About Violet

*All new and regular dogs welcome, lots of availability from September ☺️*

Hello, I’m Violet and I have had pets all my life and I’ve been home boarding for some years now. I love any type of animal or reptile and have always owned dogs. After losing both my elderly dogs I feel emotionally unable to replace them just yet, but I miss having animals around. I work from home so I’m home throughout the week and my 3 children are all at school.

I only take on dogs from one household at a time so I can ensure your dog or dogs are the centre of my attention. I wouldn't want to take a chance on them clashing with another dog in my home and put them through feeling intimidated, scared, or risk them being attacked. I also wouldn't want them to feel they had to share my attention. It can be a worrying time when a dog is away from their owners and I try to make it as much of a positive and fun experience for them as possible.

My kids adore animals and above all else I’ve raised them to be gentle around all animals and to respect their space. They are always careful to give all the dogs I board space and know to give affection on the dogs terms.

I’m very experienced with handling varying food, diet and care needs for an array of animals. The longest we have boarded a dog for was 10 weeks fairly recently, a lovely Frenchie who we still board when required. We are a stable, friendly and caring family who offer your pet a home from home in a family setting. With no dogs of our own the dogs I care for are always centre of attention as we are very aware how much they miss their own family and we try our best to take their mind off that and make them feel as though they’re with us as a special treat.

Daily boarders, holiday boarders or long term boarders are all welcome, I am reliable, flexible and full of care and compassion. I welcome pre-visits so you can check out where your pet will be staying and who they'll be staying with and we can talk through their personality, likes and dislikes, their routine, diet, exercise and care needs.

I’m always careful to abide fully by care instructions and care for animals like they are children. They can feel fully at home, no sofa, bed or room is out of bounds, they go where they please. We have a spacious garden dogs have access to all day that is safely enclosed by walls and a high fence. The majority of dogs really enjoy being in and out of our garden all day.

I fully understand our pets are part of our family and I always provide consistent contact and regular updates in video, photo and message form as often as you need to know your pet is having a lovely holiday until you can get back to them.

Happy for you to visit our home, it’s a 3 bedroom with a big garden, to see where your pet will stay.

After being let down by someone else on short notice before our wedding we found Violet and her family and met up with them prior to the big day. Mowgli was so excited to meet them and we knew straight away he would be looked after properly. With all the stress already involved with the upcoming event Violet was amazing - kept us up to date with how he was getting on with lots of pictures. When we picked him up you could tell how much he enjoyed his time there which was amazing for us to see. Would not hesitate to use Violet again or recommend her to anyone. Amazing service and such a lovely family.

It was my dogs first time away from home staying with somebody he doesn’t know, and I’m glad it was Violet and her family. He came back happy, with his tail wagging, full, and stimulated yet restful. Violet and her lovely family were such good dog sitters. She kept me informed with picture throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Violet again. You can tell there is a genuine love for family in a happy home!
