About our Home Boarding

My name is Shayle Barlow and I am the owner of Beagle & Buddies. My husband Simon & I are both retired nurses having worked within the NHS for 40 years, we have 2 amazing sons. Our lives changed dramatically 4 years ago when we decided to get a dog..
a Beagle!!!
Max has truly been a challenge, we are now fully trained in the art of Canine parenting.
Our focus is to offer home from Home Boarding & Daycare, ensuring our doggie guests special needs are catered for. Your will dog stay with us as part of our family, will have lots of attention and most importantly lots of cuddles. I like to keep my numbers low to maintain a comfortable home environment.
My family love dogs and our wonderful friendly resident dog Max has many friends, and very well known in our area.
I am fully trained in Canine First Aid and have a particular interest in Therapy Dogs, we also belong to Beagles UK , North West Beagles and our local Cannine Park group.


We are located in Upton Chester and have instant access to parks,woodland & beaches.
Your dog will join us as a family guest, relaxing in the warmth and comfort of our home.
We have a safe and enclosed garden to play in.


Your dog will enjoy frequent walks across a nearby dog friendly Country Park, Woodland and many local beaches.
I only walk in small groups, 4 being the maximum. On or off the lead depending on the dog and owners preference.
Exercise/walks will be suited to your dogs size, age & ability.

We provide individual attention for your dogs and will always fit in with your dogs preferred routines and needs, any training programme your dog is on we will maintain.

We would definitely highly recommend this excellent service.It is a home for home for your dogs. We left our 2 dogs Harvey and Ghillie with Shayle and Simon ,but before this we were asked to complete an extensive questionnaire to ensure that they understood the needs of our dogs and intuitively Shayle understood the needs of us as owners too and sent pictures and texts of what are dogs were up to giving us reassurance.The service provided was very professional and we would definitely recommend this dog walking and boarding service, it is a five star service -thankyou very much Shayle and Simon.

Highly recommended!! We have never left Buddy with anyone but family, so when a family holiday was arranged I dreaded the thought of having to make plans for his care. Being a dog that loves company and cuddles I knew that kennels would not suit him, so when looking into home boarding I came across Beagle & Buddies, which was fairly local to me. I telephoned and spoke to Shayle, who was friendly, helpful and happy to chat in length about my requirements and learn about my dog and his habits. She told me about her own pet dog and asked important questions such as were my dog's vaccination program, flea and worm treatments up to date and told me what information she would require from me; it was reassuring to know that she was very professional about her responsibilities. Shayle suggested that we arrange a date to visit her at her home to talk more and to meet my dog. As soon as we arrived Buddy seemed happy in his surroundings and went out in the garden with Max, Shayle and Simon's Beagle. We chatted about Buddy's routines and I was given forms to complete and a contract/all the legal stuff to take away. During the ten days that Buddy spent with Shayle, Simon and Max, we were kept informed of how he was and sent photos of him out having fun; they even had a 3rd birthday celebration for Buddy. It was reassuring to know that he was happy and enjoying a holiday of his own! On our return we were told all about Buddy's stay and how the family had got to know his character well an

Shayle and Simon provide excellent care for dogs. My dog Snoop loves going to play with Max. There home is so welcoming and is a home from home experience for dogs. I feel very relaxed leaving Snoop with Beagles and Buddies as I know he is having a great time and in very safe hands. Thanks Shayle for the great service you give.
