About Sara

Hello, my name is Sara and I love dogs!!

I've had dogs all my life and they are very much part of our family... 1 hubby, 2 children & 3 dogs! There's Misty a miniature poodle who we rescue at 4 years old, and we have two very playful cockapoos- Luna & Bella! They are always in the go! We do agility classes and have a mini agility course in garden. We also do canicross, cross country running events with your dog dog. Take a look at our face book page ‘Darlington & Richmond Canicross’

Your friendly dog/s are very welcome to join us in the countryside with a large secure house and garden. We walk three times a day in open fields and places to go swimming. My dogs love the long corn fields chasing the tennis ball and paddling in the streams, They are spoilt! The girls have bunk beds, which was made especially for them!

Your dogs will fit in and enjoy our garden which has a 5 foot secure fence all round the house. I will only take inside dogs as I believe they should not be left outside! My children are age 12 & 14 and they also help me groom, train & exercise my girls.

    Timmy just had his first sleepover and loved it. Sara provides a first class service within a lovely family environment. I would highly recommend Sara, she is a gem of a find. Your dog will be treat like one of the family and she's super helpful with drop off and collection times.

    The standards and levels of Sara's care are really "outstanding", Rudy my German Wire Haired Pointer is boisterous and full on, needing a lot of attention and exercise. I could see that Sara and from the daily video "Pupdates" the rest of Sara's family fully engaged with him and enjoyed the experience, as much as Rudy did. Rudy if he could speak "he is still in the Huff with me" for having taken him from his Shangri La would wholeheartedly agree. PS: he is going back for his Xmas present.

    I read the reviews others had left for Sara and I can’t agree enough. This was the first time I left Toby (4 month old Dachshund) and I couldn’t have been more pleased to leave him with such a lovely family. I got updates and pictures every day to how he was doing and it really put me at ease. It was a struggle to get him to want to come home!!! Will define using Sara again

    Thanks Rachel! Toby ‘chops’ is a character, always wanting to be in on the action! He’s a very clever pup x
