Pet sitting and Dog walking services.

Hello My name is Clare. I have over 20 years of experience with all breeds and all sizes of dogs, from Working Gun dogs, GSD, Husky's , to Chihuahua's.
During my working career I have worked in dog Kennels , rescue centres , Livery stables, Free range chicken farm and Manchester University. I also have experience with Rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, hamsters and birds.
A large amount of my pet sitting work is currently home visits to cats. To feed, play and clean litter. I have experience with Rescue , Indoor, and diabetic cats.
I also provide dog walks to suit the dogs. Energetic for those with lots of energy or a nice quiet stroll for the elderly or the lazy. I have a van that can be used to transport pets if needed, fitted with safe dog cages.
I am fully insured and CRB checked.

I competed in show jumping and cross country with my horses a few years back but they are sadly no longer here.
I have worked with animals since leaving school and have studied NVQ level 2 Animal husbandry. Currently studying Puppy training, Dog Psychology and Behaviour course with Pet Addict.
Passed the Animal training and pet sitting course with a Distinction grade with International open Academy. Oct 2016
Diploma in dog walking and pet care with International Academy.
Diploma in Animal care with International Academy including first aid.
Studied Pet Nutrition and Essential Cat and Kitten care.

I am a country girl at heart, so there is nothing better for me than to put the lead on a dog and get out and explore, or get down and dirty with a farm. I also enjoy pet sitting for a variety of different animals, either in my home or daily visits to feed, check and cuddle. I have a dog that is my world and a cat that is miss independent. My life is full with animals around me.

My aim is to keep your pet as happy as if you were at home. Take away the stress and result in happy and content pets.
Your pet will be treated as if it were my own.

We have Sam walked three times per week by Diddly Steps and it has been a life saver. We love that we get sent photos of his walks and the walking log is great as well. Couldn't wish for a better service. Sam is a very happy dog and we are very happy owners. Thank you.

Clare has been walking our big lad Jacko for the past 6 months now and we have seen such an improvement with his lead walking and social behaviour. He waits for her to arrive and sits at the window when she leaves. This service is amazing for us as we are unable to walk him ourselves. We can thank you enough. Jim and Carole

Thank you so much for helping out with my wife's chickens. We know it was a bit of a strange request but they are like family to her and you kept them safe. Hope you enjoyed the eggs. Great service and highly recommend. James and Sue.

Can't thank Diddly Steps enough for looking after our Border Collie Benson over the past year. We've called her so many times in an emergency to walk Benson while iv been busy with my new baby or to come and have an over night stay. Clare is always accomodating and Benson is extremely happy when Clare walks through the door. Looking forward to many more years working with Clare and Diddly Steps
