About our Home Boarding

We started looking after dogs professionally last year and have looked after over 40 lovely doggies. We are very dog orientated and enjoy walking and playing with dogs without the full time commitment of ownership. We don't own any dogs or cats of our own at present but have had over 40 years dog ownership, we are now getting repeat bookings, which for us, is brilliant as it builds our relationship with your doggie and enhances their experience. We are Dog FIRST AID trained and we are FULLY INSURED and COUNCIL REGISTERED, we use security video surveillance when out with your doggy for safety purposes. We believe the path to happiness is paved with paw prints....happy doggies = happy holidays = happy you.


We have a medium sized escape proof garden with a 7ft fence. Your dog would have free roam of our pet safe, clean home and garden and would be allowed to sleep and relax where they wanted. We only care for 4 doggies at a time. No kennels/cages/restraints are used unless you request and provide it. Your doggy wouldn't be left alone during their stay and we have a hatchback car with dog seat clips for safe transportation. Our home is at the top of a quiet cul de sac and away from busy main roads.


Your dog would be walked at least twice a day (for at least 1.5 - 3 hours) at either West Kirby Beach, Arrowe Park or Royden Park. We also have behind our home a large open grassed areas should your dog only require short or small walks. Photos and updates will be sent to you regularly, during your doggies holiday by text, email or what's app whichever method suits you. If your doggie has anxiety around other dogs, we can help socialise them with slow introduction to playmates.
Small and medium dogs only. Bigger dogs or staffies cannot be accommodated at this time.

Health & Hygiene:

We require your dog to be fully vaccinated & kennel cough, wormed and microchipped (with proof and dates) and house trained. We would require the details of a registered vet (in case of emergency we are already registered with a very local vet). Also an emergency contactable person especially if you are out of the country. We can care for pets on medication.
You would provide all food/treats/medication for the duration of your dogs stay.

Comments from Our Guests


"Our dog just came home from her first stay with Cindy and Pete at Happy Walkies on the Wirral and it was fantastic! It started with her running into their house when we arrived, which she's never done at a dog minders before. While we were away, we were able to relax and enjoy knowing she was being cared for and having fun. Cindy sent us regular photos and updates. When we picked her up she was relaxed and happy. We are so glad to find a dog minder that only takes small dogs and a limited number at a time. Thanks again Cindy and Pete and we'll see you again soon!"

"Basil, our 7 month old Cockerpoo has stayed with Cindy & Pete on three separate occasions... and is booked in for some overnight stays in the coming months... such a warm,friendly couple who are true animal lovers accommodating to your animals every need in an exceptionally lovely, well maintained home with beautiful gardens ... in a fantastic location for local walks or nearby beaches & parks.....the dogs in their care have the run of the place and Basil runs to go in when we get there.... it's such a relief to find such nice people to care for our Doggy when we can't.... totally trusted...5 all round ..... thank you C & P xxxx"

"We have just returned from three weeks in South Africa and cannot thank Cindy and Pete enough for the way they have looked after our two pugs, Arthur and Elvis. It was a great weight off our minds to know that they were being treated like members of the family. We received regular updates and pictures and the boys clearly had a great time and loved every minute of it. Indeed, we now have two sulking pugs to contend with, as we think they would have stayed longer if they could, lol! We are happy to recommend Cindy and Pete to anyone who is looking for a kind and caring couple who clearly love dogs and will ensure that they are kept active and stimulated and are cared for in a safe environment. We have already booked them again! (As an example of how thoughtful they are, the picture below was taken by Pete and Cindy and sent to us on our wedding day in South Africa, so even though the boys couldn't be with us in person, they were there in spirit)"

"Oscar, our 5 year old cockapoo has just returned from his first stay with the wonderful Cindy & Pete. They are truly amazing people with a real passion for caring for dogs. Oscar had so much fun, lots of lovely walks and plenty cuddles. Their lovely house and big garden is very dog friendly, Oscar soon found where the toy box and treats were kept! Whilst we were away Cindy kept us up to date with pictures and updates- this meant we were really able to relax knowing he was in perfect hands in his home-from-home. Thank you Cindy & Pete- Oscar is already planning his next stay with you :-) xxx"

"My cockapoo (Macy) and Shihpoo (Coco) really enjoyed their stay with Cindy and Pete who went above and beyond to ensure my two were very well looked after & that I was regularly kept up to date with photos and texts. I have already recommended Cindy and Pete to family members and will be using them again in future. Thank you both on behalf of the dogs and me :) x "

From Sophie Connolly on

"What can I say Boo my 12 week old puppy absolutely adores Cindy & Pete and they are now part of the family. This was the first time I have ever used a doggy day care service but it has been amazing right from the start. I know that Boo is safe and has one on one attention and also making sure Pete is tired out after a day with her. Never have I ever seen a dog that runs as fast as she can from the car to the front door when she is booked in. That in itself shows how amazing Cindy & Pete are :) Without a doubt I would recommend them for anyone looking for a home from home stay for their four legged friend. "
