We also offer preparation classes for the theoretical as well as the practical exams to qualify for your "Hundeführerschein".

Dog Boarding

Special service for frequent travellers. We offer boarding in a family setting for well-socialized dogs in our house and garden in Mahlow, south of Berlin (25 minutes with the S2 train from Potsdamer Platz).

After a short successful trial-stay your dog will be on the priority list and welcome to check-in regularly, also on short notice.

Dog Walking

If you work long hours or plan to go on holidays or business trips you might require the services of dog-walkers or kennels. Through my vast list of contacts I can also help you find the services that cater to your personal needs.

If you'd like to join us yourself, we also go on regular social walks together and look forward to getting to know you.

Dog Paperwork

Having a dog in Berlin also means that you need to fulfill certain legal obligations, such as registration of your dog (dog tax), having a compulsory dog liability insurance and ensuring that your dog is microchipped. I will gladly help you to get through the related paperwork.

Happy Clients Say

Sarah-Leith Stevie

When I was asked to go to China for 3 months work at the beginning of this year, I was very stressed about having to leave my dog behind for such a long period of time. The only people that I would ever trust enough to leave Stevie with are Kerstin and Jamie. Not just because they are great people who are amazing with dogs, but also because their guest dogs stay in the house and live in a 'family' environment, rather than in kennels.

Luckily for me they were available and happy to do it! While I was away Kerstin sent me regular photo updates and it was very obvious from the photos that Stevie was having a wonderful time. Stevie was treated like one of the family and quickly settled in.

I felt very secure that Stevie was getting the best care possible. They even crate trained her for her upcoming journey to Hong Kong. I can’t recommend Kerstin and Jamie highly enough!

Mike & Carey Henry

While living in Berlin, we travelled extensively for work, which can be a real challenge with a dog. However, that all changed when we found Kerstin and Jamie.

Our dog Henry is quite quirky and highly-strung, but took an immediate shine to both Kerstin and Jamie - in fact, after a few visits he would actually drag us down the road to their front door. Henry was welcomed into their home, which also has two very friendly dogs, who he loved playing with and are very easy going.

It was also brilliant that we were always kept in the the loop with pictures and updates, which is great while you're away from home. Kerstin and Jamie are always eager to understand your dogs needs, so always ensure they are comfortable with toys and comfy beds, have wonderful walks in the countryside, and are conscious about ensuring they are eating all their meals, which we know can be tricky when a dog isn't at home.
