About Kira

Professional Pet Services family business. Est.2013.

Fully insured (on top of Dog Buddy's 3rd party). CRB checked. Qualified in Professional Dog Training. Complimentary local pick up/drop off between 9am-9pm for boarded pets. Happy to collect from further, please enquire for a quote.

Over the years we've regularly had animals of all shapes & sizes come & stay from dogs, cats & ferrets to rabbits, hamsters & mice.

All creatures great & small are welcomed & loved.

All walks & stays are tailored to your dogs specific requirements.

Depending on the dogs we have boarding with us, it's max adventure time or it's indoor play & cuddle days. Weather doesn't stop us! That's what's showers & towels are for.

On our adventure routes are many parks (Clapham Common, Battersea, York Gardens, Wandsworth Common, Spencer Park, Garratt Park & Wimbledon Common). We also head to Mitcham Common, Beddington Park & Crystal Palace often. Occasionally (with the owners permission) we enjoy taking the dogs exploring a little further afield to Brighton & Margate beaches.

We are confident & happy to board dogs that require medication or special diet. All dogs are fed separately. The dogs are never left alone at the property- they come with me everywhere whether it's out for a run or just up the road for a morning coffee.

Our resident explorers include our beautiful Legs (a 6year, neutered female, mastiff x staff), Naughty Nia (our 1yr old ferret), our daughter (born in Feb) and my partner & I. I'm used to introduction/interaction training. Languages spoken in household English, Spanish & Catalan.

If you have any questions or would like to have a meet & greet before to check whether While You're Away is the best place for your pooches holiday feel free to get in touch. I'm available daily, evenings & weekends. No query too strange or silly.
