I am a 30 year old British expat living in Bezuidenhout. I live with my wife and son, along with our toller Abe and cat Betty.
I began working with animals years ago after struggling to find help with our dog Max (who has sadly passed away) when he struggled to interact with other dogs. He was a rescue dog who had a difficult past but was fundamentally a very sweet and affectionate dog. He taught me that some dogs just need patience and love before they are ready to really be confident. We had a similar but different situation with our Galgo Ben (who also sadly passed away), who was very nervous of men.
I have a lot of experience with "difficult" dogs and feel as though that has taught me a lot.
Our current pets could not be more different, however. Abe and Betty are both very calm and happy. Abe is a rescue but was fortunately born in a rescue shelter so has never had to live as a stray while Betty is actually the daughter of a cat who I look after through this app!
In the past I have offered home services but because we have recently had our first child I am unable to do so currently. However, I can offer other services such as walks (both one-to-one and in a small pack), day visits and more.
All the dogs and cats I look after are treated like our own. They're all family. Hopefully you will let me help with any problems you have!
Rob did a lovely job with our new puppy. He will be our regular sitter from now on.
Great response to a last minute booking :) Thank you Rob!
I have experience with dogs of different sizes, temprements and breeds. I have cared for other dogs overnight and currently help out walking a dog in Benoordenhout. Although I have no formal qualifications, I have experience and can provide testimonies if wanted.
