About Gill

We area a family of 5 , Richard works at Northampton Uni, I work as a part time midwife, Polly, 25, lives in Crystal Palace and is a press officer, Oliver, 22, lives in at The Frontier Center, Rock UK in Irthlingborough and is an Activities Instructor, Evie, 18, is having a gap and is off to South Africa with TEAR Fund for 3 months February 2017.

We are a pretty active family who love jogging, walking and cycling. We live very close to Abington Park where we take the dogs for walks, we are also not too far from the fabulous Sywell reservoir and numerous footpaths in and around nearby villages, where we often walk the dogs.

We have been looking after friends dogs for the past 2 years. A very lively 10 yr old spaniel, who loves chasing birds! A quiet and timid Westie who started life as a breeding bitch, so not well cared for, but now with a lovely friend of mine, and another lovely spaniel who also started life as a breeding bitch. Both of the last two are rescue dogs. We love having them as they add so much to our lives and give peace of mind to their owners. We have had dogs of our own in the past and currently two rabbits (also rescued).

Please note we can only care for ONE small/medium dog up to 20Kg, at a time due to size of our home . We also regret we are unable to care for any dogs who are used to sleeping in their owner's bedroom. Thank you. We very much look forward to meeting you and looking after your dog.

    Gill and her family were brilliant. The photo updates were great and Mollie was very happy in her holiday home

    Hi Sally and her Mum. It was a pleasure to look after Mollie. Thank you so much for your lovely review and encouragement. If you should ever need us please ask. I just hope we are not away ourselves at the same time. Kind regards. Gill

    Gill and family we absolutely fantastic, we have had some terrible experiences with Kennels in the past and have tried numerous other options that have not worked but reaching out to Gill on Dog Buddy was the best decision we made. We traveled to Turkey and straight away we have updates on how she was doing and pictures of her activities and walks throughout our vacation. Chelsea was treated and loved like at home and I would highly recommend Gill to look after your pet. :-)

    Gill and Richard were absolutely perfect for our two Spaniels. They understood the dogs needs and characters and we felt totally releaved that we found such brilliant dog sitters. I think they go above and beyond, to make the dog feel at home. The constant updates and pictures really put my mind at rest and I don't think you could find lovelyer people. I have no hesitation recommending Gill to anybody who needs a sitter who really understands dogs and gives them the love and attention you hope for your dog. Can't praise them enough.
