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 6.5year, 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: our prices range from £28-£35 for boarding & £25-£32 for day care. Prices are tailored & depend on size & training level of the dog. Please enquire.

    Kira is a wonderful sitter for Buddy. She has a great understanding of what makes dogs feel happy and relaxed, and loves taking them for long walks. Kira sent us photos of Buddy having a whale of a time and he was a very happy chappy when we came to collect him. Thank you Kira! We'll definitely be back again :)

    Kira is friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Milo had lots of fun playing with the other dogs. Kira sent lots of photos and dropped Milo home so we could relax knowing he was well looked after. Kira is now our default go to.
