Tommy has looked after Wally our one year old poochon a few times now and we are very happy with his services we get pictures and videos every day and wally always comes home happy and shattered from all the playing with the other dogs. Tommy has also given us good advice about wallys behaviour and it has really helped we will continue to use Tommy in the future and I have recommended him to friends also.

I am glad I found Thomas , Simba is a pampered boy but all my anxiety was put at ease when I picked him the first time from daycare! He was well fed clean and really tired after all the fun he had with his new friends. He loves going there and just walks in without even a glance back. Thomas kept us updated throughout the day with pics and videos of Simba which was great and kept us connected with him. Thank you Thomas look forward to a longand happy association with you.

I feel like our dog has had 5 star treatment over the past 2 weeks whilst staying at Tommy Dog Heaven and we will certainly be a customer again in the future. We have loved to see the treatment being provided to our dog whilst we have been away with photos and videos of daily walks being sent through. Our little dog is getting on in his years and I'm grateful that you managed this to suit his needs and that he didn't just become part of the process. Great also to see some photos of him relaxing around the facilities. Your love of dogs is clear and this comes through in how you run your business and is felt by us as owners and seemingly by my dog also who didn't seem to want to leave you. Thank you for the quality of service you provided and the peace of mind you gave us whilst we were away. We have promised our dog that we will use you again.
From Maria Jones on
Was a bit worried when we dropped the puppy off,but Tommy was friendly and reassuring
Loki has a great time there and we get updates via pictures and videos. He comes back exhausted as he is playing with all the other dogs,he loves it.Tommy also gives us advise when I have a query
From Gemma on
Very impressed with the care that was given for both of my dogs whilst I was away for 3 weeks. Thomas ensured he gave me daily updates - photos and videos which was great to see how they was getting on. I would highly recommend Thomas and would love to use his services again.
From Lianne on
Thomas is the best, if you're a bit nervous about leaving your dog/puppy with anyone then he is the man for you. I have a rescue chihuahua who had a very bad start in life, started going to Thomas for day care just to get him used to other dogs, Thomas offered to keep him for a few days to build his confidence, not that he had to but just because he wanted to help. Not only is he brilliant with the dogs he is always there if you need help or advice with anything dog related. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a dog-sitter or day care.
From christine wheeler on
My miniature goldendoodle is truly in heaven every time she attends doggy day care, so much so she doesn't want to leave! I have no hesitation in recommending Thomas. The standard of care if of the highest order with photos and videos of the walks that are being enjoyed. Outstanding levels of service, so if you are thinking of boarding your dog or just want day care then this is the best place around.
From Mark on
We sent our cockerpoo for a night here 26/10/2019 to see how he'd get on prior to a longer stay in December . He was very nervous but was looked after , walked and was made to feel very welcome. I had regular updates and the day we picked him up he was clean and obviously very excited to see us .
From Lee Roberts on
Boarders Response:Hi Lee, Thank you for your review. Ringo is first-time be using home boarding service. He was nervous when he first comes to my home. We have done our best to try to keep him relax with the dog group. I also to keep him in my bedroom at night next to my bed as your request. We feed him Turkey mince in the morning and Carrots and chicken in the evening (as we promised). Also the day you stay is heavy raining day. I have given him a rinse and blow dry him after the walk. I hope you will use our service again. Best wishes Thomas
My 10 month old cockerpoo has been going to Thomas's regularly since she was 3 months old. Thomas provides a safe and fun environment for all the dogs in his care. It has been great for my puppy to socialise and play in a safe and loving place. There is a large area with sofas especially for the dogs to play and sleep and a large garden to access. Thomas keeps you updated with lots of photos and videos so you can see what a great time your dog is having. Thomas clearly loves dogs and gives great advice about how to deal with things that I didn't know. Thomas is great at training dogs so she is now better off the lead and actually listens to commands. Highly recommended
From Rachael Sillars on
My dogs have had their first experience of Tommy and his doggy haven recently.
Tommy offers a free run of his pet areas which includes an amazing garden with lots of run and play areas as well as hide and seek areas. There are sofas and TVs for those moments when you just don't want to play.
Dinner time is well organised and fresh food it supplied, as well as snacks.
My dogs aren't very well trained, and dare i say a little over indulged by myself and Tommy has offered guidence for both me and my dogs to get on track.
From Sam Walsh on
Thomas is amazing! Pablo stayed with him for 2 weeks in the spring & he sends loads of photos & videos of the walks & the dogs having fun together so you never have to worry they're not happy. He is firm but very kJ d & loving with the dogs. Pablo didn't want to come home & missed Thomas & his doggy mates! I cannot recommend him highly enough. And it gets better because the dogs have their own sofas (2 huge sofas!) & a wide screen tv to watch, if they want to! He loves those dogs (& has his own) & they are all individually cared for, no shutting them away, they become part of his home! A REAL doggy holiday!
From Heather Darvill on
Thomas looked after our mini schnauzer Duggie recently.. he provides a structured,safe and loving environment and we can honestly say a 5 star rating is every bit deserved. Would thoroughly recommend.
From Ali on
Our little pup has been going to Tommy Heaven for a while now and Tommy has been a great help! Not only does our pup have someone to look after, walk and feed her throughout the day. She is also able to socialise with other dogs. She has been trained off the lead and is so well behaved when out for walks.
Tommy will provide updates throughout the day on how your dog is doing, with pictures and videos.
If you're looking for a doggy daycare. Look no further!
From Matthew on
Have recently started using Tommy's day care services for my puppy. The service provided for our puppy is amazing! He gets lovely walks everyday and also gets to socialise with other dogs in a lovely environment. Tommy gives my puppy amazing care though out the day and sends updates so we know what he has been up to. Tommy is helping to train our puppy give us tips to help the training continue at home. Will definitely continue to use the services provided and would highly recommended.
From Gill on
I was recommended Tommy's services by a friend and within minutes of meeting him I was completely put at ease. It's clear that Tommy has a real passion for dogs and treats mine like his own. The video walks are great and its clear my dog is being well looked after. Nothing is too much trouble and Tommy is really flexible with drop off and pick up times enabling me to get to work in good time. If you love your dog it's daunting to put them in the hands of a stranger but I'm so pleased my friend recommended Tommy to me
From Jason Pringle on
We left our two yorkshire terriors with Thomas for a week, and he is certainly 5 stars constantly keep us updated with photos and videos. If the dogs could talk I'm sure they would love to see him again.
From Gary Lapthorne on
Our young Labrador Margot went to stay with Thomas and Simon for a long weekend. We can not fault the care she had- I'm not sure Margot really wanted to come home!!
Thomas kept me updates regularly with photos and videos of their amazing walks and adventures.
I will not hesitate for Margot to stay at Doggy Heaven again- and I highly recommend them- a very friendly, professional service- Thanks Thomas
From Clare on
Tommys Doggy Heaven has been fantastic for our Labrador puppy Maya and us. A high level of care, professionalism, flexibility, attention to detail and a bespoke approach to suit our specific needs. Thomas has and continues to provide all the assurances we need that Mya is in very good hands. Regular daily updates which includes pictures and videos. We will definitely continue using Thomas and would highly recommend him.
From Andy & Rox on
My puppy has been coming to Tommy Doggy Heaven since he was three months old for a mixture of day care and boarding.
The care he has received has always been exceptional . Tommy cares for the dogs like they are his own and keeps you fully updated on a daily basis.
I would not hesitate to recommend this service.
From Rachel Shaw on
Thanks to Thomas and Simon,left our 12yr old cocker spaniel for a few days. My husband and I found the service fantastic from start to finish. They Kept us informed with pictures and videos daily. We would recommend their service and found the whole experience great. We would definitely use them again.
From Michelle Roncaglione on
We had a wonderful service from Tommy Dog Heaven. We nervously left our 14 week old Goldador Puppy for a week, but these fears quickly disappeared. Tommy provided regular Watsap photos, videos and updates, which allowed us to completely relax and enjoy our holiday. It was clear to see that our Puppy was having a great time and was taken on nice walks and enjoyed playing with the other dogs. Tommy is very knowledgeable and provides lots of useful advice. I would recommend Tommy Dog Heaven to anybody who is looking for a home boarder, we would also definitely use his service again. Thank you.
From Les Fullwood on
Thomas looked after my two dogs for a week and they both seemed very happy when I collected them. I got photos and videos everyday of all the walks they had been on which was great! He really understood both of their needs and catered for them well. Thomas is very friendly and will definitely use again without a doubt
From Julia Robson on
we just came back from vacation and
see our Cookie was the best moment for us. Thomas and his adorable dogs took care of our Cookie. He kept us up to date every day with photos and videos during their walks in beautiful places. I believe that Cookie will miss their company so much. Impossible to give him a higher rating but for us it is a ten stars.
Thanks Thomas for everything!
From Elisa on
Wonderful service with Tommy Dog Heaven.
Our dogs were looked after exceptionally (shown by many photographs and videos sent to our mobile phone whilst away). Our dogs were given lovely long walks and looked truly happy with Tommy. We were shown daily photographs and videos which showed that our dogs were safe and happy in Tommyâ€™s care. We are very grateful to Tommy for doing this â€“ this is great service.
This is the first time that we have left our dogs with a dog carer to go away. After meeting Tommy and walking our dogs with him we realized how much he cares about dogs and how much knowledge and connection that he has with them â€“ our dogs loved him.
From Steve and Nadine on
Amazing Service and we also love BoBo and Snowy. Zombie loves staying at Thomas. Thomas always ensured to keep us update daily. We felt safe with Thomas to look after Zombie. We will definitely use Thomas services again. Thanks Thomas. Zombie miss u guys xx
From Alice on
Lovely kind Home to leave your precious dog with.
Can fully recommend Tommy Doggy Heaven.
Whilst our dog was there, we received lots of lovely photos and videos of him which was so lovely to recieve.
Huge thanks !
From Vicki Dimmock on
Can't fault the care our dog Pepper enjoyed with Tommy. She got on well with the family dogs who welcomed her into their pack. She had all the comforts of home, long, varied walks and a little of Tommy's training to get her out of some bad habits! We were also given updates and photos through messaging every day we were away so we could see she was enjoying her stay. I have no hesitation in recommending Tommy to other dog owners.
From Erika Harvey on
The only word is Fantastic to describe the service that Thomas has given to us .He looked after Bella for a few days and was fantastic the pictures kept coming to keep us informed of how settled she was
From Gordon Leach on
Tommy offers 1st class boarding. I left my Jack Russell with him safe in the knowledge that he would be well cared for.
Tommy goes the extra mile when caring for dogs. They are walked every day and I was updated with pics throughout the stay.
The premises are great with a large garden. I would not hesitate in recommending Tommy.
From Gary on
I want to thank Tommy for looking after my Jack Russell.
First class facilities and first class care. He really does go the extra mile when caring for my dog & others. he walks them daily and always updated me pics.
I would definitely use Tommy again and would recommend his services.
From Gary on
What a wonderful experience for our puppy Frenchie to stay with Tommy for 10 days. And what a relaxing time for us to know that he was under his care while we were away. We received regular updates with pictures and videos of their walks, their play time at home and his interactions with the resident dogs, Snowy and Bobo. Tommy and his state of the art facility are the perfect solution while we are on a trip and we cannot take our frenchie with us. I strongly recommend Tommy Doggy Heaven as your dog carer.
From Leonardo on
Thomas is a lovely guy who really puts the dogs needs first and foremost. He has brilliant facilities for the dogs needs and access to exciting walks! His two dogs are also just as pleasant and welcoming. I will surely be using his services in future!
