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

    Derek took great care of Betty. It was clear that he loves and understands dogs. He took her on lots of long walks. I loved the video & text updates and had no worries as I knew she was in safe hands. I would use Derek again.

    Derek is absolutely amazing. From the minute he was introduced to my dog I knew my dog was in safe hands. Derek's passion for animals is very apparent. My dog was instantly comfortable around Derek & easily went with him. The updates via texts & videos are just amazing👍 not only am I having an amazing holiday, my dog Google is too😀I would not hesitate to recommend Derek to anyone. He made his home a very happy place for my dog & certainly made him welcome. Thank you Derek. I would certainly recommend booking your DogBuddy services to anyone. I am already planning more stress free bookings👌🏼 One very happy customer!!!!!
