About Me

I am Gillian Trevett, pet minder

Established 2015

 FULLY INSURED & DBS CHECKED

In the USA, with my first dog, Kayla

Let me tell you a little about myself

Over 35 years of experience, knowledge and training

My love of all animals has been passed down from my Mum who grew up with dogs. In my teenage years my love of horses led me to working with hunters and racehorses at Bridport. Cats were a large part of my life at that time too – they are a great natural rat and mouse deterrent; I wormed and flea-treated all the cats living in the stable yards.

I moved to America and worked on a stud farm with American Saddlebred Horse where I coached and trained young riders for the show ring. It was during my time in America that I bought my first dog, Kayla, a Rottweiler.

Kayla came home to England with me and over the years my love of dogs – and in particular Rotties – led me to owning and breeding this wonderful breed. Since 1994 all my dogs qualified and competed at Crufts and I am very proud of their achievements. More recently I have been gaining more valuable experience – with cats – at the Snuggle Inn Luxury Cat Hotel in Eastleigh; owners Jo and Adie Ellis will be happy to provide a reference to any potential ‘Sweet Harmony’ clients who would like one.

"We started using Gilly at the start of the year to look after our boys Dexter & Nacho whilst we are away. We were nervous at first as it's the first time we have done anything like this, they would normally go to a cattery. We had nothing to worry about, Gilly is amazing! We have complete peace of mind knowing she is caring for them just as we would want ..."

“We've been working with Gill for over a year now and always feel we can totally relax while we're away as the cats are in such good hands. My old cat Jinty who has sadly gone over the rainbow bridge now adored Gill & definitely considered her as second Mum. Thanks for all your help Gill!

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Gillian for over 25 years. She is one of the most trustworthy & selfless people that I know of. With an enormous love for all creatures great & small. Gillian is one of only 3 people I would trust with my own animals, as she always puts them & their safety first above anything else. She has helped out in my Luxury Cat Hotel and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone as a walker or pet sitter.”

Superb service from Gillian. Our cats Henri & Poppy were looked after as well as we look after them and seemed relaxed and happy when we returned (and extremely well groomed!). Felt no need to worry whilst on our holiday as we knew they were in safe and trustworthy hands. We will be using Sweet Harmony Pet Services every time we are away now and thoroughly recommend Gillian.”
