I would like to introduce myself. My name is Holly and I have just started as a dog walker/pet sitter. I have a long history of looking after dogs. My mum's dog is a Cavachon, who is 3 years old, Bailey Before this we had a West Highland Terrier who lived to old age.
I recently worked as a medical secretary but find this job way more rewarding
I have been lucky enough to have a few dogs to care for already. I looked after a puppy today while the lady was in work, which was the best job ever I also walked a West Highland Terrier this morning with a great character
If any of you are from Swansea and are looking for a walker or sitter. Please consider me and check out my gumtree advert - Holly's Dog Walking - Alternatively you can add my Facebook page Holly's Dog Walking/Pet Sitting.
Hi Holly.Welcome to the forum,it's very friendly. Yours sounds like a great job,as well as looking after peoples pooches,you will get to know some lovely people and great characters. My dog is Skip a Border Collie/Sheltie X, who is 14 yrs old,and adopted from the RSPCA 13 yrs ago.
Hi Holly and welcome to another Welsh person on the forum. I'm Jenny and I'm from Torfaen and I have 7 cats and 1 dog. What a lovely job you have - although I wouldn't enjoy it if you had my dog Kobi to walk - he's as strong as an ox and I can't hold him to walk him, especially when he meets other dogs on his walks!
What a beautiful part of Wales you are from - great for your dog walking.

Welcome to the forum hollyshoare. Although a cat owning member of the forum I enjoy reading about all the pets members have so look forward to hearing more about your (or your mum's) pets as well as the adventures you have in your job
Happy days with Roman, Osiris & Lexie (remembering Chloe & Penny)
caz2golden: On walk today saw a dead branch hanging from a tree over a road. Probably been there a while but have not noticed before! Who do you report it too, tree would be owned by whoever has the field but the branch is over highway?

lotsofcats: We had very high winds during the night and I slept through it all but if Kobi had barked just once I would immediately be awake.
Sept 13, 2017 12:49:30 GMT
caz2golden: We had the same here Lotsofcats, except I was awake for fair part of it. We had intermittent power cuts too. Felt sorry for the raw pet food delivery man the next morning who was probably coming across a lot of downed trees etc.
