What others say about us

Please see below for testimonials from customers who have let their dogs have their holiday with us.



We got to know Cindy and Martin via our niece Kelly, who had always looked after our pet dog Alfie whilst we were away. Kelly, decided she was going to work abroad and therefore we needed a dog minder for Alfie who is a Miniature Shnauzer.

We contacted Cindy, who was really accommodating and asked to meet Alfie. The first meeting went better than we expected and he stayed with Cindy for a few hours. We have to tell you that we were both really nervous (more bothered that I'm sure Alfie was!!!!). Anyway the meeting was a fantastic success.

We have since had Alfie looked after by Cindy and Martin for the whole day and we can only say that Alfie thoroughly enjoyed himself, he had been fed, walked and entertained in the garden. Alfie is off for his next visit (first overnight stay anywhere in seven years!!) very soon.

Alfie is very special to us and we wouldn't trust just anybody to look after him. We would highly recommend Cindy and Martin, they are great hosts and truly enjoy what they do - so give them a try, we are sure you will not be disappointed.

There are not many people I would trust to look after my dog but Cindy is definitely one of them. She has looked after Jake a number of times - he loves being at her house as much as she loves looking after him! Having someone who genuinely loves dogs look after mine puts my mind at rest every time




When we booked a short family holiday to Lapland there was one thing I was worried about, who will look after our little Bella? She was only 18 months old and had never been away from us before. The thought of leaving her in a boarding kennel in the midst of December was not one I could imagine, so I knew I needed to find a home from home. Well that is exactly what Bella got from Cindy at The Dogs Holiday.

I received photos and updates of how Bella was getting on and I could see she was totally relaxed and being pampered. I would highly recommend Cindy, she is absolutely fantastic and treats your dog as if it was hers, in the comfort of her own home. I wouldn't want Bella to go anywhere else and I am sure Bella wouldn't want to either! Wonderful service that definitely gives your dog a holiday whilst you enjoy yours.



Pip and Missy


We use Cindy a couple of time a year when we go on holiday to look after Pip and Missy. She sends through photographs and keeps me updated all the time about how they are going on which really puts my mind at rest and helps me to relax when I am away.

The only downside to it is that they sulk for a couple of days when I get back, which is proof that they have had a good holiday of their own! Overall I would definitely recommend Cindy to anybody.
