About Alex


Hello! I'm a self-employed resident of the Chelsea Bridge area and live opposite the huge dog-friendly Battersea Park. My background is in wolf and canine behaviour at Oxford University (involving on-location close interactive work) and training and working with large dogs in the Arctic (up to 20 at a time!).

Boarding, walking and day care/training are my main offerings (in a safe and smoke-free home). Communication and reliability are always paramount to me as I know it can be a nightmare to plan ahead when people are slow to respond.

Due to the quantity of requests, just to let you know I prioritise:
- medium, large and giant breeds (plus pups)
- working or northern breeds
- dogs in need of training

I'll be very unlikely to accept 3+ day boarding requests for dogs I don't already know. I'm afraid I'll have to auto-decline any requests using generic text or with very incomplete profiles. It's a two-way process and good dog trainers/sitters need to know about your dog. Glossing over behavioural issues is a recipe for problems.

    Alex was brilliant at looking after our big baby Rottweiler. Was flexible with timings, gave prompt updates, and Rameses had a wonderful time and didn’t want to come home.

    Alex is wonderful as always. Very responsible, flexible abd proffesional. Polly loves him. Accepted us in short notice and was very positive and helpful all through the way. Strongly recommend for both day care and dog boarding.

    Alex was very accommodating and easy to work with from get go. He helped me with some logistic issues, and Polly seemed really happy after her active day with him. Alex was very polite and thoughtful all through the way. I strongly recommend.
