Who We Are

Ben

My wife & I (Caroline and Peter) have owned 2 dogs for over 25 years & have also been looking after friends' dogs for many years.

Peter took early retirement from IT Project Management.

Caroline is an ex-nurse and charity worker.

We have dog boarding insurance and are licensed so we can demonstrate cleanliness from food preparation through to safe handling of waste. Peter also has DPS clearance and UK Security Clearance from his 34 years in management.

We live in Penshaw close to great walks in Lambton Woods, Biddick Woods, Elba Park, James Steel Park, Herrington Park & Chester-le-Street Riverside.

We are reliable, responsible and punctual.

Why Us

We will walk your dog(s) and look after them as if they are ours, either at our home or yours whatever matches your requirements.

Our services include:

  1. Dog boarding in our home;
  2. Daily walks, watering and feeding during the working day from your home or ours;
  3. Dog sitting at your home or ours.

Your dog will be part of the family. Our granddaughters often visit us, and they love dogs. Your dog will have its own bedroom downstairs off the sitting room. It is warm, well ventilated with soft low wattage lighting.

You will never see us out walking with more than 2 dogs.

Skiathos Dog Shelter

Skiathos Dog Shelter

Skiathos Dog Shelter

Peter and Caroline go to the lovely Greek Island of Skiathos every year and we always visit the excellent Skiathos Dog Shelter.

The shelter is in the centre of the island near the Ekklisia Panagia Ikonistria monastery.

Visitors, mostly holiday makers & locals, can take dogs out for walks and make a donation to the shelter as it does great work taking in dogs that have been abandoned by owners. Sometimes the dogs have been left tied up near the shelter or left on the marina by owners from neighbouring islands or the mainland.

A lot of dogs get their new homes in countries such as Denmark, Germany and the UK subject to checks made regarding the prospective owners and their home.
