Local Dog Walkers & Pet Sitters
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 is currently setting up a social enterprise that provides veterinary palliative and hospice care for animals, at-home euthanasia, emotional support and pet bereavement talking therapy for their caregivers, accessible to all. She expects this business to be up and running by 2022.
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.
