About Felipe

Hi there! I am Felipe, a Biologist, nature lover, an active guy and, as you might have guessed (or not), a dog lover! As you can see in the pictures, doesn't really matter the weather I will be there for your best buddy, snow, rain, sunshine and we will sure have fun.
I have been looking after dogs since I remember whether in UK, Finland (pictures) or Brazil. The first breed I ever took care of was Siberian Husky, actually two of them. Had so much fun with those energetic and lively dogs that I never stopped. Labradors, Cocker Spaniels are some of the breeds I looked after, I own a mix breed poodle that I miss so much back in Brazil and is part of the reason I am doing this, I miss having that buddy and will be happy to be that buddy for your dog.

I live in the Kennet Island with my gf who owns two Labradors in Finland. They actually compete over there and one just made it to the major hunting league this year! Hurray! In my current flat, I have no garden so unfortunately I will not be able to keep your dog for long periods of time, hence I am available only for walks. In my flat you will find sports gear, a couch balls and balls...if you have an energetic dog I can guarantee he will be happy to walk, jog and play with me. If not, I am empathetic and will find something we can do together - cuddling, couch and a nap is good too! Hence in a day, outdoor activity (the park, forest,etc), meet other dogs, return home and relax in the flat.

In brief, any type of dog and breed is welcome. Since I've just finished my MSc in Edinburgh and relocated to Reading, I have some 'free time' (aka job hunting), thus have extra free time at home that I would love to spend with your buddy. I have a car and might be able to pick you up. Just drop me a line and we can have a chat about that. I am available during weekdays, and would love to hear from you. The most important thing is that your buddy enjoys my company as much as I will.

Any questions just ask! Catch you later!

    I couldn't have asked for more! Yuki was so well looked after. I received pictures of her playing and when outside with another dog. Felipe and Sara know how to handle a dog and I could rest assured Yuki was treated with love and care. Highly recommended!!

    Felipe was fantastic with my dog over the 2 weeks he looked after him. He was great when they first met and made him feel really at home in the flat, and my dog took to him very quickly (which is not always the case with new people!). At the end of each day I always picked up a tired and happy dog who had been well exercised and looked after, which was fantastic. Felipe seemed to have a great natural rapport with dogs and I would definitely recommend him as a dog sitter.
