About Jude

I have been lucky enough to have lived with dogs for the last 26 years, and I love being in their company. My gorgeous girl Immie had to say goodbye in January this year at the age of 16, and words cannot describe how much I miss her. I would absolutely love to take care of your beloved dog, for however long is needed, and give him or her all the love and care I can. Immie was my constant companion and best friend, and went everywhere with me. As I own my own company (publishing animal books), she came to work with me every day; before Immie, my two Westies - Hubble and Hattie - did the same. Our office is completely dog-friendly (we have another regular doggie member of staff; Maggie, who comes in every day), and ideally situated for lovely walks in open countryside. It's also safe, away from roads and traffic, in a quiet area of Poundbury, in Dorchester. Our offices are spacious and airy, and all of our staff love animals. Given the nature of the books we publish, many of our authors have animal companions, and usually bring their canine friends with them when they visit. Journeys to and from work provide an opportunity for walks in different locations. All transportation is carried out with the use of a dog seatbelt. I have a basic disclosure certificate (formerly CRB check).

At weekends I'm home, and enjoy spending time in the garden. There's also time for longer walks, if these are what's needed, and days out in my camper van to the beach or local woods. Of one thing you can be sure: wherever I am, your dog will be with me.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Jude. Bronte has been well looked after on her sleep over. Thank you.

    We couldn't have wished for a better person to look after Bronte whilst we were working. Jude is very knowledgeable and any apprehension we had about leaving Bronte with someone new quickly went away. Bronte is having a sleep over with Jude on Friday and we will enjoy an evening out without having to worry about our beloved Bronte. Thank you.

    Thank you, Jenny. I enjoyed my time with Bronte so much - she really is a delight and so affectionate! She settled very well, both in my office (on a dog bed on the window ledge!) and at my home, and was happy to snuggle next to me on the settee. Everyone who met Bronte was smitten - including me!

    Jude & Max hit it off the first time they met making me feel like I can now relax when I go on holiday knowing he is well cared for. I had regular updates, lovely messages & pictures of him making himself at home which was very reassuring. I would highly recommend Jude as she is a lovely caring person who enjoys looking after our precious dog/s. Thank you so much & he will be coming back soon to see you.

    Thank you, Karen. Your gorgeous Max is such a sweet little gent - bright, gentle, and so affectionate - he seems to love everybody! In addiiton, Max is so well-mannered, courteous and, well, simply a delight to have around! He's a little dog with a big, big heart: already looking forward to taking care of him again in a couple of weeks!
