Julia, dog sitter in Southampton
About Julia

I moved here from Germany, and as my dog is pretty old, I could not take her and had to leave her with my parents. So: I am asking to look after your dog, because I miss my dog!
I studied Clincial Psychology, and as part of that, I worked as a research assistant in dog studies in Germany before. No, not the scary stuff: we were trying to find out how smart dogs are, for example, if they can follow your gaze in order to find a toy (and every dog got to keep the toy and lots of treats if he attended). I worked as a dog sitter then - often with difficult dogs. I grew up having two sweet dogs, and I do sometimes think that if humans were a bit more like dogs, the world would be a better place. In any case, what you need to know is that I am passionate about dogs and will get lots of love and attention.

I have recently moved from Brighton to Southampton, we live in a spacious one bedroom. It's me and my boyfriend James, who is also experienced with dogs. We will take your dog for nice walks to the common, it's a ten minute walk from our place :)

Due to me now working, the responsibility for the dog is shared between me and my boyfriend, who is a full time student. I will take care of the dog in the morning and evening as well as on weekends and he will take your dog for the afternoon walk. Due to this arrangement I can also accept bookings during the week if discussed, but I prefer weekends.

If you book on Friday and want to drop off your dog before 6pm, it is likely that you will drop him off with my boyfriend.

    Apologies for the late review Julia. Thank you so much Julia and James for taking such good care of our Louis, he thoroughly enjoyed all of the attention, love and care you both gave him whilst we were away.

    Teddy came back from his stay with Julia so exhausted lol he'd played all day and had a lovely time on his walk at the common. Julia updated me with a photo and a message and I cant express how delighted I was with Julia's service and how at ease I was leaving my baby boy with her. Thankyou.
