About Leyla

Welcome to my Dog Buddy site, 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 a holiday filled with fun, love, walks and great care.
I have grown up with dogs all my life and love them with such a passion. I am a retired teacher and Head Mistress and now spend my time looking after dogs.
Having a dog/s cared for in our home or our bespoke kennel ( summer months only) with love and walks and company makes this a win win for both. I am very experienced with dogs having owned 3 Rottweilers, sadly they passed away last year and I have since rescued a big soppy Rottweiler who sleeps most of the time now days.
I live on the Ipswich Road with a wonderful 120 foot secure garden and I am on top of High Woods a great place for dog walks.
My wonderful daughter is studying to be a Vet and she wants to Master in Dog psychology, so she gets very much involved with settling down and giving extra care to those who might get a little stressed on arrival.
Summer stays, ( May-Sept maximum 2 dogs)I have a lovely spacious kennel, furnished with soft luxury bedding and pillows for extra sleeping comfort. The kennels are clean and welcoming and are 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, but will sleep in the kennel at night. Morning walk with breakfast is between 7.30-8.30 Your dog/s can then roam as they please with an afternoon/evening walk (dependent on the weather) cuddles in front of the TV then bed at 10.00.
I use Whats App and it can easily be down loaded on your phone. It enables me to send pictures and messages to you at home or abroad and is free to use.
I only take 1 dog to stay in our home in order to give maximum care and attention.

    Squidge had an amazing time with Leyla and her family. As soon as we met Leyla we could tell she is a kind and lovely person with a real passion for dogs. We couldn't have left him in better hands and I would not hesitate to recommend Leyla to anyone looking for a home-from-home stay for their dog. My 2 little boys really looked forward to the photos of Squidge having fun and messages that were sent to us on while we were away - such a sweet touch. Leyla will definitely be both mine and Squidge's number 1 choice when we go away again!

    Leyla and her family where brilliant with my dog Rambo. It was the first time I had left him with anyone. Leyla was lovely warm hearted person and gave us regular updates, video/photos on Rambo. I could text or ring her anytime. I have found a dog sitter for life. My dog fell in love with leyla’s son Henry he was so good with Rambo. Excellent service. Thank you Leyla xx

    Our dogs had a great time with Leyla and family. They were as great with the old spaniel as they were with the enthusiastic crazy pup. Regular photos and updates meant we knew that all was well and could enjoy our holiday with confidence that our pets were in good hands. We would definitely use there services again and have no hesitation in recommending Leyla to anyone considering a dog sitter.
