About Charles

**Christmas 2018:
Please note that Christmas rates will apply for 23rd Dec - 2nd Jan **

For four years my girlfriend, Alison, and I have been welcoming dogs to stay in our cosy 2-bedroom, North London flat with shared garden. Our close proximity to Hampstead Heath, and our freelance work as musician and writer enables us to offer dogs more walks than they could dream of, and our undivided attention when they're back at our home to play, do some basic training, or curl up on the sofa. We tend not to look after dogs whilst both involved in other work, so when we're available that means full-time companionship, exercise & fun.

We've grown extremely fond of our regular visitors, and are constantly told by their owners how happy their dogs always are to be dropped off with us, knowing what that entails. We're keen to expand our network of regular visiting dogs - whether it be just for an afternoon, or a full vacation. We can accommodate three dogs at a time.

My girlfriend grew up with dogs, and whilst I missed out on a childhood with them, I've spent the last ten years making up for lost time. One of our regulars, Louis (Jackapoo) has become a real member of the family. We have him up to two weeks each month, so it's likely that your dog will get to meet him in all his scruffy brilliance. ``We've also welcomed whippets, greyhounds, pinchers, Shiba Inus, Setters, a Labrador service dog, a 16-year-old Husky, and more! Every dog is different and needs different care: some are fine off-leash on the Heath and run for hours making friends, others are shier, preferring short walks on leads. We're able to adapt to their personalities and individual needs.

First and foremost, we're proud to offer a safe, comfortable home full of love, so dogs (and their owners) can be completely at ease.

    My dog Betty, a Lakeland terrier, is quite a tricky dog. She can be anxious and snappy. We had a couple of trial stays and she totally adored Charles and Alison. This was the first time she had ever stayed with people she does not know. She was very well cared for and enjoyed lovely walks on the Heath. I would be very happy to use them again.
