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.
I am very experienced with dogs having owned 3 Rottweilers, sadly they passed away. We have since rescued a big soppy Rottweiler who sleeps most of the time now days.
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 and hopes to Master in dog psychology, so she gets very much involved. I am also qualified in First Aid for Dogs.
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 with Rocco in our spacious kitchen/living area.

    Leyla and her family looked after Saffy for us overnight on a weekend. She had a great time and we had regular updates so we could see her settle in. Thanks again and I wouldn't hesitate to book you in the future.

    Pippa had a lovely time and was made part of the family. We got photos everyday and Pippa was given a Christmas meal and a present from Layla. It looked like she really got on with Rocco too!
