Care For Small Furries, Cats And Dogs
Faith's furry clients.
Hi, I'm Faith!
University of Edinburgh accredited pet sitter located in Dublin 12.
My home has ample space for your furry one. I have extensive experience bonding pets and have successfully bonded multiple pets who have been staying with me at the same time. I have six rooms suitable for pets, where they can relax in private if they wish. I have a fully fenced, medium sized back garden also, and a park nearby in addition to multiple long routes for walks.
For humans, I have ample free parking space for drop off and pick up of pets. If you need me to come to you, I have my own transportation and the option of multiple bus lines and the Luas to take me wherever you need me to go. I can house sit pets in any location in the Dublin metropolitan area.

1. Dog care
I have had the pleasure of having three canine companions in my life - Happy the Jack Russell, Snowy the Japanese Spitz and Pepper the Jack Russell. I have experience caring for pregnant dogs and puppies as well as older animals. Though I do not provide home boarding for larger dogs, I am comfortable walking them and have the strength necessary to do so.
2. Small furries care e.g. gerbils, hampsters, guinea pigs, rabbits
I am lucky to live with seven guinea pigs - three boys and four girls (who live separately!) I have dealt with guinea pig health issues and have the ability to notice illness in guinea pigs - an animal that is notorious for trying to hide sickness! I have cared for friends hamsters and gerbils also. Small furries require a special dedication and level of care which I know about first hand - they need a different level of care to any other pet and I am here to provide that for your fur baby.
3. Cats - in home care only
I have taken care of many cats throughout my pet sitting career and am the primary carer for three private clients who I have been working with for three years. I have experience caring for cats with personality disorders, anxiety, and blindness. I have also cared for elderly cats aged 15+ with special care requirements.
4. Farm animals e.g. sheep, goats, cows, chickens
I was raised part-time on a farm where I helped out first hand with large animals including feeding, cleaning and medicating cows, shearing, herding and nail clipping sheep, treating hair and skin issues in goats etc.
