About Verity

At Berkshire Dog Holidays we provide a comfortable and fun 'home away from home' for your pooch with all the love and snuggles that they would get with you!

We are based in central Reading and within a short distance of the beautiful Reading University campus where there are long, medium and short walks available around the pretty lake and gardens.

A nearby particular doggy favourite is the Thames canal path along to Sonning in one direction, and Pangbourne in the other with the benefit of a canal tow path just a short walk away.

I, Verity, will be the main carer for your four-legged friend with my husband Andrew helping me give them plenty of love and attention.

I have been dog-sitting for a few years and enjoy the opportunity to have an overnight or day visitor who is just as eager for a cuddle on the sofa as I am!

The house itself is a pretty little cottage (yes, in the heart of Reading!) end-of-terrace and we inhabit the ground floor where your furry friend is welcome to roam in every room. It is a dog-free home (unless there is a holiday booked!) and childfree so even more nervous pups will be comfortable.

As well as an overnight stay, I am happy to watch your pooch during the day or take them out to the park for a jaunt. There are some beautiful walking paths around this part of town!

We look forward to hearing from you and giving your pet a holiday home in the near future!

Verity and Andrew

    Verity looked after Aria and Apollo for 12 days and nights while me ans my husband were away on holidays. Verity kept us up to date about what they were doing during the day and sent photos regularly. Aria and Apollo are big dogs so about a week after having them Verity noticed that the dogs were a bit uncomfortable in Verity's house. She contacted us to let us know and together we were able to sort out a solution that worked well for both Verity and the dogs. We definitely trust her and would recommend her service!

    Verity was amazing, she met Steel and I at the train station and as soon as she turned up I felt very comfortable leaving steel with her. Looked like Steel had fun from the picture!!! Had to get on a certain train and Verity arrived back in time. Steel must have had fun as he slept the whole way home!!! Thank so much would definitely recommend!!!!

    The fact that this was Milly's second visit to Verity & Andy, reinforced our view that she's extremely well looked after. Caring, lovely people who enjoyed looking after her and made her stay a home from home.
