About Niamh

About Me I am an Irish girl in my 40s. Being a yoga and mindfulness teacher allows me to travel to amazing locations and I am always open to new opportunities. I hang out in southern Thailand quite a bit with my love, he has 5 dogs, 6 cats and 3 hens! While I travel I also get to help with caring for needy or ill strays. I founded a GOFUNDME.COM/HELP-THAI-DOGS campaign to aid with the finances. When I am not teaching inhouse classes I work online teaching. I am home in Ireland every summer, and this year it looks like I will be spending much more time here in west Mayo. Dog Walking; I love Dog Walking and I am often hired to take dogs on walks throughout neighborhoods under the employment of dog owners. Pet Sitting: I supervise pets in the event of their owners' absence by grooming, providing food and water, taking dogs on walks and to vet appointments, administering medication and providing companionship. Please note that my rates are for a 24hr period. I charge €5 hourly there after and this can be paid cash at the time of pick up 🐕😁 Qualifications; Holistic Health for pets. Animal Reiki. Dog Training with Dr Iain Dunbar Level 1 & 2. Why I want to house sit; I love to spend time with pretty much all animals. I have worked in boarding kennels and I saw the upset that can often happen when animals are separated from their people and brought to stay in an (often noisy) unfamiliar environment. For this reason I began to take some dogs into my home. Because I travel lots I can see the benefits of a house/pet sitter-animals are creatures of habit and maintaining a regular routine is good for them and peace of mind for their owners. My Experience I have been a semi professional Pet and House Sitter for 4 years now. My responsibilities have included.. Provided in home daytime, evening and overnight pet, farm and exotic animal care including: dog walks; fed meals; gave treats; refilled water bowls; cleaned litter boxes and other messes; play and cuddle time; recorded date, time and description of services provided after each visit I have administered oral and topical medications as well as gave insulin injections Frequently I provide house sitting duties which included: collected mail, newspaper and packages; watered plants; put garbage/recycling bins out on designated days And I have done many long stay IN HOUSE pet and home care. I've conducted new client meetings which consisted of: meeting clients and pets; gathering pet information; answering questions and offering advice; picking up keys.

Niamh was a warm, friendly and kind sitter. My dog Polar had a wonderful weekend spent with Niamh. I got daily updates with photos and videos so I didn't have to feel anxious about how he was doing. He was very happy and content and he was fabulously looked after. I would highly recommend Niamh to anyone looking for a sitter. She has a lot of knowledge, very professional and shows a lot of care.

Niamh was excellent and we have a very happy puppy back home. She is extremely pleasant to deal with, responds promptly and sent fantastic updates during the day. Highly recommended.

Very good minder, gives lots of love and walks and has lots of knowledge, would highly recommend. Jason
