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!!

    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

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Sheila she is a lovely lady and great with the dogs in her care. My German shepherd was very nervous and not used to spending time with other dogs but quickly adjusted. She kept me informed all the time and Rosie was very happy when I collected her.

    We left Sonny with Sheila for the second time and for ten days, we have to be really careful of who we leave Sonny with due to his dietary/medical requirements, however we do not worry when he is with Sheila as he seems to come back in better health than when we left him! We would 100% recommend Sheila, it is very clear to see that Sonny has had a great time and been very well looked after once again
