A Little About Myself
Since I was young I have always loved animals — both learning about and taking care of them.
I have owned dogs for 15 years and have loved walking them and getting out in the fresh air. I have also had cats as pets from a young age and a variety of small animal pets when bringing up my family. I am moving away from my previous role of 25 years as an Occupational Therapist in order to do something completely different and into a role that I truly enjoy.
I am DBS checked and fully insured.
I have moved into the Wadebridge area and now have the opportunity to start Susan's dog walking and share my love of animals with pet owners in the surrounding area. I hope I get the chance to meet your lovely pet soon.
Feeding and pop ins
I will be able to pop in to your home to feed your pet and spend a little time with them, ensuring they have water and are comfortable.
I will always have a chat with them to ensure they understand what is happening (!), are not lonely and give attention and cuddles if that is what your dog likes!
I can also pop in to feed your cat or other pet and check they are ok.
I offer a dog walking service in the Wadebridge area covering Wadebridge, St Minver, St Issey and St Mabyn generally an approximate 5 mile radius around Wadebridge.
I will be able to take them on their familiar walks near to their home. I will be guided by your advice on what your dog prefers and will only take off the lead once the dog has got to know me and with the owner's permission.
I can offer visits on week days and weekends at any time of day to suit you so if you are going away or out for the day, or here on holiday, I can help.
Susan is brilliant: reliable and friendly, she provides a flexible service and clearly loves being with dogs. We’re lucky to have found her!
Susan was able to step in very promptly when I needed help and I was impressed with how she handled my lively dogs each morning; they clearly loved her. I would not hesitate to use Susan again in any of the services she offers.
We have been delighted to find Susan to look after our cats. We loved Susan's updates via text of their daily antics....it was obvious that she had taken the time to get to know their personalities. Susan's professionalism, attention to detail and warmth was instantly obvious from the minute she walked in the door. We'll be booking more holidays in the knowledge that we know we have a trusted carer for Peg and Winston. ☺️
I called on Susan at the last minute to help with an unconventional stint of minding our two Viszla's and she was extremely responsive, helpful and obviously loves dogs and knows a lot about them. An ace professional who will make your life easier and the dogs' lives happier.

At the first meeting to meet your pet, a written contract is finalised and detailed instructions taken and payment is due once this agreement is made and can be made by cash, paypal or BACS.
I cover 5 miles around the Wadebridge area so would have to charge a mileage fee of 40p per mile outside of this area and also take travelling time into account.
