About Timothy

Originally from Roscommon I grew up on a farm with many different animals, such as cats, dogs, cows, sheep, pigs, horses, geese, hens and goats, so I feel like I have a good connection to animals of all shapes and sizes. We had two dogs on the farm that we trained to work with sheep and cattle. With this work I got familiar with training dogs to work best with animals and to control them in many situations and environments.

My uncle is a vet so I've learnt a lot from him over the years about animal behaviour and care, and about their health needs and how to handle and care for them best.

I trained in agricultural science in school and later went to agricultural college in Mountbellew, county Galway, where I received an NCA in Agriculture. In the course we covered the nutritional needs of many animals and their handling and maintenance on a farm.

I'm trained as a chef, so would understand a lot about food and nutrition, and what's good for our bodies, and what not to eat. This experience gives me a greater awareness of a balanced diet and our food needs.

You can learn a lot from animals, and there love shows no boundaries, so it's important that you take care of them individually and with patience.

We were so happy to have Timothy mind our puppy, Ferdia today while we went off and got married! He was brilliant. Reliable, kind, experienced, gentle and an all-round lovely dude. We'll definitely be contacting him again and would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thank you, Timothy, we're delighted to have made contact with you.

Big thanks to Tim for taking care of our two cats while we were away. They were very relaxed and happy when we got back and he sent us updates letting us know all was going well while we were away. thanks Tim :)
