About Sue

Our love of dogs started over 35 years ago when we had our first Rescue dog, and after that came our passion & love of Dalmatians & Chinese Crested Hairless dogs.

Dogs have always been part of our family, and your dog(s) will be treated the same, with lots of love and attention, and home comforts too. We have lovely walks nearby - very dog friendly, with lots of places to explore. Our home is dog friendly, with a secure walled garden - sadly we have lost all of our own dogs now to old age.

For a few years, I volunteered with Dalmatian Rescue, vetting homes, and fostering Dalmatians (to assess them before they went to their new homes).

Most of our dogs have been from Rescue Organizations, and over the past 35 years, we have fostered (temporarily & permanently) many dogs (including Crossbreeds, Belgian Shepherd, Spaniel, Chinese Crested & Dalmatians - one of whom was blind from birth), lots of whom went on to permanent loving homes.

I have been a trainer at several Dog Obedience Training Clubs in past years, and competed with my dogs Sam & Cid, in Obedience Competitions. I have also shown Cid, one of our Dalmatians, and Lennie, our Chinese Crested, at Breed Shows (including Crufts) in the 1990's.

Prices at Bank Holidays cost a little more than normal, so please use the message button to send your Dates and also Drop-Off/Pick Up times, to obtain a Custom Quote.

We don't have set opening times, and we try to be as flexible as possible, to accommodate your needs - just ask when sending through an Enquiry, or a Booking.

We have a maximum of 4 dogs on any day/night, depending on the size of the dog, so as dates fill up very quickly, we advise early booking.

We will need to see a current vaccination certificate for all dogs, and first vaccinations should be completed at least 4 weeks before your dogs holiday with us - this does not apply to boosters.

All dogs must attend a Meet & Greet, prior to starting their first holiday with us.

    Sue and Craig were absolutely fab with Charlie! They made me feel at ease leaving him for the first time with them. Thank you so much both 😊

    Thank you Hannah - you didn't need to worry about Charlie - he settled in straight away, and was a really easy dog to care for - we are looking forward to his next visit :-)

Thanx again both... Highly recommended..

    Tia stayed with Sue and Craig over the weekend. I could see from the Facebook posts that she was really at home and happy with the the other dogs, which was a concern as she is an 'only dog'. This is all down to the wonderful care Sue and Craig take of their guests. They take account of each dog's specific personality and needs, ensuring that their stay is a 'home from home'. This may have been Tia's first visit but definitely not her last.
