About Sophie

I have been dogsitting now since 2019. My background is in social care and childcare, over time I have built up regular clients and I am very happy that this has become my full time job. I have always loved animals, my family always had pets when i was growing up and i would petsit for friends and family when i was younger.

I have completed training in dog grooming and set up a studio at home, so in addition to other services I am able to offer dog grooming also.

Your dog may be a good fit for me if they are of a medium/small size, preferably neutered/spayed and non reactive to noises since it is a busy area and there is construction next to my house. Some of my regular daycares and overnights include frenchies, pugs, boston terriers, schnauzers, chihuahuas, daxes and bulldogs. As I have doggies I care for regularly I am probably not a good option if you dog isn’t good with other dogs. Also I am very busy during summer and it is unlikely I will be able to take any young puppies during this period.

I live next to Kelvingrove park so the park is my back garden! I also like walks down to the river on nice days and sitting in shaded areas when it's very hot. Please let me know your dog's schedule, how good their recall is, how they are off lead and if they pull on the lead.

I will keep communication open with owners and provide updates during your dogs stay. I have social media where I post updates which i can share with you.

Please keep in mind although I live in quite a large spacious flat it is 2 floors up, so if your dog is not confident on stairs then I am most likely not the best fit for you, however if they are small enough I have no problem carrying them up and down the stairs. Also I have a male flatmate so I may not be well suited for you if your dog is very nervous of men.

Rufus & Flame had a lovely afternoon with Sophie, with lots of snuggles, snoozing and walkies. Thanks Sophie!
