I have owned, worked with and shown dogs for 30 years. I class myself as a very responsible, honest and trust worthy person. I hold a full DMBC licence. Also insured. As from this year I'm sorry but i can no longer except un neutered male dogs.
My garden is all secure, enclosed and grassed. Dogs will sleep in our home, so they have a feel of a home from home environment. Sleeping in their own bed with own toys ect.
Exercise will also play a big part of their stay with us. As instructed by their owners. Ò
Health & Hygiene:
All requirements will be carried out with the instructions of owners. Eg medication, vet visits ,

Angie and Gary are top dog sitters, our pudding has a great time and we know she is really cared for and safe with a good home and professional sitters when we need someone to look after our lovely pooch. Highly recommend

Daphne our Cockapoo has just enjoyed a 5 night stay In The Dog House, I was nervous about leaving her while we we're away but as soon as we met Angie and her husband I felt at ease straight away, they are such a lovely couple and their home is a lovely clean secure environment. Daphne has been well looked after and enjoyed plenty of walks and I really appreciated receiving pupdates and pictures and could see how happy she was, we will definitely use Angie again, fantastic service.

We have boarded our pet Labrador (Sally) with Angie twice now. The most recent stay was for 2 weeks whilst we were in the Caribbean.
Angie has a very clean home that is pet friendly and the rear garden is totally secure.
Our Sally got took on a long walk every day and Angie sent me photo updates so I could see she was enjoying herself. This means a great deal.
Angie is now our go to person when we need a reliable trustworthy and friendly pet boarder. Superb service!

This week was Luna's 3rd time staying with Angie and it has definitely become a home away from home for her. She is so comfortable there and so well looked after. You can see the relationship angie has with the dogs she cares for. Luna always comes back not only looking amazing but also shattered from all the long walking Angie always does with them. The only place I would ever take her and she really is my fur baby ðŸ¶ðŸ‘¶ðŸ¼. I highly recommend for any other dog owners ðŸŒŸ

Thanks Angie for having Boston for the last 2 weeks. I went on holiday knowing he was in a calm,natural and loving home.
I was wanting a home from home expereience where he could potter about as part of the family and that's exactly what he got.I got to see him playing and interacting with the other dogs before I left him,which was nice.
I also got What's app updates and videos of this walks, which was lovely as he looked so happy, and that made me and my family happy when we was missing him on holiday.(see attached).
I know he'll be super excited next time he walks down Angies drive,where she'll be waiting with a big kiss and a cuddle for him.ðŸ˜˜ðŸ¶

My Jack Russell Polly absolutely loved staying with Angie and the other dogs she was caring for.
Polly was nervous at first but soon came round as Angie is so caring and puts the dog first

When we moved to the UK a couple of years ago, we spent several weeks searching online for the right home boarding service for our dogs. We found Angie through this site and from the first contact knew that we wanted her to take care of our dogs. Both Jodie (Pomeranian cross) and Ned (Jack Russell cross) are both rescue dogs and we wanted to make sure that they were staying in a place they would feel comfortable in. Angie is absolutely fantastic with the dogs â€“ she knows how to approach them and make them feel relaxed and welcome in her home. Her property is secure and immaculately clean. Angie takes them for long walks in the woods and sends us regular updates with photos and videos of their stay whilst we are away from home or on holiday, so we can see how they are going. Lots of wagging tails and Angie even buys them a pie on Saturday (at our request). Jodie and Ned have stayed with Angie a number of times, sometimes for 3 weeks at a time and are always very content (and sometimes seem a bit sulky the day after we pick them up). Both Angie and Gary are such lovely people and true dog lovers â€“ we couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Our Pud has been coming to The Doghouse for a couple of years now and we are all so grateful for the safe and loving space that is provided by Angie Shephard. You couldn't ask for a more professional and kind dog sitter, top class! Thanks again we will always recommend your great service.

We found Angies's " In The Dog House" dog home boarding on this web site and so pleased that we did.
We contacted Angie who is fully council licensed in caring for dogs in her home. We introduced our Honey and Daisy Chihuahua cross breed to Angie and her family and were very much so welcomed. Straightaway we felt welcome in her lovely , warm,homely, clean, immaculate home environment. We knew that the girls had settled straightaway because they just wanted to play and run around the very tidy, secure cared for garden. I felt completely confident and settled at leaving our two fur babies knowing that they will have the best care and attention possible. Angie contacted us with pictures of the girls having a lovely time. They were obviously fussed , groomed and cared for from all the family. When we picked them up we knew that they'd had a great time as they were so subdued when we went home. We could tell that they liked Angie very much and were comfortable with her. We are definitely leaving them again with Angie and would have no hesitation whatsoever in letting Honey and Daisy stay with her and the family again. Thank you....Julie and Paul and Honey and Daisy ðŸ¾ðŸ¾

Our 6 month old Labrador puppy Luna had her first stay with Angie last night. It was her first time staying away from home and she was more than happy! I was so nervous as she is still young but Angie was very reassuring and happy to keep me updated with how she was getting on. Luna has slept non-stop since we got home so it is obvious what a great time she had both with Angie and the other lovely dogs staying there. Overall, I could not recommend Angie enough, we will definitely be leaving Luna in her safe and trustworthy hands again!

Massive thanks to Angie Shephard for having our Pudding to stay again :) we're so happy that Pud absolutely loves going to the Dog House! as soon as she knows we're getting near to Angie's she's really excited and when we pick her up she comes home smiling so big because she's had the best time going on long walks, getting loads of attention and being with other brilliant dogs. Thanks Angie for the lovely messages and updates when we were away it makes a difference to see how they're getting on and thanks for providing a safe and loving environment where dogs can be happy while their families are away and just have fun. Angie and Gary at In The Doghouse are amazing 100% 10/10

My dog Oscar & my sister's dog Ozzie stayed with Angie for 8 nights.We were so lucky to get booked in as Angie had a canceÄºlation as we also tried to book in with her last year.
I must say, I'm very fussy who looks & cares for my dog as he is my best friend but I can honestly say, hand on heart, that our dogs could not have gone anywhere better & be cared, loved & pampered so much.
We brought our dogs to meet Angie before our holiday so they could have a look around her beautiful house & garden & Angie could meet them too.
Whilst we were on holiday, Angie kept sending me messages & videos of our dogs & they looked so happy which gave us peace of mind knowing that they were happy & secure in a home from home environment.
Angie is such a lovely, friendly person who is obviously passionate about looking after other people's pets.Her house & garden are immaculate.
She met all our pets needs & more!
When we collected our dogs, they were so chilled & kept going to see Angie.
I would never hesitate to let our dogs stay with Angie again but the problem being, she gets booked in so quickly which goes to show how popular she is so all I would say is...book now to avoid dissappointment....Angie is the best & I truly know that you won't find anyone better!
Thanks so much for looking after our dogs Angie & I hope to return again.

My 9 year old lab Olly has just had his first holiday with Angie, 'In the Dog House'.
Olly was very happy and relaxed when I returned to pick him up. Clearly been spoilt and well looked after. Kept to his own daily routine including walks in the wood and basking in the sunshine in their beautiful secure garden - oh and sneaking the odd cuddle on the sofa - loved it! Highly recommend, in fact already booked his next holiday!
From Janette James on
My little dog Archie has just been with Angie for a week for the first time. I felt very confident leaving my dog with her and Angie sent me updates to keep me feeling confident that he was enjoying life with her. I would have every confidence in the future leaving my little dog again. Angie and her hubby are lovely people and I would recommend anyone wanting to use her to look after their dogs.
From Jeanette Johnson on
My puppy absolutely loves going to Angie's for his holidays, he never wants to come home!
She constantly texts and sends videos and photos so your mind is at rest and is very experienced with dogs of all shapes and sizes. Would highly recommend and wouldn't send my dog anywhere else.

' In the dog house ' with Angie, our 6 month old patterdale willow has just had an amazing 4 days with Angie and her lovely family, we went to visit a few weeks before our holiday to introduce willow to angie, she was so friendly with willow and I could see that willow was happy to be there, also that her home was safe and secure. Already booked willow to stay again, Highly recommend, very professional, excellent with our little baby girl Willow 24/03/2017

From Karen Gordon on
We highly recommend 'Angel' Angie Shephard's Doghouse service! It was our 5 year old staffy's first time away and she was really looked after. She had a good time being with two other dogs and got to go on plenty of walks and have playtime in Angies home and very secure garden. It has put our mind at ease that she was certainly in good hands and we would definitely use Angie's service again. Thanks a million xx

Our Patterdale terrier, Alfie, has stayed with Angie twice and on both occasions, he has loved every minute of it. He has socialised with other dogs, which he loves, and Angie has been brilliant with him. He loves the long walks Angie takes him on and then relaxes on Angie's settee!! Would highly recommend IN THE DOG HOUSE
From Joanne on
5 star boarding - what a gem!
Angie looked after Radley my Shnauzer whilst I was abroad and I'm sure he loved every minute of it.
He was able to socialise with another dog. Was taken on long walks and then settled down on Angies settee to rest. He had the run of the house and was able to run in and out of her enclosed garden when he wanted.
Would not hesitate in taking Radley back to Angies when I have my next holiday - which is very soon
