About Mark

I'm an experienced dog owner who can also offer dog training and development coaching for new owners with their own dogs; I've successfully trained my own working dogs over many years. We have a large house and plenty of secure outdoor space for dogs to play and socialise. Situated on the edge of a marke town we step out of the front door straight into Dorset countryside and a river. Plenty of vets nearby if care is needed. Also, we are happy to arrange collection and drop off, as far away as London, Bristol and Birmingham. This is by negotiation and additional cost. Happy to discuss your needs and here to help you have a stress free time away from your pet(s). We have needed to leave our dogs with others before, so we know what you are looking for. Contact us and we will respond as quickly as we can. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks Mark for looking after Maddie and Alfie. Your relaxed manner suited us perfectly. The dogs too seemed to have felt at home. Couldn't have asked for any more. Fantastic!!

    Eddie had a great day playing with the family dog and trying out a paddle in the river on his walk. He was blissfully tired at the end of the day and it was beneficial for him to be with a dog a little older than himself as at 10 months he needs to be shown how things go! Thank you to Mark*s lovely daughter who was overseeing the day and trying to work on A levels!

    Mark saved our bacon - he took my sister's dog for the crucial days over Xmas when my sister was unwell enough to look after her. We were then able to go and spend a few days with our family in Kent. The dog had a lovely time and we wouldn't hesitate to ask Mark again.
