My name is Mike and I'm a 23 year old student, reading Environmental Science at Northumbria University. I have lived with dogs my entire life and have such a passion for these four legged friends. My natural connection with dogs makes me the perfect companion for your pet; in the past I have even gotten on with dogs that supposedly 'hate everyone' which is always an extremely rewarding experience!
Last year I was working with anti-poaching dogs in South Africa and had first hand experience training, looking after and operating alongside Weimaraner and Belgian Malanoir dogs. A good working dog requires a good handler and there has to be chemistry between both parties in order to be successful. It was in Africa that I was taught the fundamental skills required to become a proficient dog handler; skills which are most definitely transferable to the world of dog sitting.
I am a firm believer in providing dogs with the necessary amount of exercise and attention depending on size, breed, personality and age. I can guarantee that your dogs will be happy and comfortable whist I am walking or minding them and they shall be treated like royalty when under my supervison!
Household details: I live in a safe and clean house which has a decent sized back yard. One perk is that my home is just a stone throw away from Jesmond Dene park which makes for a perfect walking area for your dog (I also enjoy making day trips to Northumberland for walks).
I will be fully capable of performing to very high standards in this role as I have had plenty of experience in this practice over the years. As mentioned earlier, I am so passionate about dogs and any animals that are left in my safekeeping, I will love as if they were my own!
