About Colin

Hi, my name is Colin. I absolutely love all animals. I've had animals my whole life of all shapes and sizes, and I've minded a lot of dogs, so I would consider myself very experienced. I am comfortable minding all animals. I am in the process of completing an Animal Welfare course in DFEi with the intentions of becoming an Animal Care Assistant in a Veterinary practice.

I would consider myself a very friendly, reliable and honest person. I've worked voluntarily in the DSPCA for a year which I was Garda Vetted for. I also have plenty of experience minding pets, specially dogs (but also cats and hand-raered birds). I also have a full Irish driving license.

Please consider me if you need your pet minded. Myself and my wife Sandra both love all animals. We live in Blackrock in our own cozy house with a big back garden and a park close by so we bring your dog out for walks as many times as needed per day. We are comfortably able to mind up to 3 dogs at the same time. We will always communicate with the owners for transparency and safety if the dogs are from different owners. I am also open for minding your pets in your own house.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Colin was so helpful and kind to Dusty. There was no problem taking him at short notice and he kept us updated daily while he looked after him. Colin has a lovely set up for the dogs and obviously a great affinity and love for them. Couldn't recommend enough !

Colin looked after Ollie, our golden retriever for a week. Colin was so professional and kind on our meet and greet and we felt so reassured leaving Ollie with him. The logistics of dropping and collecting Ollie were incredibly easy! Colin communicated with us frequently with texts and photos. Ollie obviously was superbly cared for and we were so appreciative of this fantastic level of care. We would highly recommend Colin and we will definitely be booking with him going forward.
