About Maxine

I am a registered dog carer and licenced by Croydon Council. I have full liability Insurance. I have a Certificates in Pet First Aid and Level 2 in Dog Behavior and Psychology. I am a very energetic, 51 year old dog lover. I grew up with German Shepherds and have owned 2 Staffordshire Bull Terriers. I am friendly and loving and love long walks and playing ball with dogs. I would take your dog to the park twice a day for an hour a time. I am surrounded by beautiful parks such as Crystal Palace and Norwood Lakes. I would look after your dog as if it was my own. If your dog is used to sleeping in your bedroom, then I will let him or her sleep in mine. I decided to look after dogs as I used a dog kennel once and was put off for life. I have used home boarders before and the difference is, coming home to a happy and healthy dog.
I live in a house with a secure garden and have 3 parks within a 10 minute walk from my house. I have wooden floors and leather sofas that can all be easily cleaned if there are any accidents.
I offer dog boarding in my home. Walking, daycare, visits, vet appointments. My service includes collection and return.

    Maxine is lovely & our dog Pippin loves going to stay with her & other dogs. We don't have other dogs and when we pick Pippin up he seem a bit sad to leave his friends and Maxine behind. Maxine is great at communication & updates which keep us at ease. Really great to have her & to know our Pippin is happy while we go away. Thank you & see you soon.

    Maxine is lovely and Baggy clearly enjoyed her stay. Maxine walks other dogs which suited Baggy. Although Baggy was pleased to see me ,I think she would happily have stayed with Maxine for longer.

    Maxine was lovely and took great care of our puppy Seymour. We got updates throughout the day and he got to make a lot of new doggie friends to play with. He's usually very wary of strangers but she put him at ease straight away. Thank you
