About

Hello! My name is Ana Rita but I prefer to go by Nina!

I'm an experienced pet carer who has had dogs and cats all her life and when I moved to London 4 years ago from Portugal, I was been missing the company of my furry best friends back home.

Pet Sitting

Nina was great from the first email correspondence. She came to meet me and my cat before she cat sat and sent daily pictures and updates. She went above and beyond (even bringing me parcels in while I was away). My plans changed last minute which meant I was away longer than originally planned and agreed but Nina was an absolute life saver. She even left a Christmas card and lots of cat treats for when I returned. Would highly recommend and can't imagine asking anyone else to cat sit in future. More...

Thank you so much for the kind review, Michelle! It was a pleasure to take care of Ernie and to have known you two. Wishing you all the best in the future and I hope we see each other again soon. Xx

Pet Sitting

I can not recommend Nina enough. Nina has found her calling in loving and caring for our furry family members. Nina cares for our cat Tiffany who races to the door and meows when she hears Nina arrive. Whilst we are currently work from home (covid) we wanted Tiffany to get used to a cat sitter for when we return to work - we couldn't have found a better sitter than Nina.
Nina takes her for a walk (harness), plays with her then finishes off with a brush - all done with lots of love. Nina also very intune with Tiffany - if she doesn't want to walk, she play with her, or if she wants to spend an hour outside sniffing a leaf, Nina patiently stands around with her.
Nina has also stayed over night both caring for our house and Tiffany.
Nina is kind, professional, punctual (if anything stays longer than needed) and dedicated to our fury friends.
You will be lucky to have Nina.

I am so happy to read this review from you guys! Helping you and being with Tiffany is one of my favourite things. Tiffany is such a sweet cat and I’m happy we bonded so well! You are fantastic people to “work” with and I’m happy that I found people who love and care for their pet this much. Thank you so much for the kind words x

Dog Walking

Nina has been walking our goldendoodle, Beaumont, since the beginning of 2020. I really appreciate that Nina has taken the time to get to know Beaumont’s personality and understand his energy. When I see them interact, she gives him 120% of her love and attention and he just adores her. I am also grateful for Nina’s communication, always checking in to make sure the schedule is still ok and providing me with a summary of her time with Beaumont as well as beautiful pictures! More...

Dog Walking

As soon as I met Nina I liked her personality. Bertie my Border Terrier has taken to Nina and loves his walks. His behaviour has improved too. He is much more polite now.

Pet Sitting

Nina is a cat whisperer. She took care of my two young cats for few days, and I could tell she was really spending quality time with them - they seemed to not be distressed by my absence too much! I definitely recommend Nina.

Nina took excellent care of Aiden! After a terrible experience with previous dog walkers I was very anxious and nervous about trusting someone again but Aiden came back super happy and relaxed! Honestly did now wanted to trust my dog with someone else again but I'm happy to say she exceed my expectations and will most definitely repeat the service. More...

Nina is an incredibly caring and considerate individual. She's got a passion for animals like no one I've met. My dog (nikita) loves her, every time nina is with nikita she's so attentive to her and gives her all the love and cuddles she could ask for at her old age. She would be amazing to take care of any dog, going out of her way to make sure they're going for walks, have water in their bowl and giving pooches treats where deserved. I would trust her to take care of nikita without question and know that whoever gives her an opportunity to dog sit their dog will not regret it at all. More...

I've been asking Nina to pet sit for my two lovely dogs for almost 1 year now! She is super nice and incredibly responsible. She takes them out for walks constantly when she takes care of them and I know when they're having a good time as Nina makes sure to keep me updated through out the day!
I've trusted Nina for as long as I have with my babies and will continue to do so because I know how much she likes them and I can see how happy they are when they come back home!

Q&As

Spending time with animals, specially dogs, is my favourite hobby. I used to volunteer at an animal shelter and being able to make my passion my job is the reason I love doing what I do!

I always loved animals but since I've moved to London I've been missing my dogs back home... So I've decided to spend more time with animals!

I have years of experience as a pet carer. I am responsible, reliable and have references to prove it if you need. But most important, I absolutely love what I do!
