About Dorothy

I am a dog obsessed student in my final year at university studying American literature and culture. I love all kinds of puppers, my dream day would be one spent with a house full of dogs. I am loving, responsible and have four years experience professionally pet sitting as well as a lifetime of personal experience. I have cared for large dogs, small dogs and everything in between. I have experience with all kinds of rescue dogs with a variety of behavioural issues. I am focusing on my studies at the moment but cherish time with pets, not only do I find they provide buckets of happiness and a certain degree of calm for me, but I am an avid runner and relish the company on my daily jogs. I have grown up around countless different kinds of animals and I feel I have a certain kinship with them. I am a patient but vigilant pet sitter and my love of dogs is immeasurable.

    Our second visit to Dorothy and the dogs were so excited when they saw her, definitely a good sign of a doggy person! Amber and Biscuit came back very tired and content. Highly recommended.
