We are a family of dog lovers who would love to have more dogs in our life. As a long-time dog owner in London, I have always struggled to find loving, friendly people who understand dogs to look after my own dog when we have to be away - without breaking the bank. I really don’t think it should be so hard, or expensive, to have good care for your dog when you’re away.
Growing up, my family had both purebred and mixed-breed rescue dogs. I learned from my Mother (a veterinary student) a love for all animals, but particularly dogs. She taught me how to care for animals, and I even learned a bit of dog training along the way. I taught my own dog how to sit-stay, come, heel, and - less successfully - not to jump on visitors!
Currently, we have had our own dog, a neutered male whippet cross, for 13 years now. As you can see from the photos, he is living his best life! He is very friendly and loves playing with other dogs in the park. He has had friends to stay before and gets on well with others. But obviously, it would be good to meet prospective doggie visitors in advance of any booking to make sure the dogs are a good match.
We have quite a large garden where the dogs can run around, and we regularly go for walks on the Heath and at our nearby parks, Child’s Hill and Golders Hill. We love getting outdoors!
I have a DBS check, and can provide references. I am home every day, evenings and weekends. So our dog gets lots of attention and company, and so would yours!
