About Carl

Hello my name is Carl, I have been dog sitting for over 14 years. I work with this and 3 other dog sitting sites. I live alone in a 2bedroomed house with an enclosed large yard , so space and attention I have lots of. I live 1 minutes away from redcar beach and have several leads up to 20m long for walks and exploring the sand dunes I only work for one owner at a time but can manage 2 dogs or more if needed. I can give medication, help with training, stick to a weight loss menu, get your dog fit OR I can give your pet lots of cuddles and spoil it. I get on well with all breeds of dogs I seem to connect with them and in general they settle in really quickly and are well behaved even the dogs with issues.
The dogs I care for all seem to enjoy the extra effort I make for them and the owners often comment that there pet doesn't seem to want to leave too much, although always excited to be reunited.
I understand that your pet is part of your family otherwise you wouldnt be looking for the best care for her/him.
i will CARE for your pet and go the extra mile to keep it happy.
I live alone and have no pet of my own The dog has the run of the house and yard except my bedroom.

Lots of walks . 1st in the morning and then before it's dark . In between it tends to be whenever I go out or when the dog tells me.i dont go out to work or out drinking so he/she wont be lonely . its been mentioned by a few owners who have stressed out dogs
that staying here with the beach walks peace and quiet and constant companionship is a tonic for the dog they return happy and recharged .could be its that i enjoy what i do and connect easily with dogs . i do have about 8 regulars who stay 3 or 4 times a year im free every school break and dont go out weekends ..its lovely when we reunite .. if its the first time your leaving your pet especialy for a long break i would recomend booking a 1 night stay to be sure it settles and that the sitter and property are suitable for your pets needs

    Carl is a great dog sitter, no doubt about it, Carl has looked after Jess for long holidays on numerous occasions, he treats jess with the utmost care at all times and gives her all the attention she needs, she has had some great times and adventures with Carl and has thoroughly enjoyed each stay , thanks carl i have no hesitation in recommending you

    I arranged a booking for my dog to be taken for a walk and a booking was made after for a 2 week stay when we were due to go on holiday . I received a message after a few days to say that he was cancelling the booking due to my dog being too much to handle. I am very disappointed by this and did advise that my dog could be a lot to handle but thought due to his experience he would be ok as my dog is only a Staffordshire bull terrier . Unfortunately now I am having to look for alternative boardings.
