A resident of Solihull for more than 30 years, I am based here serving Solihull and the surrounding areas.

About Fiona
I have always had a great love of dogs having been surrounded by them from childhood and studied dog behaviour inspired by Jan Fennell 'The Dog Listener'.

I set up 'Fiona's Four-Legged Friends Care' in Solihull several years ago to provide an affordable alternative to kennels because like a lot of dog owners I could not have entertained a kennel environment for my little dog Gracie when I was away as she was used to a warm, loving home along with a sofa to snooze on and I felt that a kennel would be like sending her to a cold prison in comparison.

I began by advertising as a dog sitter myself (initially alongside part-time employment) but soon found I was unable to cope with the demand (I only knew of one other lady, Liz offering the service in Solihull at the time) and so after a while I was joined by a friend, two neighbours, a few customers and following much searching, some local dog lovers, who also kindly agreed to open up their homes to our much loved canine family members.

Several years on I now run a small business that I'm very proud of and have managed to retain the personal touch I always felt was paramount to its success. I have no other business interests, ambitions to franchise or expand my pet sitting business nationwide but prefer to concentrate on maintaining and improving my reputation locally whilst still being able to offer dog boarding at my home which is what I always loved doing.
