Reviews from Our Guests
Have been using Dom and team for past 3years. We have always found them professional and experienced and very likeable. We wouldn't leave ozzi anywhere else.
From Laura and steve on
We moved to Bedfordshire about a year ago, and we have used shelton dogs several times now. I thought it was only right to leave a review, as this Homeboarding family run business is fantastic. Our dog actually gets so excited once we get near to shelton dogs. The closer we get the more excited he becomes. We highly recommend this the guys at Shelton dogs. Thank you so much. See you in March.
From Andrea & David on
Dom thank you to you and your team once again. Fantastic service and highly recommended. Don't bother going elsewhere, these guys are the best. A big thank you to carmen for washing my pooch, she smelt lovely.
From Kath and Dave on
We left our 2 dogs (miniature Schnauzer and Labrador) at Shelton Dogs for just over a week. It was the first time they had been left from ourselves. We were kept up-to-date during the holiday via pictures. They were very well looked after and I have no hesitation in using the service again when we go away on holiday.
From Simon on
Lovely location and lovely people.

Have been using Dominic at Sheltondogs now for the last 10months. Our dog billy always has a lovely time. We have used other places that offer the same services in the past! but have never been as happy as we are with these guys.
Thank you do much Sheltondogs.
From Hannah Richards on
I would highly recommend Sheltondogs. Dom the owner is very highly experienced with dogs, he really has a very good way with them, and my two love him to bits.Carmen and Marcus are both lovely as well, Marcus is really relaxed around the dogs and Carmen is so lovely. Wouldn't go anywhere else, for the money they charge, they are really reasonable.
Thank you Sheltondogs.

From Sam goswell on
Haven't been on holiday for 4years, we had a terrible experience where we left our Labrador before, and it really put us off leaving him anywhere.Last year two of my friends were going away for a girls weekend, and they both use sheltondogs, and have done for sometime. My friend suggested because Dave was at home on the weekend, if Douglas wasn't happy for any reason he could just go and collect him. Well when we dropped Doug to Dom's he wasn't reluctant at all, he happily just went with Dom. When Dave came to collect Douglas on the Monday, he was so relaxed and happy, Dom had text us a couple of times over the weekend and kept us updated.I am so pleased to have found sheltondogs.Cant recomened them highly enough.We have booked our next trip away together again, feeling really relaxed and happy knowing Douglas will be having a holiday as well.
From Belinda & Dave on

From Heather newton on
Dominic has been looking after my two little chihuahuas for a few years now and can't speak highly enough as to how he takes good care of them. I wouldn't have them go anywhere else. I reluctantly put them in kennels for a couple of weeks but one of them came back really unhappy. Dom looks after them well, its home from home as they are used to just lazing on the sofa all day the pooches also love their walks in the countryside which backs onto his property away from the main road. They are always very excited to see Dom and his teenage boys. We are always kept well informed as to their behaviour and get some lovely photos sent to us. I worry about the tiny one as he is a faddy eater. If my little pooch won't eat then he is coaxed by being hand fed or plays a little game with him. We have to do this sometimes as he can't afford to lose the weight. It's really good to be kept informed and Dominic really does give that personal touch. Already booked them in for next years holiday!
From Carol Black on
My dog daisy loves sheltondogs! My friend who I walk with on a Tuesday kept raving on about Dominic at sheltondogs! He is such a lovely man with a lovely face!He is so helpful and really knows what he is doing!Daisy gets so excited every time we arrive at Dons house.

Nala our dog has been visiting Dom since she was just a small puppy. She loves everything about going to stay and can't contain her excitement on arrival. It's great to receive photos during her stay to see what she's up to and the home environment is wonderful. We couldn't be happier.
