About Steve

Hi, we're Steve & Nuing, parents to two wonderful kids (ages 10 and 14) and a minature (ish) Labradoodle (age 3).

I work from home and Nuing works part time locally, so we have lots of flexibility over our day and offer a high standard of dog boarding in a family home environment. Our dog , Pippin is always home with us and is very friendly and sociable. He gets on with other dogs, particularly spaniel breeds or any of the 'poo's'. He can feel intimidated by dogs that are larger than him, so we tend to draw a line of approx 20kg as the maximum size/weight for dog boarding. We also have our kids, so it's important any dogs staying with us are child friendly.

As lifetime dog lovers we got into pet sitting having used other pet sitters for Pippin as we prefer over kennels. Pippin loves the compay of another dog, he gets lots of attention and he needs a lot of exercise, so he gets two good walks a day of 30-60 minutes each time.

Pet sitting works well for us and provides some varied extra company for Pippin, which he loves. Plus our kids love having other dogs to stay!

Our house is detached with a fully enclosed and secure garden and plenty of room to run arround. Dogs have the run of dowstairs, access to upstairs is restriced to humans only! Plenty of space for 2-3 dogs and a range of environments to ensure any dog can be comfortable. We tend to only book one dog at a time, the only time there might be two is for a short period where bookings overlap.

More than happy to accomodate any speacil requirements on request - just contact us to discuss.

Please note all dogs either boarding or staying for daycare should be up-to-date with vaccinations and flea/worm treatment.

We will send doggy updates and pictures daily, plus happy to do videocalls with your pet when you miss them :)

Meet & greet before your booking is welcome.

Mia just loves her time with Pippin and we know that she is so well looked after and loved. We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful holiday home for our girl when we need one. We can’t recommend Steve highly enough.

We can’t thank Steve and his caring family enough for looking after our precious Mia whilst we were away. The frequent photos, videos and reassuring messages meant we could relax and enjoy our holiday knowing Mia was not only settled and being loved but also having a wonderful time herself, especially with her new best friend, Pippin! We are so relieved that we have found a second home for Mia. She’ll be back very soon!

Thank you!
