About Mine

I was born into an animal loving family and looked after dogs, cats, lizards, fish, birds and various other animals all of my life. To me they’re not pets, they’re family, and a natural part of our daily lives. Without them, life just isn’t the same.

I lost my late dog, Oprah (Staffy) in 2019. As I’ve lived away from my family most of my life, she was family. Her passing led me to dog sitting/boarding and the way I do it.

I now own the sweetest, most wonderful, Blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Maya, who is just over two years old and is going through second puppyhood. :)

I also have a bearded dragon: Priscilla the Queen of the Desert :)) You are welcome to cuddle her when you come, if she’s not brumating.

Dogs are a huge passion for me.

I understand how it feels to love a dog like your own child, friend or family, and I understand how difficult it is to trust someone with their care, routine and training. I know what it means to wonder if they’re safe, loved and happy.

This is a crate free, choke chain free, compassionate, loving HOME environment for dogs, who does not fit into a Kennel setting. Here they lay on dog beds and sofas, play with lots of dogs, get loads of love and cuddles and have constant access to grassy gardens all through the day. I love them like my own and I see that my clients know how much.

I have many years experience with puppy training, with a variety of breeds, as well as experience with senior dog with ailments. I took care of my old girl with pancreatitis for a long time, and I’m happy to look after yours.

I’m happy to care of your pets in my own home due to practicalities but happy to discuss and consider other options together if you’d prefer differently.

At a time where our puppies have been isolated with us due to Covid, or when we have to now go back to work, I will provide for much needed love and care, socialising and training time, as well as practicing being calm around other dogs without the aid of crates and cages and draconic training techniques.

I can work with some difficulties like separation anxiety, over excitement around other dogs, fear of dogs, etc... For me to be able to help, you must tell me everything you know about your dog. :)

I will always stick to your personal preferences regarding diet, exercise and routine - I understand the importance of this as a dog lover and owner for many years.

I don’t believe in bad dogs, I believe in connecting and understanding each dog individually and approaching compassionately to their needs, so they can feel safe and be more dog.

I worked with many shy dogs, over excited dogs, rescue dogs, bull breeds and Brachycephalic breeds. I have a natural curiosity to get to know each dog individually and find the best way to cater for them.

Dogs are my life :) So my weekly routine is designed around them. I am an early riser with a lot of stamina. I like to keep fit, be outdoors and be active.

I am happy to be flexible to your needs.

Pick up and drop off can be discussed.

20 minutes to Brighton, 15 minutes to Worthing, 7 mins to Lancing beach, my new location in Sompting backs onto the downs, making it a great location for lots of fun activities and endless options for cerebral stimulation for dogs.

I have two fenced grass gardens in my property, as well as a large conservatory for safe shade and rest time. Ball pit and paddling pool offers lovely fun time for doggies, but it’s also a great place to teach toileting, leash training, basic obedience, and allows for your pets to safely be social, guided by a carer.

I have a 5 car capacity driveway for you to park your cars safely and for free.

You will be welcome to come by for a meet and greet, see where I am, what it looks like and how it’s run.

I have access to stimulating learning games, toys, tunnels, ball pit, paddling pool and ability to train your dog the way you want.

My hope is to undo the impact of Covid on our dogs by encouraging guided social activities and stimulation and walks in a pack to build confidence and calm.

I also learned that I get great joy of enabling my clients to do what they wish to do without worrying about their dogs, feeling assured all through their stay.

The more you can tell me about your dogs the better.

I will need information on dietary needs, eating routines, as well as exercise requirements and specific needs of your dogs around medication, routine, etc..

As this is a social dog environment it’s incredibly important that you tell me the truth about your dog to ensure the safety and security of all dogs, including yours.

Sassy seemed to have a fab time with Mine! Felt like she had had a holiday too, made lots of doggy friends, and she looked very relaxed with wagging tail when we saw her in the garden :)

Felt confident that she was relaxed and happy.

I loved that we had photos sent by Mine - made my day getting updates and seeing what she was up to! :)
