About Mary-Louise

We are a married couple who work from home. We are home all day, so we are 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 (one got to 18). 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 five minute 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 &WILL NOT INCUR GOODWILL

PLEASE NOTE: We charge £35.00 for each 24 hour period or overnight. IF YOUR DOG IS NOT YET FULLY HOUSE TRAINED, WE MUST ASK £45 PER NIGHT (£30 for EACH ADDITIONAL DOG) FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. 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 day for the first dog and £20 for each additional dog, so if you collect your pal the following day before 1pm, you will only be charged £35.00. After that, it's £60. 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 and her husband were both great! We left our dog Dot more than once and we felt at easy at all times. She is very proactive when it comes to communication and spoiled Dot just the right amount! Thanks Mary- Louise!

    Mary-Louise was fantastic. We had absolutely no concerns or worries about leaving Jess with her for the whole week. Only problem was that Jess obviously enjoyed herself so much she seemed to be missing all the action and her friends when she got home! Excellent, thank you Mary-Louise.

    Come back Jess! We love you and my guys are all glum without you to boss them about. Proof that little dogs pack HUGE personalities :-)

    Zeppelin is one of our family now. We look forward to his every visit and are so pleased that he has crossed the Pond to make his home in green, grassy Elgland.
