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.

    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.

    Thanks Kim for your review. She was a superstar and settled into our home and routine very quickly. We look forward to welcoming her again. Cheers Carrie

    Monty had a wonderful couple of days with Carrie and family. His first time away from home and a great success. He loved the walks and enjoyed games in Carrie's lovely, safe garden. Thank you!

    We have booked Fudge in to stay with Carrie and her family numerous times over the past couple of years. He always gets extremely excited when he realises where he is going and then sulks for a couple of days after we've picked him up! The care, love and attention he receives when he is there puts our minds completely at rest.
