About Gordon

We have always had dogs about the house and bred Whippets for many years. My Wife and I are now retired and as we go away quite a lot, no longer have a dog of our own. Dog sitting gives us the pleasure of "borrowing" a dog from time to time.
We live in a small village and have a large "dog proof" back gargen where a dog can be safely let out to have free time. I like to walk and a dog for company adds to the pleasure.
Dog sitting in our home. We like to know exactly how your dog lives at home and will do our best to replicate that here even if your dog sleeps on the our bed (hopefully not too big!). We are proficient at medicating if needed. We are not able to accommodate "cages".

    A big thank you to Gordon and Sheila for taking care of Max when we went away. Max had a lovely time, was well looked after and received lots of loving attention. Gordon text messaged to keep us updated on how things were going. It is so reassuring to think that we can go away and enjoy a break knowing that Maxi Boy is in safe hands.

    Nothing but praise for Gordon - this is the fourth stay for our "girls" and a true home from home for them. They are happy to see Gordon and Shelaigh and check out the house on arrival before visiting the garden! We go away on our holiday knowing that they are also having a great time. 5 stars *****

    Great service. Lovely kind couple. Used Gordon as we were in the area for a few days and needed to visit somewhere that wasn't dog friendly. Quick responses were appreciated. Bella ( 10yr old Westie ) was well looked after, walked and fed ( and spoilt !! ). She had a great time - I think was a bit fed up we took her away. Thank you.
