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 have also just signed up to undertake an animal first aid course.

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.

Due to a change in living arrangements, I am currently unable to offer overnight boarding at my house. I do however have plenty of experience in house sitting if you are happy to have me stay in your own property. 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.

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 🐾

    Couldn’t have picked a better Dogbuddy for Tilly. Ali gave regular updates. I felt bad having to part Ali and Tilly as they were both having such fun!!!

    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.
