About Kate

Hi there, I am Kate and I have grown up around dogs (and a lot of other animals!) all of my life. From an early age my family had two springer spaniels and as we grew up we have had other smaller dogs. I moved to London two years ago but back home we have four dogs - one bichon frise named Oscar, a bichon frise cross called Molly, a shitzu called Rosie and our newest little baby, a yorkie called Mia! They are the absolute best and I miss them so much.

I am available for walking, dog sitting and overnight boarding - providing your dog gets along with our two cats and is able to sleep in a separate room as we like to respect the cats so that they're not stressed (I can sleep in there too, if necessary!) In addition I can provide just visits, giving medications etc! I am able to be extremely flexible and I certainly prioritise this over any other responsibilities. I have a lot of experience and can provide basic training and nutritional advice where wanted!

My partner and I (and the cats!) live in Eltham. We live in a small bottom floor flat with a garden. I'm fully insured with Petplan as well as dog buddy and can provide lots of references. You are more than welcome to bring as many toys as you like and of course your dog's bed/crate too!

I will ensure complete safety and satisfaction and a true bond with your dog!! Your doggy will be treated as if he or she was my own! I can't wait to meet you and your furry friend!

    Kate is very professional & personable. Our Fenway has been on a walk and for a daycare day with her and Fatema and he has been relaxed and happy after both. Looking forward to having him stay with her while we go away for a weekend soon!

    Ah thanks, this is so kind. We appreciate it and absolutely love Fenway already. Hopefully we can look after him forever! ☺️

    Kate is confident with dogs and clearly an animal lover. I'm grateful to her and Fatema for helping me out short notice with my dog Lola - they had a fun time together and Lola was very well cared for. Thank you very much :-)

    Ah thank you Kirsten! We had a lovely time, she's such a clever dog. I think in time she'll be running around off the lead without any problems! Hopefully see you and Lola again. Kate X
