About Violet

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. Im home throughout the week and weekends 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 hurt. 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.

I have just been away and left my 2 year old shih Tzu with Violet and her lovely family for 6 days. It’s the first time my boy has ever been anywhere overnight without me so I was extremely anxious. I was amazed at how quickly he settled in with his new holiday family. I got daily updates and photo’s on my boy’s activities which was so lovely and it was clear to see he was comfortable, happy and well cared for. In the end I managed to relax and enjoy my holiday. Violet and her family have done such a wonderful job I am so so grateful. I will definitely be using Violet for her dog sitting services again and I highly recommend her for your dogs home away from home.

I left Ted with Violet and her family for the first time yesterday. It was also his first time staying with anyone else. After meeting Violet I knew Ted would be in safe loving hands and when I picked him up it was clear he had been well taken care of that day. I managed to enjoy my day with peace of mind and Ted will be staying with Violet and her family when I go away for a week in May. I highly recommend Violet for your fur baby. Her children are adorable, her home is lovely and her communication is excellent.
