We are a family of four with school aged children 8 and 10. If your dog is social, friendly and good with children, then we would be a perfect fit. Both parents have had experience with caring for dogs and we would now like to introduce our children to the joys of caring for dogs too.

Any dog who stays with us will be supervised 24/7 and exercised daily. We are an active family and regularly find ourselves in the local parks and green spaces, and will happily bring any dog to any outdoor excursion we find ourselves involved.

We would like to have our own dog one day, but as we are not ready to adopt a dog yet, we would like to offer our home to 'housemydog' as an interim solution.

& Sam

August 2019

Darren and his family took great care of Sam, he was a very happy pup when I picked him up!

& Enzo

June 2019

Darren and his family were fantastic with our dog Enzo. He was very well cared for and really happy in his temporary home. Would highly recommend Darren and will use again. Thanks

& Ruby

May 2019

Darren and the family were absolutely superb from the first contact. They went out of their way to be available for us to drop Ruby off when our holiday plans changed by a day. Ruby had a wonderful time and was happily playing football with the whole family when we collected her! Lots of lovely photos and updates sent to us so we could see how happy she was. We can't thank them enough for looking after our precious pooch and will definitely be in touch with them when we plan our next holiday.

& Kevin

April 2019

Darren & his family were great. Kevin (dog) had a great time and was very well looked after.

& Bailey

March 2019

Darren and his family are all fond of dogs and were extremely welcoming to our dog (who was a little shy initially) . Bailey was obviously very well looked after and seemed very happy in her new environment. We’d be very happy for Bailey to go back for her next holiday. Thank you for taking such good care of her.

& Hamish

January 2019

Darren and his family are absolutely wonderful and I wouldn't hesitate to leave my dog Hamish with them again. Hamish clearly had a great time with them over the past 10 days and I'm sure can't wait for his next visit!

& Teddy

November 2018

So happy to have Teddy so well looked after over the days we were away. Thanks for welcoming him to your home and taking such good care of him. He came home very happy and content.

& Gaia

September 2018

Gaia loved her holidays with Darren and his family. They were very communicative and sent lots of pictures. It really put my mind at ease to know she was being looked after well while we were away. We would definitely book her in with Darren and his family again.

& Cailín

July 2018

Thanks Darren and family for looking after Cailín so well. She loved the trips out and we loved getting the photo updates.

Many thanks again,
