Professional House Sitting and Pet Sitters on the Isle of AxholmeHouse sit availability for Summer 2019
Sister team Claire and Emma, both in their mid 30s, are the driving force behind the house sitter and pet sitting serving the Isle of Axholme, along with their own beloved 4 legged side of the family, Wizzy a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Oscar the rescued feral farm cat (now tamer and more house bound than you could imagine!), then there's Tiggy, Zeus and Kizzy our horses.
From ever since we can remember, animals have formed part of our lives, both on a personal and professional level. You could say we are the potty animal family. We often have a giggle and say Claire is like Dr. Doolittle when it comes to more sensitive dogs and Emma with the more challenging equines. Life just would not be the same without the company of a pet. When looking for a professional pet sitter to take good care of your pets and home when you are away, be assured you are in safe hands with Axholme pet sitters.
Claire has worked the past 15 years, first starting in a boarding kennel environment and moving up to management for a large kennels in Yorkshire. Moving into the area some years ago and managing a livery business and pet grooming salon, then 2 years ago she took the plunge and opened up her own pet services, offering dog walking, pet visits and expanding out to pet sitting around Epworth. The business is going from strength to strength, mostly from word of mouth and recommendations! This has now led to the launching of Axholme House Sitters and covering the whole of the Isle, plus the joining of sister Emma, who comes from a veterinary nurse background in her younger years, to now exercising her geeky side in marketing and working with house and pet sitting assignments, she also helps Claire out some days dog walking (it keeps her fit).
