You are invited to discuss your needs and expectations openly, and then decide whether you would like to proceed with a booking.

Experience with animals and own pets

I had a wonderful Great Dane, Oskar, who was a true 'gentle giant'. He was a family member with a very loving personality. I always enjoyed going for walks with him and spending time with him. As a family we miss him dearly.

I’ve also looked after various other people's pets and I enjoy meeting new people and their animals!
