About Elsa

I am a 31-year-old dog walker, originally from France. I have worked as a full-time dog walker for a year now, and it is the best job I have ever had! Being around dogs all day and making sure they are having a great time brings me so much joy and contentment. I do individual walks exclusively, so 'my' dogs get me all to themselves. I find that it is much less stressful for the dog to be walked on their own, and we are able to develop a close bond, which makes the walks even more enjoyable for both of us.

From 30-minute toilet walks to 90 or 120-minute outings, I cater to the owner's and the dog's needs. We spend time in the Royal Parks, where the dog can socialise with others, have a game of fetch or simply a good snifferoo!

Caring for dogs is a true passion, and it comes so naturally to me, I find it hard to believe I ever did anything else. I am always keen to develop my skills and career and have just completed a dog training course, so that I can understand them even better.

I call myself "Nanny Elsa" with all the dogs (really) I look after and this is what my service is: love, care and attention as if I was with my own dog. And also a lot of fun! Nanny Elsa isn't afraid to get muddy and sweaty, although most of the time it is unintentional..

Simply, I am a dog person in the purest sense of the term.

As I mentioned above, my experience of looking after pets comes mostly from my own personal experience. When I was little, we had a Beauceron, then a Tibettan Mastiff and now a Labrador so I am used to big dogs and our dog Rocky is a big boy too! I did some pet sitting one summer when I was a teenager. I looked after black poodle Hermes at my home for two weeks and after a cat called Hibou, also for two weeks. Both owners and pets were very happy!

As I mentioned above, I am a photographer so that is a little extra something that I can bring to my services. If you would like portraits of your pets, I will be more than happy to snap a few shots and email them to you at the end of the day!
