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.
DOGS WANT CONTINUITY AND WHAT THEY HAVE AT HOME REPLICATED.
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.
I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU AND YOUR GREAT LOVE!
