About Alec

Hi I'm Alec,

I was, once upon a time, a husky safari guide in wilderness of Finnish Lapland. But these days I'm an entrepreneur working on building net zero energy communities. Working from home means I have the freedom and opportunity to look after and care for other peoples fury friends.

I grew up with dogs and worked with huskies for 8 years. I also had the pleasure of working with Seeing Eye Dogs Australia and I've been walking, dog sitting and caring for many pets in Berlin for the last year.

I understand how important it is to maintain consistency in caring for your pets. That is why I'll go to extra lengths to understand how you engage with your pets so I can match that as closely as possible. But most of all I understand how important it is to have fun with your fury friends.

Here's a little more info about me and my pets:

I grew up in a small country town in England with two beautiful collies, Frankie and Pepsi. We had a forest near my home and we would spend hours running, hiding and making together. When I was 19 I had the opportunity to work with sled dogs in Finnish Lapland. I fell in love with the dogs and wilderness of the Finnish Arctic.

After 8 seasons in Finnish Lapland I moved to Melbourne, Australia in search of a different kind of wilderness (and some sun). After 9 years in Melbourne my girlfriend and I decided to move to Berlin and we have now moved to London so I can be closer to the rest of the team at my startup.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions.

Alec is a wonderful sitter. He's experienced, reliable, and truly loves animals. He thought through all of the details, and I was so happy to find someone so professional. I would absolutely recommend him.

Alec was really helpful, as this was my first time using the app. My dog liked him immediately when they met :)

I would definitely recommend Alec!
