Hello! I have always been brought up around animals and am a definite dog person. I was raised in Sydney, Australia and have been in London for over four years. I have lost my two alaskan malamutes (one to old age, and one to cancer) and it has been one of the most difficult things I have ever been through! BUT - the silver lining is that I have a ground floor apartment equipped for any sized dog, and I have a huge soft spot for big and old dogs :)
I have a backyard with doggy door so your pooch can choose to be outside or indoors. I am also a five minute walk from Victoria Park. If your doggy needs someone to be at home with them to keep them company, I can usually work from home one day a week. For the other four days, they would be at home in the backyard or house (if they can use the doggy door) and I can walk them before and after work (usually home between 6-6.30pm).
I am a 15 minute walk to my local vet in case of an emergency, and because I was care-taker for Cassie when she had cancer, I am also good at dosing with any oral medication required.
