About Martha

Hi there! I’m Martha, a 25 year old production coordinator currently working in a video production company with a huge passion for animals of all shapes and sizes. I work from home on Tuesdays and Fridays, and I’m currently living in a quiet area with my boyfriend and two housemates and working near Dublin City Centre, and I’m looking to fill some of my free time with your furry friends!

My Background:

I do not have any pets in my Dublin home, however my childhood best friend Bonnie the border collie, who is also epileptic, lives back home in Sligo with my family and she is truly what gets me through the day whenever I go home to see her. I have experience dealing with difficult and/or nervous animals, as Bonnie has gone through a lot and has dealt with high anxiety as well as trauma and epilepsy from before we took her in, and this has taught me a huge amount of compassion and caring for dogs who might be a bit more of a challenge to look after but who deserve the same, if not even more, of the love. 

I’m a huge animal lover, and have always had connections with animals of all kinds ever since I was a kid, something that made me want to go vegetarian a long time ago. I am patient, attentive, responsible and full of love for animals in all capacities, and would be over the moon to get to involve them more in my day-to-day life in the City again considering how much I miss my own dog. Whether that’s morning or evening walks, or keeping them company on the weekends, the more time I would get to spend with your dogs the happier I would be! I hope you can consider me to help you give your pet the most wonderful life and memories possible.

My Services: 

  • Dog walking in the evenings on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays after 6:30pm for 1 hour 30 mins maximum. 
  • Dog walking in the morning, lunchtime or evenings on Tuesdays and Fridays for 1 hour 30 mins maximum. 
  • Dog or Cat sitting in my home or your pets home on weekends, Tuesdays and Fridays as I work remotely on these days so I can be with your pet 24/7.
  • I'm living in the Dublin 7 area and unfortunately do not have a car, but I can access many areas via public transport. I'd be available to dog-walk or do home visits in the evenings after 6:30pm during the week, and fully available for all services on Tuesdays, most Fridays and most weekends. I can offer house sitting in the comfort of your pet's home depending on the circumstances as well, as I can work remotely Tuesdays and Fridays.

    The more info I receive on your pet the better, to ensure that I can give them the best care possible and to ensure a happy owner and a happy animal! If you have any questions or queries please feel free to message me and I'm more than happy to discuss further :) Thank you for considering me!

    Doggy Day Care
    Samara, 2024-07-08

    Martha was lovely to deal with and the booking was really straightforward. When we met her on the day of daycare we felt very confident that our dog was in amazing hands. She is very attentive to the pet needs and communicated very well during the time of the pet sitting. I would recommend her definitely and I hope she is available when we need again :)

    Having a 12 year old dog with epilepsy and behavioural problems has given me so much experience and learning in dealing with animals with their own challenges, from understanding their point of view to being patient when they get so nervous it could take hours for them to trust you. My dog has high anxiety around other dogs and people, and this is something I've learned to help her with while also keeping her happy and content. I have also pet sat for 10 days before in the owners apartment, taking care of a dachsund with long walks and plenty of cuddles and the right amount of food and sleep, having a little roomie was the best!
