Our 4 month old pug puppy Peggy stayed with Claire and Lisa and had the best time ever! They regularly sent us photo and video updates of Peggy doing zoomies and having sleepy cuddles. Being around other dogs has had a very positive impact on Peggy’s puppy behaviour too. We would highly recommend Claire and Lisa, and we will definitely book Peggy in for another stay.

Letrisia and family looked after Timmy so well. They have a lovely welcoming home with lots of secure space and Timmy was totally pampered during his stay. It was a special time for us as we were getting married nearby and Letrisia obliged us by bringing Timmy ( in his tuxedo lol) to the church. She couldn’t have been nicer. During his stay Letrisia sent loads of photos and it was obvious how happy he was. I could not recommend this dog sitter enough and will definitely book Timmy in for his holidays again. 😎

Sarah really put me at ease as a first time dog owner and first time I’ve left my dog! I got photo updates daily and my puppy returned happy and calm, and clearly has had a good and relaxed time. He’s been there with a mixture of dogs which I think has helped massively with his socialising, under Sarah’s watchful eye. She was able to reassure me of the care given to my small pomchi puppy. Already making my next booking!
