About Derek

I am an active retired 58 year old.My wife and I were devoted dog owners for 16 years and for the past 18 months have been looking after friends dogs on an occasional basis and have realised that we miss the company a dog can offer.We live in a smoke free, adult-only bungalow with a large secure garden and would only board one dog at a time but would consider two small/medium dogs from the same family.If your dog is used to relaxing on the sofa or sleeping on the bed we are happy to allow this.
We are happy to provide a pick up and or drop off service if required

    I got stuck in traffic and was going to be late for a meeting if I had travelled to Derek's place. He very kindly drove to my meeting place. Saved me the stress. Thanks Derek.
