About Alexia

Hello there, my name is Lex; I am an energetic and enthusiastic person with a big passion for dogs. I have lots of experience with dogs including working and volunteering at rescue and boarding kennels. I also hold a diploma in pet psychology. I have grown up with dogs, cats and small animals and looked after many friends pets as well as my own over the years (from collies and greyhounds to horses, kittens, rats and exotics!)

I really enjoy getting to know animals and understand the importance of exercise, love, care, fun and lots of attention. I would never take on two pets for walks at the same time that didn't get on, and never without the permission of the owner. I am a keen walker, and with my car I am happy to take dogs a little further to explore nearby woods and coast.

Over the last two years I have been offering home boarding services in my previous home, however I have just moved over to a beautiful spot just south of Snowdonia national park. Due to the nature of my new home (particularly it's certain inhabitants - chickens, ducks, cats) I regret that I now can't provide holiday dog boarding. I can however, offer pet-care in your home (for sleepovers and longer holidays) and walking.

I work from home in the day as an illustrator, (welcoming breaks to walk dogs!) so I am flexible with timing and I am available to look after pets in their own home - which is also often less stressful for the animal.

If you would like to have a chat or arrange a booking please get in touch! Although I am based in Mid-West Wales, I am able to travel further for longer bookings.

    Leo had a great time with Lex - she's confident, calm and enthusiastic and I have total confidence that she'll take good care of him.

    Woody came home shattered after a week with Lex which, as a sheepdog, shows plenty of good walks were had. I was impressed with Lex's enthusiasm for dogs and her practical nature which is obviously what an owner is looking for when leaving one of their most treasured loves behind. I felt confident that his medication would be administered and that he was in good hands. Thanks Lex.. we will no doubt be seeing you again. Gill and Woody

    Monty has stayed with Alexia for the weekend. He can't wait for the door to open when we arrive and does not give me a backward glance! He is very happy and very tired when I collect him so I know that he enjoys his stay and all the lovely walks. I can recommend her.
