Doggy Care Portsmouth


About Carl

I have always had dogs, since leaving home at 17 and consider them to be an important part of the family. My wife and I met at age 14 and have been together ever since. We are now in our 50s and have always included pets in our family. Presently, we have two beautiful Cairn Terriers, who light up our life with love and companionship. Over the years, we have had three Labradors ( 2 black and one white, the last of which, named Bella, was our faithful friend for 16 years. Charlie ( our lovely male Cairn Terrier ) has now been with us for 12 years and he has been everywhere with us in this time. We haven`t taken him abroad at all, but he has been all over the UK with us, from Wales to Kent, to Yorkshire and several times to Scotland. We have pictures of him with us in numerous locations around the UK. In 2008, Charlie was joined by a beautiful little puppy called Rosie and they are now the firmest of friends. Rosie ( our female Cairn Terrier ), is now 7 years old and is one of the most loving dogs I have known. Both dogs are with me during the day ( whilst my wife is at work ) and they sit as good as gold in a big basket on the front of my bike as I take a daily ride around town. They have had their picture taken many times and I am probably known as `the dog man` in these parts, as they have been met and admired by so many people !
About 300 yds away, at the end of our road, we have St Marys Recreation Park - where dogs are welcome for exercise and across the road from this is St Mary`s Cemetery, which makes a picturesque location for dog walking ( on leads only ).

    Carl was a great sitter for Lola, we'd have no worries leaving her with him again. Carl and his wife are clearly dog lovers and seemed to lavish as much care on Lola as on their own two dogs. It was lovely for Lola to stay in a home-from-home, where she was allowed all the freedoms she's used to.

    Thank you Carl Janeiro was very relaxed when he returned home, he had great walks with regular photos & updates sent. Carl also bathed Janeiro after a long walk, thank you. I would like to use Carl again and would recommend with 5 stars

    Thanks Paul. Was great to meet you and Janeiro. As you know, he was a bit nervous at first, but settled down within half an hour and then just had a great time ! He got on so well with the other dogs ( especially the old boys Charlie and our other visitor Ralphie the Beagle ! ). I had some good play fights and cuddles with him and he loved walkies in the country side and the bath afterwards !
