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, 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,

    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.

    Alex was super sweet to my excitable little Pupper, who came back happy and healthy. Alex was also super flexible with our schedule and last-minute planning, which was incredibly nice of him. An absolutely great dog buddy. Will definitely be using again!
