About Alex

About me 
I have good experience of petsitting in Brighton- it's the best job in the world! I love going for walks, but going without a dog feels a bit strange. 

I adore canine company, and understand that dogs respond to calm, confidence and positivity. Your fur baby is safe with me: I’ll talk to them, play with them and always be clued-in to their needs and behaviour. 

As well as extensive pet care experience, I've done over a year's volunteering with dogs. This includes a shelter environment, where many had behavioural problems and needed special care. I have also been a volunteer at a dog hotel, where I helped to look after (and spoil!) around thirty guests. I also have good experience of walking reactive dogs. 

If I'm free, I'm happy to help at short notice.

As well as overnight sits I can offer walking, drop in visits or sitting around my part time job.

What we'll do 
If your dog is nervous, I can distract them with some games, or simply be a reassuring presence that they can come to when they feel like it. (I once looked after a dog who was terrified of thunder, and during a loud storm I found that singing Johnny Cash calmed her right down.)

If possible, we'll go on a nice long walk! Basically, I'll listen to your dog's needs- give them space if they like, provide cuddles, play games or do some training to engage them.

Let me know about your dog's needs and behaviour: for example, what commands do they respond to? Is there anything they are wary or afraid of? If I'm house sitting, where are their favourite places in the home? Do they have a favourite toy?
