About Alan

I lost my two collies in 2019, just months apart from each other. They both chose me when i went to pick a dog. Both were 14 and 15 years old. I miss them dearly. Since their loss, i have had several things go on in the background and I have since moved to a flat in the Devonport area.

I have a balcony and plenty of green area just a short walk away. Close to the river and a short walk for views of the river and Plymouth Sound, i'm sure your dog/dogs would love my company. Being in a flat, i think it is unfair not only to myself but to have my own dog live here as I never had the time i could devote to another pet up until now. I have had friends come and visit and bring their dogs with them, and it has been a pleasant stay having the company of dogs still in my life since losing my own. I offer day and night care and pet sitting/walking services and can accommodate most of the time. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I will be more than happy to meet you and your dog/dogs so they can choose someone they like who will love them too.

I offer dog walking, pet sitting and house sitting services. If your pet requires feeding or medication, I am able to do this for you (have experience in administering medicines to my dogs in the past).

Dog walks will last a minimum of 30 minutes up to an hour and I can take up to 3 dogs.

I am soon to retire from the Royal Navy after serving 23 years. I am available most of the time and my working hours are flexible as I transition back to civilian life.

I will be able to be at home with the pets if they require supervision, and they will not be left unattended for a prolonged time.

I live in a modern 2 bed apartment, close to several parks ideal for dog walking and exercise. Your pet, if they stay overnight, will sleep in the lounge area of my apartment and the doors will be open except for the bedrooms. I have a balcony that overlooks the street and a secure car park area with some green areas where I am able to allow the pets to go toilet.

I offer pet sitting/house sitting services. I will stay with your pets in your home and follow your instructions for the pets, or they are able to stay in my apartment. The length of stay of the service you get will be as follows:

HOME VISITS: in your own home I can stay between 1-3 hours; in my apartment, they can stay all day until collection. I also offer longer day/night care and holiday sitting services.

DOG WALKS: walks will last from 30 minutes to an hour per day.

I am available most of the day, please call/message to find out if I am able to help you.

Alan was brilliant right from the first message that I sent; he was friendly and responded quickly. My 3 dogs were relaxed in Alan’s company right from the start, even though two of them can be very reactive. Alan sent me pics throughout the week, and all 3 dogs were happy and healthy when I collected them. I reckon they had a great week; thank you so much Alan. Highly recommended.

Our Border Terrier stayed with Alan over the weekend and he must have had fun because he slept all evening after collecting him! Felt very comfortable leaving him with Alan and would absolutely use him again, thanks so much for looking after Otis for us :)
