About Sally

We are an enthusiastic couple - experienced in looking after dogs both big and small! We are so passionate about our canine friends that I have given up my teaching role to begin a new career caring for your animals.

We recognise the importance of making a dog feel comfortable and knowing it is loved, even if only for a short time away from their owner. Sometimes giving your dog a little space to find it's own way around and settle in to their new surroundings. Each dog is an individual, and thus treated so.

We have a fun and friendly bearded collie for your dog to play with who loves the company of others.

They can have the run of our secure garden (4ft fence), go for walks in the nearby fields, parks and woods or can just curl up warm inside. Your dog will be guaranteed 3 walks a day come rain or come shine, and given lots of love and attention.

Our home is a most dog friendly one and no area out of bounds. Our dog tends to sleep upstairs, and any visitors are welcome to do just that, or find their own little spot to curl up in somewhere else if they wish.

I will send you daily updates and photos of your furry friends to show you what they have been up to.

We can look after your dog whilst you are at work or away on holiday or just need someone to take them off your hands for a little while. (All we ask is for your own dog(s) to have been recently flea/tick/worm treated)

I am fully CRB checked.

Your dog will be welcomed and treated as a member of the family, so if you think we are right for you and your dog then get in touch.

We can offer overnight boarding with evening and morning walks and
day care with 3 good walks a day. Discounts may be given for longer stays.

We offer a discount coupon for first time visits for £10. Our coupon code: BUDDY 10

    Nelson stayed for two weeks, it was the first time we had ever left a dog with anyone other than family. He made a fuss if me when I went to collect him but was quite happy to go back for more cuddles with Sally and her husband.

    Fred had a whale of a time with Sally. By staying overnight it relieved some of the stress of a house move. Fred was super happy, and having spent hours chasing rabbits and running around like a lunatic with Darcy it took him days to recover! One very chilled dog and one happy owner.

    Sally was great and Beau must have loved her daily walks with her and her dog Darcy as everyday we came home she was fast asleep. Will definately be using her again.
