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".

    My dog was excellently looked after. Gordon and Shelagh did their very best to integrate Oscar when he arrived and in general they are very diligent in their approach to dog sitting. It was Oscar's first stay and I could tell when I picked him up that he'd had a great time!!

    Oscar was very happy and we enjoyed having him. Looking forward to his visit.

    My two dogs, Maisie and Scooby stayed for a week with Gordon and Shelagh. They were very well looked after and I would recommend them to any dog owner looking for a home from home setting. I wouldn’t hesitate for them to stay with them again.

    I would recommend anyone to consider Gordon for looking after their dog. Wesley was safe and happy. Gordon and his wife are lovely people and obviously love dogs and I know Wesley loves them back.

    Wesley is a dear boy and so well behaved. We absolutely loved him, and await his return.
