a little bit about us
Hi, I'm Vikki, I live in Gosport with my husband Andy, who helps out during busy times, and our two gorgeous little rescue dogs Penny and Indie. We adore dogs of all shapes and sizes, but 'smallies' with their cheeky personality and unique charm, have always fitted perfectly our life. After adopting our first foreign rescue dog, Mila, in 2013, I became a volunteer for Serbia's Forgotten Paws, travelling to the country as part of a volunteer group, to work at the dog shelter in Nis, Serbia. It was an incredible, life changing experience, affirming that I wanted to work with dogs and be able to spend more time with my own much loved trio of smallies. Taking a leap of faith I left the relative security of Local Government employment to start my own dog walking business, combining my business and customer service skills with my passion for all things dog, and really felt that I'd found my calling, except for one thing - my own dogs just weren't comfortable around some of the larger bouncy dogs, resulting in tremendous 'mutt mum' guilt that they were anxious and missing out. Motivated by their needs, and the knowledge that there must be other dog families in a similar situation, I adapted my business, rebranding to Mini Mutts Retreat to specialise in small dog care.
We love helping 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 she had found her forever home, right here with us.
If you think I might be the right person to help care for your precious pooch, please get in touch for a friendly chat.
In Memory of Missy & Mila
A special mention must go to our darling girls, the original mini mutts. Both have now gained their angel wings, and are so very dearly missed.
