About Roberta

“The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.”

Hi :)
I'm Roberta, animal lover, yoga teacher and dog trainer.
I was born in a family who loves animals and since I was a little girl I was around dogs, rabbits, birds and spending most of my days interacting with them.
I've started volunteering in a kennel at the beginning of my teen age and have had my first sitting jobs a few years afer that, I've worked in farms and animals sanctuaries in Australia and with street dogs in Bali and a year after having came back to Europe I've started to study canine behaviour, psychology and education, completing the first level course of dog trainer following which is called "the gentle method", which is a patient way of teaching/learning based on mutal trust and gentle techniques.

During the days your dogs will be with me, they will hardly be alone and they will receive special cares depending on their needs.
Dogs love to be stimulated and everything will be a game, a lot of running and playing and even more cuddles. We'll get tired at the park and enjoy a nice movie or book in the evening. My job is to make them feel at home and in holidays at the same time and always, always loved!
It's truly amazing how humans and animals can learn from each other.
Pet-sitting is exactly like baby-sitting, and animals and exactly like children - just even better.

I live with my fiance in a very quiet 2 bed flat located in a one-way road far from the high street traffic, but close to some parks as Finsbury Park, Chestnut Park and the beautiful Woodberry Wetlands which is easily reachable walking through canal paths safe from cars.

Thank you for your attention.

Warm regards,

Roberta

    Roberta was really helpful, friendly and reassuring about taking our sweet but stubborn terrier puppy for a weekend. She gave him lots of walks and attention and kept us posted with regular updates. Hopefully he will be back!
