our dog boarding and daycare service
Gill and Dave looked after my "very timid" golden cocker spaniel Barney for a weekend. Barney had a great time, so much so that he didn't want to come home when we picked him up. I will not leave Barney in kennels because he is too nervous but I will not hesitate to leave him with Gill & Dave again. I was so relaxed while I was away knowing Barney was having a fab time and being cared for so well. I am now planning my next weekend away and Barney can go and stay with Gill and Dave and play with his new friends Charlie and Maddy.
Our beloved dog Baileys is a 12 year old Jack Russell who has diabetes so has a very strict regime regarding when he is fed and given his insulin injections. Dave and Gill have looked after him on a number of occasions now without any problems and we trust that he is always happy and well cared for. It is a big relief to us when we have to leave him to know he is in such good hands.
It was a big step to go on holiday without our boys, Badger and Amos , but I left the dogs and I couldn't have been happier. I was kept informed of their activities and felt totally happy that they were having a great time. Gill and Dave knew the boys personalities almost as well as we do by the end of their stay. The boys were pleased to see me but also quite content and chilled when I collected them. They had eaten well and were in no rush to leave. I am totally delighted with Dog For A Day many thanks once again Dave, Gill, Charlie and Maddy.
Another wonderful holiday for the boys with Charlie, Maddy, Gill and Dave. It was lovely to see how pleased they were to see Gill when I dropped them off. Have a feeling they have been spoilt with love and cuddles which is fantastic.
Our Buster is now pretty much a regular with Gill, Dave, Maddy & Charlie. We have consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found Dog For a Day. I don't worry for a second when I know Buster is there and to top it off when we got our new girl Sadie, all the D4aD family welcomed her with open arms. I get regular emails and updates from Gill and Dave which I think is a lovely personal touch. Maddy & Charlie also have bags of personality and I have come to consider them all as friends.
Thank you for looking after our pups so well. Both dogs always come back shattered which I consider a great sign! Recommend this fab family to anyone.
Thank you so much for looking after Wiggins and Nibali. Dave and Gill you really do go the extra mile for the comfort and well being of our fur babies. When they came home all waggy tailed, I even think Nibali would have gone back with you when you brought them home to us! I will not hesitate to book you again to look after my boys.
They are lovely people and always so accommodating!! Lovely lovely people, I never worry about leaving Patchy with them! X
Wilson the Beagle has landed well and truly on his paws, he has lots of new pals and loves his new sofa!! Dave & Gill are a real find, just moved to Sleaford and was so worried about finding a new dog walker.....not worried now, only concerned that Wilson won't want to come home. Thank you so much D&G x
Storm our Springer Spaniel stayed with Dave and Gill for two weeks while we were away on holiday. We had no concerns , she had a real home from home holiday herself. We had plenty of updates and pictures to reassure us that all was well. I cannot recommend them more as the perfect place to leave your special pet , lots of love and attention. Storm loves Gill, Dave , Maddy and Charlie and they mixed her with some lovely dogs for fun and games. We could not have asked more.
What a godsend these people are! Gill home visits my boy Charlie, a very lively Cavachon puppy, every day for breaks from his crate. He was 10 weeks old when I first left him and now he is a very contented 4 month old and I don’t worry about leaving him as I know Gill will be paying him a visit. I would recommend them highly to anyone who has dogs.
Dave and Gill provide the most incredible home-from-home you can imagine. From our first meeting it was clear that our dog's care was their main concern. Dave and Gill have been professional, flexible to my ever-changing diary and, best of all, clearly love and understand dogs. Potter really does drag me from my car to their front door (bad behaviour I know) when we arrive and can't wait to see his second family on his sleepovers...so much so that we are hoping to make his visits a regular event even when we DON'T need help. He comes home stimulated from the buddies he's met, well exercised and with his every need catered for. Gill keeps a friendly, fair control of his enthusiastic, adolescent behaviour (where possible) and keeps us updated with progress so we are confident our four-legged friend is in the best possible place whilst we can't be together. I can't recommend Dog For a Day highly enough and I've just realised they look after your cats in your own home too...
Gilly and Dave looked after Maisie and Darcie so well and they had a lovely time with them, I was kept updated lots and sent photos to see what they had been up to. Gilly and Dave obviously love dogs so much and I would not hesitate to recommend and take my girls there again. Thank you so much Gilly and Dave. Xxx Big lick from Maisie and Darcie. Xxx
