About Kirsty

***** Due to the size of our home and our outside space we can only offer
day care to one small dog at a time.*****

Hi we are Kirsty and Tim and it is fair to say that we LOVE dogs!

Kirsty grew up in a home with dogs, of all breeds, shapes and sizes (!) and her grandpa was a pedigree Yorkshire Terrier breeder. So dogs have always been a part of her family!

We have a particular penchant for small, scruffy, often naughty (!) terriers. We were lucky to share our lives, for 9 years, with Bella, our miniature Schnauzer who was also our pack leader! She brought so much joy and so many doggy based shenanigans to our lives. But sadly she left our pack in November 2015, leaving us bereft and lost without the third member of our gang. Our house is very quiet without her and whilst we are not quite ready to welcome a new member to our pack, permanently, we would love to be able to open our home and lives to dogs, whilst their families are at work or on holiday!

We know all too well how traumatic the thought of leaving your pup can be! We can offer a home, away from home. Following your daily routine with lots and lots of extra snuggles and fuss!

Bella was a dog that never tired and we love being out and about so regular walks, go without saying! We have a small walled garden but your dogs daily exercise would be taken, out and about, in our beautiful corner of West Cornwall.

Unfortunately, due to the size of our home and our outside space we can only offer
day care to one small dog at a time. This means that your dog would have ALL of our attention for their stay!

We would recommend a meeting up in advance of a stay with us to ensure that everyone is happy and that your pup's routine can be discussed in detail, which we would ensure would be followed during their stay with us.

We are happy to answer any questions, in advance of a booking being made. But rest assured, your dog would have a whole heap of fun during a stay with us!

    Kirsty and Tim are a very friendly happy couple who took great care of our Springerpoo Stanley for us whilst we had a family day out at the Minack Theatre. Tim took him for a lovely country walk in the morning and he had lots of cuddles with Kirsty. Communication was great and they listened to Stanley's needs. We would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending them to anyone. Thank you guys. x

    What a lovely review - thank you! 🙂 We had such a fab time hanging out with Stanley for the day. He is the friendliest boy and a total joy to spend time with. We were sad when he left! If ever you need a DogBuddy, in West Cornwall again, we would love to have Stanley to stay! Cheers! Kirsty and Tim

    Kirsty and Tim are a lovely couple who took great care of our Shih Tzu for a day. They're communication before and during having Rusty was excellent. They asked lots of questions about Rusty so they knew what they were letting themselves in for and sent an update during the day with a picture by the sea. They clearly know the area well and we would be happy to recommend them and use them again ourselves. Thanks guys, Rusty and family x

    What a fab review - thanks so much 😊 We had such a lovely day with Rusty. He is such a great little guy and a total character. It was an absolute pleasure to have him hang out with us. We would love to have a repeat visit if ever you need a DogBuddy again! Cheers! Kirsty & Tim

    Kirsty and Tim were completely brilliant with Winnie, I’m so grateful to have found them at such short notice! Felt secure and worry free after speaking/meeting them and they looked after the pooch beautifully xx

    Winnie is such character and an awesome little chilled out guy. It was a total pleasure to have him for a sleep over! We look forward to his next stay which we hope is super soon! 🙂
