I'm a true dog lover and grew up with them in the Irish countryside for 18 years before leaving home. The breeds we had there were labradors and sheep dogs. No doubt, I picked up a lot of experience during these years in grooming, obedience, socialisation with other pets and I really enjoyed training.
More recently I spent a lot of time doggy sitting two shih tzus (Choco y Nala) last summer in a hot Madrid. My responsibilities there were feeding, playing with them and of course walking so I have experience of handling in pairs. One of the dogs was an eager friendly pup so keeping a watchful eye out for larger potentially intimidating dogs was important.
I live in a small flat so I am just offering a dog walking service. I live in Roehampton SW15 5DU, only 10 mins walk from Richmond Park - a fantastic spot for dog walking. I'm also not very far from Putney Heath.
I have a flexible work routine so often have availability during the week.
I always feel like I connect naturally with dogs. Happy to meet first to ensure that any nervous dog moves to a relaxed state. Happy to collect and drop off and take last minute requests when I'm about. I'm quite active and fit myself so larger dogs should be no problem!
