INTRODUCTION

Who I am and why I am a dog walker and pet sitter

My name is Caroline and I have owned my own dogs for 20 years and was brought up around different animals.


My first career, lasting over 20 years, was caring for children, looking after them and their family pets. I decided I needed to change my career as I felt I was missing out on spending time with my own dogs and as I love the outdoors and being active I couldn’t think of anything better than a new venture as a full time dog walker and pet sitter! 


I want to help people who can’t be with their pets through the day, like I did with the children.

A typical day will involve taking them out, giving them lots of love and attention, making new friends and having lots of fun and exercise. When we return home I give them a treat, then make sure they are all settled and comfortable before leaving your pet relaxed and ready for a sleep prior to your return.

 

Cannot thank 'follow my lead' enough for their pet sitting services. We were away for 5 days & Caroline took such great care of our whippet Layla. She went on amazing walks, had loads of playtime & made some new doggy friends! We were nervous leaving Layla for the first time ever by herself (Layla's life-long companion in our other dog sadly died earlier in the year). Caroline was sympathetic to our worries & sensitive to Layla's potential anxiety. We got photo updates & daily texts & Layla got lots of love & attention (including a night of Caroline sleeping on the sofa with Layla for the first night, to make sure she was ok). We absolutely will be calling on 'follow my lead' each & every time we require dog walking/ pet sitting services.

Thanks so much to Caroline for taking care of Bella whilst we were away on our holiday. She visited our rabbit twice a day every day. Caroline developed quite a bond with her and obviously cares a lot for the animals she looks after. It was very reassuring to know our house was also being looked after and I appreciated returning home to daily reports and reassurance that our pet was happy and receiving the best of care. I would recommend follow my lead to anyone.

My girl Hattie really enjoys her walks with Caroline - I love looking at the pics Caroline posts showing Hattie running and playing with a huge grin on her face . Hattie means the world to me but I totally trust Caroline to take care of her as I would myself. Strongly recommend Caroline to anyone who's thinking of using a dog walking service .

Kathy

 

Caroline is amazing with animals , our three dogs absolutely love her . It's nice to be able to go away and not have to worry about the dogs or the house .

Helen

 

I'd like to recommend Follow My Lead. Caroline worked hard to gain my rabbits' trust and kept in touch with daily messages and photos, which I truly appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble, she made sure the rabbits' routine was kept, replaced things that had run out, put out recycling and more. I'll definitely book Follow My Lead next time I go away. Thank you again Caroline!

Samantha

 

Caroline is completely professional in her approach to looking after your canine family member. It helps that she's also very friendly and approachable. We can't find fault with Caroline's dog walking services. Highly recommended
