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.
Lydia from the first communication was very professional and responsive. Due to short notice she was able accomodate me straight away. Kano was happy, settled and i was kept posted. Will definitely be using Lydia again. Thank you
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.
