About Colette

I love dogs. We had our lovely 5 month old, rescue, collie cross, Barnie, till he was fifteen. He grew up with our children & was a lot of fun (definitely the third child).
When I was a child our dog, Susie, always slept at the foot of my bed.
When our daughter was studying she did dog sitting in our home to earn extra cash. We loved having the dogs here. They each had such unique characters.
She now has her own rescue dog, Rusty, who regards us as is second home. He sometimes stays here weekends when they are away.
When I recently retired it was the ideal time to take over where my daughter left off. We’re not ready to own a dog again yet as we intend to do some travelling. Dog sitting gives me my ‘dog fix’.
We have lived in our house for over 30 years & have excellent neighbours.
The garden is very secure with lots of wild life to keep the dogs entertained.
There is a park and woodland just a few minutes walk from the house where we walk daily. Lots of dogs and their walkers meet up in this area.

    Thank you so much for having Amber the last week. Amber seemed to settle in very well and im sure she loved all the walks and playing with Rusty! I know that she has had lots of love and cuddles. Hope to see you again soon.

    Although it was only for one night, I think I can say that Max was treated like a superstar. We have only had Max for 14 months and had no worries about leaving him with Colette. He took to her straight away. I will definitely be using Colette again.

    Our boys seemed to have a great time with Colette and Graham. I feel completely comfortable leaving them again, as the were obviously loved and cared for. Look forward to seeing you again

    Thank you, Alistair. Monkey & Tigger were every bit as cute as they looked. Such lovely dogs to have around. We’d be delighted to have them again.
