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 15 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!!

    Our young river had an amazing time. She loved playing with Sheilas houseguest penny and her own 2 dogs. Sheila made us feel at ease leaving our pup with her and I'm sure river had the time of her life.

    Cersei has a lovely time and was exhausted from all the interaction with the other dogs. She loved the company and Shelia was perfect x

    This was the first time ever I have left my Annie who is only 18months old .. Sheila settled any fears I had from the moment I step into her beautiful home .. Annie took to her & her lovely fur baby’s immediately. I missed her very much but I never for one moment worried that she wasn’t being showered with love ,care & attention- the pics & lil video the children & I loved - Truly Thanku Sheila u were a godsend & I wouldn’t hesitate to leave Annie in ur capable hands in the near future . You better be available! Lool :) Xx
