautiful walks to enjoy. It has always been a great favorite of our sitters and there are dog friendly pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. Perfect, following a long trek in the warm summer months.
Dog sitters are extremely respectful of wildlife, hence dogs are kept under control at all times. Poo bags are always an essential item in our dog walkers kit and they are always careful to treat the forest with care, which means cleaning up following picnics.
Although Sitters are permitted a three hour leisure break, they will often spend that time with the dogs in their charge, extending their dog walking time. There is nothing as pleasing as the wag of a dogs tail which is why we LOVE to care.
