Monday 10 Aug 2009 12:21:36 BST Molly, my 7 year old dog, has just had one weeks fantastic 'holiday' at Lynnes.
Molly had never been left before and although nervous at the thought of leaving her, once I met Lynne my mind was put at ease.
Lynne is a true dog lover who treats all the dogs as if they are her own, giving them lots of love and attention.
Thanks Lynne, I could not have found a better 'holiday home' for Molly.
25 shirley walker - Billy's Mum
Tuesday 4 Aug 2009 20:49:06 BST Billy is our 5 year old lhaso apso, from day one we have boarded him in kennels [good ones I might add} but he used to be a bit withdrawn when we got him back, and we felt more guilty every time we left him. Then we found Lynn. initially she just had him the odd weekend, but he loves it so much there we now leave him with her while we go on holiday. He gets on wth all 4 of her own dogs, especially George they look almost identical and Lynn refers to them as the twins. It certainly is a home from home in every sense of the word, and he is not just looked after he is loved. I reccomend Lynn to anyone and everyone, she is a lovely person and very professional in the running of her business, which ought to be called 'Home from Home'
24 Tracy Teddys mum
Saturday 1 Aug 2009 13:18:48 BST Lynne looked after our Teddy for the first time. weve never left him with anyone before. We thought we would never go abroad again as Teddy is blind and needs lots of attention. Lynne is dedicated to all the animals she cares for and nothing is too much. She put our minds at rest and gave our pet a home from home. Were so glad we found Lynne and her family as we can't thank them enough for the 5* care Teddy received. Infact when Teddy came home, he missed his new friends. Lynne is a very special lady and we wouldnt hesitate to recommend her. We will definatly be asking Lynne to take care of Teddy again. Thankyou again for all your help and time Teddy loves you!!!!

Monday 13 Jul 2009 15:45:47 BST Lynne was happy to have our poodle, Lulu, as she used to have one herself, Jasper. She therefore knows what a handful an 11-month old poodle can be but we had no need to worry. Lulu was very happy and superbly well cared for. We are very grateful to Lynne and her family, that we have found someone who Lulu will be safe and happy with when we can't take her on holiday with us. We wish Lynne every success in her doggy day-care and boarding business and have no hesitation in recommending her.

Monday 13 Jul 2009 15:25:39 BST I can't praise this lady enough, she is an absolute star. We met with Lynne, George, Baxter, Jake & Josh twice prior to leaving my two babies...Krumble & Krackle for a weekend. Nothing is too much trouble for Lynne, she is willing to do everything to make them feel at home. This was the first time we had left them & I was very nervous but I needn't have been as they were absolutely fine. Lynne told me to phone or text as much as I wanted, (which I did several times a day) & not once did she make me feel like I was pestering her.
We will definitely be using lynne again...Kev is very pleased as he was starting to think we'd never go away again!!!!
We nearly had to pay for an extra night.....once Lynne & I get talking there's no stopping us lol!!!!
On meeting Lynne you can tell just how much she loves dogs, which put me at ease straight away, she is a very special person & we are so glad we've found her.
Love Kim & Kev
Krumble & Krackle send you lots of licks xxxxxxxx

Saturday 13 Jun 2009 14:17:04 BST A REAL HOME FROM HOME....
Thank you so much for making Deba and Buster feel part of your family for a week whilst I was on holiday in Spain. I know Buster is everybody's friend but Deba is 12 years old and has never been away from home before. I need not have worried as Lynne and Shaun made her so welcome and spoilt her that I'm sure she would have been more than happy to have stayed another week.
I would not hesitate in recommending Lynne to my friends as I know that even the most "pampered pooch" will not realise they are away from home.
Once again thank you for making my dogs feel special.. Home boarding & Doggy daycare truly is a home from home service which I will be using many times in the future.

Friday 5 Jun 2009 20:26:54 BST Our Jak is nearly 11 he has been in kennels at least twice every year since being a puppy,however recently he started getting stressed out in the kennels.We saw Lynne's advert on the RSPCA website and deciced to give her a call,we took Jak to meet Lynne and her family they all got on well together.We have just collected Jak from Lynne's after a two night's stay with her, Lynne has solved all our problem's and concern over Jak's welfare he was treated like one of the family.Lynne really is a dog lover and care's for each dog like it belong's to her nothing is to much trouble.Jak actually slept at the bottem of Lynne's bed the last night he was there! he is now booked in for 2 weeks later this year.This is the only place he will go in the future, thank you Lynne
Wednesday 3 Jun 2009 13:07:43 BST Sammy my 6 month old Cavachon puppy went to stay with Lynne last month, The first time he had been left. On picking him up he was extremely happy and I will have no worries leaving him again.
He is looking forward to his next stay and I am very happy to have found such a lovely caring home for him to stay in.

Sunday 24 May 2009 12:32:29 BST Dave our cocker spaniel stayed with Lynne for 10 days last year, and leaving him in lynnes dog friendly, happy household while we were away meant we didn't have to worry about him. Lynne is genuinely concerned in the welfare of the animals she cares for and obviously enjoys being with them. Dave has just been back for an overnight stay, he was happy and excited to get there and wants to know when he can go again
Wednesday 6 May 2009 16:13:47 BST This is the 1st time i have left my 3 year old Cavalier King Charles with anyone other than family and I certainly couldn't have left him with anyone better than Lynne.
From the moment I stepped through the door on his initial visit, i knew it was the right place and my mind was at ease. Lynne is a wonderful animal lover and she made Jasper feel one of the family - he even slept upstairs!!
I can't recommend Lynne highly enough - thankyou so much to you and Shaun. I have already re-booked and wil certainly pass on your details. xx
16 liz Ronnies mum
Thursday 16 Apr 2009 20:35:48 BST Lynne has looked after Ronnie many times, he has been treated so well and has always enjoyed his holiday! The peace of mind that little doggy day care provides is the best and we would thoroughly recommend lynne as she is a genuine loving carer of dogs, Ronnie loves going to see Lynne, in fact so much that we wonder whether he wants to come home.
Tuesday 31 Mar 2009 09:45:07 BST I left my cocker spaniel Hamish with Lynne for the first time last weekend- I think I was more nervous than Hamish but Lynne reassured me and put me at my ease so i didn't feel too worried about leaving my little boy with her. On my return it was clear that Hamish had really enjoyed himself and that Lynne and Shaun had made him feel one of the family - even letting him sleep upstairs with their dogs. I really can't recommend Lynne highly enough.
Tuesday 31 Mar 2009 08:34:26 BST My two dogs Buster and Nell have stayed with Lynne on several occassions. Nell had always been a nervous dog and on her first visit we were worried how she would react to being away from home. Lynne took the time to make sure that Nell had plenty of reassurance and cuddles. Now she is quite happy to stay at Lynnes I highly recommend Lynne....
Monday 30 Mar 2009 17:01:56 BST Our little Jack has been to Lynne's home three times now and each time he comes home looking happy and healthy. The care he gets is just like he would at home and I would heartily recommend this wonderful doggy care service, it takes a weight off your mind to leave your best friend in such a great environment.

Saturday 14 Mar 2009 16:17:15 GMT Sammy is 15 1/2 yearsyears old, although he has been used to Kennels throughout his life he enjoy's being at Lynne's as it is in a home environment. We are much happier that he is cared for by Lynne as she treats all the dogs as though they are her own.
Wednesday 18 Feb 2009 19:38:42 GMT Finding Lynne solved all our worries of caring for our puppy Bruno. He first stayed with Lynne when he was four months old. Lynne is very experienced and devoted to her animals and eveyone elses! Bruno loves staying and is fantastically cared for.

Saturday 17 Jan 2009 19:16:11 GMT Our beautiful cocker spaniel puppy Max stayed with lynne and shaun over the christmas holidays. We were very worried about going away on holiday and leaving our 6 month old pup but after meeting Lynne our worries were over! They are a fantastic couple who love their animals and max enjoyed his stay with them, in fact he didnt even seem that excited when we picked him up!!! because he wanted to stay! I would recommend to anyone.. we now use lynne for day care when we are struggling for cover whilst we work. Highly highly recommended

Tuesday 13 Jan 2009 15:49:08 GMT It is so nice to find someone who is a genuine animal lover. Freddie our 5 month old king charles loved staying with lynne and her dogs.
Lynne is such a lovely person and treats our dog like her own. We never once worried about Freddie when we were away as we completely trust her and knew he was in the very best hands.
Would recommend Lynne to anyone.
Thanks Lynne x
8 alison and mac
Saturday 10 Jan 2009 13:22:05 GMT Mac really enjoyed his stay at Lynne's. It's wonderful to find someone who looks after dogs so well and lets them live in her home with her own dogs.
Mac has already started to leave the holiday brochures around the house so I can book another holiday so he can have his own holiday at Lynnes...

Thursday 8 Jan 2009 09:14:31 GMT Lynne has been looking after Holly for us since she was five months old on a regular basis. Lynne is very reliable, and extremely trustworthy. She has taken Holly many times at very short notice, nothing is too much trouble for her.
Most importantly Lynne has a genuine interest and love for all animals.
Holly is now grown up and being with Lynne's dogs and her boarders has helped to make Holly a very social and friendly dog.
Thanks Lynne xx
Tuesday 9 Sep 2008 09:37:11 BST Wesley has stayed with lynne on several occasions. Judging by his unwillingness to leave when we go to pick him up we can say that he regarded her house not only as a "home from home" but "better than home!"
Lynne has a genuine interest in the health and welfare of dogs and Wesley has certainly benefitted from advice given by Lynne on how his diet could be improved.
We are more than happy for Wesley to stay with Lynne...
Sunday 7 Sep 2008 23:21:09 BST Roxy and Bruno stayed for 4 days with Lynne and I was very, very pleased with the attention they received. Lynne is clearly a dog lover, who cares a great deal about the pets she looks after. I came back from holiday late at night so Lynne delivered the dogs back home for me... and they'd even been bathed! I'd certainly let Roxy and Bruno stay with Lynne again, knowing that I can go on holiday and not worry about them or feel guilty about leaving them in kennels. Staying with Lynne is a far better alternative to kennels because I know the dogs will get lots of love and attention in a home environment.
Saturday 6 Sep 2008 18:45:14 BST Lynne REALLY loves dogs! She has created a lovely environment for her four-legged friends!
Saturday 6 Sep 2008 11:00:57 BST I am Sadies owner and she goes regularly to Lynnes as i work away and is treated exceptionally well as if she lived there.I am very happy and content and never worry about her as she has a great time and loves it there as she gets spoilt. Definately recommend *****

Wednesday 3 Sep 2008 14:42:45 BST Belle and Beau the miniature schnauzers enjoyed their visit, being cared for by a kind dog lover. Recommended for social dogs of any age
Thursday 14 Aug 2008 15:53:16 BST my two dogs Polly and Max really love staying at "Auntie Lynne's"... In fact Max cried going home in the car after his last visit because he wanted to stay.
