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 £20.00 for the day for the first dog and £15 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 £50. 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.

    What a fabulous little dog Mimi is, and SO unique looking! Every time I took her our for a walk, we were stopped by people wanting to admire her close up. So glad I could help out in a pinch. Mimi is welcome back any time.

    Zeppelin just had the best time with Mary-Louise. She was super accommodating and kept us updated along the way with photos and videos. She treated our boy to the good life, and very happy to have trusted her while we were away. Highly recommend!

    ZEPPELIN RULES! What a fabulous animal he is. He arrived with us and got into our groove instantly, as if he was one of our own. He never put a paw wrong and we CANNOT WAIT to have him with us again. I have to admit, he is one of the most wonderful dogs I have ever met. Next time, I just may dog-nap him😀
