About Matt

My wife and I are friendly, relaxed but responsible dog owners and offer a secure, loving holiday home to good natured dogs. Our dog Billy is a very happy black Labrador and is so good natured that friends have used him over the years to help socialise their young dogs.
Our home is a semi-detached house on a corner plot with a very large fenced garden. We have plenty of lovely open parks, fields and woods nearby for walking that are frequented by responsible dog owners. We need to meet dogs before agreeing any paid day care/boarding and will not take on aggressive, snappy or overly nervous dogs.
Day care and boarding to include all walks and low level grooming. You need to provide your dog's food, food bowl, lead and bed. I will keep you updated via email/whatsapp and send photos and short videos of your dog having a lovely holiday so that you can relax and enjoy yours.
Please note that bank holidays are double rate.

    This was the second time we have used Claire & just like our first time we had videos sent to us so we could see a happy dog. Great home for your dog to spend any time in.

    First time having our dog stay with someone else & we couldn't of picked a better family for Bailey to stay with. Met them prior to the week stay, which was great. Got sent various videos, which made the whole family smile & we could see Bailey was very happy. Can't recommend highly enough.
