I have always had dogs amongst many other animals.
I studied Animal Biology at Nottingham Trent University, worked at Mars Pet Care as a pet carer; walking, socialising and taking part with coprophagia management with dogs, as well as dog walking and sitting outside of work.
After graduating I spent a month volunteering in South Africa at Shamwari Nature Reserve doing conservation work, as well as at The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary caring for the lions and hyenas.
I can walk your dog either alone or in a group of up to 4 dogs, depending on your preferences. This is a great opportunity to allow your dog to socialise and therefore get more stimulation from their walks.
I can house sit for both cats and dogs, please see the information below:
Basic training and play.
Feeding, socialising and giving any required medication.
"We have used Rowan's services on multiple occasions now, for short breaks/pop ins over a weekend and for longer holidays, including our 2 week honeymoon. We could not be happier with the confidence we have that our 2 dogs and home will be excellently looked after.
Most importantly, it is clear that lenny and lyra adore rowan, we even caught them howling for her on one occasion just after she'd left! And it's comforting to know, particularly as rescues, they remain in the environment they know and are settled in but still get the same amount of cuddles as if we were there.....maybe more.
Secondly, we get reassurance knowing our home is safe and occupied whilst we are away, and it is always as we left it on our return. We can not praise Rowan enough."
"We would highly recommend Rowan to look after any pet. She is reliable, honest and caring. Lemmy adores Rowan and loves going for walks with her. He even lets her brush him, which we have not managed to master ourselves yet. We can’t thank you enough for your work and taking care of our Lemmy whilst we are at work."
