About Marika

We are family of 4 with two boys that love dogs, I always had dogs of my own but since I lost my last one I decided to help out families that have nowhere to leave their pet, and been looking after dogs for short or long stays the last 6 yrs. There is more than enough space around the house for little fur pals to run around as well as the rear garden and local park just down the road to stretch their little legs. We do have a preference for small dogs, but we have a female Labrador also staying often. If you are wishing to stay overnight or for several days we got you covered, we love playing, cuddling, and walking our doggy guests. We have a nice big garden and also go on walks to our local fields when weather permits.
Your dog would be in trusted hands with us and we are also able to give you references from families already using our services. Currently we are only able to provide care to small to medium dogs, up to 20lbs weight. Please notice in my profile the set times for dropping off and picking up your dog, Preferred times are before 9.30 am drop off and before 12 noon pick up

    This is the first time we've used a sitter as our dog is easily stressed and we expected a call not long after dropping her off to say come and get her! I'm pleased to say I was very wrong, Marika made Holly at home and kept us well updated, with pictures! Excellent service from start to finish, we'll definitely be asking you to look after Holly again!
