Who are we?

Sue & Peter Martin

Peter & Sue Martin
(with Ginger, Maggie, Neka, Aston and Moss) 

Peter and Sue have owned Muirburn Kennels & Cattery since 1996. During that time they have continually made improvements to make it the best animal boarding establishment they can. This has included the complete modernisation of the kennel blocks and the re-landscaping of the grounds to create the best environment for boarders in their care.


Becky and Dogs

Our Team

Cindy Webb

Cindy Webb (and Taff) - Kennel Supervisor

Cindy began working at Muirburn in 2003 after completing her BTEC in Animal Care and Management. She is also a qualified animal first aider and assists Becky in The Grooming Parlour whenever she can. Amazingly, Cindy used to be scared of dogs!

Nina Joiner

Nina Joiner (and Scrag) - Kennel Assistant

Nina has been with Muirburn since 1998, but prior to that she gained her kennel experience as the lead kennel hand at Portsmouth Greyhound Stadium where she looked after the welfare of the dogs, from day-to-day care to training them to compete. She was also heavily involved in the rehoming process which of course led to her owning a greyhound! Nina still has a soft spot for Greyhounds and Whippets.

Katie Worner

Katie Worner (and Louie) - Kennel Assistant

Katie first came to Muirburn to complete a two week work experience placement in March 2004 during her final college year.
