    I can't thank Niki, Chris and the adorable Douglas enough for welcoming TT my black Lab into their home last Christmas. I enjoyed a worry free week away with updates and pictures of TT as reassurance. Five star service which I cannot recommend highly enough. TT simply felt at home and so at ease with you all, I wasn't sure she was entirely pleased to leave once I returned ! Thank you and I hope TT can come back again one day.

    Many thanks to Niki and Chris for looking after our 10 month old terrier "freddie". This was the first time we were leaving him for a week and we were very apprehensive. We did not need to worry. A chance to meet and visit their dog friendly home prior to Freddie's stay was very reassuring. Freddie and Dougie got on well . When we came to collect Freddie, the dogs bounded over to us in the garden, very happy and content.Freddie enjoyed his trip to the beach, helping with planting and spending time with his new best mate. We have no hesitation in recommending Niki and Chris, if you are looking for experienced dog sitters in a safe and friendly environment.

    Niki and Chris are lovely couple who clearly love dogs, My two boys can be a bit of a handful at times but they both took it in their stride, Lucus is a very nervous rescue dog who is usually terrified of men but by the end of the weekend he was cuddled up to Chris on the sofa making himself at home, The boys came home exhausted from a lovely walk on the Quantocks with Dougie their gorgrous springer spaniel, "a tired dog is a happy dog" I think Lucus wanted to stay, he really wasn't in any hurry to leave, if Lucus was happy to stay then that says it all, thank you both for having them and I will be more than happy to leave them with you then next time we go away.
