  5. AlphaPaws Pet Sitting
Description:

HOW DID IT ALL START.....

I had been looking after friends' pets for a few years on and off: while  they had weekends away, went travelling overseas on holiday, stag/hen parties, late meetings or working away, etc.
It was when I was looking after a friends  dog, other pets and  another dog for a family wedding,  that my friend casually suggested that I could do this as a living.  A seed was planted, but it would be another three years until AlphaPaws was created.

MY PET HISTORY.....

When I was younger we had a family Dog - a King Charles Cavalier  Spaniel  called Tegwyn (pictures below).
A few years ago I was adopted by a lovely ginger cat called Gingy/Nala .
​When my Nana passed away I took her  cat, Cookie, in .
All have sadly gone over the rainbow bridge now.

When I was very young I had two fish - Flash and Gordon. :)
My nana always had cats, and my uncle had pet rats; I always looked forward to seeing them on our Sunday visits.
​My nana always    said "never trust a person who doesn't like animals......"

PETS I LOOK AFTER NOW.....

​I look after dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits and fish (others on consultation).
​Your pet will be looked after in the comfort of their own home and you can be assured that they will receive the excellent individual care that they deserve.

EDUCATION AND GOING FORWARD......

I have a BA Hons Degree  in   Social   Anthropology,  with a focus on cognition . I also hold a  PTLLS - now called  AET.

I am currently studying ​Canine Behavior certificate    with The International School for Canine Psychology and Behavoiur (ISCP) .
I also study with Canine Principles  CPD courses including: 

  • Feline Health & Wellness
  • Dogs and Children Course
  • Senior Dog Care Course
  • Canine Enrichment
  • Solving Separation Related Problems
  • Canine Communication - The Language Of A Species

​In October 2017 I attended and completed a Cat and Dog Emergency First Aid Course issued by 1stAiders which lasts 3 years.  (Due to Covid-19 no in-person classes are running  at the moment, just online refreshers, but it will be updated as soon as they become available, although I have done online one )

​I am DBS (previously CRB) checked and I am insured with Pet Business Insurance - including care, custody and control, loss of keys and public liability.
​I am registered with   NARPS, National Association of Pet Sitters & Dog Walkers.

​I have completed PDSAs e-learning course: Pet First Aid and Medicine, with a pass rate of 100% and I have also completed Narps' online Pet Sitting and Dog walking course - which is LANTRA approved.

In order to keep up to date with my CPD, I am a Kennel Club Affiliate and sign up to different short courses and information sites, including an online Animal Behaviour and Welfare course held by the University of Edinburgh.

​I am a participant in the  Canine Principles Associates Program
