I have grown up with dogs all my life and since owning my own 2years ago my passion for dogs has increased. Since having our golden retriever Oscar (just turned 2) we have always struggled to find a place to board him that we’re comfortable with. The thought of putting my own dog in kennels mortifies me. Fortunately we take Oscar with us if we ever go away or he goes to stay with my mum.

I have always dog sat families dogs and had them stay with me which I love. I now want to turn the hobby into a business where I can offer more days and nights.
I look after all types of dogs, shapes and sizes, young or old and everyone is treated as my own. They will be allowed on our sofa, endless outdoor play in our large contained garden and lots of cuddles and stimulation including long walks on or off lead.

My motto is ‘a tired pooch is a well behaved one’ so you will be rest assured that they will be well exercised and stimulated with games.

Due to having Oscar I am only able to allow dog friendly pooches in our home. Oscar is neutered and well mannered, he is a great companion for any dog and would make any dog feel welcome. He’s used to sharing his home with all types of fury friends.

We also have a camera that is set up to keep an eye on the dogs at night just in case they need that extra cuddle before bed.

I will keep you updated with pictures and videos if you wish and my mobile will always be on just in case you want to check up on your fur baby.

I will also offer a pick up and drop off service. I can also offer a mini grooming service that includes a hot shower with pet head products and a brush for afterwards - both for a small fee.

Any questions please do not hesitate to drop me a message but in the meantime, please check out my photos of some of the dogs that I have looked after.

Thank you 🐾
