About us

We are proud to say that DEFRA has awarded our kennels and cattery a 5-star rating for animal welfare (Licencing of Activities Involving Animals)

Pat Clark with her family and staff are dedicated to ensuring that you and your pets have as stress-free a separation as possible.

Pat's well qualified to do this. As well as owning Normandale, Pat is a professional dog trainer, and member of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers. She runs classes for owners and their dogs every week in Harlow, Essex.

What's more, Pat is also the founder of Mutts in Distress, an organisation that rescues 'death row' dogs from the Essex stray pound. She gives her time generously to treating and rehoming the stray and abandoned dogs that she takes in.

Here are Pat and some of the staff with another happy visitor.
