Dog Lover for Walks and Dog Care

About Barry

I love all dogs and I would love to help others with dog walking and dog care.

I have a Portugese Water Dog puppy myself and I would love to meet new playmates for my Oscar and also to help others walking or taking care of their dogs on weekday evenings or over the weekend for those who need the support every now and then!

I have previously owned a Border Collie for 15 years, so I'm used to long walks and regular dog grooming and care. I also regularly dog sit for family and friends and I am comfortable with all sizes and temperament of dog.

I think I would be very helpful for dog owners as I live near Wimbledon Common and Wimbledon Park where I can exercise dogs easily, I also have a private, secure garden and as I live beside Wimbledon village I am near the vet and pet shop if required! The owner would also be reassured that I have previously owned a border collie for 15 years and so I am comfortable and confident handling a dog in public. I love all breeds of dog and love being around them so I think the dog would really benefit also.

I always send the owner photos and videos of their dog's stay with me, for the owner's peace of mind while they are away and I have had lovely feedback from every owner who has left their dog with me.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or arrange a meeting. Please note that at the moment, due to work commitments, I am only available week day evenings after 7pm and on weekends.

Many thanks,

    Barry is friendly, absolutely reliable and always on the dot. Maximus loved going out with him and Barry was kind enough to accommodate us at the last minute. He was patient as well as kind towards Max and there is absolutely no reason why I can't recommend him. He is super.

    Barry is a fantastic dog sitter! Bartok had such a good day with him and his dog Oscar that he slept the entire evening and night. Thank you so much. Highly recommend!

    Barry was very very kind to take a last min request. My dog loved his dog Oscar and when he came out of dog care Frankie seemed he had a hell of a good day! Thank you for the kindness and really recommend him.
