The Pet Sitter

Upon leaving school I went straight to an Animal Care College where I studied for 3 years and gained a Higher National Diploma in Animal Care.  After my graduation I had the opportunity to work with a dog walking company, this is where I gained my 5 years experience with a variety of different breeds.  As I thoroughly enjoyed working with animals I offered a pet sitting service first and have recently offered dog walking.  Below is a list of the main areas covered by each year.
