About marion

Your dog will be special as I only ever have one dog stay with me at any one time, unless they are both yours of course, unlike at a kennel.

Why should you trust me to look after your beloved dog? Because when you leave him/her with me while you go out for the day or off on a well earned break, you can be sure that I'll take care of him like he was my own because I know how precious they are to us. I have been brought up with dogs all my life as family pets. We then bought Ben, a gorgeous yellow labrador in 2003 as an 8 week old puppy (you can see Ben in some of the pictures). We totally adored him from the minute we got him but sadly he passed away a couple of years ago so we don't have a dog at home at the moment. I love walking in the countryside and would love nothing more than to take your dog with me. Thorndon Country Park is very close and I know it like the back of my hand. Equally, if your dog doesn't want to walk too far, that's fine too. Of course I'll be guided by your dogs needs or moods on the day! We also have a nice garden that he can run around in or sit in, in the sunshine, when the sun decides to come out. My aim is to make him happy, feel at home and want to come back.

On the day of collection, if collection time runs over 24 hours, another day care fee will be charged.

I am able to give medicine orally should your dog need it as our lab, over the years, has had a few issues so ive become competent at it.

Unfortunately I wont be able to take care of any Staffordshire/bull terrier breeds as I don't have experience in handling them.

I very much look forward to making your dog's stay a happy, fun and memorable one.

    My Bella stayed with Marion for 2 nights and she was so calm and settled she was taken for lots of great walks and I had some lovely pictures from Marion throughout the weekend that showed how happy and content Bella was which put my mind at ease. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Marion again she was fantastic.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review Emily. Bella is a gorgeous dog and made me laugh out loud when she did her elegant ballerina dance when i asked her if she wanted to go for a walk. She is sooo beautiful. Thank you for allowing me to look after her.

    I almost don’t want to give a good review in case Marion gets so booked up she can’t have my two again haha. We are over the moon with how well Marion cared for our little pooches. They were excited to see her each day and became complete lap dogs in no time which proves how happy and comfortable they were with her. We both felt at ease leaving them and would definitely do so again. Very happy customers (and two very happy pampered dogs) indeed- thank you Marion - Kat, James, Pat and Betty & Maggie xxxxx

    Wow thank you SO much Kat. I don't know what to say about your two girls except they are gorgeous and we had an amazing time together over the week. Yes, complete lapdogs haha . . . But both at the same time was a challenge however 😁. I love them and can't wait to see them again. I hope you had a wonderful holiday.

    We could not have wished for a better dog buddy than Marion. Our mad collie received lots of walks and affection throughout the day . He was so happy I am not sure he wanted to leave One very happy dog and owner

    Thank you so much for your very kind review Dominic. I must say he is a bundle of energy 😊 so we had some really good walks and lots of cuddles and he seemed very happy. Thank you so much for letting me look after him.
