About Olivia

I always loved animals, especially dogs. I was a volunteer in dog shelter for few years and I was an activist for animal rights. I miss having a dog in my life, but my working hours don't allow me to have my own dog. I live in England for 9 years and my dogs stayed in Poland with my parents (filling the gap after I've left the nest). I visit them at least 2 a year, and each time I miss them even more. I have 2 Shih-Tzu and also a parrot :) Last year my dogs had puppies, so the family increased by additional 2 dogs! Recently I went to Cuba, where I was devastated to see so many homeless dogs on every corner. But almost every day there was a dog (or dogs) that followed me and they were very persistent to keep me a company for the day! Almost as they could feel that I miss having a dog in my life so badly. My friends suggested then, that I should do something with my dog skills and I wanted to join dog sitters community to share my love with dogs :)
I live in very spacious 3 bed end of terrace house, with front garden and Crystal Palace Park less than 1 min walk away from it. I love spending my time actively, and walking around park or hiking is my cup of tea, so your dog won't be bored!
I can dog sit at my home for weekends, incl BH/long weekends and holidays. I can pick/drop your dog but also offer sitting at your house. I can check in at your home as well as wash and dry your dogs :)

    Olivia was wonderful in looking after our two dogs with a few days notice before the May bank holiday weekend. We met Olivia before to make sure both Larry and Tippi were comfortable (Tippi in particular can be wary of new people), and afterwards we knew they were in safe hands. Olivia has a lovely personality and genuinely cares about dogs. It's great to have found someone so close to home who took exceptionally good care of them and gave them lots of cuddles and TLC, and who we now trust. We would definitely ask Olivia to look after our dogs again.

    Extremely happy with Olivia, very understanding and compassionate towards our rescue dog, was a pleasure to have her look after Daphne and felt very relaxed to leave her in such good and capable hands! Highly recommended, reliable and trustworthy - big thanks.
