About Sophie

I have always had a love for dogs, being surrounded by them all my life growing up on my parents' farm. I feel this makes me very useful as a sitter/walker as I am not only very experienced around dogs but I also have experience with a range of breeds. During my upbringing my parents have owned border collies, labradors, jack russells and spaniels, and I fully appreciate the quirks of these different breeds.

I not only love being around dogs but I have experience in clicker training and agility training, so if you have a dog in training you can be confident that I would maintain the consistency whilst your dog was in my care.

I have a first floor flat with access to a garden, ideal for quick toilet trips and being very close to the meadows and close to Blackford Hill a good walk is never far away.

Although I am new to this site, I have lots of experience house sitting around my home town, which often included looking after dogs, horses and cats, so I feel confident with this responsibility.

I don't have any transport of my own, I am happy to walk over and collect dogs nearby, otherwise they will need to be dropped off. Please contact me if you have any questions, and I would love to meet you and your dog!

    Aino had a great time during her stay with Sophie: she got lots of exercise and attention. Sophie kept us updated with regular messages and pictures. Sophie is a reliable sitter whom I would definitely recommend.

    This was the first time in 6 years I have had to leave my dog Lena alone with a dogsitter, and I am so happy I found Sophie! She offers a friendly, personal service and is extremely passionate about dogs. Sophie gave me plenty of updates throughout the stay on how Lena was getting on and even sent photographs of her out on Walks! I would highly recommend Sophie as a dogsitter, and if I were to ever need her services again I would not hesitate in leaving Lena in her safe, friendly care.
