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 do not accommodate "cages".

    Our 7 month old labrador, Ziggy, stayed with Gordon and Shelagh for a long week end. It was the first time she had been left so a bit stressful but Gordon was very welcoming and thorough in his preparation for her stay and sent us a reassuring tect when we were away and Ziggy obviously had a happy time being well cared for. All in all a good experience for owners and dog. Gordon could not have been more helpful and was particularly accommodating in our collection time, making our return from Edinburgh less stressful. .

    Gordon and Shelaigh cared for our little Sprocker for two nights. From our first meet and greet, it was obvious that everything would be done to ensure she was well looked after. The updates were welcome and she was obviously making the most of her time away, snuggled up on the bed and with Molly who was also staying. We have already booked her in again for September. Thank you both.

    We had a very warm welcome and thorough meet and greet with Alfie upon our first contact. It was immediately clear to us that Gordon and Sheila are dog lovers and would take great care of our beagle. They made sure that Alfie's stay was like a home from home and we would certainly book again!
