I have always had dogs in my life & follow Jan Fennels 'the dog listener's approach. I have done,, AirBNB, had students for many years so I am DBS checked etc. I have a large house with large fully enclosed garden, different types of dog baskets, seat belts, leads, extender leads & brushes. My estate car is fitted with a dog guard, so safe and secure to take dogs on walks further afield. As well as devils dyke, we go to lancing ring, mile oak hill, waterhall, greanleas, hollingbury dew pond and, in the winter, down to the beach near carrots cafe etc.

Before I agree to look after your dog, I ask that you bring your dog(s) to my house for a two way assessment. I like to get to know your dog, establish initial rapport, find out about likes, dislikes & your dogs personality to ensure that they'll fit in & to ensure that your dog will be happy with the existing 'pack' of small breeds; ranging in ages from 4 months to 9 years old. I am unable take un-neutered older dogs as all my current dogs are either neutered or very young. Most of the dogs I look after are small breeds, and therefore I do not take on large breeds as this can make the small breeds I look after anxious.

I provide a loving, fun & safe environment. I can also help out with behavioural issues that your dog may have - pulling on leads, anxiety etc, this will entail a few modifications to the owners approach in the main :). I am on 'whatsapp' and send pictures/videos of your dog during their stay with me. :)

I look forward to hearing from you.

    Tilly loved her time with Kate. She was very thorough with a detailed assessment at the start of her staycation and incredibly caring and patient with Tilly. During her time with Kate, Tilly has also picked up some really good habits and training. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate. Thank-you
