A little bit about us
Hello, thankyou for visiting Mini Mutts Retreat. We are a couple run, professional pet care business in Gosport. We love all dogs, but small dogs, with their cheeky personality and unique charm, hold a special place in our heart and have always fitted perfectly into our life, we are currently owned by Penny and Indie, two gorgeous little rescues. Back in 2013 we adopted our first foreign rescue dog Mila, and I (Vikki) had the opportunity to visit her homeland to work at the dog shelter in Nis, Serbia, with a volunteer group. It was a life changing experience, affirming that I wanted to work with dogs. With full support from Andy, I left my Local Government career to start a dog walking business and after three years decided to specialise in 'just for small dogs'. Andy joined the business in 2018, working together we offer around the clock care, and double the love.
Naturally you want the best for your cherished dog, so choosing someone to care for him/her isn't easy, we completely understand as we have experienced this ourselves. Along with our 7 established years, combined experience and genuine passion for dog welfare and wellbeing, we are insured and licensed, having been awarded a 'higher standard - 5 star licence' following inspection by Gosport Borough Council.
Dogs are a huge part in our life. Our happy place is snuggled on the sofa with the dogs and a cuppa after a lovely walk. We still help our dog rescue friends and charities when we can, and are proud members of the 'failed foster club' after Penny came to us for foster care but quickly wriggled her way in to our hearts convincing us that her forever home was right here with us.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website, you can find more information, along with prices, photos, and reviews as you click through.

In memory of the original mini mutts
A special mention must go to Missy and Mila, our darling little dogs who were with us at the start of our professional dog care journey, but have since, sadly passed over 'Rainbow Bridge' - they are so very dearly missed but remain forever in our hearts.
