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

    Amazing......Derek goes above and beyond to make sure your dog is looked after as if it were his own. This is the second time we have used Derek and will absolutly book Alfie in again. We had regular video message to see that our boy was happy and being well looked after. His routine was followed with plenty of walks . All Alfies needs were met and he was one very happy pug when we picked him up. If i could give more than five stars i would! Thanks again Derek.

    Thank you so much to Derek for looking after Maggie! We got updates and videos so we could see how she was getting on on. We really felt like she was in safe, caring hands and getting lots of attention. Would definitely book Derek to look after wee Mags again and am sure she'll be very happy to go back for her next visit!

    Vinnie had an amazing time with Derek & Angela. Derek went above and beyond in providing Vinnie with the home from home experience I was looking for. Vinnie is looking forward to his next stay in a few weeks and I'm content in letting him go back. We can't thank you both enough.
