About Roxana

I was raised with pets, including a Newfoundland named Nero, the doggy love of my life. Caring for a 150lb gorgeous beastie of a dog for over ten years means I've dealt with pretty much every challenge and issue imaginable - nothing really daunts me at this point.

My experience with animals also includes volunteering at a rescue shelter for over 3 years. My home, which I share with my friend Linda, is in a super dog friendly building (there are three bulldogs living on our floor alone). We have a rooftop terrace with a special dog area (so your cutie will always have new friends to play with), a park right in front of the main entrance and another one a ten minute walk away.

While the heartbreak of losing my last dog means I'm not quite ready to add a new member to the family, I would love to make some new furry friends I can help look after for you. I would be happy to walk your dog(s) or take him/her/them in when you're on holiday. My availability includes evenings and weekends and most bank holidays, but I'm also open to hosting your dog during workdays when you're on holiday. If preferable to you and your dog(s), I am open to coming over to your place to feed and walk him/her/them while you're away.

    Roxana is happy and welcoming and looked after my cooper perfectly. He was happy with her and came back to us happy and healthy. Highly recommended

    Excellent dog sitter. It was our first time leaving our dogs and Roxana made sure all nerves were put to rest with prompt responses and photo updates throughout the dog's stay. Fudge and Lana's personalities and specific requirements were understood and all their needs were met. It was lovely to know they were cuddled up and cosy with such a kind and caring sitter. Overall an excellent and adaptive service I'd strongly recommend.
