About Sofia

I've been living my whole life surrounded by dogs and other pets. Neighbours, friends and family have relied on me to walk, feed and cuddle their pets. Back home in Italy my family and I have a dog called Denver. I miss not being able to play with him daily and walk him out. Being a pet sitter helps me to feel less nostalgic and keeps me motivated throughout the day! 😊

I love spending time outdoor, walking with the dogs and playing in safe areas. Around Leeds there are several parks that your dog and I can explore!! Usually I walk dogs between 2 and 4 times per day (depending on the dog's needs), for no less than 30 minutes a walk. 🌲🐾

I recently graduate from the University of Leeds, so my schedule is pretty flexible at the moment. Pets won't be left alone, as it's my responsibility to look after them and make sure their owner is happy with my service. I'm available mostly every day as I work from home. Therefore, I can easily fit the pet care into my daily/weekly routine, and supervise guest pets 24/7.

I live in a spacious house in Pudsey with my boyfriend, who also loves animals as much as I do and he's more than happy to help me looking after your pet. Guest pets are allowed to sleep mostly everywhere they like, but preferably not on sofas and bed. I also have a little pet at home, a Leopard gecko called Yoko. She's absolutely gorgeous! 🦎

Your pet deserves the best, and I won't disappoint you. I always care about dogs behaviour and any changes due to the need of food, play, or approaches with other dogs. Your pet will be in safe hands, both in its house and mine, and during outdoor walks. 🐶

Let me know if your pet needs special attentions, or any behaviour I should be aware of. Like special food requirements, or any food allergies it has; any activity it must do in a day, or if it doesn't get along with other pets.

I accept all types of breeding. Please note that dogs 🐶, cats 🐱 and rabbits 🐰 must be fully vaccinated before I care for them in my home. I'm able to care for single pets or multiple pets, depending on your needs, but pets from different households will never mix.

Sofia was great at house sitting our dog. She was more than happy to meet us beforehand and made sure everyone was comfortable. She did an excellent job of taking care of him and keeping us updated throughout the night. She clearly has a lot of love and affection for dogs. Highly recommend her and would book again.

I owned a dog that was rescued when he was only 1 y/o. I had to learn how to respect his spaces and how to earn his trust. After a year I was able to give him some cuddles and to feed him straight from my hand. It has been a journey and I feel like I learned a lot with him. I would love to help other dogs going through a similar experience.
