About Sophie

Hey!

I'm Sophie & my partner, James & I offer a home from home, dog walking, basic training and exercise for your pups.

We are both dog-obsessed and frequently foster rescue puppies from Romania, it's tough but rewarding. We've also had family dogs from a very young age. This means that we are experienced with a HUGE variety of personalities and are prepared for most situations having helped dogs that have never been socialised before and at the other extreme, friends' soppy pets that have been nothing but. We've signed up to Pawshake as we are having a break from fostering but would love to help you out with your pup as it fits quite nicely into our routine and having had so many foster pups feel fully prepped to help you with yours.

Our home- from -home is equipped with everything that your pup may need during a stay with an endless supply of toys, treats and stimulating games. We have a small fenced-in garden and incredible, dog-friendly neighbours. We both work from home and have flexible routines so are able to walk your dog when your life or work may get in the way and have lots of time to dedicate to pups that need it. We live an active lifestyle so exercising your dog is something we can offer - but equally happy to petsit pups that prefer a snooze on the sofa.

We are lucky to live SECONDS away from very dog-friendly parks such as Haggerston Park, London Fields and Victoria Park. We are able to offer up to an hour walking in the morning before work, 1 hour walking during the day and up to an hour after 5 pm also. Please note that it doesn't have to be a full hour if you have a smaller/ younger/ older dog that doesn't require long walks. We would be able to board up to two dogs at the same time but from the same owner and would never take your dog on at the same time as another but will make sure (if agreed with you) that whilst with us they will get plenty of playtime with local, friendly dogs that we know.

It is just my partner & I at home with no children or pets around. We are happy for dogs to stay up on the sofa and furniture but also have dog blankets/ beanbags and a bed.

We understand what a huge decision it is to leave your dog with a stranger but hope that you get to know us, trust us and we will do all that we can to make you and your dog feel comfortable. We will send photos and updates during your dogs stay and let you know how they're getting on :)

Please do let me know if your pet has any specific needs, behavioural issues or 'quirks' beforehand.
