About Leyla

Welcome, ( It is illegal to home board dogs without a license.Rest assured we are fully licensed )
We are a family who are just mad about dogs. We all get involved and make sure that any dog who comes to stay with us has their own holiday filled with fun, love, walks and great care.
Having grown up with dogs all my life I love them with such a passion. I am a retired teacher and Head and now spend my time looking after dogs.
Having a dog/s cared for in our home or our bespoke lodgings with love, walks and company makes this a wining choice.
We have a big soppy Rottweiler who sleeps most of the time. Meet and greets are proving too much for him now although he very much loves the company of other dogs. So we meet and greet you and your dog/s where we can interact and find out all your dog/s needs and they catch up with Rocco when things are calmer.
We live on Ipswich Rd with a gorgeous 120 ft secure garden and we are on top of High Woods a great place for walks.
Our brilliant daughter is studying to be a Vet. I am qualified in First Aid for Dogs, I am also studying a level 2 exam in grooming.
Your dog will spend a wonderful time as part of our family either in the home or in our small exclusive lodgings (Apr-Oct only) which are set in a beautiful shaded part of the garden in among the silver birch and plum trees, they are cool and quiet, where your dog/s can feel relaxed and safe. Your dog/s will enjoy all the comforts of staying with us, as part of the family, roaming the house and garden and will sleep in the lodgings at night. Morning walk with breakfast is between 7.30-10.30 Your dog/s can then roam as they please with an afternoon/evening walk cuddles in front of the TV then bed at 10.00. The lodgings are very popular with families who have 2 or more guests and less sociable dogs. Our lodgings are with lighting, heating, luxury bedding and curtains that pull to keep cozy at night.
Home stays sleep indoors.

    Leyla is nutty for dogs!! Alfie had a marvellous day and loved playing with the other dogs, he had two big walks, and Leyla sent me lots of pictures all day. Only downside is that Leyla’s insurance means she can’t let the dogs off the lead. Alfie was very tired after so the walks on the lead and playtime were enough but a small downside nonetheless. I felt very comfortable leaving Alfie with Leyla and would do so again.

    Charley’s day with Leyla was great. She settled quickly, had two lovely walks and came home to us bright, cheery and contented. We are really pleased; many thanks Leyla and Family
