About Debbie

We live in Sonning, near Reading, a beautiful place with miles of lovely countryside walks - ideal for dog walking!
I also have a large safe and secure 100ft garden where all my doggie guests love to play. We are now all expert ball throwers!!
As we work from home, we are able to spend a lot of time walking, fussing and playing with the dogs. We like to treat every dog as if it were our own (the sofa gets rather cosy!) whilst respecting the owners wishes. It's a real pleasure to be a dog boarder and we always look forward to our next guests!
PLEASE ASK FOR PRICES FOR WEEKENDS and BANK/NATIONAL HOLIDAYS as they will be custom charged at a higher rate

we are also experienced dog trainers and welcome puppies too. : )

    Somewhat new to the area I was able to visit when we first moved last year just to say hi and see how Bosun was and we've only now just needed some day care which we're really happy with. It's good to know we can leave Bosun in such capable and importantly well trained hands, or rather "hands that train well"? I'm even considering getting some training from Debbie to help us nip a few behaviours in the bud. We're also really happy he gets some good socialising time with other dogs when he's there - carefully watch over by Debbie - which we can't recreate that at home. Thanks again!!

    My dog, Balim usually get nervous when she is around strangers. Debbie seems to have a magic stick because the moment Balim got introduced her and her house, she was completely fine running around Debbie’s kitchen. In addition, for the first time Balim got very closed to another dog with Debbie’s help which made me very happy. Thanks Debbie. Balim looks forward to seeing you at the end of March.

    I was quite satisfied with the care given by Debbie. Unfortunately she was not available when I picked Saffie up, but she has contacted me since and assured me that Saffie settled well.

    Hi Sheila I was on a dog walk.. we are a family run business with Myself, Jade Maggie and Dave alll equally involved in the 24/7 care of all the dogs we look after which also ensures there never left alone for a minute and have constant attention.
