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.

    Thanks Dorothy! Only my second time using DogBuddy but I’ve again been so lucky. Dorothy was not only polite and personable but she clearly is a dog lover. Arnie was well loved, cared for and would clearly be happy going back to stay again..

    Dorothy was brilliant! Great communication throughout and especially in advance which was very reassuring as this was our first booking through the app. Mojo got lots of outdoor action despite the lousy weather and all the cuddles he needed to adjust to this new experience for him too. Highly recommended and we hope we can book with Dorothy again next time we are in the area. Thank you so much!

    Mojo was a delight to have! Such an affectionate boy! I’d love to have him over again whenever you need. Glad you had a good visit!
