Nine years as a professional dog walker, cat sitter, and pet sitter in Portsmouth means I have built up a solid base of experience providing these services.
In addition to my professional experience with pets I am blessed to have two dogs of my own from rescue, both of whom are a bit socially-challenged(!) and who have both been a huge learning curve!
The skills I practise daily with my own dogs have been easily applied throughout my professional life and have been a huge asset.
In the past I have enjoyed keeping many characterful pets; guinea-pigs, rabbits, gerbils, mice, rats and fish and welcome these animals into my home to board. I can also visit these pets as frequently as you choose while you are away.
Conspicuous by its absence from that list is a cat; I have never been owned by a cat and am unlikely to be in the future due to my very allergic husband!! It is only through my visiting service that I get to enjoy their company and quirks, so for a possibly quite over-indulgent cat visiting service, please do get in touch!
I’ve been walking dogs as a hobby since I was 12 years old. I’ve recently decided to turn it into a full-time career. Over the years I have developed experience with a wide variety of dogs, with an even wider variety of personalities.
With a degree in psychology focused on animal behaviour, I aspire to be a positive, force-free dog trainer using ethical science-based training techniques.
Hi, I'm Alice and I have a passion for animals and have owned rescue dogs,cats and horses since I was little! I have recently rehomed a Spanish Mastin who is a gentle giant and loves both humans and dogs. I've spent the last 5 years rehabilitating and rehoming neglected horses and donkeys with an enthusiasm towards ethical training and handling and now I am using this experience with smaller animals!
