Meet the Team



Our Parson Jack Russell Terrier

Saffi was our last family pet and our inspiration behind us becoming involved in dog minding. A typical terrier who was the perfect companion. She was cute, smart, loyal and mischievous in equal measure and always ready for a walk.

Saffi had the ability to cheer anyone up and no amount of bad weather would deter her from going out. The brilliant temperament can never be replaced but home dog boarding has proved to be an ideal way of having a friendly dog around for some of the time and the exercise is always welcome.


Customer Service

As well as having a busy home life, Lynsey keeps up the family tradition, owning a Jack Russell Terrier called Rosie and loving dogs of all types.

After college and before she was married, Lynsey had a successful career in customer service and sales roles. Amongst the many things that helped her succeed were a positive, enthusiastic attitude and great customer service.

She has always been customer focused and never leaves clients waiting or wondering. Guaranteeing prompt replies and clear answers, customers know they can rely on Lynsey at all times.




Administration & Organisation

I’ve always loved dogs, starting with the first Jack Russell Terrier on my dad’s rural farm. No doubt my early background in farming further developed an interest in all animals but dogs are number one. As everyone knows you only need to have one dog and then you’re hooked.

Looking back on a varied working life, I could say dogs taught me a lot about relationships. Treat everyone as you’d like to be approached yourself and you won’t go far wrong. Treat dogs in the same way and you have a friend for life!
