About Lydia

Having my own dog I know how difficult it can be to organise doggy care and trust someone with your beloved one, so I am happy to talk through detailed instructions and any special requirements for each individual dog.

I've been a dog person from the very beginning. I grew up with a chihuahua and later on frequently looked after the dog of my aunt - a hyper-active beagle.

My super-friendly, young dog loves company and has a high energy level, therefore I normally walk him around 3 hours per day. You can be assured that your dog gets lots of fun in a nearby fenced park and many other local green areas like Norwood Park or Streatham Common Park.

I live in a large studio apartment with direct access to a little, private, fenced garden. When looking after your pet I am happy to keep you updated about our activities, providing you with pictures and locations. I can also take care of special requests like food requirements and anything that is needed! I feel confident dealing with little behavioural issues of dogs, but please do let me know in your request if your dog has issues with being around other dogs.

I have experience with puppies and puppy training and enjoy keeping dogs active and mentally stimulated. If requested, I am happy to keep up your puppy/dog training during my dog sitting.

Dogs are my special passion, but I love all sorts of animals and had many different kind of pets in my life (dogs, rabbits, hamster, fish, ants, turtles... Apart from my Australian Labradoodle I also keep a little ants formicarium in my flat. I love horses and do activities such as horseback riding too.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please note that my home visits and walks are by default at least 1h long and I am happy to adapt to your requirements as I am generous with my time. However, I do not own a car, therefore I might have to adapt the price if public transport is required for visiting or dropping of pets. Please do not hesitate to express concerns and wishes, as I am more than happy to adapt my visiting times to make your dog's experience the best possible.

I am sorry to say that I can NOT look after cats due to allergic reactions.

I am an architecture student, active person and animal fanatic. My partner is an animal lover too - any dog that stays with us would get lots of attention and action in the park! Our young dog Tachi, who loves to have company, has a high energy level and we normally walk him around 4 hours a day in summertime.
