About Heather

Please check my Dog Buddy calendar for dates still available.

LICENSED BY EASTLEIGH BOROUGH COUNCIL (Always ask to see proof of this from dog boarders). Experienced in caring for many breeds of dogs, for over 20 years. I am able to care for SMALL sized dogs, from tiny Yorkshire Terriers to Dashies, Pugs and all breeds in between (as well as Heinz 57 varieties!).

I live in central Eastleigh with my husband John, in a modern, roomy, 3 bedroom townhouse. We have a safe enclosed back garden for the dog to enjoy. For walking we have a long tree-lined road (they love to stop and sniff each and every one). Then onto the local cemetery which is dog friendly, providing bins for dog waste. If the dog needs a longer walk there is a huge area near Fleming park. I will always endeavour to keep to the individual dog's routine (walks, feeding time etc). I will care for your dog like he/she was my own. Bathing or grooming if necessary and permitted. See Heather's Hounds on Facebook for more pictures.

* I should respectfully add that in accordance with licensing rules I need to see evidence from their Vets confirming ALL of the dogs inoculations and flea/worming treatments are fully up to date. THIS IS FOR ANY DOG BEING BOARDED.

* Please note, I regularly have visits from my grandchildren ages ranging from 2 to 16 years. If you don't think your dogs are good with kids then maybe I'm not the sitter for you. The children themselves are all well used to being around dogs.

    As always Heather was superb, sending messages and pictures of Sweep. I certainly do not have any reservations about leaving Sweep in the care of Heather. I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you Heather

    Thanks for the feedback Pat. As always, Sweep was no trouble at all...in fact just the opposite....lovely little fellow.

    Once again Heather looked after Copper excellently, would definitely recommend Heather to anyone. We always worry about leaving Copper where he is a rescue dog and can be hard work but Heather goes out of her way to reassure us he is ok by keeping in touch regularly. Many thanks again to Heather

    Heather provides a real home from service. We couldn't have asked for more. She kept us updated with pictures and videos which was so reassuring as this was Archie's first stay and he seemed very content in his new surroundings. Heather went the extra mile by even bathing Archie the day before we picked him up. Many thanks again Heather and we will be more than happy to recommend you and book Archie with you again
