Hi I’m Caroline,
Professional Poop Picker Upper!
As my job title states I am a professional poop picker upper, I am also the founder of The Pet Sitter Solihull and Rebarkable Dog Adventures.
During the summer of 2021 when Covid restrictions lifted slightly, Paul and I decided that a summer break would be a good way to recharge the batteries. Having worked for a charity supporting the elderly, 2021 had been a particularly busy and tiring year.
With 2 guinea pigs and 3 cats we needed someone who could deal with all their different quirks and challenges. After much searching we both came to the decision that separate holidays were the only way forward. So that year I went away with my children, and then Paul went away with his. Fine for one year, but not an ideal solution for future family holidays.
It was on my return back to work after the holiday, that I realised I could combine my caring qualities from work with my love of animals. The Pet Sitter Solihull was founded to provide a premier cat feeding service and overnight home & pet sitting for Solihull’s pets.
I love being outdoors and exploring the countryside which is why I decided to add dog walking to the services. However, I knew that if I found pavement walks around the block boring, then what must the dogs think. And this is how Rebarkable Dog Adventures came to be.
Rebarkable Dog Adventures are the ultimate experience for energetic dogs that love exploring new places and sniffing out new adventures.
Meet the rest of the team behind Rebarkable Dog Adventures
We’re a caring team made up of humans and furry creatures that love the outdoors, cuddles, treats and 6am zoomies around the house (the furry creatures, definitely not the humans 😉)
The Accountant and Adventure Leader
Paul has a love for numbers, pets and football (he is an Arsenal fan). When he is not running around playing games with dogs you can find him running around the tennis court chasing tennis balls. He has a mean serve which makes him the perfect adventure leader when ball throwing is required.
Playlist Organiser and Adventure Leader
Although Tom spends most of his time away at university he can be spotted on an adventure or two during his holidays. Tom is a fan of heavy metal music and is always asking his electric guitar tutor to teach him rock songs. When Tom is in the van you can be sure that your dogs will be listening to his playlist!
Office Manager and The Boss
Don’t tell her, but Ivy is actually the boss of everyone. If she’s not happy she will let you know, she didn’t get her nickname Grumble Puss for no reason. Ivy is definitely a morning cat, she loves a snuggle in bed first thing. Make the most of this time as that will be the only cuddle you’ll get from her.
Social Media Manager and Cuddle Provider
A gentle giant is this beautiful boy Ivar. He will always come in for an evening cuddle and if you’ve got the time for tummy tickles he’ll be your best friend.
Marketing Manager and Lead Mischief Maker
If there is any mischief going on in the house then the finger of suspicion invariably points to this little chap! Ivan’s favourite hobbies include licking shower trays, climbing up bare legs with claws out and hiding under bathroom mats ready to pounce on any nearby toes.
Rainbow Bridge Greeter
Along with Spike, Molly, Domino Snickers, Fudge and Bella; we like to think that Podge is playing in the grass and eating strawberries at the Rainbow Bridge. She is ready to greet all who join her 🌈
