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.
- 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.
