About Emma & Tom

Hello! We are Emma and Tom. Lifetime dog lovers, owners and experienced sitters. We have recently moved from our little flat overlooking Victoria Park in Canton, from which we have made lots of new canine pals providing boarding service through DogBuddy over the past 3 years. Thanks to the volume of bookings we've undertaken, it's helped us to save for a deposit on our very own house on Barry Waterfront.

We live in a 3 bedroom townhouse, with an enclosed back garden and a large first floor window for your pup to watch the world go by. On the weekends, we sometimes like to get out for longer walks farther afield, like an afternoon at the beach. If more content on comfort, we’re more than happy to spend a Sunday bundled up on the sofa and keep your canine company! We have access to some great walking hot spots - just 10 minute walk from Barry Island and The Knap. If your dog loves an adventure, we do enjoy hopping in the car up to the other beaches in the Vale.

We're happy to accommodate your trusty canine, whether it be for a few hours one day, or a couple of nights. Despite working during the week (Tom is off most Thursdays), our employers are situated locally, meaning we can come home for lunch to check in on our guests for a walk or feed.

It is important to us that you to feel comfortable in the knowledge that your precious pooch is in safe hands. With that said, we do encourage owners to come meet us prior to bookings, especially extended breaks. This gives you the opportunity to see if we are suitable sitters and, more importantly to, gives your dog time to get to know us.

Thank you for considering us. See you soon :)

    This was Ollie's second stay with Tom and Emma and his first overnight stay. Again we felf very comfortable leaving Ollie and he was very settled when he came back to us. I would highly recommend Tom and Emma and wouldnt hesitate to use them again in the future. Many thanks Tom and Emma! xx

    This was Ollie's first stay away from us and I must say I was quite nervous but it all went very well. He seemed to take to Tom very well and went with him for a walk in the park as soon as they met without giving us a second glance! He was very settled and not at all anxious when we picked him up. He is staying with Tom and Emma again in September and I must say I really wont be nervous at all. I would recommend Tom and Emma to my friends and family :-)
