About Dorothy

Hi! You may recognise me from bothering you in the street to pet your pup.

I am a dog obsessed graduate having recently studied American literature and culture. I love all kinds of puppers, my dream day would be one spent with a house full of dogs.
I am loving, responsible and have four years experience professionally pet sitting as well as a lifetime of personal experience. I have cared for large dogs, tiny dogs and everything in between. I have experience with all kinds of rescue dogs with a variety of behavioural issues.

Me and my partner love spending time outside and live near a variety of lovely places for dogs to roam as well as an area of outstanding natural beauty! We are active, love to run but also know how to take it easy with a cuddle or two!
I have grown up around countless different kinds of animals and I feel I have a certain kinship with them.

My ambition in life is to care for dogs as they make me happier than anything else! I am a patient but vigilant pet sitter and my love of dogs is immeasurable.

    Chip's the cutest grumpkin we've ever had the pleasure of hosting! It was so lovely having him to stay, hope to see you all again in the future!

    Dorothy is just a little star!!!! My Louie had a lovely 5 night stay with Dorothy and kept us sane by sending us pictures and videos of him playing and out on walks, honestly could not recommend a better dog sitter! She was great with my Lou, first point of call for any stays in the future, thankyou both so much!!!!

    Thank you so much!! We loved having Lou to stay, he's such a lovely fluff and we can tell he's well loved at home! Can't wait to see his little underbite again!
