I'm an animal lover and have lived with pets all my life. Over the years our family has cared for a number of dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, fish and a terrapin turtle.
Whilst at university, I lived in a house share with three rescue dogs, a parrot and a budgie so I've never been too far from an animal loving home.Although I am relatively new to Pawshake, pet sitting in particular has been part of my life for over three years and I have enjoyed the variety of pets and breeds I get to work with. I have worked with rescue dogs and have experience with nervous and stressed dogs across a number of different breeds. I believe pets are an extension of our families and as such treat them with the good care they deserve. I have a certificate in Canine First Aid (UK) and have some experience with administering basic oral medication for dogs as well as caring for elderly dogs. I do enjoy the company of cats and dogs and therefore spend as much time as possible with them as I understand how difficult it may be for them and you when apart.
I do not currently have any pets of my own but would love to help other pet lovers look after theirs. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like any further details or to arrange a meet up.
Christel exceeded my expectations. She is definitely the person I can fully entrust the care of my beloved old dog and my home. During the 4 days she sent me regular updates and pictures where I could see that both were enjoying their time together. She also managed to keep my dog calm and relaxed during the fireworks of the Grand-Dukes birthday (something I never managed before by myself!). This made me feel happy and relaxed during my holidays. I’m so grateful for all she did for my baby :)
My dog has been enjoying his walks with Christel. She sends photos regularly and updates me promptly. She takes her time with him, even on rainy days. Christel gives me peace of mind when I can’t take care of him.
