About Anne

Dogs and cats feel safe with me, and chilled. I'm not overbearing, just attentive to their needs, I love Jackson Galaxy's "My Cat from Hell" and Cesar Millan's "Dog Whisperer", from which I have deepened my understanding of dogs, as well as cats.

I do not have pets of my own at present, as it's just been too heartbreaking for me when they passed, but I really miss our four-legged friends' company, so instead I will help you when you need someone to take care of your friend for a day or longer.

I'm awake quite late and mostly work from home so times are fairly flexible to suit your needs for emergency bookings. I can take care of your cat too, although it is better for cats to stay in their territory, so it's probably only for emergencies.

I have several kinds of blankets available, and a big room at street level where I usually work. Your friend can hang out with me and choose where to have a lie in. The picture shows half the room.

There is a big park close by (big enough that we don't have to hang around other dogs if this is preferable), and a few quiet streets.


Day care is for 9 hours max from around 9am.
Regular early start (before 8:45am) or longer hours up to 11 hours have an additional fee of £5 or more.

Please note: care for puppies and dogs who are not toilet trained outside of their own home will be an additional £5/day - l prefer to know in advance so I can waterproof my place, allow for more walks, and give them more attention. The additional cost goes toward carpet cleaning and waterproofing equipment. I'm happy to participate in any housebreaking training you are doing so my approach is consistent with yours.

I also offer half days (via a custom booking) for up to 3 hours (£10 at the time of writing), and evenings from £16.
Happy to help with any kind of training.

While I generally take less than 3 dogs at a time, your companion needs to be reasonably friendly to other dogs to keep the harmony.

    I hate to leave a bad review but I'm afraid I have to on this occasion. Anne insisted that Frankie wasn't House trained and that I pay more for cleaning costs. Frankie has been fully House trained for over 3 months and never had an accident at any other dog sitters. If she did have multiple accidents like Anne suggested the only explanation is that she wasn't allowed outside enough which raises questions about the experience Frankie had under Anne's care. Overall a thoroughly stressful experience.

    Baxter always has a great time with Anne! He often complains when it's time to go home.

    It's the first time we've used Dogbuddy and would certainly recommend Anne. We left our 2 cavapoos for the weekend and they had a lovely time. Anne kept in touch and sent us a lovely picture of them playing. We felt reassured that Anne took great care of our llittle ones. We will be using her again. Thanks Anne 😀
