About Cecily

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.

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

    Freddie had the most wonderful first day with. Cecily. I was so impressed by the way she introduced him to her home and settled him so quickly. The video and photographs were such an added bonus during the day. I felt so reassured and delighted that my little puppy was a happy little fellow. Huge thanks to Cecily. We will definitely be going back.

    Cecily was absolutely fantastic. Alfie is super shy and not good with new people, but she made him feel at home and it looked like he had a fab time. First time I’ve used DogBuddy and left him with someone completely new and Cecily was great in making us all feel comfortable. Thank you!
