About marion

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.

WEEKEND STAY AND CHARGES:
Depending on the calendar, I am available Friday evenings (from around 6.30pm) through to Sunday evenings. £20 fee is for overnight and up to 24 hours. If you wish to collect your dog after 24 hours another day care fee will be charged.

DURING THE WEEK AFTER WORK DOG WALKS:
Please just message me and we can arrange times, normally from around 6.30pm onwards.

WEEKEND DOG WALKS:
Please just message me, im flexible.

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.

    We were quite nervous about leaving our boys with anyone after having a bad experience with a kennel but Marion instantly put our minds at ease when our very anxious dog took straight to her, she sent us pictures and updates throughout the two days while we were away which kept my partner very happy as he was missing them, it made both of us so much happier knowing they were comfortable with her and there was nothing she wouldn't do to make them happy while they were with her, we will definitely be using her services again in the future, my boys will definitely be excited to go back!

    Thank you so much for your really lovely review Amy. I must admit i was pleasantly surprised when Archie (the nervous one) took a running leap into my arms while we were still introducing ourselves hahaha. How lovely was that! Good job I'm a good catch!! I thoroughly enjoyed having them both, they pretty much wanted nothing more than to play and to be cuddled (it was a bit challenging when they both jumped on my lap at once, but the three of us managed the group hug) and they loved their walks in the forest. I really hope they come back again .
