Home from Home
I love dogs, all breeds and types, all shapes and sizes, and have been minding dogs here for about 18 months. For 14 years I had a German shepherd and a collie lab cross. When they passed away, I didn't feel ready to have my own dog again. However, I really missed the company and fun, and just the simple pleasure of having a dog around, so I started looking after dogs in my own home and it was the best decision ever.
From the moment your dog arrives, he or she will be treated as though they are my own. I give them get lots of attention and exercise, so it doesn't take long for them to they feel completely secure and at home with me. It's very important for your peace of mind that the atmosphere here is relaxed and comfortable, so that when you arrive back, you will be greeted by a happy and contented doggie.
I live in Glasnevin and near Poppintree Park which is nice and big for walks and running around in. I know lots of people who walk their dogs here, so it's very sociable, and your dog will always meet a pal to run around with and have fun when they're getting exercise. In addition to the long morning walk and play, w I always bring them out after dinner in the evening for a good stroll before settling down for bedtime.
My garden is quite big and is very secure, with a nice sunny deck area for snoozing on when the sun is out. Your dog will sleep in the house, and you can bring beds, blankets, toys, and all the bits and bobs he or she needs to feel comfy and relaxed during their stay. You also bring their food, and any treats you like.
If you are interested, get in touch with me and if I'm free to look after your dog, we can arrange for you both to come here and check everything out.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Other clients' reviews of Anne Patricia
Our Luna is a nervous lady, who had a difficult start before she came to us, so we were a little worried that she wouldn't settle if she was minded outside our home. We need not have worried. Anne arranged a meet and greet which gave us all a chance to get to know one another a little. When we left her with Anne she settled easily and we could see from the updates and photos Anne sent that she was happy and settled. Anne took great care of her and was really attentive to her needs. We feel blessed to have found her and will definitely be back. Thank you Anne, from all of us (especially Luna).
Anne had Lizzie for us for 3 days - it was the first time we had left her and Anne made me feel totally relaxed. Anne has a beautiful house and her calm and fun temperament ensured that Lizzie felt totally at home. Lizzie was sad leaving Anne which shows how well looked after she was .
I could not recommend Anne strongly enough - I will definitely ask her to take Lizzie again - I was so relieved to know Lizzie was in good hands. Thank you so much Anne from Barbara and Lizzie 🐶
If we could give six stars we would!
Anne always takes such good care of Fiadh and there is such peace of mind leaving her with
someone of this level of experience and professionalism and who has a genuine affection for dogs.
We were delighted that Anne could take Oscar for us again this summer, Oscar loves Anne and is so happy with her, he was very settled and this was a huge relief for us as Oscar is like a child to us. Although we missed him we knew he couldn't have been in better hands than with Anne, she loves him and takes care of him like he was her own dog. Anne is a lovely lady and very easy to deal with, she welcomes you and your dog into her home like she knows you years. My aunt had messaged me while away to say she met Anne while out walking Oscar and he seemed so happy, this was great to hear. I couldn't recommend Anne enough.
Anne really looked after Daisy. They went for plenty of walks and we got some lovely photos of Daisy’s 1st time away from home. We will definitely send Daisy on holidays to Anne’s beautiful home again. Thanks Anne. Lilian
