I have over 30 years experience, keeping dogs of various breeds and currently have two Diesel (Staffie) and Izzy (JRT/Westie). My dogs have all been trained to basic standards sit, stay, leave and recall. i have also worked in a veterinary surgery for a number of years and have gained some very basic knowledge about the health care of dogs. Older dogs or those with ongoing health problems are welcome.

This was our first time we left our French bulldog
to be looked after by a very friendly and professional dog Carer named Mary. We were not disappointed. Right from the first meeting to the end she not only looked after our pup but also looked after us in many ways. Just like as if it was her own family. She kept in touch with us all through out of our 4 week stay abroad. Sending us WhatsApp video and picture. He developed a good routine and has improved his discipline and manners. His time keeping for his meals is gone much better. His anxiety and fears of cars passing by has changed. All this is not possible by any dog Carer other than Mary who I personally think is a behaviourist specialist and loves dogs. It was one to one care and there were no other dogs in her care during the 4 week period we were away. Will definitely be booking her again in the near future.

We felt relaxed knowing our dog was in safe hands but not only that he had a great time too. Very homely and they take care to keep to his routine. There are little updates on Facebook if you want to keep up with what your dog is up to.
We would recommend them and would definitely board our dog there again.
From Paula edwards on
Thanks Mary for making Amber feel so at home while I was away. Its nice to know she has a holiday home to go to, with lovely friends. See you all soon :-)
From George Williams on
Mary is just fantastic with our dogs, we especially liked the updates and Facebook page so we could keep in touch. This is a great alternative than kennals and one we know our doges enjoyed. Thank you we will be back.
From Marie Norman on
I have recently had knee replacement surgery and in order to aid my recovery I boarded my dog "Archie" with Mary for nearly four weeks. It was obvious from the beginning that Mary was a real dog lover offering a home from home boarding with lots of love and fun throughout his stay. Once I knew Archie had settled in I was free from any concerns enabling me to concentrate on getting well. Throughout the 4 weeks Mary constantly sent me video's and pictures of Archie keeping me posted. I already knew he was in expert hands but the joy of receiving them was instrumental in helping me on the road to recovery. I looked forward to them. I would not hesitate to recommend Mary & Pooch Boarding to any dog lover as I would never contemplate kennels knowing he could be so well cared for in a loving, safe and professional environment.
From Terri Morgan on
Our puppy had a fabulous time staying with Mary, she was treated as a member of the family, given lots of love and attention and I would definitely use Pooch Home Boarding again.
From Kelly on
Our 6 month rottweiler stayed with pooch boarding while we went on our honeymoon. She absolutely loved her stay and was treated very well. We could view pictures and videos on almost a daily basis which was great. Just wish there was availability for our next holiday :)
From Sonia Croft on
We have used pooch home boarding twice, Doug seems to enjoy going there and playing with Mary's dogs
We will continue to take Doug there when we go away in future
From Emma burns on
I would like to thank Mary for looking after my puppy Benji while we were on holiday. He returned to us better behaved and had throughly enjoyed himself. I will definitely book Pooch Home Booking for our next holiday. Thank you Mary
From Mandy Gardner on
So happy to have found a home-from-home place to stay for our family pooch. She clearly loved her holiday and was reluctant to come home! I didn't worry at all as I knew she was in safe hands and an earlier one-night visit had set our mind at rest that she was happy here and got on with the other dogs. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a caring and safe holiday home for their pooch. Thank you!
From Claire Whitehall on
We have left our two dogs with Mary twice and can honestly say she is fantastic. Our dogs were relaxed and happy and seeing the photos of them made our holiday so much more relaxing. I would recommend leaving your loved pet with her 100%!
From H L on
Ruby and Peaches really enjoyed their stay at Pooch Home Boarding. Mary kept in regular contact with pictures etc. This helped us to enjoy our holiday, knowing that they were happy and well cared for. I will definitely be recommending Pooch Home Boarding to friends and family.
From Lydia on
I could not recommend Mary enough, I had brilliant communication whilst away via Marys facebook page. Molly was cared for as if she was Mary's own pet. I could tell when I picked up my baby that she had experienced no stress at being left she was happy and healthy...Molly will be making regular trips to Pooch Home Boarding I can go away knowing my dog is also having a lovely holiday with someone special...thank you so much Mary. xx
From Kay Moughton on
A brilliant place to leave your pets - we would 100% recommend. Mary did a fantastic job of looking after our pups.
From H & L on
