About Kate

Hello, I'm Kate. My trusty companion is Bruce, a 9-year-old pug, and together we take pleasure in opening our home to dogs in need of a welcoming environment. We care for your furry friends as if they were our own, ensuring they feel right at home. It all started when I began looking after my friend's one-year-old cockapoo, and I discovered my genuine fondness for having other dogs around.


Currently, I have the joy of looking after three delightful dogs and two adorable cats either for day care or during holidays. There's Mason, the friendly Cockerpoo, Luna, the energetic Cocker Spaniel, and Henry, the lovable Cavapoo (although any non-spaniel breeds are welcome!). As for the feline members of our family, we have Luna the cat and her mischievous little brother, Toby. 😊


My entire house is dog-friendly, catering to the needs of dogs who do not enjoy crates. However, for those seeking some personal space, we also provide a spacious crate. Working from home allows me to ensure that no one is left alone for extended periods, and we take pleasure in accompanying our furry guests on delightful walks. Additionally, we have a fully enclosed garden where they can play to their heart's content.


We kindly request that visiting dogs have been house trained and have outgrown the habit of chewing household items. One of the beloved spots in our home, loved by dogs and cats alike, is the large bay window, perfect for sunbathing or observing passers-by. Should any pets require medication, we are more than happy to administer it. Furthermore, after walks, muddy pups can enjoy a refreshing bath and a gentle brushing if needed.


The thought of leaving my boy in kennels breaks my heart, which is why I strive to make other people's pets feel safe and secure in our care. Your furry companions will receive ample love and attention during their stay with us.

I would highly recommend Kate to look after any dog. We recently booked Kate to look after our 16 week old pup Syd while we went on holiday . She was fantastic from start to finish… allowing us to visit her with Syd prior to leaving him, being really flexible with collection and pick up times, sending me lots of videos and responding to my messages enquiring how he was. Kate is a real dog lover . When hubby went to collect Syd he was quite settled where he was and think he would have preferred to stay as he seemed to be having a ball. If we were to go need someone to look after Syd again I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Kate and would now be reluctant to leave with anyone else. Thank you Kate for looking after our pup so fantastically 🥰
