Freddy and Emily have loved dogs all their lives (we grew up with Newfoundlands and retrievers), and now own the friendliest little Spaniel, Smee. We are both freelance opera singers and work from home between contracts, so one of us is here 24/7 for cuddles, walks and fun.
We have a lovely ground floor flat in Willesden Green with a large enclosed garden, and we live very close to two big parks where we walk Smee every day. Smee has been well socialised since a pup as we often take care of friends' and family's dogs. While we have doggy guests, we are able to adapt our routine to make sure everybody is given enough exercise, attention and time to relax.
Emily also enjoys dog training and would be more than happy to continue any training routines you have been doing at home, or start some fun and basic exercises with younger dogs.
Whilst Smee is very friendly with any dog he meets, we have had experience owning rescue dogs who are less able to socialise. We are very confident in meeting the needs of more anxious dogs. Being long-time dog owners, we are of course well versed in grooming, tooth brushing, nail clipping, worming and flea treatments, as necessary.
Past guests have included:
Bear, a German Shepherd X Staffie who is a big softie and a bit unsure of other dogs.
Patty, a working cocker spaniel with limitless energy for long walks.
Dolly, a short-haired mini dachshund who isn't keen on long walks, but very keen on cuddles!
We understand that all dogs are unique and can't wait to make your doggy feel safe, happy and at home as a member of our family.
