Thank you so much Nikki for having Meg last week...she thoroughly enjoyed herself :) especially spending time with her fab friend Bella...was lovely to get cuddles from Bella too (as usual - the soft Staffie!) when I came to pick Meg up :)

Would like to say a BIG thank you to Nikki for taking our son's dog, Rocco at very short notice after he was badly let down by another establishment on day one of his holiday. Rocco, a 9 month old Miniature Pinscher, seemed immediately at home. We felt it was a huge responsibility, but Nikki continually reassured us with regular texts & photos which we were able to forward to our son in Greece. On collecting him this evening, whilst he made a fuss of us, it was obvious he had been very happy during his stay. Nikki's really is a "Home from Home" Thank you so much.

Daisy my dalmatian has just returned from a stay with Nikki and the other dogs. It was really great for Daisy as she loves being in a home environment and doesn't settle at run off the mill boarding kennels. Nikki is great with all the dogs and Daisy has benefitted from socialising and the great walks Nikki takes them on...Many thanks from Cath and Daisy xx

My dog Timmy absolutely loved staying with Nikki during the day when I was at work. His behaviour improved and I was relaxed knowing Timmy was cared for. We don't live local any more but I will be still sending Timmy to stay at Nikki's when we go on holiday because he has so much fun there! I can't thank Nikki enough. X

We left our german shepard dog fritz with nikki. We tried him a few times with her befor we went on our main holiday and he seemed to return to us with the face on cause we had brought him back... Nikki kept us updated with texts and photos of him while fritz was with her and that made the whole holiday better cause we weren't worried on how he was. Fritz will be returning to nikki when we have another holiday. Nikki u do a brilliant job and will come highly recommend from us

We have just returned from 2 weeks away leaving Charlie our 6 month old cockerpoo for the first time. We came back to a really well behaved dog he has definatley had a good time and made friends with the other dogs. Nicki is amazing and Charlie will be back again in October.

We have just returned from our first time away from Rufus our 9 month old boy and wanted to say a massive thanks to Nikki for taking great care of him. He has had a great time and made loads of friends - the photo updates were very reassuring. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will definitely be back. Craig and Sam x

Murphy came home very happy and relaxed after his first stay with Nikki - he had previously suffered separation issues whilst we have been away on holidays. I wont hesitate to recommend Nikki and I know Murphy will love to stay again in future.

Welcome to Nikki's Home from Home for Dogs

We have just been awarded 5 stars, low risk, by the local council, under the Animal Activity Star Rating System
Hi I am an ex-registered nurse who has always preferred dogs to people. I have a great understanding of dogs having had them for most of my 50+ years. I currently have a soft daft Staffi called Bella, and a Beagle Harrier called Raif, who are both very sociable and welcome dogs into their home with open paws. Whilst your dogs are with us, they are looked after as though they are my own. My only rule is that they are not allowed upstairs to give my dogs a bit of space.
I guarantee that they will be loved, spoilt, played with, however I do set rules, boundaries and limitations, which makes for a happy home.
We require you to sign a contract, which states that your dog has had their flea and worming treatment and that their vaccinations are up to date. We require to see their vaccination certificate
CRB Checked, Fully Insured, Fully Licenced by RMBC, Canine First Aid Certificate
I care for the dogs in my own home, which has a secure garden and a padlocked gate ( I know it is secure as our Raif is a bit of a Houdini, and has shown us every escape route possible, which are no longer available to him, or any other dogs in our care)
We have wonderful woods nearby, which make for a great playground for the dogs
All the dogs in my care are exercised to your requirements, although generally we find that taking them out to the local woods as a pack works well. We are usually out for 90 minutes, however if your dog is too young/old for this we will take them out seperately
Please note that we only take un-neutered males up to the age of 1 year old, and don't take females in season, even if they have been pre-booked with us
We also provide doggy day care, however we require all day care to be here before 8am, as this is when we go out for our walk. This is to ensure that the noise levels are kept down for our neighbours
Please take a moment to view our slide show, and see all the dogs in our care, having a good time
We do not have any children in residence, the children you see in the photo's are my god-children
We take/enable collection of your dog from 06-00 hours to 21-o0 hours. We would ask guests to be considerate of our neighbours and take care to not obscure their drive in any way, especially the driveway of Number 84
All dogs taken, however I do require to meet them first to assess their temperament, and assess how they will get along with my dogs, a soft daft Staffi called Bella, who is missing her big sister, and her new brother Raif, a young Beagle/Harrier
Open all year round,
