About Shirley

We have a house where your pet will be one of the family. Our home has a large enclosed garden and there are wonderful parkland close by for walks.

Our own pets have ranged from many cats to two mini-poodles. Our last fur-kid, our little chocolate poodle, Pippi died this year, aged 17.

We have been a regular dog sitter for a spoodle called Purpie. Each year she comes to us for the Christmas holidays while her owners go overseas. But now that we have no animals of our own, we would be open to looking after other pets as well.

Owning cats and dogs now for over 30 years, I have experienced many different personalities in animals and seem to have an affinity with most. We have only had animals that are inside animals and we

enjoy letting them share our home.

There are extensive parklands near to our house where a dog can enjoy either on-lead or off-lead exercise. We would walk your dog in these parklands. Any pet staying with us would be treated like family.

Shirley was a wonderful and understated host of my aged dogs Jimmy & Lily. I received regular updates and photos during their stay. Shirley was very considerate to ensure the dogs welfare was her first priority. The dogs were happy and relaxed upon pickup. I really couldn’t ask for better care. Thank you Shirley!

A BIG thank you to Shirley and her husband for taking such wonderful care of our elderly little Brussels Griffon who is 14 years old .

Wicket is almost fully deaf and blind however very lovable and enjoys his food :)

Shirley was absolutely amazing and had a wonderful connection with Wicket. She is so insightful and caring. The moment I met her I immediately knew he would be happy.

I highly recommend Shirley-She is a great communicator and a fantastic carer. I will definitely book Wicket in again

Thanks so much
