About Mika

I am so lucky that this has become my full time job. Alongside boarding and daycare I also teach agility. I can wholeheartedly say I never want to do anything else again. I have experience with big and small dogs.

As a dog owner I understand completely the anxiety that comes along with trusting someone to look after one or both of them. I would love to give everyone I work with peace of mind to enjoy their holiday / trip to the fullest and know their best is getting treated like royalty.

I have been animal obsessed my entire life. Dogs, cats, birds and any animal you can think of. I have been blessed to have had animals from a very young age. I have a beautiful Pug and a very sweet Cavapoo at the moment, they are the heart of our home. We tragically lost our Rhodesian Ridgeback to cancer in 2021. 

We have a beautiful 2 bedroom Grade II listed house in central Guildford. The dogs will have access to the entire house. I accept small and medium dogs. Unfortunately my house doesn't have the space for large and X large dogs. We have a walled patio at the front and a walled garden at the back. Perfect for small and medium breeds. The dogs love to play in the garden.

I am currently just at home so my schedule is very flexible. I am available for boarding weekdays and weekends. We have a routine of 2 daily long walks and play with our dogs but I will of course cater to your pets specific needs. I have a big jeep that is equipped for dogs so I am available for collection, drop-offs and tailor walks.

We have a very secure house in central Guildford with a walled front patio garden and a walled back garden. We have beautiful parks all around us only a short walk away including Stoke park and Pewley Down. Both our dogs absolutely love all other dogs. Very happy to crate train or make a snuggly floor bed in our bedroom next to us. There will never be a lack of love and attention if your dog is staying with us.

We are a very active family. My husband and I take our dogs for 2 daily walks (if the weather permits) We do scent work in the park every morning and I love taking some of my regular guests on runs with me.

All dogs have different needs so I will be sure to follow a routine that suits your dogs best. We can do high activity or alternatively less actively with comfy lounging on our couch with cuddles. I ask to please let me know everything there is to know about your dog. From temperament, health, quirks and activity level. I am open to all breeds and needs. The only thing I unfortunately can not accept with boarding is dogs that are aggressive with other dogs, as I have 2 dogs of my own I have to make sure they are safe in their own home. 

*I accept only dogs that are non aggressive, spayed and fully vaccinated for boarding and daycare*

I do accept reactive dogs with drop in visits as I am very comfortable and confident around dogs.

I am incredibly impressed and satisfied with Mika's outstanding care for Daisy. Her updates have provided immense comfort, making our time away stress-free and enjoyable. Mika's thoughtfulness, dedication, and willingness to go above and beyond have been exceptional. Daisy couldn't have been in better hands. Mika's professionalism and warm rapport have made this experience truly wonderful. I am grateful for her care and highly recommend her services.

Mika is a very enthusiastic and caring dogsitter. Nothing is too much trouble and she administered all Maisie's medications. Maisie was treated like a princess including being given her own pink dressing gown with ears! She was treated like a member of the family and I would highly recommend her.
