About carol

I love dogs , always have. We welcome all dogs to our home, where they are our family for their holiday and afterwards. Lots of games and walks and cuddles for our dogs; and pictures and messages for their owners whilst they are away. I am a registered nurse by profession which i entered at 16 until i took early retirement. I live at home with my husband , i have a daughter and a grandson. I enjoy long walks and sport, music and reading. I have been looking after dogs and cats sometimes for almost 2 years and i love it and it is my only occupation. We dont have any pets at home, just your pets which makes for a lovely time for your pet and a great relaxing holiday for yourself.

    Fantastic. Just collected Pippa after her long weekend away staying with Carol and Paul. Pippa was obviously comfortable in her 'holiday home' and clearly had a lovely relationship with Carol. Throughout our stay, Carol sent 'pupdates' to put our minds at ease and even gave Pippa a bath before she came home :) No hesitation whatsoever in recommending Carol (and Paul) as an extremely loving, caring and competent surrogate family for Pippa. We shall return!!

    Carol is the most wonderful dog sitter. Her attention to the individual needs of your beloved pooch is second to none. Carol is welcoming, caring and exceptionally intuitive. I have a rescue border collie, who is on the whole a loving dog, but does have some behavioural challenges. Carol adapts quickly and calmly putting both you the owner and your dog at ease. Tia loved her stay with Carol and Paul (in fact she protested about coming home) and is very much looking forward to many more ‘holidays’ with them. I could not be more thankful that we found them both. High recommended

    Carol was fantastic with Rocko, she looked after him very well and sent us a photo and updates. She’s a lovely lady who is obviously very good with dogs. Highly recommend.
