The Staff

We pride ourselves on having a team of experienced staff who have been trained to give our customers' dogs and cats the very best of attention. The three core members of the team have each been with us for over 10 years.

Peter Heard

Peter Heard - owner

Peter is the owner/resident and has had hands-on involvement with the kennels/cattery for over 50 years. He is an international field trials and show judge, and breeds and trains his own red setters and black labradors, all of which live on the premises too.

Peter is supported by his wife, Eleanor, who has owned and trained a variety of breeds herself.

Sara Jales - partner

Sara has worked at the kennels for over 20 years. Her background is in nursing and she came to Meeting House from a position in a large boarding kennel and cattery in Kent, where she specialised in canine and feline nursing.

Sara has owned her own dogs for 25 years and successfully trains and field trials gundogs. She is responsible for the training and management of the staff at the kennels/cattery.
