About Donna

I am a 54 year-old artist from Glasgow who has moved to Donaghmede one year ago to be with my Dublin fella.  

Dogs have always played a big part in my life from childhood:  

· brought up with labradors  

· co-owning dogs with friends  

· live-in carer for dogs (and cats) while owners on vacation 

· latterly helped out a friend when setting up her dog-walking business 

I have got to know the beaches and parks very well around Donaghmede, Raheny, Baldoyle, Portmarnock, Sutton and Howth and love to see the dogs taking their space there. 

As a writer and video-maker working from home, my schedule is very flexible and can work around you and your pet’s needs.  

I can offer:  

· two one hour-long walks a day, primarily on local beaches, or in local parks (available from early morning till early evening for walks) 

· administration of tablets  

· up to two dogs boarding at my home at a time (and I will be working from home during that time). There are no other pets at home, no children, only myself and my partner. Visiting dogs can bring their own bed/ blanket and can sleep in the open plan living room/kitchen area. We have a decent sized grassed over back garden, completely secure with high walls and one locked gate. 

· Pet sitting in your own home overnight (for a whole week), include plant care, etc 

I understand the importance of listening carefully to your specific instructions on your pet's feeding regime, administering medications, treat allowance, training/ command words, etc - Basically creating confidence quickly in your dog and I's new relationship.

Dog Boarding
David, 2024-07-07

Maude was so well looked after with Donna. Lots of trips to the park or beach for her and plenty of updates for us. Our travel times were awkward and Donna was very flexible and accommodating of our arrangements. A friend recently asked if we knew a dog sitter and without hesitation we recommended Donna.

Donna minded my 2 family dogs for 4 nights while we were away. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her for anyone in need of a dog sitter.

She kept us up to date and shared plenty of photos of the doggos enjoying themselves. Her house was like their home away from home.

We will definitely be using Donna again next time we need a dog sitter :)
