About Gavin

Licensed by Eastleigh Borough Council to board animals.

We are a dog loving family who love to care for dogs as members of our family.

Gavin is a trained and qualified dog handler experienced in handling larger breeds; GSD, Rottweiler & Doberman. We are also familair with a range of breeds, large & small and have owned several breeds, including Border Collies, GSD's, Lurchers, Dobermans, Rottweillers and Alaskan Malamutes. We are comfortable walking in all weathers (If your dog is) and really enjoy the companionship of dogs and being outside. The girls love to pamper and play with our doggy guests. We have access to a variety of walking areas, including parks, wooded areas and a purpose built enclosed dog exercise area at a nearby country park. Gavin has a sound knowledge of canine first aid and recognising illness & disease, so your best friend will be in safe hands. We look forward to making new canine friends.

We were so happy with how well looked after Archie was with Gavin, his family and their beautiful three dogs. We were kept updated on how he was getting on and their home was perfect for him, a big enclosed back garden and pals to play with. We were able to fully enjoy our holiday knowing he was in such great hands! Thank you so much!

I would highly recommend Gavin - he took great care of both of my weimaraners. They came home happy and worn out. Sometimes my eldest dog can loose weight when she is away, but she came back in great condition. I chose Gavin as another Weimaraner owner had used him and said how good he is. I would wholeheartedly concur with this. Gavin also gave me regular updates on how the girls were getting on.
