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.
