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 dogs such as Yorkshire Terriers, Shih Tzu, Maltese, Havanese, Bichon Frise, Cockapoo, Miniture Poodle, King Charles, Pug, basically all toy 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.

I would encourage any new client to initially leave their dog only for 24 hours (although this is not compulsory), I do a little dog training in this period, which helps the dog to bond with me and also lets them get used to the change in enviroment.

I think first impressions matter even to dogs and I want new dogs' first meetings to be great. All dogs meeting for the first time are brought on a meet and greet walk on neutral territory and a high value treat given to each one so they have a positive association with each other. It is then back for a play in a large garden with a ball pit, paddling pool and tunnels. Soon they are cuddling on the sofa like old friends really sweet and they have playmates.

I use pet remedy in the sitting room which is known to destress the dogs. 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.

We normally go on two walks a day venturing to Friary park, Princess Manor, Highgate woods, Trent Park and Kenwood.

I love my job because seeing little dogs having great fun and being totally relaxed in my home is amazing. Boarding limited to 3 dogs a night.
