About Dawn

I'm a keen animal lover as anyone who meets me will very quickly realise. Gucci your dog's potential new friend. She is affectionate and has to greet every dog she sees!As they say, like owner like dog. I am as ,my son says an embarasment cause I cant walk past any dog. they all get a fuss or spoken to then fussed if they want a fuss. Thats me I have to fuss everything with in reason. If it has eight legs they dont.

I've had experience with dogs of all ages and work closely with a dog behaviourist who has worked with aggressive and nervous dogs to help bring them on. My love for animals started as a kid and I've never stopped loving them since.

Since starting to have pets of my own and families we have had cats they have had kittens, then spayed after haveing one litter. One of my Staffies that I have had. had a litter of puppies they had to be delivered by C section but I watched all the way through then she was spayed as well. she did a good job with the pups. Unfortunately we lost her on the 1st of December 2013. The year before she was diagnosed as having artheritus in both her back legs, Then end of October the following year she developed cancer between her bum and ladies bit. When she started to show signs of distress like for example sleeping in her pee, that was time to call it a day and on the Monday that year she was put to sleep in my arms. I love them all.

Any animal that comes to stay I make a point of making them feel like they are not just part of the family but also on their very own holiday. I believe that keeping a dogs mind active is key to keeping them from missing their loving owners.

Other key points worth noting:

.: We're only a short walk from the park, hollywell dene and seaton sluice beach.
.: Robson & Prescott vets is only a 2 minute walk away should it ever be needed.
.: I am awaiting a start date for a canine first aid course.

    Dawn did a great job of looking after our two dogs and had both a kind and patient manner, despite some of the challenges she endured with our boisterous younger pup! She demonstrated being a well knowledged and experienced dog owner/ handler which set me at ease about leaving them with a stranger.

    Ned thoroughly enjoyed his stay and was spoilt rotten, laying on sofas and sleeping in the bed. I enjoyed my holiday more knowing he was happy x
