About Mealanie

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!

    Melanie made us feel at ease with leaving Dylan. It's the first time we have left him anywhere and it was nice he also had other cannine company. He seemed better than any other holiday we had taken him with us on as he doesn't like any thing out of his routine. So we will have no hesitation on booking again, Thank you Melanie for looking after Dylan while we were away. He loved it.

    Mealanie and her husband were lovely with our dogs who clearly were well looked after, and I felt completely reassured about leaving them for the first time ever! I've already recommended her and your service to loads of other guests at the wedding we were attending.
