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".

    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.

    Gordon and Sheleigh looked after our dalmatian Frankie for a week. It was our first time leaving Frankie with anyone outside the family, but she had a wonderful time! She came home so happy and relaxed, and we could enjoy our break knowing she was having a fab time playing with the other dogs and being looked after by some really lovely people. We'll definitely book with Gordron again, and would recommend to anyone!

    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.
