Claire, dog sitter in Alfreton

Experienced dog care & peace of mind


Add To Wish List

I am an experienced dog handler (full time DBS checked teacher) who works as a dog sitter during the School Summer Holidays. In addition to Dog Buddy's Insurance, I have my own Pet sitting insurance through PBI .
I have rehomed several dogs from rescue charities such as Tia Greyhound & Lurcher rescue and Retired Greyhounds Trust. Currently, I just have one dog, a friendly retired greyhound, named Auryn. We usually walk in nearby Alfreton park but there are also safe fields and common land directly around the back of our home. Our garden is large, organic ( am a keen gardener but don't use any chemicals and planting is dog friendly) and has secure wooden 6ft fences. Decor is relaxed as this is a very dog friendly home and dogs use sofas and chairs etc. I only pet sit during the School holidays and weekends, but being at home during this time, means your pets have my full attention and care and being a keen gardener, dog often enjoy pottering around outside as I am gardening in addition to their usual walks.
The local Alfreton Vets is just around the corner and offers 24/7 'Vets Now' call out care in case of emergencies.

Am currently available weekends - but now also during the October half term
22 - 30th October
