About Cathy

Hi my name is Cathy and I have been I have been caring for dogs professionally for the last 16 years, I am crb checked, vet accredited and I am insured with Pet Business Insurance.

I am also a registered professional dog obedience trainer and I have recently completed an Institute of Modern Dog Trainers Advanced Training and Behaviour Course, I run dog training classes once a week and I have one to one consultations with clients and their dogs.

Many of my current clients have been using me to care for their little treasures for up to 8 years, so I would be more than happy to supply references from them if they are required.

A change of environment is highly stressful for all dogs, therefore I offer a free 3 hours trial for all new dogs before, they come to stay for boarding/daycare, during this time , I walk, interact with and do my best to make them feel settled, this benefits most dogs as when they come to stay with me, they are familiar/comfortable with me, my home and the local parks.

In order to adhere to Dogbuddy's strict rules and regulations, I do NOT accept cash and all bookings must be paid for and made through Dogbuddy!!

I offer a reduced rate for dogs that are boarding with me for 10 nights or more.

Pet parents, feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have and be assured that all of the dogs in my care will be looked after, as though they were my own dog, in order to be fair to and meet their daily (mental and physical needs) I only board up to 2 dogs at the same time, occasionally this may be 3.

Please note: that I charge an additional £5 per day for puppies and dogs that are not 100% house-trained!

Thank you for taking the time to read this introductory letter.

Kind regards,




Cathy

    Cathy has been amazing! She sent me a lot of pictures of Gina to show me how happy and calm she was. Highly recommended.

    Cathy has been an absolute star! Took my puppy bear without meeting him as she understood I had travel commitments and wasn't from London. Bear has been going early morning and coming home knackered at 6.30. So glad I used dog buddy whilst I was away to occupy my otherwise very active dog and willdefo use again. Thanks Cathy

    Cathy was great looking after Mork attending to his infected paw and concerned about his loose stools taking very good care of him.
