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:

    This was first time I had left Dylan with any dog sitter and naturally very concerned as he is still really a puppy. I need not have been worried . David was brilliant. I had loads of lovely pictures and updates with Dylan looking really chilled .My worries quickly dispelled. Dylan settled really well and that was all down to David. It really is home from home. Highly recommend. Thank you again for your care and kindness.

    Thanks very much for the really lovely review. We loved having Dylan to stay with us and he quickly became a much loved friend and guest. He is welcome back anytime!

    This is the second time we have left Lucie with David. We went away with total peace of mind knowing she would be well looked after which she was. It was a real holiday for her. David took her out and about and I suspect totally spoilt her. She came home a happy and contented dog. Many thanks to David and Rachel for everything they did to make sure Lucie had a great time. We look forward to seeing you again.

    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!
