    Thank you Elaine. Tia is a delight and it was lovely to see her develop and come out of her shell as the week progressed. She is welcome back anytime. X

    We were worried whether Robson would be ok as he has never been left with anyone before. We needn’t have worried. He had a great time and came back exhausted with his tail wagging. We would fully recommend.

    Thank you for the lovely review Ali. Robson was a pleasure to have here, he was a great addition to the gang and is welcome back at any time. X

    First time we have left our dog with anyone, so initially nervous. However was good to meet Steve and joy beforehand to put our minds at rest. Millie seemed to have a great time, would recommend.
