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.
