I was very anxious about putting Roxy in dog boarding as she is an old dog now and never been in kennels or boarding etc, however we went to visit Sarah and Bella and the two dogs got on well. Roxy stayed for a week and had a great time with her new friend Bella! I would recommend Sarah's services to anyone looking for dog boarding! I'll definitely book Roxy in again when I'm away!
