Jude, dog sitter in Weymouth

Doggy delight in Dorset!


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 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.

    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!

    Jude was so kind as to keep me updated with lovely photos and messages of how Maddie's stay was going. Also she tolerated me frequently texting and asking how Maddie was doing! I'm so pleased with how Maddie was looked after and I would 100% feel happy for Jude to look after her again. I was so apprehensive as this is the first time I had left Maddie with anyone before and Jude completely reassured me and made me comfortable! Maddie has got her issues with being a rescue with dogs and sometimes men, but I felt these were dealt with wonderfully. I would 100% recommend Jude to anyone who wants their doggy to have a fantastic holiday!

    Thank you, Beth. Maddie is such a sweet-natured girl, and a delight to have around. She is very well behaved and very affectionate - needless to say, I'd love to take care of her again!
