Pet care experience

I am Fully Licenced by my local council & independently Insured A little bit about me.... I have had at least 1 dog in my life my whole life. when I was about 10 I was trusted to walk my and my neighbour's dog on my own, until about 18months ago I had 3 dogs but unfortunately I lost my old black lab to cancer which has left me with my 2 boys Chester (6) and Douglas (5) who are mini wire hared dachshunds they go everywhere with me that allow dogs they even travelled to Spain for my sons wedding and are in his wedding photos. my house is totally doe friendly and so is my large car I am a DOG person I work from home preserving flowers and setting them in resin so I am either home or out waking my boys looking for things to press. my garden Is completely dog escape proof (as Bertie my late Lab was quite an escape artist) it is fenced on the outside with a 12' hedge on the inside which means nobody can look into my garden. I am so confident about this that Chester and Douglas have their own doggie door/tunnel that goes through the dining room wall so they have access to the garden whenever they need it although the back door onto my covered patio is nearly always open. I have a quite large house ( I had 4 children that are all grown) so there is plenty of room for playing, zoomies or just chilling . . . my workroom has 4 dog beds in it alone there are 2 in the kitchen a large crate that my boys sleep in at night and the 2 two seater and 1 three seater sofas are dog friendly areas too

Thank you again, Babs, for giving Maisie a wonderful sleep-over. She seemed delighted to see you again and loved having other dogs to play with. Thank you for asking me to clarify the booking times, which I'd mixed up. Also for the lovely photos showing Maisie enjoying cuddles.🥰

A typical day

in a typical day after I've gotten up I feed my boys, then eat my breakfast, as soon as the spoon goes down in the bowl the boys rush to where their leads are kept and we go for our morning walk. on returning to the house I go upstairs into my workroom and the boys choose abed and sleep whilst I work. The boys will interrupt me for cuddles, play treats or to go out. I normally have lunch about 1pm and usually sit in my garden. In the afternoon if the weather is dog walkable we have another walk. the boys have their tea at approximately 5pm. in the evening we all cuddle up on the sofa at about 8pm Weather permitting we have a last walk before a treat and bedtime.
