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.

    What fantastic service. I would highly recommend Gordon and his wife as first class dog sitters. Minnie was extremely well cared for and we had no concerns when we dropped her off that she would be in very safe, capable hands. We will certainly be using Gordon's services again. Thank you both so much, well deserve a 5 star rating

    We really had trouble in letting Anne have Minnie back as she is such a little Darling. We hope to see her many time in the future. Thank you, Shelaigh

    This was the first time Hattie had been looked after while we were away. She was completely comfortable and at home. It made such a difference going away and knowing she was so well looked after. Gordon sent us a message to say she'd settled in well which was so thoughtful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gordon (& Sheila) to anyone and will definitely be calling on them again. Lovely people and a real find!
