About Sophia

Hi all! I'm Sophia, 33 and have called Bristol my home since the end of 2020. 

After graduating from a Bachelor of Psychology in Berlin I am now working as a UX Designer. From a studio space I'm renting or from home - this means that when I look after a dog in the week they'll need to be used to me working with a big walk over lunch and little play breaks throughout the day. The weekend however is for adventures 🐶 👧 🌳 

I've been surrounded by animals all my life, all starting with my biggest love Emilio (a rabbit) who turned 12 years old; cats, dogs... and I used to work as a horse riding instructor at London's Hyde Park Stable and at Sydney's Centennial Park Stables. 

While living in London I regularly looked after english pointer puppy Wallace and helped with his training and getting him used to everything a young dog needs to know in the big city. I found and adopted a very poorly cat, took care of him and named him Rufus. He’s still happy as ever in the super loving long term home I found for him when I left London.

The regular stays at farms throughout my childhood have definitely shaped me too - so if anyone has cows in need of cuddles or looking after please also get in touch, I’d love to be their friend :)

P.S i have recently moved in with my partner, who is brilliant with animals (he is a wildlife cameraman) and now live in Bedminster. We have a garden and are close to Victoria Park 🪴 

Also: I only ever look after one dog at a time!

Sophia responded to every message promptly. She was reassuring and understanding throughout the booking process and when she had my dog.

I had no doubt that she took the utmost care of my dog Asha and would have no hesitation booking her again.

Sophia was brilliant with our nervous rescue girlie! She took time to meet with us beforehand to make sure our dog was familiar with her and her flat before coming to stay; Sophia really listened to myself, and observed my dog closely. This all helped greatly towards my dog having a wonderful holiday with Sophia, and probably more fun than we had on our holiday! Wouldn’t hesitate to book my girl in with Sophia again 😊
