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 work from home and having a dog around the house provides wonderful company and a great excuse for a long walk. My wife Helen, works mornings 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 take on 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, 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.

    Everything went very smoothly. We could tell immediately that we were leaving our pet with experienced dog-lovers. Nyla seemed to be very happy and contented there. Would go again, and also recommend to others too!

    Stan and Helen very kindly looked after Barney at short notice, and Barney seemed very happy there. We would definitely ask Stan and Helen to help out in the future. Thanks again!

    Stan looked after Barney at quite short notice and was flexible and helpful with the arrangements. Barney seemed totally happy and comfortable there. No problems at all.
