Hello, neighbours!

I am currently at home a lot and would love a canine companion to take on short local walks and to give lots of cuddles to, either at my home or yours.

I live near Tower Bridge in a clean and safe flat with a balcony. I do not have any children.

I previously looked after my neighbour's dog over a period of 18 months until she relocated and now there is a Dachshund-shaped hole in my heart I would like to fill!

I also have spent a lot of time with Setters, Labradors, Spaniels and mixed breeds (pedigrees and rescue dogs alike) through family and friends and would love to meet any kind of dog who enjoys human company and interaction. I understand the importance of sticking to a dog's dietary regime and allowing the same freedoms/maintaining the same rules that are in place at the dog's home.

Please contact me if you think we could help each other out so that we can arrange to speak and hopefully meet.

I hope to hear from you soon!


PS Just to be clear, I am not offering professional dog-walking/-sitting services.

Hi Boroughonian!

Thanks so much for your help - very kind of you!

I actually discovered that website just this week so have signed myself up. It's absolutely brilliant! The only problem is that its location tool gives pretty imprecise info as to the other person's address so you can only work out logistics by asking them outright in a message and borrowers have to wait to be messaged by owners so it may take me a while to get matched up with a local and willing pooch, which is why I thought I'd give posting here a go too :)

Thanks again,

There is someone in Shad Thames with a Dachsie puppy. I'll see if I can get them to look at this website

Hi - We have an older labrador who would benefit from additional company (and we would benefit from knowing someone locally who could sub in for us from time to time).
