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

    Such a relief to have found Derek. He looks after our very anxious border terrier & gives her lots of cuddles. Love the video updates. Thank you again!

    Derek and Angela were wonderful carers for Rolo. She was relaxed and happy with them. They kept us up to date with Rolo’s activities with lots of videos. A big thank you from us and from Rolo!

    Brilliant home from home with lots of photos and info on how Alfie was doing and what he was up to. Derek and Angela made Alfie's first visit to them very enjoyable...think he wanted to stay longer. Highly recommend and thank you both 👍
