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 a 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. I moved here fifteen years ago and have been lucky enough to call Highgate my home for the past six years. The beautiful green spaces of Waterlow Park, Parkland Walk, Queen's and Highgate Woods are all close by, with the huge expanses of Hampstead Heath 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 photographer and will happily capture moments from your dog's adventures.
I am experienced with all ages, sizes and temperaments and looking after dogs is an absolute passion of mine. Please note that I currently divide my time between London and Italy so unfortunately I am not able to offer continuous weekly daycare at present. However my schedule is flexible so please do not hesitate to contact me in advance with any holiday boarding enquiries and I will be happy to accommodate them where possible. I am also more than happy to care for your dog (and other pets) in their own home.
