About Alessia

I have been a dog lover since childhood and my first puppy was Charlie, a Cavalier King Charles that my dad brought home for me when I was ten. In 2014 I adopted George the Beagle and started to face the challenges of having an active hound in London - I have since attended puppy classes with different dog behaviourists and a Dog Emotions & Cognition course delivered by Duke University in Durham. I enjoy learning about the psychology and behaviour of these intelligent and wonderful creatures, as well as being surrounded by them. As a dog owner I know how difficult it can be to find someone one can fully trust to leave their beloved puppy with - especially when they are only a few weeks old. Because of this I am open to discuss each dog's needs, so to create a routine to meet them. I specialise in day care for small and medium breeds. I provide a safe environment in the comfort of my own home where there are never more than four guest pooches at once. I am fully insured, and believe in the benefits of raw feeding and positive reward training. I very much enjoy taking pictures of our four legged visitors while training them. I have a degree in Photography from Instituto Europeo di Design in Milan and an MA in Fine Arts from Central St. Martins in London and I am currently studying for an M.Sc in Psychotherapy at Middlesex University. I love understanding humans just as much as dogs.

    It all went very well and Alessia took very good care of Lexie, and by the look of it they had good fun. Alessia is professional and flexible and very accommodating. Highly recommended. I have just booked her again! Lexie will be happy ,)

    it all went very well, quick response. Alessia has been very to propose a meeting the day before so that we could all get to know each-other. Alessia is professional and laid back and asked a few critical questions and I feel comfortable and reassured. Lexie will have a great time.
