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 was very kind and helpful. I had no worries about leaving Jasper with her. I will use her again!
