About Richard

My wife and I are experienced dog owners. Unfortunately, we lost our own dog Bella 6 months ago to cancer.

We both work from home full time and miss the companionship of a furry friend. We had grown accustomed to walks in the morning, at lunch and after work, and taking a few little breaks to play with our dog throughout the day.

We have comfortable, dog friendly space indoors and a nice secure garden. 

I work mainly from my garden office at the end of our garden, which dogs are very welcome to join me in, and my wife works from the living room in our house, so your dog will never be lonely whilst staying with us. We will be very happy to fuss over your dog throughout the day. We both have an hour lunch break, where we go for a 30 minute walk and we are happy to take your dog for another 30 minute walk when we finish work at 5pm.

Our back drive leads directly onto the Cheam Playing fields and Nonsuch Park, and we also used to take our dog Bella to a fully fenced in small park (Yardley Park) only a few minutes walk away from our house.  

Any dog staying with us during the day will have full access to our open-plan downstairs of our house with a comfy and cozy living room (chilling and snoozing on sofas allowed). There is also a spacious kitchen and dining room with a nice corner sofa too. The dining room extension is our favourite room in the house as it has wide bifold doors, so your dog can lounge on the sofa here too with a full view of the garden and its abundant wildlife. If the weather is nice enough, we leave the door in the dining room to our secure garden open, so your dog can come in and out as he/she pleases. We have plenty of spaces for a dog bed as well if your dog prefers this.

If a dog stays with us overnight, he/she will be welcome to have access to our upstairs, where we have 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. We are happy to have a dog bed in our bedroom so your dog does not feel lonely at night.

We are at a time in our lives when one of our adult children is at University and the other one, still living at home, is starting a full-time Apprenticeship soon, so will mostly be at work during the day.

We don’t want to get another dog yet, but we do want to help those in need of dog care.

We only look to care for 1 or 2 dogs from the same pack so we can give them our full attention and love.
