About Nigel

My name is nigel I'm a retired retailer with a love for all animals dogs and donkeys especially!!
I have always had dogs in my life and until recently I was lucky enough to share my life with two rhodesian ridgebacks so larger dogs are very welcome.for a long time now I have been looking after friends and neighbours pets whilst they have been away, cos so many of us now don't like to use kennels.
I live in a small cottage in a quiet village in Cheshire. I have a modest safe garden but the big advantage is I am on the doorstep of marbury country park which is dog paradise,complete with lake,woodlands and many friends to meet and greet.
I now have a small puppy Ted he is a little black cross breed and is very cute,he loves the company of all the dogs that come and stay and he certainly misses them when he is on his own.

    This was the first time we have left Ozzie overnight with a dog sitter. We found that Nigel had a real connection with the dogs in his care and felt that Ozzie would be well looked after. This proved to be the case and would not hesitate to use Nigel in the future. Highly recommended!

    First time using Dog Buddy and everything straightforward. Selected Nigel from owners reviews and number of repeat clients and we were not disappointed as we felt our Welsh Springer Spaniel was in safe hands. Our 16 month old puppy stayed for two nights as a trial ahead of a forthcoming holiday (she is already booked in again with Nigel). She returned tired and slept for hours after playing with the other doggy guests. Happy to recommend Nigel and his dog safe home. Gill & Steve
