I have always had dogs in my life, & follow Jan Fennels 'the dog listener's approach. I have done TrustedHouseSits.com, Borrowmydoggy.com, AirBNB, had students for many years so I am DBS checked etc. I have a large house with large fully enclosed garden, two different sized dog baskets, seat belts, leads, extender leads & brushes. I also have an estate car which is safe and secure to take dogs for downland walks, (devils dyke, lancing ring etc), river walks, woodland walks, withdean puppy park & hollingbury dew pond (summer) to mention a few.
Before I agree to look after your dog, I ask that you bring your dog(s) to my house for a two way assessment. I like to get to know your dog, establish initial rapport, find out about likes, dislikes & your dogs personality to ensure that they'll fit in & also ensure that your dog will be happy with the existing 'pack' of mainly small breeds; ranging in ages from 4 months to 3 years old. I am unable take un-neutered older dogs as all my current dog are either neutered or very young. I also have small dogs that i regularly look after, so will only take on small dogs.
I provide a loving, fun & safe environment. I can also help out with behavioural issues that your dog may have - pulling on leads, anxiety etc, this will entail a few modifications to the owners approach in the main :). I am on 'whatsapp' and send pictures/videos of your dog during their stay with me. :)
I look forward to hearing from you.
