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

    Thank you so much Derek! He is by far the best dog minder we've ever had and we've known quite a few over the years! We can go away in future knowing that Zola & Otto will have a wonderful time and be very looked after by extremely capable hands. With the multiple pics & videos per day, we never had a moments concern and felt connected throughout being apart. Thank you both so much! We would not dream of leaving them with anyone else from here on in! We truly appreciate the tremendous care you both gave the dogs. Thanks again Derek & Angela.

    Big thanks to Derek for looking after Bear today. First time I've left him with a dog sitter today and was great to receive all the videos and photos of Bear throughout the day. It definetly made me feel relaxed about leaving Bear. He's came home and his super sleepy from his active day. Thanks again Derek.

    Roxy's first time with Derek and Angela, and she loved it - one tired and content puppy! Good walks, lots of play and care and attention. Will happily book again. Thanks for keeping us updated with such nice pics and videos too. Cheers!
