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.

    First time our dogs have stayed with Heather and the last. She gave up our dogs within less than. 24hours because our dog went for a students living with her. Our dog is the least aggressive dog you would ever meet and frightened of his own shadow. Feel let down big time. Would not be using or recommending

    If people read all my reviews they will see that we've never such a situation before. We were as shocked as you at what happened and we had no alternative but to call the emergency contact and make arrangements for the dogs to be placed elsewhere, for their sake as well as the safety of our houseguests. My local Animal Welfare Officer is in complete agreement. No-one is more sorry than I am at the outcome of this booking, as a result I am financially down at my busiest time and have a less than happy customer. Would I have risked this if it weren't a serious situation?

    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.
