Testimonials – what our customers think of our

home from home dog boarding

“Our four and a half year old girl, Billie, has been on a Holiday For Dogs, with her “Auntie” Shirley four times now, for up to 17 days at a time. Shirley makes the biggest fuss of Billie, and obviously loves having her to stay. For Billie’s part, she gets very waggy and “chatty” with us, her humans, when we tell her she’s going to see her Auntie Shirley, so Billie obviously loves Shirley equally. When we pick Billie up, although she’s obviously extremely happy to see her own humans again and come home, her condition makes it very evident to us that Billie has spent a very happy, comfortable, healthy and cared for holiday. Billie and her humans (Dianne and Tom) recommend to you very highly, Holidays For Dogs with Shirley Caldwell.”

“Shirley gives excellent home from home dog boarding care to any dog that stays with her. Sometimes dogs are afraid to be away from their owners but Shirley puts them at ease and they come to love her. My dog absolutely loves her to bits and is sad when he has to come home. He gets lots of walks and plenty of company throughout the day during his ‘holiday’. I would certainly recommend this service to anyone who loves their pet enough to care for their wellbeing whilst they go on holiday.”

“Shirley is absolutely amazing and I trust her completely with my little Yorkie Baxter (he is the one in the pictures looking thoroughly chilled out!). Baxter has some attachment issues but I have learnt so much myself from Shirley and how to resolve his problems. Shirley is amazing with him, he doesn’t like a lot of people but he does love his Auntie Shirley. I always know when I leave him with Shirley that he is being well cared for. I know he follows her around the whole time and even sleeps outside her bedroom! I can’t recommend Shirley enough, she is truly brilliant with dogs and genuinely cares for them. Don’t hesitate to book your dogs stay here, you won’t be disappointed.”

“Shirley is a genuine and caring lady, with your pets best interest at heart. She looked after our 2 dogs and dealt with their “behavioural quirks” in a professional and thoughtful way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her – a home from home for your pet. We will definitely be returning.”

“I have been visiting Auntie Shirley for the last 8 weeks for Day Care and she has taught me lots of things and helps me to calm down. I am a little Yorkie cross and can be very boisterous. I have made lots of friends both dog and human whilst with Auntie Shirley. She has a lot of patience and has mine and the other dogs welfare at heart. Thank You Auntie Shirley.”

“Archie is a regular visitor and loves his time at “Aunty Shirley’s”. So we can get on with enjoying our holiday and know that he’s a happy doggy! .”

“I have used this lady services for the last 8 years for my dog ‘Maureen’ and can definately recommend her. She is outstanding in her commitment for caring and looking after the well being of the dog whilst you are away. Whilst you are away, the dog is looked after in every aspect ie walked, played with, fed etc and I know I can go on holiday without worrying at the back of my mind how my dog is doing. I have never felt the need to write a review for Shirley, but now wish to tell everyone about her excellent service. .”

“My dog Jasper thoroughly enjoys going on his holidays to “Aunty Shirley’s ” He gets 5 star treatment, as do we- the owners. Shirley obviously loves the dogs in her care and they love her. She is firm but kind and treats your dog as you would treat them yourself. Whilst I am away I do not even have to think about Jasper – let alone worry. I know he is having a great time – plus Shirley sends me Jasper updates. I would recommend Holidays for Dogs any time – and frequently do. .”
