About Jean & John

The most important thing I can tell you is that I have a passion for caring for dogs, I have my own dogs, a Staffordshire bull terrier named Lucky, a Pug/Shih Tzu named Bailey and a Pug named Alice. My daughter and son both have Pugs named Caesar and Tia. Tia has recently given birth to 5 baby pugs. The reason I am informing you of this is that most (not all) of my experience will be easier to refer to them personally. I have always had dogs, in my lifetime I have raised a German Shepherd and Spaniels but have also cared for Mongrels, Jack Russell’s, a Labrador and a sheepdog. I do not necessarily have a preference I find all of them unique in their own way; just like children they have their own personalities. Not only have I had experience with my own pride and joys but I regularly care for others, when their owners are at work

I believe one of the most important things to consider when caring for dogs is that they are just like people; they have regular eating times, always have access to water. My dogs have daily walks over the park, or when weather does not permit we have exercise sessions in the house, by playing fetch, chase and performing little tricks. I have trained them all from puppies so this seems to work well for us. Although all of my dogs require general grooming including nail trimming, baths and hair trims Bailey requires the most, she needs haircuts weekly and is groomed on a daily basis.

As Tia breeded puppies and I had my own for so long, there have been times of which I have needed to administer medicine, Caesar suffers from acid reflux and therefore needs to medicate daily. Lucky is a survivor of cancer and I cared for her throughout her treatments. Tia recently gave birth to 5 puppies and since has been treated for Mites. Ensuring that all five puppies were feeding and growing appropriately was crucial. Tia had a natural birth at home and I was extremely aware of the importance of the cleanliness,

    My two were very welcomed into their home as if they have known them for ages. Had freedom to roam to settle in. Totally spoilt and was able to leave them both with peace of mind. Kept up to date by messages and short videos of their day. Lovely couple too. Dogs will definitely be having another visit soon.

    Wow - what a find! Jean and John were brilliant with my puppy. Honey came back tired and happy. Jean sent me a video of Honey having fun with Jean's dogs which was a lovely touch. They are lovely people who clearly love, love, love dogs.

    My two Jack Russell's are a handful, but were cared for perfectly by Jean and John. Two very happy dogs and one very happy owner. Happy to recommend them to anybody. Jean sent pics of the dogs to re-assure me during their stay which was a nice touch. Very pleasant people and will be using them again
