My name is Aleksandra, I'm a 30-year old freelance Project Manager and a linguist and a self- declared canintrovert :)
I am an all animal lover and a vegan which says it all really. I have started volunteering at Bryson’s dog shelter recently and walked some of their dogs which has been incredible so far and I would love to be able to look after more animals full time.
I have grown up with various dog breeds- daschund, rottweiler, pitbull, French bulldog and most recently- a notoriously sassy shiba inu.
I love all dogs- big or small, loud or quiet, lap dogs or more independent pooches. I love to get outside and go for walks, runs and hikes so you can be sure your pooch will get plenty of exercise with me!
I’m a huge fan of reward training and I believe this is by far the only method I would ever use to train a dog so if you’re in process of training, I will be glad to help out.
My schedule is pretty flexible at the moment so I am available for dog sitting, doggy daycare and looking after your pooch while you’re at work or on holiday. You can be sure your pooch and I will have a great time :)
I don't offer dog walking in itself as I don't have a car.
I have been looking after various breeds for about a year now: German shepherd, retriever/labrador, lurcher, border Collie, long-bearded Collie and more, some of my clients have become my regulars.
I am based in South Shields.
I normally offer 3 walks a day, 2 shorter ones of about 15 minutes and a longer walk, depending on the pooch, from 30 minutes to 1,5hs if your dog likes a longer walk.
I am a freelance linguist working from home so you can be sure that I will dedicate all of my time to your pet and they'll be looked after very well. My availability is reflected in the calendar but I usually take longer and shorter bookings if I'm available in the requested period.
There are no other pets living in my house and I share the flat with my boyfriend. In terms of sleeping arrangements, I'm happy to stick to your usual routine (if the dog is allowed on the couch in your house, it will be in mine, if your pet isn't allowed, I'll follow the same rules). Usually pooches sleep in the living room when they stay with me. I'm happy to look after your pet at your house as well, if that's what you prefer.
I have a fully fenced small, concrete area at the back, with a securely locked gate.
I have included some photos of my flat.
I look forward to meeting your pooch :)
Aleksandra is a great sitter. She came and met the dogs twice before she came to look after them. She sent me some photos and a video while I was away. I would highly recommend Aleksandra.
A really caring person
