Dog Boarding
Gemma, 18-08-2021
I highly recommend Josephine as a dog sitter. My 2 whippets are very shy and sensitive but within hours I received photos of them looking calm, happy and at home. Any whippet owner will know that is testament to a good sitter!! Josephine was easy to communicate with when making arrangements, and was very accommodating of times and dates. She was also very good at sending a variety of pics and videos without being overwhelming. My dogs were happy around Dexter and the other dogs being cared for - which also shows that Josephine makes good choices on how to mix , and creates a good environment for this to happen successfully. I will not hesitate to use Josephine’s service again. Thanks!

Wow, what great service and lovely people. I was really unsure if my dog would settle as it was his first time away from us. we looked around and couldn't find the right kennel/boarding for him. However, we came across Ollie and Helena. Their communication was great from the start and with the meet and great offered we took it. straight away my dog (and me) felt welcomed. Helena and Ollie were lovely and great natured and so were their 5 dogs, Rex didn't feel threatened and hit it off with the other dogs straight away, at this point I knew that we had made the right choice. Helena and Ollie were very professional in their role making sure they asked for proof of vaccinations and asking questions regarding Rex's needs, likes and dislikes. during Rex's 3 day stay the brilliant communication continued with videos and pictures showing that Rex was settled and enjoying his time. this helped me relax knowing he was in good care. I'm so glad we found Helena and Ollie after endless searching for the right place. I will be recommending to others and will be using their services again. Thank you both so much for taking great care of Rex, our lovely dachshund 😊
