About

DeTopo comes from my first dog, a Cavalier King Charles that my dad brought me home when I was ten. This was the start of my life-long love of dogs.  Now I have two beautiful beagles, George and Grace, who bring me endless joy.  All the DeTopo team share the same passion and experience when it comes to our four legged friends.  

Knowing the challenges that come with having an active hound in London and how much owners care about their dog’s welfare,  I set out to provide a different kind of doggy daycare - a home away from home for happy pooches that offers complete peace of mind.   

At DeTopo day care, the most important thing is that we provide a safe environment in which dogs can thrive and have a great time.  This means the right mixture of exercise and mental stimulation with periods of rest and alone-time - our studio here in Hackney Downs is equipped both with plenty of toys and comfy places to sleep.  Regular walks are on Hackney parks and longer excursions on the wide open spaces of Hackney Marshes where they get a good run around and plenty of fun.     

We specialise in friendly small and medium size dogs and puppies who are well socialised.  We limit the numbers to very small groups which are under constant supervision so that the pooches always get the care and attention they need.      

Part of our service is to fit in with the lives of the owners.  We know from experience how difficult it is finding flexible and last minute care for dogs - here at DeTopo we are happy to tailor our service to the needs of the dogs and the owners.
