About Gordon

Our Animal Welfare Licence number is AWL 0012 5 Star rating awarded by St Edmundsbury B.C.
We have always had dogs about the house and bred Whippets for many years. My Wife and I are now retired and 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 garden 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.
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".

    So pleased we found Gordon and his wife Sheila to look after our dog, Bella. We don’t think it would be possible to find a nicer couple and our dog could not have been in better hands. Thank you both very much.

    We are really appreciate to meet Gordon and her lovely wife. It was the first time that we left our girl, that is why, we had some concerns until we met them. She stayed with them for a week and was quite happy and comfortable. We are sure about that, she felt like at her own home. Thank you for your hospitality and care. We would like to see you soon again. :)

    Thank you for your lovely review. Kopuk is a lovely gentle giant and so good with the other little guests which we had at the same time. We look forward to the next visit and you are all very welcome.

    Gordon and his lovely wife were fantastic! Like in Nala's own home if not better. Nala easily gets worried, but she really enjoyed her self and was really confident and had a fun stay meeting her BFF. We'll definitely book Gordon again and so glad we found someone to trust Nala with just having moved in to the area. x

    Nala is a Darling. She settled in immediately and did not show any sign of nervousness. We are so pleased to have had her to stay and look forward to her staying with us in the future.
