I have been part-time house/pet sitting for over 20 years.
A little background - I was in the South African Police Force for 12 years which is how I came to house/pet sit in the first place! Since coming to the UK in 2006, I have worked for Nacro, Mind and more recently the NHS. However after our beloved dog passed away in September 2018, we rescued two Romanian Street Dogs.
True dog loves and as clients of mine, they are more then capable of handling everyday problems.
Perfect Pooches 18
Hello, my name is Alex.
I am extremely passionate about all animals big and small. My love for pooches started from a very young age, as a toddler my best friend was a gorgeous blue Great Dane called (funnily enough) Blue. Growing up, I was lucky enough to be brought up with domestic pets, with the odd farm animals thrown in the mix. I have a loving and caring side, which is key when looking after animals.
Alex looked after my fur baby for a long weekend early in May this year. I’m a worried dog owner and never leave my baby for too long, or with people I don’t trust, I’m also not happy about letting people into my home when I’m not there. I met Alex before hand, she is so very understanding and professional, showed me all her papers and talked tome about what I wanted and any concerns we had, we even went on a get to know you walk before the weekend. My fur baby took to Alex immediately and was her best buddy almost straight away, over the weekend I got pictures and updates very regularly and Alex checked with me on anything she thought I might be uncomfortable with (new places to walk etc). I’m sure the house was neater and cleaner when I got back than it was when we left and I know Alex looked after my home with huge respect. I have absolutely no problem recommending her to anyone and know we with be using her again for our next trip away. Thank you Alex, you are amazing :)
