About Tracy

Dogs are a family passion going back to my younger days when my mum bred miniature dachshunds. We are now lucky enough to work with dogs full time offering a home from home dog sitting service.

Vicky our daughter gave up her job to take over most of the hands on time with the dogs. She is an experienced handler who spends her free time doing obedience with Skye her Jack Russell. She spends her days out in the garden playing with the dogs, doing some basic training when needed and ensuring they have a great time when they stay with us.

Bill gets out into the garden with the dogs at least a couple of times a day too, when his job is to throw the ball. He is also a member of the Brigg Mutley Crew Flyball team and regularly competes with Ruby.

We have a large farmhouse kitchen with an aga so the dogs are all very happy when they snuggle down for a rest and when its raining.

We look after a range of dogs from day care to our longest stay which was 5 weeks, treating all dogs as if they were our own. Its easy to see how much dogs have enjoyed their stay with us as we frequently see owners having to carry their dogs out of the gate when they refuse to leave.

We don't want you to spoil your holidays worrying about your dogs so send regular photos and videos of the dogs during their stay using WhatsApp.

    Once again Jinky and Snoopy seem to have a lovely 'holiday' of their own with Tracy, Bill and Vicky. They always come home happy, healthy and relaxed so we have total peace of mind whilst we're away. Thank you!

    Dotty had a great time with Tracy, Vicky and their doggy gang and is still worn out today! Thank you for the video of her cooling down in the paddling pool, really nice to know that she was having fun while we were away. She thinks it's really boring at our house now and can't wait to come back!
