About Carrie

We offer a loving 'home from home' for dogs. My husband, son and I are passionate dog lovers, I have had a dog all my life, too many years to mention! We have mainly been lucky enough to share our lives with golden retrievers, chocolate and black labradors, usually owning two dogs at any one time, currently we only have one wonderful black labrador (castrated dog) Vince. He is very accommodating welcoming other dogs to share his family and home. He is a fantastic example to younger dogs who often go home slightly calmer! We love all breeds of dogs!

We live in the countryside just outside Billingshurst and have a totally enclosed 1/2 acre garden, a 4 acre paddock and are surrounded by stunning countryside to walk in. In addition to our labrador we have 9 chickens (in an enclosed run), a 25 year old horse in the paddock and an 9 year old animal loving son. We love walking and spending time outside with animals!

We usually only take one or two dogs at any one time. Please contact us to chat about your dogs requirements, we are happy for you to come around for a home visit with your four legged friend, to meet Vince and us.

    Carrie was very welcoming and made me feel comfortable with leaving Willow with her. It was lovely for Willow to have another dog in the house and she seemed very happy to be left without a backwards glance! Would love her to stay again if you'll have her. Thank you Carrie.

    Mungo was welcomed by Carrie and made to feel at home for his short stay booked at short notice. For his first experience away from home he seemed very happy. We would love him to stay again.

    Thanks Saro. He was a very good boy and did settle in quickly. Love to have him again sometime. Cheers Carrie

    I had never left my dog with anyone outside my family before so was very nervous but I need not have been as Carrie was brilliant with my dog. Her whole family welcomed her into their home and really cared for her like she was their own. I really can recommend Carrie and will use her for all my holidays.
