About Elaine

I've recently retired from my job as a special needs teacher and wanted to do something totally different. I've always loved dogs and had them years ago but due to work commitments did not want to leave one alone all day. I would treat your dog as if it were my own. I live in a lovely house with a large secure garden and am lucky to be close to a river and the countryside with some lovely walks so we will have fun! You can go away assured that your little darling will be well cared for. I'm happy to have your dog stay for anywhere between a day to a month, it's your choice.

    We left our German shepherd Jess for the first time with Elaine and, all in all, it was a very easy experience. Elaine is lovely and took good care of our dog and we hope to be using her services again in the near future.

    Thanks Anna glad you were pleased with my services. Jess is an absolute darling and I would be more than happy to have her visit again.

    Monty, my elderly Great Dane, is usually very stressed in kennels, doesn't eat and takes a while to settle again when he comes home. He has coped well with his stay with Elaine; he ate all of his food and settled back at home as if he had never been away! I felt very confident leaving him in Elaine's care and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a better alternative to kennels for their pets.

    Teddy loved his time with Elaine and we were very happy with the whole experience. She looked after our little boy brilliantly and we wouldn't hesitate to leave him with Elaine again in the future
