About me

I am a registered and licenced dog carer with full Insurance. I have certificates in Pet First Aid and Level 2 in Dog Behavior/Psychology, but above all I am a dog lover! I am a very energetic 52. I grew up with German Shepherds and have owned 2 Staffordshire Bull Terriers. I am friendly and loving and love long walks and playing ball with dogs. I would take your dog to the park twice a day for an hour a time. I am surrounded by beautiful parks such as Crystal Palace and Norwood Lakes. I would look after your dog as if it was my own. If your dog is used to sleeping in your bedroom, then I will let him or her sleep in mine. I decided to look after dogs as I used a dog kennel once and was put off for life. I have used home boarders before and the difference is, coming home to a happy and healthy dog. I live in a house with a secure garden and have 3 parks within a 10 minute walk from my house. I have wooden floors and leather ...

I have wooden floors and leather sofas that can all be easily cleaned if there are any accidents. I offer dog boarding in my home. Walking, daycare, visits, vet appointments. My service includes collection and return.

Maxine was great she is very friendly and a loving nature with the dogs she looked after my 2 dogs for 2 weeks in which time she sent me updates and a few videos to my phone which was great to see as when you go away and worry on your dogs being cared for it puts your mind at rest and put a big smile on my face I could enjoy my holiday to the full knowing they were very well looked after and happy I hope when I go away again Maxine can look after them a peace of mind for me, she is a born natural animal lover and its shows so much I would highly recommend her.

Maxine was great. Was the first time I had left my dog with someone else and was very nervous. Maxine was contactable and reassuring leading up to the date. Sent me videos of my dog on walks, settled at her home, and playing during the stay, and made an easy drop off after. My dog loved her and I will definitely be using her next time! See less

Maxine was amazing. My husband and I left for the States for 11 days and this was the first time we trusted to leave our dog with anyone without taking him with us. Maxine sent us photos and we were able to talk to her with updates and she literally took all the worry out of having a pet sitter. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is needing a holiday without the worries of our beloved pets! Thanks so much Maxine! See less

maxine is the best petsitter we found, ever. we left our labrador with her for three weeks, and i could say our dog enjoyed very much. i was worried about leaving him in a kennel because of three weeks were too much. we tried with some petsitters before knowing maxine, and we left our dog for one or two days with them. the experience was horrible. but when i saw the maxine profile and reviews i thought i have to tried with her before booking a kennel. and definetly maxine was fantastic, even our dog learnt a lot of things from her. she socialized him with other dogs, and now we can go to the park with viggo without problems. we will repeat the experience with her. now i can say she is the only one we are going to book in for viggo in the future. many thanks maxine.

i could tell that maya and sasha had a fantastic holiday with maxine. the pups were both fit and energized, looking better than ever. sasha didn't want to leave and hugged maxine, it was very heartwarming to see. maxine sent me constant updates whilst i was away which just made me enjoy my holiday more, knowing that my girls were in the best hands. this was the first time i had left them with a sitter, and all i can say is that i'll be taking more holidays for me and for the girls as they will always be happy in maxine's care :) See less

despite my caution approaching a complete stranger to look after our family pet, i could not have been happier with the booking. maxine was confident, enthusiastic and extremely positive. happy to meet first in park, kept us up to date with lovely videos while away. generally superb. an exceptional dog sitter who i would recommend to anyone wholeheartedly, especially to anyone like me who harbours any reservations at the prospect of a random petsitter. we had complete peace of mind and joni mitchell was positively buoyant throughout stay and bouncing fit, full of life on collection. terrific job.

jarvis stayed with the lovely maxine for three weeks and clearly had a ball. we had photo and video updates to keep us posted, as he ran around the park barking his head off like he normally does. when we picked him up, he looked absolutely happy and relaxed, super chilled in fact! max has obviously exercised him beautifully; he has never looked so fit and healthy. couldn't be happier with the service - we'll definitely be back.

we felt immediately comfortable when we first met maxine, and jarvis obviously did as he ran straight into the garden. this was his first stay overnight with a complete stranger, so we were a bit nervous, but we needn't have worried. maxine did a wonderful job. when we picked him up, he was playing ball in the garden and looked happy and relaxed. we actually think he can't wait to go back! will be using maxine again for a longer stint next time and for the foreeable future.
