My names Kristen, I'm 28 and am a research assistant in a bank. I’m from Australia and have always had a dog growing up, who are a part of the family. I've always been dog obsessed, often detouring and crossing the road to go pat a cute dog haha. Whilst studying at uni I started a pet walking/ boarding business part time for a few years and I just loved it! It gave me plenty of experience with all different breeds of dogs (big and small) and met some really great personalities. It also taught me how to deal with pets which fret for their owners when they first leave, which I found was always a big concern.
I moved to London 5 years ago where I met the lovely Dan. He’s a black cab driver, who grew up in East London. Dan also grew up with dogs in his family and is obsessed with his sisters dog Reggie, who’s a French bulldog. We are lucky enough to look after him from time to time
Our home has a lovely spacious lawn for the dogs to run around during their stay. It has a secure fence all the way around with the only access out, is through the front door. We also have a big dog friendly park up the road which we would take your dogs for regular walks each day. I always discuss with the owners how many walks your dog requires and for how long, but genuinely about 45mins twice daily. If I dog comes to stay during the week, I work during the day and dan works in the evenings, thus the dog will only be left by themselves in the house for approximately 2-3 hours max.
On weekends I will be with the dog the whole time.
At the moment we currently just look after our friends and families pets when they go on holidays etc. We enjoy having a dog in the house as we have no pets of our own currently.
We are such big dog people, and your pet will be loved and cared for whilst in our care. Happy to send pictures of your happy pets whilst you’re away as well :)
