About Natalie

Hello fellow pet lovers!

I'm a freelance journalist & printmaker based in Portobello, who also does the odd bit of tour guiding.

A bit about my background: I grew up on a farm in the village of Inistioge, county Kilkenny. We’ve always had millions of animals; 650 ewes and 10 rescue dogs, a one-eared rescue cat, rabbits, horses, goats and doves. My mother also runs a donkey sanctuary in tandem with the farm, but she loves them too much to say goodbye... So, now we also have about 20 middle-aged donkeys.

In Dublin, I'm a proud cat mammy. "Seven" is the beautiful grey rescue from my pictures and has her own Instagram account (seventherescuecat). As my own girl is quite skittish, I'm well used to handling cats with that type of temperament. I have experience with birds (cockatiel and budgie) and I'm also very experienced with dogs of any size and personality - be it timid, reactive, hyper, and so on.

I am very laid back in terms of my schedule and can work to whatever routine you have already set up with your pet. Feel free to message me with any questions and I'd love to chat!

The locations I service:

Anywhere that’s within a 10 minute cycle from Portobello. Generally, that ends up being parts of D6 and D6w (Rathmines, Harold's Cross and Ranelagh), Dublin 8 (but no further west than Rialto), Dublin 2 (though not as far as the Docklands) and a small part of Dublin 12 (the side of Crumlin that's near the Grand Canal).

The Services I provide:

1. Dog walking, which is a 30 minute walk.

2. Home visits, which is approx 30-40 minutes at the house in total. We have 10-15 minutes to first feed pet, change water and clean up litterbox and messes. We finish with a 25 minute dog walk & cuddles, or else 25 minutes of cat playing & cuddles.

3. Home care: watering plants, taking out bins, picking up packages. Please note that if there is a lot to do, you'll have to book a double slot.

4. Daily photo updates of your wee ones.

Natalie immediately connected with my two nervous greyhounds, who were very comfortable with her. She is a very friendly, reliable and conscientious walker who truly loves animals.
