Add To Wish List

I have a pair of very friendly loving and funny Jack Russell terriers. Scooby & Tilly. They get along well with other dogs.
I am a retired lady and live in a lovely town house in Upton, Chester. I have a patio garden to the rear and a balcony upstairs to the front of my house. There is also a dog flap in my back door leading to the small garden area.
I thoroughly enjoy long walks with my dogs, I am out and about around the lovely countryside of Chester, Cheshire and North Wales. A typical day is minimum of 2 hours for a walk only booking.
Perhaps 3-4 hours for day sit booking.
It will be a day out of more than 4 hours for dogs staying with me overnight.(Dog's must be able to go in my car. I have harnesses and seat belts.
Also a short walk, last thing at night for a toilet break is offered.
I am happy to administer medications if required.

Sending pictures of our walks and your dog whilst you are away via whatsapp/viber/messenger or email, will give you reassurance that your pet is enjoying their break, so that you can relax and enjoy yours too.
Home from Home is what I aim for.
I only take a single dog at a time OR a pair of dogs at a time from the same owner for boarding.

I am very happy for anyone interested to come and meet me and Scooby & Tilly. We can have a chat and a cup of tea to see if our dog's get along.
I will also give a questionnaire to fill in about your dog's prefences & current vaccinations & vets details etc. It is preferable that your dog has had the Kennel cough vaccination as have mine.

I am insured.

If you need "occasional help" with walks or dog day care I can help you out.

    Jaspa and Poppy have just returned from their weekend with Dianne, we can't thank her enough. They have come back absolutely shattered, and have obviously loved it. Arranging the stay was easy from the word go, and Dianne was very accommodating. It was so nice to see the photographs of each day with a little message of what they were getting up to. We will definitely use Dianne again, outstanding service, 2 happy dogs and 2 very happy owners. Many thanks!

    Diane looked after my two dogs for a week very recently. I would certainly leave them both with her again as she made them very welcome. They were well cared for and seemed to have settled very quickly into the home from home routine. Thanks Diane
