I have been an animal lover my whole life, growing up with household cats and regularly dogsitting for friends and neighbours. Since living in London I have been a regular pet-sitter for both cats and dogs, including long term home boarding for a beautiful lab cross rescue dog named Ralph. Calm and patient with huge affection for all animals, I particularly enjoy the companionship of dogs and the chance to share an enjoyment of the beautiful outdoors. Big and small, I love them all; from calm, old meanderers to excitable puppies, you may rest assured that your furry-pawed friend will get plenty of love, attention and light-hearted conversation, in between varied and stimulating walks.
I grew up in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside so being close to green spaces in London is very important to me. Of the fifteen years I have lived in London, six of those have been based in the lovely, peaceful neighbourhood of Highgate and Crouch End and I have come to know this lovely part of London very well. Waterlow Park, Parkland Walk and Queen's & Highgate Woods are all close by, with many quiet tree-lined streets in between. The huge expanses of Hampstead Heath are not much further afield, giving plenty of options for short or lengthier walks in beautiful dog-friendly surroundings.
Having previously worked in the charity sector, I now work from home, allowing me to devote plenty of time to little furry paws and happy tails. Amongst many creative interests, I am a keen photogapher and will happily capture moments from your happy dog's adventures.
I currently divide my time between London and Italy so unfortunately can not offer continuous weekly daycare at present but my schedule is flexible so please do not hesitate to contact me in advance with any holiday boarding enquiries etc and I will be happy to accommodate them where possible. I am also more than happy to consider caring for your dog (and other pets) in their own home.
