About me

I absolutely love animals and offer 24 hr attention in a happy and relaxing environment, a break from home and a time to do new things - walks in different environments like parks, woodlands and coastal routes. I have a nice house and a garden they can wander around in, mix with new people and new places. I would like to say I am a dedicated petsitter, caring for animals on an individual basis. Just like children, they need a lot of love and protection. They receive the utmost attention when they are here and I feel we form a special relationship. I hope they enjoy themselves!

We would highly recommend using a petsitter like Dorothea. She loves being with animals, and gets on brilliantly with a wide variety of them, including dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles. Although not a pet owner herself, Dorothea is pragmatic, and is prepared to look after any pet! You can be safe in the knowledge that your pet will love staying with Dorothea. She has a lovely 3-storey house with an enclosed garden. Since she lives on the coast, her location is perfect for dog walks along the beach! What's more, there are many parks in the area, as well as woodland within walking distance. We love dedicated petsitters, and Dorothea is no exception! She is available to petsit 24 hours per day, including weekends. Your pet(s) will be individually cared for solely by Dorothea, as she doesn't tend to accept dogs or cats from different clients. In this way, her clients can be satisfied that their pets are receiving the utmost attention! Most importantly, Dorothea has a special relationship with animals - they understand each other, and she gets on extremely well with animals. Holidog highly recommends Dorothea! See less

I found the lady a bit strange.I took the trouble to meet her first and run through his routine food walks ect on collection Ted seemed happy enough to see us.while travelling home I noticed a large sore under his arm on closer examination once home he had another large sore under the other arm blood seen on his harness.she must have had his harness back to front,I can only imagine the pain whilst walking.I text her but I've had no reply.i also told her about his food ,fill my plastic tub give half in the morning and the other half around 4,this was not the case as I have hardly no food left,she told me he hadn't eaten his breakfast this is because he was probably over fed .Teddy has slept from the time we have collected him.

Abysmal. She left our dog with a dirty bum for I suspect at least a whole day. She seemed to have no care or affection for Heidi and referred to her as 'him' even after looking after her for a week. I will never use her again after such a terrible experience. See less

We felt very happy to leave Zoe with Dorathea. She kept us up to date with comments and photos and when Zoe wasn’t eating much let us know the problem and suggested how best to sort it out. She even went out of her way to cook chicken and rice and buy doggy peanut butter. Sorry about your chewed hat Dorathea. It’s now one of Zoe’s favourite toys!! See less

Dorothea was very caring and dedicated to our dogs. We have four dogs and although they are small we appreciate that it is a handful looking after all of them! They were very comfortable being there with Dorothea and she sent an email part way through our holiday to let us know that everything was OK. Highly recommended See less

We were really impressed with Dorothea. Our dog Max is nearly 13 and suffers with arthritis and falls down a lot. Dorothea was brilliant with him, ensuring he took his medication, that he didn't have more than a 30 minute walk each day & being patient when he struggled to stand & not rushing him. Max really enjoyed his stay & we were very comfortable with her and would trust her to have him again. Thanks Dorothea! See less

Dorothea looked after our dog for 12 days and was excellent. She sent me regular emails with updates on my dog which was most appreciated as my dog developed a bout of diarrhea whilst with her. I am pleased to say Dorothea coped with this very well. I would recommend her as a petsitter. See less
