Passionate dog lover & Veterinary nurse

About Cathy

I've owned a vast variety of breeds throughout my life and considered them all as my fur children. I worked as a veterinary nurse in my youth so can administer medicine and deal with emergencies. I am now retired and want to help people by providing a home away from home for their dogs, allowing them to relax in the knowledge that their babies are being excellently cared for, lavished with love and cuddles, taken on beautiful park, forest & field walks and have a warm, cosy place to relax at the end of a busy day.
I take a maximum of four dogs at a time, depending on their personalities and social skills so I can focus all my attention on them.
I don't take dogs with a history of aggression but I'm happy to take seniors and dogs with special needs.
I have a beautiful garden, live close to the park and am an active person.
I'd love to be your "go to" dog sitter and take the weight off your shoulders for those last minute bookings or those long awaited holiday bookings!
Please get in touch if you have any questions. 🙂

😢 Please note!! Due to a compromised back I can only take small dogs. Thank you for looking at my profile. 🐕🐾🐾

    Thank you Cathy so much for looking after Diego so lovingly for the 2.5 weeks that we were away. Nothing about Diego’s condition ever fazes you and we know that he couldn’t be in safer and more caring hands. Thanks also for the regular photos, videos and messages- we loved seeing Diego enjoying his holiday with you. See you soon, love Deborah, Sara and Diego xxx

    It’s such a pleasure as always. I love the little man. He can always make me laugh 😂 My favourite thing is to lie down on the floor, he gets so excited, I think he finds it hilarious to have a human on the same level as he is. Loads of love to the three of you xxxx
