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".

    Gizzy was well looked after by Gordon and Shiela a real home from home experience for him as not been left before. The updates were great to receive whilst away knowing that everything was ok. Will certainly use them again when I go away such caring people to leave your pooch with. Thank you so much from Gizzy xx

    Bones had a wonderful time with Gordon and Sheila and we felt so happy leaving him in such a caring and beautiful home. We received the messages reassuring us all the time and it was lovely to know Bones was so happy. Thank you both for looking after our little man so well.
