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".

    This was Macie's second stay with Gordon and Shelaigh, they really do care about giving your dog a home from home experience. Again, she was well cared for and had a great time. She loved playing with the other dogs and apparently helped with some painting! :D We have no hesitation in recommending Gorden and Shelaigh and will definitely ask if they have any vacancy for Macie the next time we go away.

    Macie is a lovely Girl. We hope that her op goes well on Wednesday!

    An ‘outstanding’ from me too! Otto was extremely well cared for during his stay; and it was so reassuring that Gordon and Sheila are so well organised from the outset and caring in their approach, they really do try to make the stay a proper ‘home from home’. Otto was so relaxed and happy when I collected him, I knew he’d enjoyed his stay. it was great knowing he was in such good hands and I really appreciated the update messages so knew all was well. This was my first DogBuddy experience and have to say all the great reviews for Gordon are spot on, it was excellent. Would highly recommend and will hopefully book Otto in again for another stay. Thanks again Gordon and Sheila!

    Beau had a fabulous time and it definitely is a home from home holiday for any dog. Gordon and Shelaigh are the loveliest people and it is clear they adore dogs. Beau is already booked in for his next stay. I am so pleased I found them.
