I have references from existing clients and am fully insured, dogs travel in style in my pet mobile ( van) fully crated out with air vents fitted, cool gel mats and cool coats if its really hot and heaters and dog coats on if its really cold. I also board dogs whether it being a one off over night or a weeks holiday or even Christmas and the new year ( If they are really good girl's and boy's Santa may even pay them a visit.) I do go away for some weekends as all my dogs do Flyball (which is dog relay racing) if I am looking after your dog, your dog is more than welcome to come and join in with all the doggy fun they love it.

    Barbara did a wonderful job of taking care of my dog for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year's. This was the first time I left him with a sitter for such a long time, and Barbara was so kind to send frequent photos and updates, and even a video on Christmas morning. No issues whatsoever, even though he needs medication twice per day. He can be a bit grumpy with other dogs but he even made a few friends among Barbara's group. He came home tired and happy (and with a Christmas stocking full of new toys from Auntie Barbara). Highly recommend!
