About Mary-Louise

We are a married couple who work from home. We are home all day, so we are practically always with our (and by extension YOUR) dogs. We've two dogs of our own and no children, so our dogs do double duty.

Both of us have owned dogs all of our lives, and we simply could not imagine a home without at least two to greet us in the morning and whenever we walk through the front door. We have lived with all sorts of dogs, from standard poodles to Yorkshire terriers and every sort and size in between, and we have loved all of them through every stage of life, from the zaniest, bounciest part of puppyhood, to the heart-breaking decline of old age.

All of our dogs have lived to great age. We like to think that is because we treat them with love and tenderness, exercising them often and NOT over-feeding them. We have a detached house in Putney with a sizeable garden which is completely fenced in and secure. We are a short walk from Putney Heath, and we regularly walk in Richmond Park. If your dog is house trained and not too stinky (You know who you are!), we'd love to have him or her come and stay. He or she will be loved as we love our own.

AS A COURTESY TO SLIGHTLY OCD ME, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR DOG & HIS BEDDING IS CLEAN WHEN YOU DROP OFF. STINKY DOGS AND BEDS ARE YUCKY AND WILL NOT INCUR GOODWILL

PLEASE NOTE: REGRETFULLY WE CANNOT ACCEPT PUPPIES OR DOGS THAT ARE NOT COMPLETELY HOUSEBROKEN, NOR CAN WE ACCEPT ANY DOG THAT IS NOT NEUTERED We charge £35.00 for each 24 hour period or overnight. If you wish to collect your dog more than four (4) hours after the 24 hour period, we will charge you £25.00 for the daycare. Please understand that dropping off early in the morning on day 1 and collecting in the evening of the last day constitutes one night and one day of care. Please be mindful that we have a life too, so do try to be punctual. Drop off before 9am by pre-arrangement only. No collections after 9pm please, unless there's a REALLY good story.

    Mary Louise was amazing. Arthur had a holiday too and came home happy, exhausted and well cared for. I have no hesitation in leaving my little treasure in Mary-Louise's hands next time I go away. Thank you so much!

    Gemma loved her day with Mary-Louise and I will definitely use her again. She is a lovely lady who quite obviously has a great rapport with dogs. I would highly recommend her.
