68, Retired lecturer

My family has enjoyed long & short legged, feisty, serene, wire haired & silky smooth pooches over the years. Most came from Rescue & we did what they needed to recover & enjoy life again. More recently I have been a member of Borrowmydoggy and Rover where there are reviews from owners who trusted me with their dogs. I have also cared for rabbits, Guinea pigs, fish & kittens in the course of family life.
My retirement home is on the west coast of Scotland across the sea from Arran, adjacent to the beach and to Largs where I was born. It has a large garden which I have tamed & enjoy tending, I host 4 dogs regularly when their owners go on holiday.
I spent my teenage years in New Zealand, my 3 adult children were all born in Winchester and we spent many years living near Bristol. I trained as a teacher last century & retired from my final job as a lecturer in Food & Nutrition 4years ago to help with elder care of my father and a Grandaughter's childcare. I am now redundant from both of these posts and ready to travel.....with a purpose, through this app. I am fully vaccinated and had Covid in March.

It was a pleasure to meet Alison and have her stay in my home with Piccolo. Alison was easy to chat to and I felt safe in the knowledge that both my home and Piccolo were being well cared for and looked after. Thank you Alison.

This was the first time I had someone sit my house and my pet and Ailie totally put my mind at ease right from the get-go. Great communication before/during/after, took great care of the house, and Bailey totally loved her (spent the whole next day moping around). Thanks!!

Green garden!

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
