We are Angelita and Kevin Brokenshire. We love hounds of all shapes and sizes and offer friendly, reliable and professional dog walking, daycare and boarding based at our family home in London N16. Combined we have over 50 years’ experience of caring for many different breeds of dog.
We both have up to date DBS and are fully insured. We are canine first aid trained, and have completed courses with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers. Angelita is currently completing an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour.
Our aim is to ensure that whilst in our care, your dog is treated like one of our own. Your dog will be well exercised, socialised and supervised, with love.
How we work
We walk dogs off lead in compatible groups of 4 dogs per walker. We believe in early socialisation and that a dog – no matter what size or breed – should be allowed to run and play with other dogs. During our walks the welfare of the dogs is our priority. We spend time observing dogs and their interactions, learning from each one what motivates them and the best way to communicate with them.
We will walk a dog on the street/pavement only if specifically requested to do so.
We will use a safe, comfortable and appropriately ventilated, purpose built vehicle for transporting your dog. As we work locally, within a small catchment area, your dog will spend little time in transit and lots of time playing with their doggy friends.
Basic training and reinforcing good behavior are an integral part of our walks. We only use positive training methods. Should you require training and behaviour support, we offer consultations and one to one sessions.
Whilst at our home, your dog is treated like one of the family, joining our two dogs, Chundo the Weimeraner and Pelu’ the Border Terrier. The dogs are free to roam the house and garden or snooze on our huge dog friendly sofa. We also have a designated quiet area for any dogs that require it.
We are not a boarding kennels, thus do not cage or crate our dogs, but should your dog prefer their crate, or their own bed, you are welcome to bring it for their stay.
Where we walk
We are fortunate enough to be in close proximity of Walthamstow and Hackney Marshes and Springfield Park.
We hold a dog walking license from the Lee Valley Park Authority. The marshes offer large areas for the dogs to run and play safely off lead. Whether your dog loves leaping through grass, strolling in flowery meadows or a refreshing swim our walks on the marshes offer it all.

Handcrafted collars and leads
We handcraft bespoke dog leads and collars. All of our products are designed and hand made at our home workshop. We use premium Italian vegetable tanned bridle leather, and high quality, solid cast nickel and brass fittings. Only natural products are used to condition and wax our leather items. As an alternative to leather, we also use Biothane, a very strong and durable material available in a wonderful range of vibrant and reflective colours.
