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 had another great holiday with Derek & Angela, the video & photo updates showing him making himself at home & making friends with the locals on lots of walks is great! 🐶🐕😁

    Had to cancel booking because of personal issue, but Derek was very understanding and accommodating. Got impression he was really looking for our visit, so will organise another one soon!

    Once again Hugo had a great stay with Derek and Angela. This time it was for a bit longer than previous visits yet Hugo was still totally happy and relaxed - we could see this thanks to lots of video and photo updates from Derek via Dogbuddy which was nice. We felt totally reassured and know he is in great hands when with Derek, with lots of walks and attention. He is coming for another stay in a couple weeks, which he's already looking forward to :-) Thanks so much!!!
