About Alison

Love walking, outdoors, wildlife, all sorts of animals but especially DOGS! Happily married, now at home all day, and I so enjoy visits from my grown up children, seeing my grandpups, and dogsitting. I am CRB checked, trustworthy, practical and reliable.
I adore all sizes of dogs - however due to once suffering a back injury I now ONLY walk small/medium sized dogs to avoid any possibility of reoccurrence. My husband and I both had dogs called Dinky when we were young so now this title becomes very apt! We have a guinea pig called Pepper - who can have her cage in her own bedroom when we have our doggy visitors.

We offer a welcoming and spacious victorian terraced house in a very quiet location with large, private, fenced garden and patio area to the front and smaller garden with parking, drive and garage to rear. Nearby is a very popular country lane route to the Leeds/Liverpool canal, several fields, woods, open grassland and a river.

I like to give attention to just one dog at a time but I am very happy to take two small dogs if they are usually together then it's just like home for them.

We offer your dog/s a doggy-friendly comfy leather sofa of their own, they are free to enjoy everywhere in the house with us up until bedtime, ( and beyond if they are quiet in our bedroom and allowed by you! ) have cuddles on our sofas, loving attention, playtimes and regular walks as requested by you.

WALKING - your small/medium dog/s can enjoy their usual walk/s, individual attention, and drying them off after a wet walk, treats etc. One hour inclusive of my travelling to and from your home so that it's fair all round :)

    Alison was a wonderful dog sitter for my dog Charlie. She sent us regular updates whilst we were on holiday which put our minds completely at ease. We will be using Alison again as Charlie really enjoyed himself. Overall he had a great stay!

    I can highly recommend Alison and Andy, the home and garden were perfect for my little Twiggy a Patterdale cross. On our first meeting with Alison, Twiggy soon made herself at home jumping straight on the settee with Alison rather than sitting with me, I new then that Twiggy felt very comfortable which made me know I could go on Holiday without any worries. She defiantly enjoyed her two week stay . When I returned from my holiday she came to the door to greet me then ran straight back inside to sit on the settee with Andy. I can Highly recommend Alison's service and I would use her again. Thanks to you both.

    I recently trusted my treasured Jack Russell, TJ, with Alison and Andy for a second time. I was away on holiday for 18 nights and whilst I would miss him, I knew he would be well cared for and loved to bits. TJ is getting on a bit and has a few special needs which they followed to the letter, keeping him healthy and happy. Alison even made a big fuss of him on his 15th birthday and sent me a lovely photo which melted my heart. Thank you both so much for taking good care of my little man. You can't put a price on peace of mind. TJ is already looking forward to his next holiday with you. xxx
