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

    Seamus has had another great stay over, he's getting better in the car too - Derek's coaching working wonders ;) Lot's of video and photo updates showing how contented & settled he is, making him so welcome, I'm not surprised Derek & Angela are always booked up! Thank you again!

    Coco and Boone have just had their 3rd stay with Derek and Angela, for two nights. It's home from home for them now. They run in eagerly and are not bothered when we leave :). Derek sent us lots of videos and photos. Lots of playfighting, and musical chairs!, which shows they are happy and relaxed. I've said before, we are so happy we have found Derek. He really shows his love of dogs in the videos.

    Seamus just back from his 2nd stay with Derek & Anglea, he had a great stay again, I'm sure if he could talk he would say so, but I can tell from all the photo and video updates that he was totally at ease with them - they now know all his quirky little habits :) Definitely 5 star care! Thanks again.
