All About Dogs


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 was amazing with my little love, Fish. We did an introductory meeting and he absolutely loved her and her dog, Oscar. When I picked him up, he was exhausted from all the fun they had. Definitely recommend Cathy! She's lovely!

    Cathy was brilliant with our 2 dogs for an overnight stay. We did a meet and greet first, then had a 3 hour free trial a couple of days before the overnight stay so they knew Cathy and her home. By the time we went over for their overnight stay both dogs were so happy to see Cathy and didn't look back when I left them. Cathy sent us lovely pics of the dogs throughout their stay and had a lovely time with her. We will be definitely be back to Cathy's
