About Sarah

Hi, I'm Sarah. I absolutely love animals. I had a dear chihuahua, named Cosmo, for many years - he lived to age 17. I still miss him. I think my love of animals - and dogs especially, stems from walking my tennis coach's dog, Alien, (half greyhound/half pitbull), many years ago as we formed a very close bond. We were inseparable and she would regularly stay over in my childhood home.

My family and I (my husband and two little girls age 5 and 4) are based in South London. We live in a house with a garden. We live on a relatively quiet road. Nearby are 2 beautiful parks (one with large fields, the other with woods and fun pathways to explore) that are great for dog walking. We have a pet tortoise (age 33) which I've kept all her life since I was a child. She hibernates in the winter months in our shed in the garden.

I love to pet sit and share my love of animals with my young daughters. They also love animals. My youngest daughter, Bella, is obsessed with dogs.

Recently we looked after my friend's two rabbits. It was a lot of fun and the girls took great pride in feeding them and cleaning out their space.

Regarding the services I offer - While looking boarding your dog, I can walk your dog up to 3 times per day in the nearby parks. As you see from the photos, the garden is a decent size for your dog to run out in easily for some fresh air. I have included photos of our two reception rooms where your pet would be based, mostly in the larger back room which has nice large doors/windows plus x4 sky windows so plenty of natural light. Plenty of space for your pet's bed in the room too so they can have their familiar space setup here.

I'm always very careful to follow instructions and I take pride in looking after animals.

Please note as I have my two children, we do require that your pet be friendly towards kids:)

I hope you will consider us as a friendly and reliable pet sitter for your beloved pet. We are a trustworthy and loving family.

Cannot recommend Sarah, Paul and their two girls high enough. It gives us such peace of mind that our babies are looked after like part of the family. They are totally spoilt and loved. Excellent dog sitters.

Sarah was a star! Our dog was well looked after. She was willing to walk him several times a day; he's a lively border collie. We were given regular updates and photos. Would definitely use her services again. Thank you Sarah for letting us go on holiday with peace of mind that our fur baby was holidaying too!

Specific Skills

I speak English & Spanish
+20 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
I have some limited experience with a dog that had behavioural problems. In addition to having my tortoise for 33 years, and my dog for 17 years, I am experienced in looking after animals that are not my own: I have looked after several dogs over the years and looked after my friend’s rabbits who stayed with us for 10 days. She was very pleased and wants me to have them again. Experienced in taking animals to the Vets. Please note my Spanish is basic.
