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. Happy to collect from further, please enquire for a quote.

All creatures are welcomed & loved.

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

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

Depending on the dogs we have boarding with us, it's max adventure time or 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, Wimbledon & Wandsworth Commons, York Gardens, Battersea, Spencer, King George's & Garratt Parks). We also head to Mitcham Common, Beddington Park & Crystal Palace. 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 7year, neutered female, mastiff x staff), Naughty Nia (our 1.5yr old ferret), our 1 year old daughter, 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.

PLEASE NOTE: We do charge higher rates for bank holidays, puppy’s and untrained dogs.

    Kira is a gem. BB8 loves as much exercise as he can can and he wasn't disappointed. He loves being part of a pack so he had the best day. X

    We love Kira! She took great care of little Dante and made him feel at home. Dante can be a bit difficult when he first meets big dogs but she handled it perfectly with him and Legs (Kira's dog). She makes sure that dogs are introduced in a neutral and calm atmosphere and Dante was perfectly fine. I also know that Dante was "spoilt" with many cuddles and many walks in the park. during his time with her and her lovely family. When I picked Dante up he was so calm and happy! I highly recommend her. Thank you Kira :) (Dante says hi)
