About Ivy

Hi, I'm Ivy, a 27 year old freelance filmmaker. I've lived half my life in America, half in England (mostly in Oxford) and moved to London last year. The area I currently live in, West Norwood, is very pet friendly. The surrounding streets are all very quiet and residential, while Norwood Park, Streatham Common and Streatham park are all within easy walking distance.

I have always been a great animal lover! Growing up, my family pet was an adorable Norfolk Terrier called Cricket. Since being out on my own, I've always sought out living situations which involved looking after animals. When I lived in Washington, DC, for example, my housemate had a (highly energetic!) one year old pitbull mix that I often walked, fed and generally took care of.

Likewise, in Valencia, Spain, I was partially resonsible for looking after my landlord's dog, cat and rescue kitten. And finally, last year in Oxford, the owners of the house had a lovely old mutt called Bobby. Again, my responsibilities as a tenant included walking, feeding and general dogsitting. I have also dogsat many times for friends while they were on holiday and have experience administering oral medications.

As a freelance writer and filmmaker, I work mainly from home and so have very flexible hours. I offer walking services as well as overnight stays and am happy to house the dogs at mine (where I have a medium sized, well-fenced garden) or go to yours. I am happy to discuss the lengths of walks and overnights and with you and am also happy to meet up beforehand if you'd like to get to know me a little first :)

I look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Ivy has done a wonderful job both walking and dogsitting our staffie, Silas, recently. She has experience with of all kinds of dogs, and was very understanding of our fella's foibles. Her communication is great, she's punctual, and treated our flat with the utmost respect while we were away - I'd recommend her unreservedly!
