About Christine

I have been surrounded by and caring for dogs for more than 30 years and I am now fortunate enough to be a full time dog sitter. This means your dog(s) will have lots of love and attention 24/7. My house has an enclosed garden for safe play, a small park across the road for quick walks and fields around it for longer walks. Dogs get treated like one of the family and no bed,sofa or room is off limits. They even have their own room in the house full of toys, comfy beds and old armchairs to play in and I have no kids or cats in case that is a concern for your pet.
I normally keep the amount of dogs in my care to a maximum of 3 to make sure everyone gets enough cuddles and exercise and I am very strict on compatibility between dogs for peace of mind. If you prefer for your dog(s) to be the only dog(s) in the house, I would gladly arrange that with enough warning where possible. (Please note that for this type of booking there will be an extra charge of £10 a night between May and September)
I do insist on having a meeting before confirming any bookings to make sure that your pet and I are compatible and that they are happy in my home environment. A meeting will also give us the chance to discuss your pet's individual needs/routines/quirks. I look after a lot of older and rescue dogs who sometimes require a bit extra care and understanding so please don't hesitate to get in touch if this is your situation and you are unsure of what option is best for your dog. I can also arrange trial stays and play dates until all parties concerned feel comfortable if required.
Please get in touch for more information or if you have any questions or concerns. I am happy to help.

    Riley had a great time staying with Christine. She's very professional, and obviously loves dogs. Would recommend without reservation.

    Thank you very much for the review! Little Riley is adorable and hilarious and I had so much fun getting to know him. Can't wait to see him again!

    Couldn't have hoped for a better person than Christine to take care of our two dogs Willow & Benji, they loved spending the day with her. Benji's a rescue dog so a home environment was important. Christine's home is a lovely, welcoming, place and she had a very natural, affectionate way with our dogs, they felt right at home. She was very understanding of Benji's needs as a rescue dog, his little quirks of character! Photos & messages sent throughout the day were so reassuring, Thank you Christine for taking such wonderful care of our dogs, happy to recommend your excellent service to others.

    Thank you,Anna. What wonderful dogs you have! Willow and Benji made such a big impression on me in the short time they were here and I hope to see them again next time you come down for a holiday.

    We have never left our boys before so I was really anxious for the first time. The whole experience from start to finish with Christine was wonderful. My dogs absolutely adored her. Nothing was too much trouble and Christine took care to look after them just how we wanted. We had regular updates and photos throughout their stay. Christine treats the dogs with love and they are kept in a very safe and beautiful environment. I don’t think the pooches knew or even cared we were not there. If I could give 6 stars I would. Thank you so much c

    Thank you for this great review,Karen. In between feeding King Herbie in bed and playing football with little Bruce I had the best time. They both have so much love to give and I'm looking forward to being on the receiving end of all that affection again.
