Chiltern Tails is a friendly, professional and reliable pet care service based at the foot of the beautiful Chiltern Hills. Primarily offering dog walking, we also provide dog/puppy sitting, cat sitting & small animal care. Sometimes work commitments, trips away or ill health get in the way of us being able to always be there for our pets, but for whatever the reason, Chiltern Tails is here to help. We can come in and give your much loved animals all the quality care and attention they need. As pet owners ourselves, we understand how important your pets are to you and your family, therefore all animals are treated as if they were our own. Reliable, trustworthy and accommodating, you can leave your furry friends behind knowing that they are in safe hands, giving you that important peace of mind. We cover Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville, Haddenham and other villages close to these, see the bottom of the page for more details on areas covered.
I have had a passion for animals for as long as I can remember. When I was 10 years old my dreams came true when my Mum told me we were getting our first dog, a chocolate Labrador named Scoobie. Since then, two more entered the family, both of which I was largely involved with the upbringing and training of. With one of my dogs, Layla, I trained and competed in agility, obedience and rally-o over a period of 8 years (with varying success!). The youngest, Taboo, developed fear aggression as a puppy and as a result of this I have gained a lot of experience and knowledge on how to handle dogs with 'issues'. I have a large interest in and enjoy everything dog related, but I love all animals, and would have a whole farm if I could! I have experience in handling small animals too. I have owned 6 hamsters and currently have two guinea pigs and a lovely rescue cat named Daisy, she has epilepsy. I decided to set up a dog walking and pet sitting business 9 years ago and I totally love my job! Prior to that, I worked part-time at a kennels and cattery for two and a half years, which I very much enjoyed. However, it lacked the more individual and personal level of care that I wished I could have given all the dogs and cats.
For 6 years I worked in child care and was a fully qualified, Ofsted registered, home carer. I’ve always had a caring nature and have enjoyed looking after children over the years. However, I love animals and had hoped to work with them some day, so I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Jess since October 2014, one of my closest and oldest friends. With the experience I had in child care, I was fortunate enough to have many of the relevant skills that are also needed for pet care. I have a particular passion for Rabbits, I own two house bunnies, Sansa and Stanley, and I believe rabbits are extremely underestimated as pets! In my spare time, I enjoy photography. I love capturing the pure moments of joy your pets can give you, I think animals are the perfect subject. My partner and I have always loved dogs and we look forward to re-homing one in the near future!
