About John

After 25 years of having at least 1 Boxer in our lives we now find ourselves with a quiet empty house. Though not yet ready to get another dog of our own we dearly miss the sound of little paws padding around the house.

UPDATE

Well we finally realised we can no longer stand not having a Boxer in our lives.

So we are very pleased to introduce Margaux, the newest member of our family.

Nothing will ever replace our beloved Layla but she certainly will help to fill the massive gap Layla left in our lives and hearts when she passed away.

I am semi retired and work an

hour on my laptop in the kitchen. This gives me the time for dog sitting, day care and dog walking. Your cherished pet will be with me 100% of the time of their visit and will have unrestricted access to our medium sized secure garden.

Walks are all around us in Broughton with a park 2 minutes walk away and forest walks just 3 minutes drive. I am a passionate and loving dog owner and would relish the opportunity to welcome yours into our house to turn it back into a home again. I will only take 1 dog at a time for daycare and 24 hour stays unless they are from the same owner in which case you can bring them all.

I have an up to date DBS check.

Our home has been inspected and licensed by Flintshire County Council.

Your pet is welcome to visit in advance and check us out, they can even bring you along too! Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.

Doggy Day Care
Amy, 2018-03-29

Hank & Bramble went to the Jolly Doghouse for day care whilst my partner was away and I at work.

I can honestly say John and his wife were so friendly, professional, kind and genuine dog lovers.

My two were fed, walked, loved and came home absolutely shattered after a day of playing.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use their service again and can’t recommend them enough!

Thank you again!!

Doggy Day Care
Irene, 2018-03-15

We really cannot recommend The Jolly Doghouse highly enough. John is quite obviously a genuine dog lover and our little one just took to him straight away. We are first time dog owners but we felt able to leave our precious pooch for the first time ever, completely confident that he was in safe and caring hands. The fact that it is one to one attention in a friendly home environment is just wonderful. We will be booking again and couldn't consider going anywhere else.
