About Us

Between us we have over 20 years experience with dogs and are proud to offer the following local, reliable, friendly and professional service;

- Dog Walking; not in groups (unless they are all your dogs), an individual service to meet your dogs needs.

- Doggie Day Care; we keep them company, walk them and play with them while you are out (at our home). This can provide excellent socialization for your dog as they get to spend time with other dogs.

- Dog sitting in your home while you are out; can be done at two different intervals throughout the day if you wish.

- Home boarding with us; your dog is very much treated and loved like one of the family during their stay with us, and live in the house not outside in kennels. We stick to their usual routine (feeding, walking, sleeping arrangements etc).

- Puppy care; do you need help with basic training? All of the above services are also available for puppies and includes training such as toilet training. Perhaps you are at work all day or have very busy lives. We can help you.

- Pet taxi; we can take your dog to vet appointments if you are unable to, or we can transport you and your dog.

We offer an initial free visit to come and meet you and your dog(s) so we can discuss your requirements, or you are welcome to come to us. References available.

Heather and Ashley have been walking our dog Bailey for over a year and we couldn't be happier with the service Doggie Delights provides. Bailey gets so excited when we tell her they are coming to take her out! She is not an easy dog to walk but I have complete confidence in leaving her in the care of Doggie Delights. They are trustworthy, reliable, flexible and reasonably priced. We are so glad we found them! Thanks Heather and Ashley :)

Heather is "One in a Million "
Mrs Bates Reviewed on 3rd September, 2014

When I got Deisel my German shepherd in March 2013 I was anxious to find someone reliable, someone who would treat and love him like I do whilst looking after him when I was at work. Through a friend I was advised about Heather and the services Doggie Delights provided. Best thing that ever happened. I was put to ease the second I met Heather. Deisel has been going on a weekly basis since May 2013 from 12 weeks old, 18 months later he still gets so excited in the car when we turn into Bodmin Road as he knows where he is going. He loves socialising and going on the walks, sometimes I think he likes it better there than at home. We purchased another German Sheperd in Jan this year " Emmy " she also absolutely adores Heather. Heather really is One in a Million and Me Deisel and Emmy would not know what to do without her. She is there second Mum. Thank you Heather for everything. Liz xxxx

Highly recommended!
Mrs Sanchez-Hernandez Reviewed on 2nd September, 2014

Heather has been taking care of our labradoodle for day care and holidays since he was a puppy. You can tell he loves her to bits and loves being under her care...he gets all excited once we are by her door and can't wait to get in! Heather keeps us up to date with what Tigger is doing especially over holidays. He obviously cannot stop playing with lots of doggy friends! We find it is brilliant for his socializing skills and he could not be happier when he is apart from us. She truly cares about every pet she takes care of and she is amazing with all of them. I truly and highly recommend her services :)

Hurrah for Doggie Delights
Mr Miles Reviewed on 4th June, 2014

We have a rescue dog with high separation anxiety and who also just loves to play, who we did not want to put into kennels when we go on holiday.

We heard about Heather and Doggie Delights and went to meet her earlier in the year with our dog. After lots of friendly questions from us and her - and with our dog Dante having a great time in the interim playing with the other dogs - we agreed that we would bring him over for a daytime play date followed by an over-nighter before we go on holiday.

Well we had the day play date yesterday - basically Dante could not wait to get stuck in and obviously remembered Heather and her animals. When we came to pick him up after greeting us he still wanted to play and was obviously completely at home.

Dante had a great time and after a short fuss back at home slept most of the evening! We feel much happier now about going on holiday knowing that Dante will be well looked after. Thank you Heather.

Highly recommended - Doggie Home from Home
Mrs marszall Reviewed on 8th May, 2014

My dog 'Doug the Pug' has stayed several times with Heather from 'Doggie Delights'. Usually a very clingy dog, he happily goes off with Heather. He always returns happy and relaxed and I have no worries that he's had a great time. During his stay, I get regular updates by text. This gives me great peace of mind and leaves me free to enjoy my holiday or concentrate on other things.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Heather and Doggie Delights

Brilliant day care!
Mrs Brodrick Reviewed on 20th February, 2014

My dog has been going to Heather for day care twice a week since she was a small puppy. She absoloutely loves spending her days there with Heather and the other dogs and runs down the path to the front door eagerly each time I drop her off! She's made some lovely doggie friends and sleeps all evening when she's back home as she's had so much fun in the day. Heather also sends pictures and text updates on the mischief our little one has been up to which is lovely :) We've also left her with Heather when we've been on holiday and she's had a great time and been looked after perfectly. Heather is brilliant and I wouldn't take my dog to anyone else - highly recommended!!

Heather is a godsend!
Miss Rolls Reviewed on 28th January, 2014

Our dog Milo has spent both weekends and afternoons with Heather, and seems to love every minute. Heather was the answer to my prayers when we first got our puppy- finding someone who we could rely on to look after him as well as we did was such a relief. She happily updates us during his time with her with text messages, photos and videos and totally understands how important it is for us to be reassured. I am so glad that I started using Heather while Milo was a puppy as now I have no qualms at all about leaving him with her. He is already booked in for a short break and a holiday in the summer and it is so much better for him to be in a family home than a kennel. I would thoroughly recommend Heather- she clearly loves her job and the dogs love being with her. Annoyingly my dog cries when he leaves!!!

Total peace of mind
Mrs West Reviewed on 22nd January, 2014

I have a very highly strung beagle who I never thought I'd be able to leave with anyone else in case she was too much hard work.....and then I came across doggie delights and I haven't looked back since :-).I was slightly apprehensive the first time I left Ruby there but i got regular text updates and pictures to reassure me she was fine and behaving herself which really put me at ease.Ruby has been many times since and loves it!....she is already booked in for 3 different visits this year. Total peace of mind for dog owners and a great little holiday for your dog.....added bonus for owners is them coming home and sleeping for hours after spending the day on dog walks and playing with their new found doggie friend. Great for socialization!. Very happy dog and customer :-)

Delightful Day Care
Mr Barringer Reviewed on 17th June, 2013

What more can I say...the other reviews say it all! Here is my version!

Heather has a wonderful way with animals and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to look after your dog.

I wanted someone to look after Sully for a week when I went on holiday and didn't want him to go into kennels. I contacted Heather and arranged go and visit her. Sully was fascinated by the other animals at home and, having spoken to Heather in depth, I was more than happy for him to stay here.

We went on holiday and got regular updates from Heather. Sully became transfixed by the cats Heather was fully aware and reverted the care to dog sitting at our home making sure he was visited and walked every day spending time with him keeping him company.

We returned to a happy, contented dog and a full history of his care over the week.

Very professional, very friendly, very much the carer you need for your dog!

Excellent care
Mrs Graham Reviewed on 7th February, 2013

My dog Izzie loves going to Heather's each week for the day. She is always well-cared for. Heather looked after her when we went away at Christmas and sent us daily texts to let us know how she was getting on. She is a very caring person and offers a very good service.

What a great place for a pup to spend a week!
Miss Critchell Reviewed on 30th January, 2013

After weeks of agonising about where our 9 month old puppy should stay when we went away for a week we came across Doggie Delights and contacted Heather to arrange a visit. All I can say is that I am just so pleased that we found such a loving, caring and safe environment to leave our dog for a week.

We honestly couldn’t have found anyone better to look after Scrumpy than Heather. It is so clear that she genuinely loves dogs, looked after him as if he was her own and did all she could to make him feel at home whilst we were away. Scrumpy simply loved his holiday and he was in absolutely no hurry to leave!!! In fact I am pretty sure he had a better time that we did as he had other dogs to play with, went on loads of lovely walks (come rain or shine – or snow in this instance!) and got lots and lots of cuddles and fuss! Heather even sent us pictures of some of his adventures which was such a lovely thought and so nice to see! I would unreservedly recommend Heather and Doggie Delights to anyone. It was such a comfort that we could go away knowing that Scrumpy was in the best possible hands!!

Peace of mind
Miss Mackenzie Reviewed on 27th January, 2013

Personal, professional service. Our two boys are always made a fuss of and very well looked after. Everything they need is provided - good walks, toys and socialisation with other dogs. We have used doggie delights for most things now - boarding, sitting and grooming and will not be going anywhere else!

Absolutely delighted
Mrs Majoe Reviewed on 31st December, 2012

We had to go abroad for a family emergency on short notice and Heather took care of Rhea and Bubbles, our 2 Golden Retrievers, in her own home. I always worry when leaving our dogs, but she managed to make us feel really at ease. On our 3 days away, we received news of our dogs everyday and it was fun to hear what they are doing.
Heather is a delightful person, always smiling and by the way she interacts with our dogs, you can tell she loves animals.
The second time we went to see her, she opened the door and our dogs rushed in, so they like her a lot too.
We can warmly recommend her to anybody.
Anne and Dennis, Eastleigh

Brilliant and trustworthy Pet Carer
Mrs Sneddon Reviewed on 31st October, 2012

Just wanted to say that Poppy loves going with Heather. She has stayed over night with Heather, been taken on walks and been fully washed and groomed.
I have been really impressed with Heather and I can go away knowing that all my animals are receiving the best possible care.
Plus really good value for money. I would never put my dog in kennels having seen the effect on some dogs and this is definately the best possible option for my dog.
I am always recommending Heather to others.

Would Highly Reccommend
Mrs Bond Reviewed on 29th October, 2012

I have had the pleasure of Heather at Doggie Delights looking after my dog for about 2 1/2 yrs now and my dog absolutely loves going for walks with her and when she comes in and watches him for the day they cuddle up on the sofa etc. Now we have combined 2 families, we now have 3 black labradors, and they are regularly looked after by Heather. Sometimes just a walk and other times for the whole day. However, we went away for 10 nights during the summer and she came to stay at our home in the New Forest and they had a brilliant time, lots of walks, hugs and play time and of course curling up on sofa in the eve watching tv together. If you haven't already tried them, I would highly reccommend them.

a bed for an old dog
Mrs bray Reviewed on 7th October, 2012

we were thrilled and relieved to find Doggie Delights our old retired Greyhound couldn't handle a kennel environment becoming ill when she was left in one. Doggie Delights made her part of the family - she never wants to leave!

Delighted with Doggie Delights
Ms McGowan Reviewed on 29th August, 2012

If you want someone who genuinely cares about the welfare of your dog then Doggie Delights is the place to go. I have been using Doggie Delights for almost a year now and can honestly say the service is second to none.
My dog is collected every weekday lunch time, walked, looked after all afternoon and comes home to me when I finish work. My dog has continual health problems which Doggie Delights have helped with and offered advice on. Never once have they complained about looking after him when he is ill, even when my dog has been sick on their premises. If tablets need to be given at certain times, or meals need to be given 4 times a day, Doggie Delights have done it and not charged me the earth to do so!
Heather cares for him like he is her own dog and she really is his second mummy! If I have to go away for a week or two I know I can leave him in safe hands, which gives me such peace of mind. I even get email and text updates so I know how he is doing.
On top of the care they give my dog, they also respect my wishes. I like things done my way with my dog and Doggie Delights do that! When he comes back from a walk covered in mud he is always properly cleaned up. Care is taken to use the same commands that I use at home and time is always made to give him attention. The fact that Doggie Delights want to please me as a customer as well as my dog is what pushes them heads and shoulders above the rest.
I really can’t fault Doggie Delights. The service is worth far more than the price charged and I am just grateful I found them.

Barney's home from home
Mrs Sundborg Reviewed on 29th August, 2012

The title says it all really, our cocker spaniel Barney adores Heather and is always happy to go and stay at his 'home from home'.

We have used Doggie Delights many times now for both daycare and also extended holidays. Both I consider to be of good value and worth every penny for the piece of mind knowing that Barney is in safe hands.

I don't hesitate to recommend Doggie Delights to anyone reading this review.
