About our Home Boarding

I have a very easy and natural way with animals and spent the first half of my life working and playing with mainly horses and dogs. I started boarding dogs last year as my rescue dog benefited from the company of friends dogs so much it was a natural next step, and I haven't looked back and am fully licensed. I have a trial period with all dogs wanting to board or come walking. This involves a couple of walks together with the owner, a home visit of an afternoon and or sleep over, this develops a connection with me and ensures that every one gets along happily.


The dogs are free to enjoy the whole of the down stairs area with a dog flap into a large rear garden that is secured on all sides. they also have a safe secure area in the front garden. The dogs mainly sleep in the sitting room, but I do allow dogs to sleep in my bedroom if that is what they do in their own home. There is a wet room for warm water washing when needed.


I walk two to three times a day between 30 min to two hours depending on the dogs requirements. I have a number of different walks that I do new bridge along both sides of the river, Henbury woods, Buckland Beacon, Parke and the great plantation, and on the moors (depending on individual dogs training around livestock)

Health & Hygiene:

I require copies of vaccinations prior to stay and proof of flea and worm treatment.
I have a form to fill in that covers all the dogs personal requirements and emergency information.
I do not take females in season or puppies under 7 months

We were very pleased with Jaspers stay at Katie's. He was very happy when we picked him up! Katie treated him as one of the family which was great and she comes across as very king and caring!

I live near Dartmoor so lots of fabulous walks.
Take the Peartree junction off the A38 and head toward Poundsgate, turn right at the Lavender House Hotel sign, past the Lavender (careful a very sharp bend) continue up the road past Melrose house. 50 yards is Hele Cross Road turn right and I am the 5th driveway on the left

Open Hours

I am available most days though out walking a lot so best to call my mobile no or email. I do like to do a free trail session before a 24 hr boarding just to make sure we all get along well and it helps settle your dog in when they come.
I am now a qualified Canine first aider
