About Mike

I have been around dogs all my life, from small dogs and puppies a few months old to Greyhounds, German Shepherds and Great Danes.

I have fostered dogs for an animal shelter for a number of years. For some dogs that meant tending for them until they were well enough to be adopted and for others it meant socialising and house training feral puppies to get them ready for adoption.

The house has a garden for dogs but there are wooded paths seconds from the front door where walk the dogs generally four times a day. I still often walk the dogs at Virginia Water or Ascot Racecourse with the occasional excursion to Chobham Common where I used to walk a lot.

I have looked after a wide range of dogs, small and large, young and old with the aim of giving them a little holiday and R & R while their owners are away.

I have attended a course in canine first aid so am prepared if something should happen while out and about with your dog.

    Very happy with Mike and I think Scamp was happy too. He, Scamp doesn't talk much, but he seems absolutely fine. Mike sent me a text every day which I was very impressed with. I would be very happy to have Scamp staying with him again, and recommend him to others.

    Mike took great care of our dog. He keeps you updated and puts your mind at rest that your dog is in good hands. I wouldn't hesitate using Mike in the future.

    Clearly a dog person through and through. I relaxed the moment we walked through the door and Mike crouched down to say hello to Xanax. After her first visit Xan couldn't wait to get to Mike's which is always a great sign. Mike is very flexible with pick up and drop offs and was very accommodating when we asked if she could spend the night. Definitely would use again. Thanks Mike!
