Please read my reviews from my clients for their veiws on my work. I offer 24hr dog boarding, day care, animal transportation, pet sitting and advice. I began an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Managment, but have been unable to progress this due to constant work.
I've previously worked in children's services. I have 3 rescue greyhounds, Callahan - 10 yrs, Angel - 4 yr old exracer, and Ali our new 3yr old pup. Cal is a sociable, laid back, dog but can be grumpy when laid down, as he's developing cataracts and ongoing feet problems. He mostly sleeps! Angel is bossy and may seem aggressive at first but does get on with all other dogs (so far). Ali is a young dog, and loves to play, but can be boisterous . Small, nervous dogs/pups would be unsuitable.
I've completed an animal first aid course & I'm an experienced first aider. I live in a small village & have access to long country walks.
I am council licenced for 5 boarding dog families & treat all animals with respect and dignity. I specialise in Greyhounds & I'm increasing my experience with other breeds, & advocate non adversarial training for dogs (not punishment led- positive re-enforcement).
This is a non smoking, child free environment.
New guests MUST meet & greet before a booking AT LEAST a week before the booking so the dogs can become acquainted & owners are happy with the accommodation. All dogs MUST be chipped, and neutered, with ID tags. NO STRUCTURED 'WALK' IS IMPLIED OR GUARANTEED DURING THE BOOKED PERIOD, HOWEVER THE DOGS WILL RECEIVE ADEQUATE EXCERCISE.
I live in a bungalow with a large secure garden & I am able to transport pets in my air conditioned DOGGYMOBILE!
Dogs under 2yrs need extra supervision so I (may) charge £2 extra per day for them.
Rates can also change depending on circumstances (Xmas & New Year holidays are double time).
