About Amy

We are an active family that love animals! We have two dogs, a cat and two rabbits as pets, plus a myriad of chickens, ducks and pigs.

We want to be able to provide a real in home service for people whose pets would much prefer a stable family enviroment, and lots of human company, as opposed to a kennel arrangement. We can do long or short stays, and are happy to work in with you as to what your pet's needs are.

We have a large one acre sheep netting fenced property and any dogs that come to stay will be treated with daily walks to the beach, plenty of ball chase games and for particuarly active dogs, I can take them on the bike for a daily energy releasing 6km run.

I am a stay at home mum and our three kids are homeschooled, so your best friend will have constant human and animal company. We love to give cuddles, belly rubs and ear scratches and have a multitude of balls and tug toys for your buddy to play with while theyre here.

Our current daily routine is a 30min fast pack run on the bike at 5am.. this helps to burn energy and results in a calmer dog. It also helps the dogs establish their social group. The dogs then play at home with our kids and I for the morning. In the afternoon, we usually head to the beach at the end of the road for a 1.5-2hour walk along the beach or around our local village.

I can also give functional grooming and clipping for those dogs that need it.

We do have separately fenced areas around the property should particular dogs not get on so well. We are also working towards having an outdoor run if your dog is ok with being kept outside. Our dogs sleep inside, and if yours is used to that too, then we can house them in the spare room or in the lounge, depending on their needs and friendliness with the other dogs

Get in touch to see if we have space available. We look forward to meeting your animal friend soon!

Amy was very good with our dog. She made our dog feel at home as she don't eat and drink any where else. We recommend Amy for anyone who needs a doggy sitter. And we also will be having Amy look after our dog again in the future. Thank you Amy for a job well done
