About Janine

I truly adore dogs and am well experienced having a 15 year old Shih Tzu called Mao and a 5 year old Cockerjack called Alfie, both friendly. I enjoy walking them in nearby parks, the beach and forest. I am extremely experienced sitting other dogs having spent 12 years house sitting my well travelled sister's dogs, a chocolate Labrador, Vizler and Daschapom. My doggy day care and boarding is going from strength to strength with Oscar, a 4 year old Cockerpoo and Doogie a 2 year old Mini Schnauzer, amongst others, being a regular.

Having loved all animals from an early age especially dogs and cats, I am never happier than in the company of animals so feel extremely lucky to have a business that works around them. I also completed a Veterinary nursing diploma a decade ago because I wanted to give my dogs, cat and other animals the best care possible. I have just taken and gained a Diploma in canine first aid (2015).

Home is a spacious 2 bedroom period property with large enclosed garden. Near many parks and beach essential for doggy walks.

I never in my wildest dreams thought I would get to do a job I love, working with dogs.

I would kindly ask owners who book their dogs with me to fully complete dog details and make sure they are flea'd and wormed before they stay. Also that their vaccinations are up to date (a copy of same rqd. for stay) along with their chip info. Please toilet your dog before start of stay. Thank you for choosing me and for your amazing reviews. I can promise you whole heartedly that any dog I care for will be looked after with patience and a whole lot of love. Janine.

Specialist in small dog breeds so apologies but unable to accommodate medium/large dog breeds at the moment.

Dog sitting day: 7.30 am - 6 pm and night: 24 hours. Fully licensed and insured.

    Janine’s love of dogs shows as she welcomed Alfie in for his weekend stay. He played with the other dogs and came home happy and tired

    Janine was so kind and understanding when we asked her at very short notice to have Lily for us. Lily enjoyed her few days away with Janine and all the new doggie friends she met. Lily can’t wait to go back. Thank you Janine and woof from Lily 🐶🐾
