About Tracey

I've had a home full of dogs for 30 years but, after losing my beloved Gemma, I have found that offering to look after your precious little bundle will give me my required dose of doggy-love. I've shared my life with dogs of all sizes but I'm afraid that I can only take in smaller breeds (I'm a small-breed myself!). There are no other animals in my house and I'm licenced by East Riding Council (for a maximum of 2 dogs, from the same home).

Part of my reasoning for only taking small dogs is that I try and put their health and safety first. So I need to be able to carry a dog back home from a walk (if there's been an accident) or give CPR etc. I have Public Liability Insurance.

I do tend to be quite heavily booked up to a year in advance, mostly because I have a number of regulars who have families that travel fairly frequently. May to September are my busiest times.

Having said that, off season I can often be flexible enough to help you out with any family emergencies (so long as I don't have other dogs present) and have a fairly large, safe and secure rear garden with a slope up to the lawn (for older citizens).

On the street I prefer to walk on a lead as there are too many interesting smells in my village (and a lot of dogs) and chasing round my garden should add to their exercise regime.

I have gained a fair amount of experience, over the years, have a canine first aid certificate and a Distinction grade in BCCS First Aid Diploma, Distinction and BCCS Dog Behaviour Diploma and am currently training at a more advanced, diploma, level in dog health & nutrition.

I've found that prevention is better than cure and that the best approach is to keep anything sharp or dangerous out of the way and, apart from wooden flooring, my house and garden are very dog friendly.

    She is the best and our baby loves her so much. It's like home from home for our dog, Regret sharing this as we may loose our holiday time for our dog to be with Tracey.

    Thank you. Missing that gorgeous little happy face already. I even missed having my ears licked this morning!. I'd say give her a kiss from me, but I suspect the Little Princess is being covered in them already. T

    We have a very nervous dog who had only ever stayed with family members before, but I think he enjoyed staying with Tracey more! Tracey was kind and patient with Milo, who sometimes takes a while to settle or eat his food, and the amount of attention he got over his stay was lovely. It was also great to get regular updates and photographs so we could see how well he'd settled, as it meant we could enjoy our trip in the knowledge that Milo was being very well cared for. Thank you so much Tracey.

    Thank you, Sue. I'm not sure which of us got more grubby...but we had a lot of fun and I'm almost certain the neighbours didn't hear me play growling with him. Happy to be your standby for family ;o)) Tracey
