About Leyla

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 am now a stay at home mum with loads of spare time to spend looking after dogs.
Having a dog/s cared for in a home kennel 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 wonderful place for dog walks.
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 am available for short stays and 1-2 weeks holidays throughout most of the year.
My service is only available to 2 dogs at any one time ensuring good quality care and attention to individual needs.

For summer stays, 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.

We do offer stays in the family home for 1 dog only. These stays are very popular and it is advisable to book well in advance. A home stay is £25 per day/night.

    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.

    Lovely Leyla, took fantastic care of our Bulldog Frankie and loved and welcomed her into their family, like one of their own; providing us with lots of regular photo updates and communications. Frankie has stayed on two occasions now, both times for about 9 to 10 days. We would highly recommend Leyla without any hesitation. She is extremely knowledgable about dogs and we were able to go off on our holidays totally trusting that Frankie was in good hands.

    Leyla and her family looked after our puppy Saffy for a week whilst we were away and she was fantastic. Saffy had a wonderful time, was well looked after and cared for. She got on really well with Rocco too. Leyla kept us regularly updated with lots of photos throughout the week. It was lovely to see what she was up to whilst we were away. Thanks Leyla!
