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 excellent. I went away completely sure that my precious boys would be well looked after and when I picked them up today they had clearly had a great time. Thank you for the care you gave my boys will definitely use your service again.

    So happy with Sheila. I was worried that my dogs wouldn't settle but Sheila really made them feel welcome and sent photos and a video of them to reassure me. Will definitely be using her again. Thanks Sheila

    Thank you Gina. It was lovely having them. I was pleased with how they settled considering how nervous they were 🐶

    Can't thank Sheila enough! Our dog is quite nervous and timid especially when in a new environment but Sheila and her family made Bailey feel at home and also kept in touch with us throughout her stay sending photos and videos. I highly recommend her, she will treat your pets like her own! Thanks again. Clare
