About Bonny

We're an active family of 4 (including a 2 and 8 year old) plus our own dachshund Dusty who likes Lots of cuddles, sleeping and barking at everything! We walk regularly at Hatfield Forest National Trust (only 1 minute walk) and go for many adventures in the beautiful countryside in our area. All the dogs enjoy wondering deep into the forest till there's not a road in sight! We have a garden big enough for running and playing which we spend alot of time in.
I'm at home most days so me and my family provide great companionship and love to get out and about or just play in the garden.
We offer the perfect break or weekend getaway for your furry friend with lots of love, games, and new sights and sounds. We're also perfectly situated if you're flying out from Stansted (only 10 minute drive) but don't worry we're not under any flight paths so your dog won't be bothered by any loud noises.

A typical day at our home starts at around 6am straight out to the garden then breakfast all round, we'll either have a morning/ evening shorter walk or 1 longer trip to the forest everyday followed by relaxing and playing in the garden. You'll be sure to get updates every day to track the walks which we've had and plenty of pictures and videos! I love capturing beautiful pictures of our guests and there's always a plenty of treats. We have some apple trees at the back of the garden, plus plenty of sticks and balls. - Today we enjoyed a dog friendly swim and dig at Mersea beach!

Our home would best suit a sociable dog as we will pass plenty of other owners in the forest however I'm happy to schedule walks during quieter times if they have a more nervous temperment.
For Guests staying a week or more I'll make sure your furbaby enjoys a delicious selection of treats from the homemade delights of Bishops Stortford Barkery.

    This is the second time we left Henry, he is well looked after & loved having 2 other play mates to play with. I was sent photos & a video of them on their walk which is very much appreciated. Highly recommend Bonny. Many thanks

    2nd time I have asked Bonny to look after Max-and this time she had our other two dogs for the weekend. We had a little hiccup with one of the dogs and Bonny was exceptionally professional in dealing with it and reassuring me all was fine. Can't recommend her enough..we have large dogs and a little furry thing..all of whom were very welcomed by Bonny's family, and they had a lovely time, which meant we enjoyed our weekend.
