About Michael

We are a family with lots of dog-love to give: Chico is 19, Luna 13. And their Dad, Michael.  

We all love looking after dogs and it's so great for dogs and their attached humans around here. Ours is a fairly large house with a large garden and with nearby woods and 3 large parks - Wardown Park, Pope's Meadow, People's Park - all within a short walking distance.  

We have lived in this house for the past 18 years. There is plenty of room for your pet to wander. We are experienced in looking after all sorts of dogs.  

I work from home a lot of the time - running my own company. My daughter has a normal school day. My son still lives at home. So, more often than not, there is 1 of us around overseeing your dog.  

We have a good-sized garden, but we will always keep your dog on a long leash, there, unless we absolutely know they are a non-bolter. We would never leave your dog in the garden alone, with always one of us keeping them company and keeping an eye on them. And making sure they have water.  

Dogs we will not host: Rescue dogs, Staffies, Bulldogs, Dobermans, Rottweilers or any crosses of these breeds. Nor pure bred Huskies - sorry they are amazing, but we have tried and they have destroyed us! We realise all dogs are different, but that's where we stand. After several trials, we do not host Rescued dogs any more. It is too traumatic an experience for them, being 'abandoned' by their new no doubt very loving owners, and because of the unknowable psychological damage inflicted before their Rescue, it just makes it too stressful for them to be hosted in our experience.

As always, Michael and his family have been great. We were away for a week and couldn't take our dog with us. They helped us and ensured Wes was well looked after.
