Charlie The Dog - Pet Sitting

Hi Im Richard Holland


I am CRB checked ( June 2018 ), and of course have references / testimonials ( see below ).

My background is mainly travel, having worked in the aviation industry as a long haul Purser for 16 years, flying round the world!

I have also been a VIP Butler in a Stately home ( Englefield Manor ) in Berkshire , UK, and in Belgravia , London, so I am accustomed to the finer things in life too!

I am very much into alternative therapies, and I am currently studying sports massage. I am also a fully trained and insured waxing therapist ( for men only ).

I would like to think my strengths are:-

Organisation, cleanliness ( borderline OCD )! timekeeping, and a warm and friendly personality.

I do drive, however I DONT have a car, so I favour assignments in or around a city or large town, and / or near a mainline railway station.


Richard looked after my house for me for 2 weeks in June this year.  We also have 2 Labrador's, Monty and Bertie and a cat called sandy. We live out in the sticks, so needed someone to keep an eye on the house and to allow the dogs to stay home rather than going into kennels. Richard did a superb job of both. His attention to detail is second to none. We will be asking him again next year  when we go off to the Caribbean for a month.  Thanks again Richard.... Monty still looks out for you in the morning!

Richard has been a personal friend for some 12 years now. He has always looked after my Lhasa Apso’s (Lil & Lou) whilst I have been away on tour and holidays. He also looked after my Leonberger (Azlan too), until he passed in 2016.He always spends time with them and makes sure that they are well groomed, bathed, fed and looked after all times, even with vet trips etc.He keeps the house tidy and clean for me for when I get back. I would have no hesitation in giving him a reference for future

Richard has been looking after our family dog and her newly born puppies since Match 2018. At all times Richard was supportive and actually went above and beyond what we agreed to ensure that our pets were totally looked after with food, treatments and also loved!. When we got back from our holiday, he has been and fetched up some shopping which was a major help to us with us getting back late. Excellent work, just get in touch if you would like me to confirm the above.
