Time and attention is key...

My love of dogs started as a child, but my real understanding started 15 years ago when I got my Hungarian Vizsla, Charlie.  I learned a lot about caring for, training and loving a dog.

Mimi&Me gives your dog a loving home for just a day, or even for a few weeks. With most dog owners working, dogs spend a lot of time on their own. Most dogs love company. Most dogs love to socialise, to run around with other dogs, to investigate the countryside or a new park, to paddle in the sea. They need the stimulation of being out and about.

We give your dog that break which is much more than just a brief walk, more than a quick hour in the park or walk round the block. I give them company, keep them engaged and interested. I offer  a more holistitic approach with affection, care and the understanding that each dog is unique.


That’s what I aim to provide for all the dogs I look after, whether it’s for a day or if they board with me for a longer period. I give them adventures in one of the beautiful parks we have within a short drive - Richmond, Wimbledon, Putney Heath and of course our own Battersea. If the weather is reliable then we venture further afield to one of the National Trust parks or to the seaside. I limit the number of dogs and try and ensure that I have a good mix of temperaments. The advantage of having a full day is that I can learn to understand each dog as an individual.

The longer a dog spends in one environment,  the more they relax.

I aim to develop and maintain a relationship with my dogs so they are happy to spend time with me and enjoy their surroundings. I have an excellent working relationship with a vet who is literally just around the corner from where I am based and will deal with any issue which occurs promptly and efficiently.

I hope that you will find a home from home with me, where you will be confident that your dog will receive loving care and attention and come back to you a happy dog who has had a great day away.




Emma runs a fantastic dog care service. Our lively lurcher Bertie loves staying with Emma and her dog Mimi plus all the other regulars when they are there. Emma is reliable, caring and fun and takes the dogs on great walks in Battersea and beyond. We always have peace of mind when Bertie stays in Emma’s house knowing he will be well cared for and have a great time. We would highly recommend Mimi&Me!

If anyone needs doggy daycare/weekend/overnight dog sitting I cannot recommend Mimi&Me more highly. Battersea based but she takes the dogs all over the place - Windsor Great Park, Wimbledon Common, the beach. She’s amazing and treats the dogs as if they are her own.

Rover had a wonderful weeks stay with Mimi, Charlie and of course Emma. It really was a holiday for him as he enjoyed wonderful walks in Wimbledon, Kingston and Battersea. Being a city resident it was a real treat. He can’t wait for us to go away again so he can go back!

My cavalier king charles spaniel Monni has been to stay with Mimi and Emma for day care and boarding. She has a tendency to get anxious and is usually a little on edge when I pick her up after I’ve been away, but not when she stays with Emma. She comes back with a lovely calm temperament. I always keep up to date with her activities through Facebook Messenger or Instagram. She has a wonderful time playing with all the other dogs on their walks and has her own little spot in the house where she can chill out too.
