We boarded our Vizsla, Elek, at Droolers for 9 nights (Oct 2020) - we were quite anxious, as he was being separated from our other Vizsla, who had an injury, and we were worried that he may not settle. However, he has clearly had a fantastic time! He has been incredibly well looked after and has had loads of exercise. Alyson and Ronnie are dedicated, friendly and professional and their dog friendly facilities, gorgeous large garden and proximity to walks/beach are perfect. Elek has been very well cared for and we are so pleased and grateful that he has had such a good time. We would highly recommend Droolers and will definitely book again without any hesitation.

This was Alfie's first time away from the family for any length of time, he seemed to really enjoy his two weeks at Droolers and we would fully recommend Alyson and Ronny as great hosts for pets.

Used Droolers a couple of times now, Alison and Ronnie, are friendly and welcoming to us and our Labradoodle Eva, they look after Eva whilst we enjoy a lovely break away, Eva is well cared for, just like one of their own, and she is always excited to see them. Eva, has the run of the house and gardens, and goes for daily walks. We have no problem recommending Droolers

Our chocolate lab had a fantastic time whilst we were on our holidays. Allison and her husband along with Murphy their own dog made bruno so welcome in a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

Left our 7 month border collie with Alison and Ronnie last weekend , of course as it was his first time we were very anxious but, having visited the home before we knew Rocky was going to be well looked after. Alison and Ronnie are very firendly and welcoming.He immediately started playing with their 2 dogs in the garden and we left him quite happily. Although they didnt admit it, we know Rocky would have been an energetic handful but they didnt complain and they certainly tired him out as he slept soundly all night after we collected him...a first. We'll definitely return.

I booked my mam's dog Sam with droolers so I could take her away for a well deserved break. My Mam was very anxious about leaving Sam as he is her beloved companion, but from the moment we visited we knew he would be so well cared for. He was very happy there and enjoyed his time. We will certainly use Droolers again I can't recommend them highly enough. Fantastic.

Our elderly border terrier 'buttons' has had a lovely Christmas week been extremely well looked after. Apartently played with toys something she never does at home! Murphy is gorgeous and it's been a fantastic safe environment to leave her in. Would have no hesitation in recommending Droolers and would book again if going away, thank you

Just returned from our holidays. We left our dog Tess with Alyson Ronnie and of course Murphy the gorgeous labradoodle. We had Tess booked into the cat and dog shelter previously, but after being introduced to Murphy and family, I was amazed at the hospitality and relaxed setting at Droolers. I new instantly this was the place for Tess. As we hadn't had Tess very long and she had only been off the leash a couple of times I was a bit apprehensive. But Alyson had Tess out on regular walks even had her to the beach. It was great seeing how well and happy Tess was on our return. Alyson and Ronnie have worked wonders on her. They even sent us photos of her while we were on holiday. We have already booked Tess in again for more holidays, as I know we never need to worry about her. She is treated the same as their own dog Murphy. Tess certainly made herself at home. We have even made arrangements to meet again at the beach with Alyson Ronnie and friends. Please do no hesitate in booking your dogs with Droolers as I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Alison and Ronnie took on my 3 Cockers for 10 days while I had a well deserved holiday. They had never been in kennels so needed a home from home environment for them. I think they totally took over their lives and came home happy and relaxed. Alison reassured me all was well, sending me a photo of the girls enjoying the sofa, yes all 3, so no room for anyone else. I was so grateful to for the care and attention Alison and Ronnie had given them. I would highly recommend Droolers and would definitely use them again.

5 From Avril Black on

Booked at short notice, with Ronnie and Alison both very friendly and considerate despite this. Our dog (Jasper) previously booked into conventional kennels, and although very good, Jasper tended to be highly excitable on our return. Droolers are literary a home from home with very a relaxed attitude to visiting 'boarder', (however, respect given to pets own home restrictions if any), with Jasper noticably more laidback on our return. Would highly recommend.
