About Melanie

Please note that all dogs MUST be fully house trained as they are allowed the freedom of the house.

We have always owned dogs and since moving to a quiet residential bungalow with a large garden backing onto the local woods, decided it would be nice to look after other peoples dogs while they were away. I would never put my own dog into a kennel and feel there are many people out there who want a home from home experience for their pet. No bars or cages, just free to roam the house and garden and join in the hustle and bustle of a family home. 2 walks a day in the woods backing onto the house and the prospect of a furry playmate or two!
