About Sheila

We are a busy family home with myself and three adult sons, living in a large home surrounded by land with plenty of large open spaces around for long walks. Close to the sea for those water loving canines who stay with us!

I have been around dogs and animals of all kinds my whole life, as have my family. You can rest assured that your beloved friend will be loved and cared for as if he/she were at home.

We all work but at differing times so there is a dog lover around for most of the day, ready with some fuss and attention, game playing or exercise.

Our own dogs are friendly and playful. Blaze is a cross collie/golden retriever, getting on a bit now at 14 but still up for a good walk and loves to chase a ball or retrieve a stick. Ted is a cross Yorkshire terrier/Chihuahua. Small in size but big on personality and vocal ability!!

    Shiela was fabulous as always. She had my boys for the day and was really flexible re pick up time which allowed me to enjoy my day out without worrying. My two dogs clearly really enjoy staying with her.

    My dog had a great time with Sheila. First time u was leaving him with someone and she made me feel comfortable and at ease leaving him in her hands! He was exhausted from all the fun he had with the other dogs! Will definitely use her again, thanks Sheila x

    Picked my two dogs up today after two weeks with Sheila.They were very well looked after and I had videos and photos to reassure me they had settled in just fine. Can highly recommend Sheila and I'm sure if my boys could speak they would agree.....even had my dogs blankets washed ready for me! Can't thank you enough Sheila......
