About Matthew

I'm a young self-employed male who works from home. I have a very flexible schedule & a ridiculous love for dogs!

Matthew: I had two Jack Russell's for a few years when I lived at home, but sadly they had to stay with my mother when I moved to London.

I live in a very large ground floor flat (1,000sq foot open-plan) with a large, safe & very private, enclosed outdoor space. There are no steps inside or out (great for older dogs!). I always leave the door to the garden wide open so that your furry guest can get some fresh air, roam freely and do their business whenever they want. As I work from home I have plenty of hands-on time although my business has to come first so I will only accept sittings if I am able to manage both at the same time.

I have my own dog, Bunny! A life loving young whippet cross who can be very excitable when he first meets new dogs & people but soon calms down.

I can care for dogs of any age or size.

Saturdays I work at the Portobello road market so often juggling is required over weekends so I can't always accept Saturday bookings but I endeavour to do my best.

I am lucky enough to live in such a large open space, compared to flats and small houses in London. I feel that I can offer your dog a great deal of freedom & comfort.

I am happy to welcome you into my home before you decide whether or not you would like to book, so that you can see if you would like my home to be your dogs home from home.

I offer a 10% discount on bookings of 10 days or more, please mention this in you enquiry and I will make the discount.

Please note that on occasions I may have up to 2 dogs at the same time.

Unless you are a short walk away, pickups & drop offs are not included.

I would love to meet you and your furry friend!

    The best dog sitters ever. Have used them several times since our original booking. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

    Matthew and Kitty did a great job looking after my big rescue dog. George (my dog) has arthritis so sadly can't exercise as he should be doing for his age. This can make him difficult to manage but Matthew and Kitty handled him perfectly. They kept me updated with messages and photos which was really reassuring. George can be quite anxious when I go away but he really settled in to Kitty and Matthew's home. I would definitely use them again.

    Matthew & Kitty looked after Stanley (a small fluffy, rambunctious poodle mash-up) yesterday. We got loads of texts and pics through the day, and he obviously had a blast with their resident whippet. They were just lovely, and have an awesome place! Thanks so much! will definitely use them again ;)
