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 the dogs feel settled, this benefits most dogs as when they eventually 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 9 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 (including my own dog, Oscar a Norfolk Terrier Cross) at any one time.

Please note: that I charge an additional £4 per day for puppies and dogs that are not house-trained!

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

Kind regards,




Cathy

    Cathy did a brilliant job. She really loves dogs and it really shows. Ozzie enjoyed staying over, he was in very safe hands.

    Cathy is so good! Lots of picture updates. She knows what she is doing. Dogs came back from her so happy, tails wagging so they clearly had a good time with her. Highly recommended!

    Hi Dylan, thank you for your review. I was very happy to care for Kano and Henri. Henri is a funny little boy, he made me laugh so many times throughout the day, Kano was a very affectionate/sweet little boy, who was so well behaved. It was a pleasure! Kind regards, Cathy

    Cathy was excellent with Biggly. Leaving him for the first time while he is still a puppy was very daunting, though with Cathy's experience our minds were put at rest. Biggly came back a happy little chap with improved walking and socialising skills!

    Hi Grace, Biggly is a great little puppy, who was very well behaved and loving, it was great to see a puppy of his age develop social skills so quickly. I look forward to having Biggly to stay again soon. Kind regards, Cathy
