About Stan & Helen
Following the loss, in 2011, of our boxer after 12 wonderful years, we felt it would be better for us, now that our children are grown-up, not to own our own dog but to provide a sitting service for others. We have now been doing this since early 2012 and have enjoyed the company of many wonderful dogs, some who are now regulars.
I previously worked from home and, at the end of 2016, took early retirement. Having a dog around the house provides wonderful company and a great excuse for a long walk. My wife Helen, works three days a week only so your dog is unlikely to be left alone for any period of time. We have a large secure garden, a spacious house and are just a couple of minutes from a number of parks and green spaces.
Full sitting service; from one night to one month. Unlike some carers we prefer to be exclusive to you and your dog or dogs. We do not encourage multiple bookings although occasionally there's a need to agree an overlap of dates. In such examples we always consult both owners.
Pick-up and return, walking (if local to AL1 5SU), dog-sitting at your place. We aim to be flexible.
Special Offer : we have a beautiful two-bedroom rental apartment by the sea in Duquesa, Costa Del Sol. Free doggy care for you if you book a stay - please enquire for details.
