About Lydia

I have grown up with dogs my whole life, caring for neighbours dogs, dogs of family friends and my own dog.
I know a lot of information about a lot of different breeds of dogs due to my 7 year old obsession with them and reading possibly every dog book known to man. I am capable and have experience in handling any dog of any size.
I live in a quiet cul de sac which has many country walks going in very direction.

I have looked after sick dogs, given medication and had to give 24/7 hour care before to a young dog that had come out of the vets after a series of operations.
Caring for dogs, checking stitches, cleaning up after them is not a problem at all and I’m happy to have your dog at mine or to come to yours, whichever puts your mind at ease and your furry baby!
I have completed a canine behaviour training course, I’m in tune with canine behaviour, noises and body language so would like to learn more.
Hopefully later on in life I can training, rehabilitate and caring for dogs 24/7

    Lydia was absolutely fantastic. We have a nervous and territorial rescue dog who is very wary of strangers. Lydia worked hard to gain his trust and did a brilliant job of looking after him and our cats. Thank you Lydia.

    Great communication and I was at ease knowing my dog was in good hands. Would recommend to anyone I know, my dog can be a handful and Lydia was perfect with her 5* if you're thinking about booking don't bother looking anywhere else!

    Lydia had our weimaraner Willow from the afternoon and overnight. Willow is not used to being left with a stranger but she took to Lydia straight away and had a lovely time. She was clearly happy when we collected her. The whole experience and communication was excellent from start to finish and we would certainly recommend Lydia to others. Thank you
