About Mary Rose

I have been taking in dogs as guests for 4 years now. I am very laid back, as a qualified dog behaviourist, and allow the dogs to mix and act as a pack.
I currently own 4 dogs myself who love seeing other dogs all the time. We run over the fields twice a day, all dogs off lead in a safe fenced environment. Dogs have access to all areas downstairs, but are not allowed upstairs. They sleep where they want to, on their own bedding.
A happy doghouse that caters for all breeds of dogs as long as they are neutered and are up to date with vaccinations, worming, flea`d etc.
I live in a very old cottage set in its own ground, with access to the open countryside of the farm that the house is part of. Dogs can come in and out of the house as they like, or play outside or sunbathe- whatever!

    Toto stayed for 3 nights with Mary and her big loveable brood and almost didn't want to come home, he loved it so much and was in great hands. Thank you Mary, we'll definitely be seeing you again!

    Gus had a great day with Mary Rose.Having been to visit beforehand I was confident he was in the hands of someone who understood dogs and their behaviour and provided the ideal environment for their enjoyment.
