About Yvette

A knowledgeable and kind lady who has had dogs her entire life would be happy to have your dog come and join the crew aboard. I do insist on a meet and greet before a dog boards with me. This is to ensure your dog will feel happy and secure during thier stay.
Currently just me and a very laid back friendly springer spaniel called Blue and bossy little cocker spaniel called Lexi living on our large comfy 70ft wide beam river barge. Entry is through a security gate, then down the gangway and then onto the pontoon. Easy access on and off boat with no stairs, similar to an apartment type environment. We have numerous friends dogs to stay as we like visitors, and now we are offering our home to your dog if you would prefer to leave them in a home, rather than a kennel !
Available for weekend sitting at short notice. I can do weekday holiday bookings if given enough notice as my career does allow for me to work from home.
The only restriction to staying on board is dog size, as there is a medium size dog flap to negotiate onto the aft deck, which is fully enclosed and dog safe. A raised platform on aft deck allows for doggy sunbathing and watching life on the river, but an umbrella provides shade if needed.
Nearby park and lovely walks on the Shotley peninsula are a daily occurrence via a short car ride. Your dog would be safe with a knowledgeable, reliable lady who assures you that your furry friend would be loved as a family member during their stay. Or if you prefer I can provide care for your dog in your own home. References and full DBS check available upon request. More photos can be found on my Facebook page WAGS ON WATER

    Brilliant service Yvette was amazing and looked after our Pomsky Toby very well. Yvette trained him on a long line and refreshed his basic commands and took him out for adventures even to the beach. Toby loved being with the other dogs and yvette and I had regular reassuring updates photos and videos from Yvette communication from booking to collection and throughout our holiday was great. I 100% recommend Yvette and wags on water thanks again will be using your service in the near future.
