Hi!! I’m Katie and I finally started Homeward Bound pet services in August 2017 after dreaming about it for what felt like a life time - and I've never looked back! I'm overwhelmed with the amount of lovely reviews and all the support I get, and how lucky I've been to keep meeting super nice pet owners who need some extra help.
My days consist of dog walks, cat visits and small animal visits! I walk dogs solo unless requested otherwise which makes for nice safe walks catered to the individual dog(s).
I am a cat owner myself to a spoilt house cat called Erik and the diary is always full of cat visits which I enjoy just as much as the dog walks! Other than the cats I have also had the pleasure of caring for rabbits, rats, tortoises, hamsters and fish over the years. It really is the best job in the world!
I look forward to meeting yourself and your fluffy family members!
Hi, I'm Rio! I was chosen by Katie as a new addition to the Homeward Bound team in March 2020. I studied Animal Behaviour at Liverpool John Moores University and I have experience working at animal rescue centres.
I am so happy and grateful to have been given the opportunity to work as part of Katie's team providing one-to-one care and walkies for my client's companion animals. Animal welfare is of paramount importance to me and I aim to meet every animal's individual needs whilst they are in my care.
I have a twelve year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier myself; his name is Buster and he is my best friend! I understand the importance of knowing your pets are provided with the best care and I can assure you that I will love your animal family members as though they were my own. I can't wait to meet you!
Hi I'm Gemma and I'm so excited to be part of the Homeward Bound team!
Animals have always been a huge part of my life and having grown up always having pets around me, I understand how much of an integral part they play within a family. I love how each animal has their own unique personality and its the greatest feeling to truly understand them and their quirks, and work with them in a way that brings out their best!
I have an energetic 3 year old staffy called George who loves nothing more than to play and cuddle and, quite frankly, lives the life of luxury! I have learnt so much about dog care, enrichment and animal behaviour in the years I've had with him and I'm always looking for ways to keep learning. I am also an advocate for positive training and ethical methods.
I cant wait to meet you and your pets as we start our adventures and grow together! ♡
