Professional Pet Minding

I can offer a wealth of happy customer references and most importantly am reliable and trustworthy looking after your pets in CroydonZoe

Having trained as a veterinary nurse primarily, I started home dog boarding in Croydon some 27 years ago. I wanted to give them the companionship and personal attention they richly reward us with, unerringly so. Nothing less would suffice, so I made it my aim to offer them a ‘home from home’ environment without kennels or cages.

My experience has also encompassed being a volunteer for a local Croydon based animal rescue group for 14 years, such is my passion for animals.

When it comes to Home Boarding I only take in 3 dogs at any one time for short or long stays, people often ask, “How do they all get on”? The answer is more simple than it appears. Our canine friends are inherently highly sociable pack animals. By careful screening, I rule out dominant aggressive individuals who might ascend any pack order and cause conflict to another person’s much loved animal whilst in my care. All dogs are vetted carefully this way, and owners visit first before making a booking arrangement. If there’s uncertainty on how your dog will fit in with others, then a short trial period is recommended.

Luckily living adjacent to a National Trust Woodland and on the doorstep of Surrey’s beautiful North Downs, I can offer all the exercise and play area any dog could want:  Contact 020 8657 8140

Since my initial role of home boarding I have extended my work to suit those who need alternatively a dog walker in Croydon or a cat feeding service extending into other areas, such as Kent.


For added peace of mind as well as being a trained veterinary nurse, I’m fully insured for Public Liability and Third Party Risks with Cliverton.

I can offer a wealth of happy customer references and most importantly am reliable and trustworthy.
