About Deirdre

I am a lifelong animal lover and have a FETAC Certificate in Animal Care. I have many years experience of animal handling from horses to dogs and cats, reptiles, birds, fish and everything in between. I am now in my 40s and have been working full time as a dog walker and pet sitter for six years. Previously I worked in IT. I have gained work experience in pet shops, doggy daycare and riding schools. I offer dog walking and pet sitting in Bray, Greystones and surrounding areas.

I have experience with large dogs and difficult dogs. I own a very rambunctious Newfoundland so am used to strong dogs! I can take dogs in my car for off lead walks or walk them in around their locality depending on their own needs. I do one-to-one walks for dogs who need personal attention. I can take up to three dogs, whether from the same family or well socialised dogs that can be introduced to each other. I do not take more than three in one walk.

Cats are my favourite of all and I have a natural affinity with them. I can care for your cats in your own home while you are away.

I also do home visits and can care for small mammals (rabbits, rats, gerbils etc) and exotics (reptiles, birds, fish) in your own home. I owned budgies my entire life so can care for parrot and finch types easily. I have some experience looking after hens also.

I have trusted returning clients and available references.

Thanks for looking!

I would recommend Deirdre for dog sitting or dog walking. Deirdre met with me and the dogs twice before taking on the job to make sure everything was OK and got to know the dogs. Deirdre is very professional and reliable. Thanks for your help Deirdre!

Deirdre was great - really helpful setting up the visits, and we really appreciated that she texted us after each visit to let us know how our cat was doing. We will be very happy to ask her to work with us again.
