About David

Since retiring as a headteacher I now have plenty of spare time on my hands. Rachel & I have had, or cared for, dogs in the past including lurchers, dachshunds, airedales, west highland terriers, Welsh springers, cocker spaniels, cockapoodles, miniature schnauzers, Tibetan terriers, boxers, Labradors & many others.
We usually only take one dog at a time to give complete personal attention to your pet. We will, however, take 2 or more dogs from the same household subject to a satisfactory meet and greet.
You can rest assured your dogs will love being with us in our detached country cottage.
We live in a beautiful village surrounded by quiet lanes and plenty of wonderful dog walking areas. We're also near the Quantock Hills and, with the owners consent, I we are happy to take your dog for walks both here and on the beaches at Burnham on Sea, Brean & Weston ( subject to restrictions).
Do give us a try & you'll not be disappointed.
We can offer the following services:

    Asha seemed to have a great time and we had peace of mind on our holiday knowing she was safe and happy. Thanks for all the updates and photos - it was great seeing her enjoying her walks and cuddles!

    Thanks for the lovely review Zita. We enjoyed having Asha stay with us - she is a special and much loved and well cared for dog. We hope to see you all again sometime. Best wishes. David & Rachel.

    This is the first time we had left our dog with a dog minder and was anxious. Why did I worry? David sent us regular updates and photos so we could see Lucie was happy with him. When we went to collect her she jumped back on the sofa and settled down. That says it all really. I would not hesitate to recommend David and Rachel to anyone. A real home from home where dogs are truly loved and cared for. I am delighted that we have found such a lovely couple to take care of our dog whilst we are away. Will definately use David again. Thank you David and Rachel. Andrea, Graham and Lucie

    Thanks Andrea for such a glowing review which is much appreciated. Lucie really is, most definitely, a delightful Tibetan terrier with the sweetest of natures. We look forward to seeing her again in the future. Many thanks. David & Rachel

    Thanks to David and Rachel for looking after my two dogs so well. I received plenty of updates and photos and was able to relax knowing they were in good hands. I will definitely be using David again. Thank you both. Helen, Taz and Blackjack.

    Many thanks Helen for such a lovely review. Taz & Blackjack were great dogs to have staying with us & so well behaved - a real credit to their owner. We'd love to have them back at any time!
