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. Day care charges are for 8.5hrs and any additional hours are charged at £1 per hour.

    Lorraine took great care of Maddie and Ralph and took them on a very long walk. I’ll definitely be making further bookings when I need somebody to look after them.

    Thank you Tim for taking the time to leave a review, much appreciated. It was a pleasure to look after them and thank you for trusting me with the care of them both. Tim is a very conscientious dog owner and provided me with detailed information that made Ralph and Maddie's stay with me a walk in the park. Very good wishes to you and hopefully see you and the two lovelies again 😊

    Excellent!!!!!! Daisy-Mae was so well looked after. We had daily updates and got loads of photos and videos during her stay, it helped put our minds at ease while we were away. Daisy-Mae felt more at home than we imagined she could be. Lorraine did not disappoint and she took real good care of our precious puppy. After we picked her up she pretty much slept to mid day the next day which is a good sign that she enjoyed her stay. We would definitely recommend and without a doubt come back to Lorraine for Daisy-Mae in the future.

    Thank you Bryan for leaving a review and for leaving your beloved Daisy-Mae with me. We loved having her and would welcome her anytime. Bryan provided detailed helpful information which supported the smooth transition and Daisy was well behaved both in and out the house, and an absolute pleasure to look after. Hope to see her again in the future 😊

    Excellent. Great communicator, Sadie was well looked after and came back to me looking great. Lorraine kept me up to date all along, and did everything I asked. Would definitely recommend and will be the only person I use going forward!
