About Gary

I'm a retired dog lover who loves the outdoors. I have lived with cats and dogs from a young age. Carla was my 1st dog, a German shepherd who loved the briar dene and swimming in the sea. Holly was my 2nd dog, a golden retriever, a beautiful family pet who loved muck ! I then added a young Jack Russell rescue to the family, Megan who had a few behavioural issues but adapted quite well to a loving family environment. We also introduced a cat to the family who had kittens which was a lovely experience.

I now live alone and miss having pets around the house. I travel frequently so can't justify a full time dog hence why I have decided to embark on a new adventure and offer dog sitting services.

Living 5 minutes from Whitley bay beach I'm in an ideal location to exercise your dog on the sands or the links. I love the outdoors so would spend hours of pleasure with your dog.

I'm very flexible with regards to services. I live in a nice quiet cul-de-sac in west monkseaton in a terraced house with a good size lounge and have a delightful medium sized garden to the rear which is an ideal haven for pets. I'm also happy to travel to your property to tend to your pets needs and walk locally if required.

Tracy, 2019-12-03

Meet and greet went really well so felt easy leaving Alfie with Gary. This is the first time leaving Alfie with a boarder, Gary messaged to say Alfie settled well and was eating, he was playful the next day and all was going well we’ll. This made our holiday more enjoyable knowing Alfie was ok. When we picked Alfie up he was happy settled and of course pleased to see us. Gary looked after Alfie really well and I would not hesitate to use him again. A fantastic first experience thanks of course to Gary!
