I'm Jacky and Happy Pets is my independent dog walking and pet

sitting service, which I began operating in south east Sheffield

in June 2008. I moved to the Isle of Axeholme in November 2014

so I am now pleased to be able to offer my services to North



I have always had a real passion for animals since I was a small

child, after watching TV classics like Lassie and Black Beauty.

I have always had pets in my home and I became vegetarian at

the age of 12.


Before taking on my dog walking and pet sitting service, I

worked as a warden at the Sheffield Cats Shelter and I have

been a volunteer dog walker for Thornberry Animal Sanctuary

and also Sheffield Dog Rescue. I am very passionate about

animal welfare and I find volunteering very rewarding.

Unfortunately all animal charities are now in crisis and are

desperate for our help.


I live with my partner Jon, who helps out occasionally, and our menagerie of rescue pets - Izzy the German Shepherd/Border Collie, 4 cats, 2 guinea pigs, a rabbit and 2 goldfish so, as you can see, we are used to being very hands on and getting mucky!


Both Jon and I are experienced pet owners and both love animals, so you can be sure that we will give your pet the same warmth and love that we give to our own animals, which is vitally important in helping your pet to adjust to the brief time away from you. We aim to stick to your pet’s usual routine as much as possible and we don’t mind mucking in and getting our hands dirty.


We are more than happy to take your dog for a long walk in the rain or roll around on our hands and knees to play with your cat or small pet. Food bowls, feeding areas and litter trays are always cleaned thoroughly every day and a log of our visits is kept daily and will be left for you on your return.


We are both police checked and have full public liability insurance. These documents are always made available for your inspection at the consultation. Please be assured that when we visit your home, we will be discreet, respectful and tidy. Although we are on hand to look after your pet, we will also safeguard your home by opening & closing curtains, turning lights on & off, even watering your plants and putting the bin out. Just tell us what you require.


I have genuine checkable references from many of my human clients. Please ask if you would like to see any or visit the testimonials page.
