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".

    We were delighted with the welcome and care our two dogs received from Gordon and Sheila. The dogs immediately made themselves at home, bonded very quickly with Gordon who has an excellent understanding of dogs, and was able to manage whatever came up. Treated as one of the family the dogs were relaxed and at home when we went to pick them up. We would recemmend a stay here to any kennel weary canine.

    Very very pleased. I don't think our two greyhounds wanted to come home! Thank you very much Gordon & Shelaigh.

    It was lovely to look after two beautiful Formula 1 couch potatoes.

    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.
