About Alex

I've taken care of dogs since I was young. I've had the most experience with beagles and rescue sighthounds, but having looked after over thirty different dogs through DogBuddy since 2013, I've gained experience of a number of breeds, some with behavioural issues around other dogs. As I'm unable to have a dog of my own, dog walking and sitting is something I really enjoy.

As well as offering dog boarding, I also offer dog sitting in your home. I am trustworthy and considerate, with experience of doing this before - references available on request.

I ONLY offer dog boarding/sitting from Friday evening to Monday morning as I work 9-5 Monday to Friday. I can take last minute bookings if I'm free. I also offer dog walking by the hour, in the evenings and at weekends.

I live with four other housemates who are all dog lovers and enjoy helping with full weekends, especially with giving lots of extra cuddles.

Over Christmas, I tend to stay with my parents who have a Saluki called Boris. He is friendly with other sighthounds and some smaller breeds. I am able to look after a dog over this period but would charge a higher rate.

Thanks for your interest,

    This is my second time sending Pupper to stay with Alex. Elise, Alex's flatmate, helped as well! They both were great with Pupper, and he always comes back happy!

    Alex was fantastic with Charlie, flexible with timingd, very considerate of all his little foibles and very understanding. Charlie loved him immediately! Highly recommended sitter.
