About Lorraine

I am a caring dog owner, with years of experience of different breeds. As a child I was brought up with working Guide Dogs in our home and have cared for a variety of dogs, from rescued Greyhounds to a Bichon Frise... who I have had for 7 years since he was rejected from training as a hearing dog for the deaf! I am reliable, honest & will give your pet the love & attention he or she deserves. Other dogs I have boarded include Dogue de Bordeaux, Rottweiler, puggle, Boarder terrier, Boarder Collie, Jack Russle, Maltese cross, Grey Hound and more! We live in the friendly village of Earls Barton, within very close reach of Sywell Country Park, Summer Leas nature reserve and the Nene Valley...all of which are regular walking spots for me and my own dog and any dog who stays with us. I have one child in the home who is 15 and loves animals. I will always meet and greet prior to any stay to enable you to see our home and check in advance that you are happy with accommodation and that all details about your dogs routines and needs are understood and communicated in advance.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Boarding prices are per 24hrs, any extended hours will be charged at £1.00 per additional hour.

    Lorraine was great. She took Star for us for the first time at fairly short notice & had no problem handling our bouncy teenage Doberman. She was very professional and well organised & after our meet and greet I felt completely comfortable leaving Star with Lorraine. She took Star for a good long walk the morning we collected her as well, which saved us a job ; ) Would definitely use Lorraine again.

    Really great service! Helped me out last minute and made my very timid dog feel right at home very quickly. Great home from home atmosphere and kept me updated the whole time, so I felt completely at ease. Think my little dog would have happliy stayed there! Can't rate it highly enough. Fantastic service.

    We have left our Bichon Frise , Alfie , with Lorraine on a couple of occasions , one overnight and one daytime and when we picked Alfie up he was very calm and happy , I would recommend Lorraine as a sitter without any hesitation whatsoever My rating 5*
