Alex, dog sitter in London Borough of Southwark
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 ten different dogs through DogBuddy, 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.

Despite living in a new build flat, we are a couple of minutes walk from Burgess Park, which is the perfect place to walk dogs safely, with lots of green open space to explore, making it easy to avoid other dogs if your dog does not get on with others.
We're also twenty minutes walk from the most dog friendly street in the UK, in Bermondsey - ideal for any rainy days.

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 own a bike, so I can get pretty much anywhere within a 5 mile radius of Old Kent Road.

Thanks for your interest,

Alex

    Alex was great! He looked after Rosie and Napoleon when a last minute opportunity came up to go out of town. He was very accommodating and easy to deal with. The little ones loved him. Thanks again Alex!

    Alex looked after Bert for 3 days - I don't think he's had as much fun in all his little life! Alex was incredibly helpful in being as flexible as possible to accommodate our booking - even arranging to work from home on the Friday so that we could depart for our weekend getaway in time and staying late when we were held up in traffic on the way home. He made time to meet up with us beforehand which put our mind at ease (having never left Bert before) and throughout the weekend, sent lots of photos and messages to let us know how they were getting on. We had asked Alex to stay at our house so that Bert had some familiarity and the place was spotless on our return. Couldn't recommend Alex highly enough and Bert's already looking forward to their next adventure!

    Alex was great with our dog Rocky. He sent me picture updates of him while I was away which I really appreciate. I will book him again- he’s fantastic.
