Welcome to Cosy-Bee’s Pet Services

I founded Cosy-Bee’s Pet Services in 2015 to provide pets and their owners with a professional, trustworthy and caring service where their needs are paramount. Whilst in my care, each pet is treated and cared for as my own are.

Services provided

  • Dog Walking – solo and carefully planned group walks
  • Daily Pet Checks – 30 minute visits to break up your pets day, whilst you’re out or on holiday (if your pet does not require overnight care)
  • Pet Minding – for those days or evenings that owners are out for longer than their pets are used to (not overnight)
  • Online Pet Shop – looking to buy a gift for your pet, or an animal lover you know … or maybe a little something for yourself 


Tell me a bit more about yourself.

I have always loved animals. As a child, I grew up with a family rabbit, hamster and gerbils, and family members’ dogs. Whilst studying for my Psychology degree, I had two gerbils. After leaving university, I volunteered at a local animal charity gaining experience working with dogs. These dogs had various needs, had come from various backgrounds, and came in all shapes and sizes. In 2010, as a family, we adopted an 18-month-old Jack Russell Terrier, Myrtle. I went on to work in the travel industry whilst working towards my diploma in Dog Obedience. After a few years, I moved back into working with animals at a veterinary practice. Again, my experience with animals grew covering the care of a wider variety of animals. My time at the vets was an absolute privilege; however, I made the tough decision to leave the practice and begin a new adventure caring for animals outside of a medical setting. At the end of December 2019, my partner Mike and I adopted 4-year-old Dogue de Bordeaux cross, Remington. In November 2020, we were joined by two guinea pigs, Sarah Connor and Ripley, who spend most of the day noisily demanding more veggies.

“Sophie helped me out at very short notice to feed my two house cats, she is a lovely lady, very professional, reliable and communicative, all the things you want for your pets.

Thank you Sophie!!” – Jules, Torquay

Wouldn’t trust anyone else to look after our beloved pets. They are always truly spoilt when Sophie comes to look after them.

We never need to worry when Sophie is attending to them. Thanks Sophie!” – Jenny & Gareth, Brixham

“Benson trained at Goodrington when he was 6 months. Have kept up the great advice. He is now 1 yr, he still sits well, recall is not bad and he can be let off lead in safe open spaces. Well worth the effort. Highly recommend this training. SOPHIE IS BRILLIANT ” – Angela, Torquay

“We absolutely love the notes [Sophie] leaves us as we get an idea of what Reg is up to when he’s out and about. We greatly appreciate [Sophie’s] flexibility when we let [her] know last minute if we are off work.

“Sophie is really friendly and approachable. She is gentle with Jesse and has a sense of fun. Sophie is flexible if I have any day to day problems crop up and between us we can usually find a solution so Jesse is cared for. Sophie takes Jesse on a variety of walks, she interacts with him, plays with him and really cares for him. I am very thankful for her service. I also wanted to add that I am really grateful for feedback Sophie gives, if she thinks Jesse has been unwell/different during the day. This is really helpful and reassuring to me.” – Heather, TorquayJesse
