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 15 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 2007, 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 10 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 ).

    We had been let down by other dog minders for Molly & Saga and Carl came to the rescue! They were made to feel at home from the off and Carl understood their needs perfectly. It was a 3 night stay, we received updates & photos and will certainly use him again as it was a home from home.

    This was Oscar's first experience of boarding. He is an anxious little dog so we were concerned about leaving him for a few days but there was absolutely no need to be. We were kept well-informed about how he was coping and received some lovely photos too. We'd be happy to use Carl's service again.

    Carl did a great job of looking after my two girls, sent photos through out their stay which really made me feel better as I’d never left them before!!
