About me

Hi, my name is Karen and this is my Doggy Home Boarding company.

I’ve had pets since I was seven years old – mostly dogs – including a collie, a labrador, a boxer and three Bernese Mountain Dogs. My current Bernese, Storm, is nine years old.

Growing up, I worked in local kennels at holidays and weekends, where I met just about every breed of dog. I also learned that kennels don’t suit every dog, and some pets don’t like the noise, miss their home comforts, and pine for human contact and cuddles.


I decided to set up my own Doggy Home Boarding company and found a franchise for 101 Friends for Every Dog, which has been home boarding dogs in the UK since 2005. I loved the idea that your dog stays with a loving family in their cosy home and that you and your dog meet them there in advance.


My career has been in recruitment and customer services, which I think has made this my ideal job. I’m also very interested in animal welfare and have contributed to SSPCA, WAP, WWF, Soi Dogs and Takis Shelter for many years.


My work with 101 Friends

I have been proud to be an operator for 101 Friends for Every Dog in East Kilbride and beyond for many years.


Set up in 2005, 101 Friends for Every Dog was one of the earliest providers of home boarding in  Britain. Since then it has cared for many thousands of dogs, so you can be totally confident that your dog will receive truly expert care.
