About Ali

Hello hello!

I'm Ali. I’m one of those people who loses the thread of conversation when a dog walks by. I just thoroughly adore their company and will go to great lengths to pet a passing pooch! (You might even go as far as to say I prefer them to humans..!)

I grew up around many beloved animals and started dog-sitting/walking in 2011. I have become so passionate about pups that I recently completed an accredited course in dog behaviour & training and am considering making the vocation my full-time job.

I’m never more content than when in the great outdoors and with a happy hound beside you, life feels pretty sweet! If your dog has the stamina, I’ll happily walk for miles. Equally so, I can provide short home visits to offer belly rubs, a little playtime and a stretch of the legs.

My landlord has just got a puppy of his own (gahhh! 💕) so unfortunately I am currently unable to offer overnight boarding at my house. I do however have plenty of experience in house sitting and naturally it’s beneficial for a pup to remain in his usual environment anyway whilst his hoomans are away.

Until I have plenty of time for a four-legged friend of my very own, I shall continue to look after doggies whenever I can. I am equipped with organic treats, balls, blankets, towels, etc and am respectful of any training/rules you have in place with your dog. I am a calm, reliable person and promise to look after your best friend like he/she were my very own.

My other big love in life is wine, and I am keen to start organising combined dog walks and wine tastings. Win win! (Or should I say wine wine!) Do shout if this is of interest.

Don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have or to request a meet & greet before confirming any bookings.


Best wishes & woofs,

Ali 🐾

    As always, Ali is fabulous. Lots of cheerful updates and very happy (tired) dogs dropped off on Sunday. Thanks for the sleepover, Ali!

    Ali was lovely- even though Flynn 's stay was shorter than expected due to changes to our plans, she kept us informed with texts & sent several pictures. We would definitely use her again.
