We highly recommend Alex & Jo we had our three Cockapoos there for 10 days and felt totally happy and relaxed that they were being well taken care of. Alex contacted us every day with pictures and stories of what they had been up to during the day. He even bathed them after their muddy walks, it was like a doggy Hotel where they ruled the roast.

We Can’t recommend them enough and will definitely go back and use their services again.

We have spoken to family and friends about how good they are.

We hadn’t left our 2 year old Vizsla, Freddy, with any body before, and felt a little nervous about doing so. But after taking him along to meet Alex we were totally reassured.

We cannot recommend Alex and Jo enough. Freddy had plenty of space and a holiday chalet for shelter! Lots of attention and stimulation and walks with some other dogs, as per the photos Alex sent. Everything was secure. If Freddy could talk I’m sure he would say he had an amazing time. And we couldn’t be happier and would certainly go back to Alex and Jo next time we are away.
