My husband and I are retired and live alone now that our family has left home. We have been looking after friends' dogs whilst they are on holiday or in hospital. We have very much enjoyed doing this and the dogs seem to have been happy with their holidays with us, or so their owners tell us, that we have decided to devote more time to doing this. Whilst we no longer have a dog ourselves, we have had several dogs of different shapes and sizes and breeds and other pets, including horses, throughout our lives. We are normally at home most of the day so would have plenty of time to spend with your dog.
We have a cosy
bungalow, situated in the Devon countryside, with an Aga type stove and woodburner for those cold winter nights and comfy sofas for day time relaxing (should you not allow your dog to do this at home we would respect your wishes).Your dog of course
is always on the the same level as us in the bungalow and would have access to us day or night. Your pet would normally
sleep in our sitting room and you may bring his own bed if you wish or we have comfortable
duvets. We have a large well fenced garden, with a secure gate, in which your dog can play whenever he or she likes throughout the day and also a
Walks are taken on nearby Dartmoor or along the many footpaths around the area. Walks may be as long or as short as you require for your dog.We normally walk twice a day for an hour each time but can be flexiible as every dog has different requirements. We try to make your dog's stay a home from home with as little disruption to their daily routine as possible. In fact your dog will become a member of our family and Top Dog whilst he /she is with us.
A fantastic pet paradise!
Our dog Ollie looked relaxed and happy at the meet and greet and when we returned for the booking to leave him for the night he felt quite at home.
The location is perfect and Heather is a fantastic pet-sitter which meant that we could relax and enjoy our evening without having to worry about Ollie. In fact when we went to pick him up the next day I think he wanted to stay longer!
