About Us


I offer a home boarding service for dogs. Your four legged friend will stay in my home with me, my dog Mist and my young son Conor and be treated like one of our family. So no cold kennels, but lots of exercise and affection!

I also offer a dog walking service with half hour or hour walks offered, so whether your dog would like a gentle stroll in the park or an hour long hike in the woods I can adapt the walks to suit your dog.

Call me, email me or check out my Facebook page for more details.
     
 
Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

We were looking for a home from home environment for our German Shorthaired Pointer Penny and somewhere where she would get the chance to go out for daily walks as she has a lot of energy to burn!

"Penny has been to stay at Becky’s a couple of times before but previously as an overnight guest and a day guest. She has just come back from a 10 day stay while we were away on holiday. Penny loves staying with Becky. She gets the company of Becky’s dog Mist, lots of play and cuddles and plenty of wonderful walks in Dalbeattie Forest and other places. Becky takes the time to check her doggy guests will get on with her dog and be happy in her house."

For my dog to be looked after in a home environment and get a decent walk off the lead. I have been friends with Becky for 4 years and know she would take excellent care of my dog.
 
Cost: £75

"I had complete peace off mind while away on holiday. I knew 'Odin' was in excellent hands and I also got regular updates on Facebook and could see how much he was enjoying himself. "

I wanted someone who was a genuine dog lover who would be able to care for my dogs in comfortable, warm surroundings and give them the attention they are used to.
 
Cost: £108

"Becky was provided my dogs with a friendly and comfortable home.
She is a good communicator and being able to meet her before the dogs went to board was very reassuring.
Her own dog was friendly to mine.
I would be happy to recommend Becky's boarding and waggy walks.
My dogs are already booked for their next stay."
