About Ben

I'm Ben. I'm 32 and I live with my wife, Tamara (34) in a large two-bed apartment in South Bermondsey. Both of us are former dog owners. I was raised with 5 Dobermans

and

a border collie. My wife also has a great deal of experience with large dogs as well as smaller dogs - she's previously owned a Yorkie, a Dachshund, and two Maltese pups.

I'm a freelance web designer, andIwork from home, so I'm always available in the day - so pet sitting would be a welcome break from building websites all day. We have a beautiful park (Southwark Park) just 5 minutes walk away forwalkiesand big floor to ceiling windows for pups who like to doze in the sun.

My wife is a teacher, which means she gets lots of holidays - we often make the most of that by going away - which is why we made the decision not to have any pets of our own. We've both owned dogs and Chinchillas in the past, as well as a hamster or two and a budgie. We don't currently have any children.

Weekdays/weekends are great. Overnight is fine too. We have wooden floors throughout, so cleanups are easy. Our apartment is in a gated complex and we have a medium size balcony.

I welcome last minute bookings.

Ben and tamara were awesome. I have a very high energy 1 year old golden retriever and they coped with him really well, taking him for extra walks to burn energy and they kept us up to date with loads of pictures. Would highly reccommend.

Ben was great and our dog obviously loved being in Bens' company - (she would have been quite happy to stay when I came to pick her up!)

Great communication and the daily pictures really helped us know she was settled.
