About Charlotte

I have cared for dogs from a german shepherds and bullmastiffs to chihuahuas and maltese terriers. Your dogs will be treated as members of the family, and will get plenty of attention, cuddles and walks. I have 3 local parks within walking distance, including an enclosed area where I can let dogs off-lead with their owner's permission. Sometimes we walk along the beach. I have a small back garden which dogs like to sunbathe in. When they first arrive for their stay, it doesn't take them long to find their way onto my large, comfortable settee! I understand that dogs miss their owners (and owners miss their dogs), so I usually try to walk a dog as soon as possible after being dropped off, as that takes their minds off it and gives them something to feel happy and excited about. On their return they are tired, and that helps them to settle down and relax.

I'm a licensed dog boarder. This means that I have been through an inspection and I follow written procedures to ensure the health, safety and welfare of your dog. It also means that I can't take more than 2 dogs at present, or puppies under 6 months of age. Male dogs must be neutered, females not in heat or due to come into heat during their stay. All dogs must be vaccinated at least 4 weeks prior to their stay, and I will need to see their vaccination certificates. It is illegal to board dogs without a license.

    I would definitely recommend Charlotte, she has taken very good care of our whippet at short notice and kept in touch regularly throughout the week while we were away. We wouldn’t leave our dog with just anybody but would use Charlotte again without hesitation..Thanks

    Its the 1st time I had left my Dog, but on the visit Charlotte made me feel certain that she would be fine. Angel was picked up to go to the lakes, I was sent pics & texts thru the day that reassured me she was fine. What made me certain that everything had gone ok was my dogs reaction when I picked her up. She was obvs comfortable with both Charlotte and Dennis kissing them, and wagging her tail at them. She wouldn't have done this if they hadn't looked after her properly. I wouldnt hesitate to ask Charlotte to look after her Again as she was obv well cared for x
