Hello and welcome to D'Arcy's Little Dogs!
A dog makes his living by giving you nothing but love.
Hi my name is Cecily and I am passionate about little dogs. I provide a specialist service for toy / small dogs such as Yorkshire Terriers, Shih Tzu, Maltese, Havanese, Bichon Frise, Miniture Poodle, King Charles, Pug, dachshund Shih poo, maltipoo cavapoo and other small breeds.
Dog boarding is my full time job so I spend all my time with the dogs and their happiness is paramount. I have completed a dog sitting and first aid course. I have years of experience caring for dogs. I had my own little shih tzu who died of old age. I have worked in a caring profession for oder 20 years.
My home is completely kitted out for dogs and we have lots of chill out areas for them. We also have aromatherapy and relaxing music, tellington touch massage and lots of toys and enrichment activity games.
We have a routine we follow, usually a morning walk for about an hour. Then it is back for a play in a large garden with a ball pit, paddling pool and tunnels and games.
Then they have chill out relaxing afternoon to either classical music or smooth jazz and aromatherapy. The dogs love it.
Then cuddling up time on the sofa in the evening.
It is fascinating to find out all their different personalities. I look to see what each dogs motivation is, for some it's food, for others play and some thrive on lots of praise.
I love my job because seeing little dogs having great fun and being totally relaxed in my home is amazing.
For all new dogs it is recommended that they have a settling in overnight stay. This allows the dog to bond with me and get to know their surrounding. You also know your dog is happy before you go on holiday.
A meet and greet is compulsory so we can all get to know each other.
As part of my license requirement all dogs have to be up to date with vaccination which includes kennel cough.
My council Licence No is ANDOGS/17/57171
