My name is Irene. I was born in Spain and I have lived in London for the last seven years. I moved here to study Design. Along with Art and Fashion, I enjoy, of course, dogs. I started taking care of dogs in London about two years ago and it's what I love the most!
I've always loved animals in general, especially dogs. My parents and basically my whole family are like that. I spent my childhood in Spain with my dog Nana (giant schnauzer) but unfortunately, she passed away when she was 15 years old. Then Gandy (old English sheepdog) and Pepa (German Shepard) arrived to our lives. I love to spend time with dogs and all sort of animal. I also take care of my friend's English bulldog when she is away. I always treat dogs with love and respect. Also, I will love your dog as it was mine!! I would be really happy if I can spend my time with a lovely dog. I like playing and getting covered in mud, running and jumping and also laying on a couch with one or two or five dogs around me.
I know exactly how hard it is to leave your little or not that little-ones with anyone but you! I adore all dogs with a passion and I care for them with complete dedication. Whether feeding, walking, cleaning, nursing, playing, cuddling or fighting for their rights, I will do it all with a big open heart and a huge smile. Your pooch will be in the safest hands.
I am available to travel across London or welcome your little one to my house in Tufnell park. I share the house with my partner Irmantas, also a big animal lover. We always take care of the doggies together. We have front and back patio and next to our house a park with closed space for the doggies. Please check the pictures on my profile. Hampstead Heath park is 8 min walking from our house so we happily take there for longer walks.
Regarding the sleeping time, We keep the bedroom door always open so they can come with us or stay in other parts of the house. They are allowed to go on the bed or sofa. We have two sofas on the living room and we allow them to be on both.
Normally I walked our furry friends a minimum of three times per day. One long walk in the morning between 7:00 / 9:00 am, lunchtime and then again for a long walk in the afternoon between 6:00 / 7:00 pm. Normally the walks are for at least one hour. Also before going to sleep, I like to walk them quickly to make sure they emptied their bladders for the night.
I am a Fashion Designer and I work from home quite a lot. That allows me to have company at all times!. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions I am happy to chat.
Irene and her partner, Irmantas, were absolutely amazing hosts to my 5 month puppy, Belle! They made my trip so much easier and Belle quite clearly adored them both. I got regular photos and videos, my dog never looked so happy with someone else. They had dog play dates and big park trips planned for Belle’s stay and I could tell she really enjoyed her time with Irene and Irmantas and she sulked for a few days when she came home. I would highly recommend them both as dog sitters and will be asking them to look after Belle again for sure!!
