About Dax

Hi there! My name is Dax and I've been a dog lover all my life. I'm American 10+ years in the UK, my family is my wife Emily and Bertie, our 10 year old Greyhound. He's an ex-racer we rescued through the Retired Greyhound Trust.

Bertie has a bed in every room of our house, his own extra-long sofa so he can stretch out, and an array of clothing from spring jackets, winter jackets, pyjamas, and even a thundershirt to make him feel safe on stormy nights. We love him, as we love all dogs, and would certainly accommodate your dog with the same loving care that we show him.

We are able to day-sit some dogs. Bertie is not very good with other male dogs but he is excellent company for a female sighthound like a Greyhound, Whippet, Italian, or Lurcher. However, I know that every dog is unique, and it is worth giving the dogs a chance to meet each other.

I work from home in Ladywell and am very flexible. My local parks are Hilly Fields, Ladywell Fields, and Greenwich Park.

    Dax was wonderful- really kind, reliable and so obviously a dog lover that it was impossible to not feel good about leaving our dog in his care. He was communicative and flexible with our requests and changes- a really lovely man. Thank you so much!

    Thank you Sarah. Zeus was great to spend the week with, and I will miss his rolling on the ground... he does it so well!

    At the end of the day, it all comes to having a happy dog and Dax made sure that my dog was happy and cared for every day. He takes a genuine interest in learning more about each breed and dedicates his time in making sure that your dog is well looked after. My big Rottie Ektoras has now a new friend!

    Thank you Villy! It has been wonderful to get to know Ektoras, and I hope he enjoys Florida. I can see him in a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses!
