About Alexandra

I’m an all-round animal lover and my family has owned large dogs all my life. I will treat your doggie (or doggies) and other pets as my own with lots of love, cuddles, and fun walks.

I’m caring and attentive, but am also calm and confident upholding whatever rules you may have in place, as I understand that consistency is very important for dogs.

When it comes to overnight care, I have a slight preference for house sits, especially where the dog is prone to barking. I also find the dog (or dogs) settle so much more quickly than getting a new carer and new environment all at once.

I’m a journalist by trade and usually work from home with relatively flexible hours during the week, so am available most weekdays as well as weekends.

Please message me if you have further questions. I'm happy to arrange a meet and greet to dicsuss things further.

When booking your pets, it is helpful for me to have an overview of the following: Any triggers for him/her (i.e. doesn't like people wearing hats). How the dog interacts with other dogs. Is s/he toilet trained? Does s/he have any allergies? What rules do you have in place? (Especially whether they are allowed on the bed/couch). Any health problems or medications?

House Sitting
Kate, 2020-08-18

Alexandra was lovely and easy to deal with start to finish. Lots of communication and was easy going even though our washing machine broke down half way through us being away. 🙈 Would definitely book her again to pet sit without hesitation.

House Sitting

Alex was really helpful and responded quickly and professionally in a very short notice when we needed someone for a home sitting. She kept us regularly up to date including some very nice pictures. We find the house in perfect condition and by and large the pets were as happy and satisfied as when we left. If we need a home sitting again, we will definitely ask her first.
