About Alicia

Hi, I'm Alicia, I got my first dog, Bear in February 2022 and it is safe to say that I am now totally obsessed with dogs! I have experience in caring for my own dog by: taking Bear for lots of long fun walks over the fields; completing beginner and level 1 training classes with him; going to lots of dog shows and as he is a full coat (long haired) Shih Tzu, he requires a lot of grooming maintenance to keep him looking clean and tidy - I am confident in giving your dogs the same level of care and love as my own. Furthermore, I have professional experience with other dogs as I shadowed a local dog walker last summer and thoroughly enjoyed meeting and walking all of the cute pooches! I am always reading about dogs, including canine nutrition and behaviour with the hope of becoming a clinical animal behaviourist after completing my degree. Dogs are my whole world - Bear has his own doggy wardrobe full of more outfits than I have for myself🤣- and I can't wait to meet all of your lovely doggos and become their new friend! My garden is fully secure, and, with a vast amount of field at the top of my road it is perfect for walking your doggos. I am happy to board both small and medium dogs and small animals (if I don't have any dogs boarding who have a high prey drive and are friendly with small animals), unfortunately I can't board cats, as my dog is not very friendly with cats, but , I am happy to come and sit your cat during drop in visits :) I may be able to provide doggy daycare for larger dogs depending on their energy levels, but, again I am happy to do drop in visits for both large and giant dogs. There are multiple beds dotted around the house and 2 toy boxes full to the brim of toys ready to be played with! I also have several enrichment toys, to keep your dogs stimulated and enriched during their stay!

Alicia is a beautiful caring lady who took amazing care of our dog Poppy. She was walked and cuddled and so well cared for. Bear is also a beautiful friendly dog and he and Poppy will be friends for life. I would recommend Alicia to anyone who wants their fur baby looked after. I will definitely use her again to look after Poppy, thank you Alicia xx

I have had animals my whole life, growing up with cats and then getting my first own pets in 2018 - 2 guinea pigs - who I loved very much but sadly have passed over the rainbow bridge recently. I got my first dog Bear, a Shih Tzu, in February 2022, and I have been absolutely dog mad ever since, I have loved meeting loads of different breeds of dogs at Crufts and at events for my dog accessory business, from Bichons to Tibetan terriers to Golden and Flat coat Retrievers! I have previously looked after many of my neighbours’ cats whilst they’ve been away too, therefore I have experience with a variety of different animals and am happy to cater to your fur babies! I have shadowed a local dog walker so have experience dog walking too.
