Local Dog Professionals
Sies is a professional pet carer who looks at the individual animal in a holistic way. With a background in veterinary nursing, she’s been taking care of South East London’s pets since 2016 and can help you with dog walking, behaviour advice (for cats), medical at-home nursing and elderly, end-of-life care for animals.
Send your dogs on their way with Sies, and you’ll be sure to get them back well socialised and exercised, both physically and mentally.
Fun fact: Sies is the first dog walker in London (and the UK) who uses a dog-friendly e-cargo bike to transport the dogs and is working towards having a carbon neutral business. Keep your eyes open for that red-hooded bike zooming past London’s stagnant traffic! Furthermore, she has made it her mission to mentor aspiring dog walkers to make sure they feel confident to work with dogs in a positive manner. She is currently working together with Alice, who only recently decided to do a 180 and get into the dog walking business.
Sies, and her helpers approach dog walking, and pet care in general, according to the following standards: species appropriate, interactive, environmentally friendly, ethical and safe.
