About Gemma

Licensed: No.18/03532 DBS checked

Jeff and I are 2 Dog Lovers. I am a retired languages teacher at home all day looking to welcome dogs for their holidays. So I can also speak to them in French and Spanish if necessary!

The dogs always have company and are never left alone for longer than an hour if I have to go shopping or for a medical appointment.

We live on the Goyt valley, and go for long walks twice a day along the river bank. All dogs are treated just like they are our own dog. They get lots of cuddles on our knees on the couch.

Our little dog Pepper is a jackapoo and loves playing with other dogs. We are just a minute's walk from a large playing field for lots of ball chasing, and the field leads on to the Goyt valley for miles and miles of paths, valleys, rivers and parkland which we walk around every morning and evening.

We have a fully fenced, gated, secure and enclosed garden for the dogs to run around in complete safety. if it's warm enough the door is left open. If it's cold they go out at least every hour

All our guests sleep together in an area next to the kitchen and I have a selection of crates, blankets and beds which are regularly washed and disinfected. I also have leads and bowls and many soft toys, balls and treats. So all you need to bring is their food (but if you do forget, don't worry because I have high quality dried and wet food which is grain free). We have both owned various shaped and sized happy dogs all our lives and look forward to having your dog come and stay with us.

I only take dogs that are beagle sized or smaller now due to hurting my arm last year.

I am retired from teaching and at home all day and the dog boarding is a way to make a little extra money to spend on my two granddaughters whilst doing something we both love, caring for dogs. You don't have to take my word for any of this. Before you book, contact me and come and meet us so we can reassure you that we will do our best to care for your dog in the way that you want. We know how scary it is to have to leave your dog with someone you don't know the first time.

Gemma was fantastic with our dog Charlie. We were anxious about leaving him, as it was the first time, and he is quite a 'velcro' cockapoo. Gemma was so calm and matter-of-fact with him, when we dropped him off, we were immediately reassured. While we were away Gemma sent photos and videos everyday of Charlie having a great time out on walks with other dogs, and snuggling on the sofa with Gemma and her family and other dogs. He was obviously relaxed and enjoying the company of other dogs, which was lovely to see. We'll have no hesitation in leaving Charlie with Gemma again.

Gemma was the perfect dog minder!

It was the first time I had left my puppy Toby with a dog minder so was quite nervous about how he would be.

From Day 1 of me being away, I had photos every day showing me Toby running round with all his new doggie friends and in the house settling himself on Gemma's feet ( as he does with me at night) to fall asleep!

It was so lovely to see, and reassuring to know he was with someone who is looking after your dog like you would.

Thank you so much Gemma and her husband Jeff for looking after Toby which helped me enjoy my holiday away even more knowing he was in good hands!
