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

    Really happy with Derek and Ally loved him. Derek collected her and brought her back which was very good. I would certainly ask Derek to look after Ally again. Sandra

    Derek and Angela spend soooo much time with Jet and Toby! This is a real labour of Love! My dogs just love when Derek comes to pick them up, their tails wag whenever they see him and they are so excited when he puts them in his Car! They absolutely know they're in for a great Time! I do believe they look healthier and happier each time they've been to Derek's! It's great to see the videos he sends Us! An absolutely top class Service! Thanks again Derek and Angela! You are the Best!

    Derek was wonderful with Blue. We received many updates on how Blue was getting on and he was always getting cuddles, taking walks or playing in the garden. Will take Blue to visit again for sure.
