A. When did you join Home from Home?
I joined Home from Home just before Christmas 2016 and it was easier than I thought it was going to be. The ladies in the office are so friendly and made me feel at ease. Meeting Martin (the MD) was just like talking to an old friend, Home from Home are a company that makes you feel like you've been there for years.

B. What made you decide that you wanted to look after other people’s dogs?
I love dogs and I decided that after losing our dog earlier in the year the house just wasn't the same. Sadly I could not afford to get another puppy/dog so I thought about looking after other people's while they go away on holidays etc. Rather than their beloved pet going into a kennel, why not let them come into my home and be treated like they would in their own home.

C. What do you like most about working with us?
The things I like most about working with you all is, the ladies in the office are so friendly (Lorna, Sasha and Lynn) they always make me laugh and are there if I need any help or advice (or just a chinwag lol). I always get asked if I am happy with a dog before he/she is placed with me, meeting the dog and owner is also a great way of getting to know the dog before they come to stay. Hopefully this will be something I can do for a long time.

A. When did you join Home from Home?
My first booking with you was in 2008.

B. What made you decide that you wanted to look after other people’s dogs?
I had never been without a dog since I was born, there was always a dog in the house. So when my last one had to be put to sleep I was lost, then I read your advert in the local paper and I thought that sounds just right for me, all the pleasure of caring for the dog but not having to suffer the loss when they die. To me this job (if you can call it that) has been the best thing for me. I get lots of lovely dogs to look after and some I hate to let go especially Porscha and most of all Mollie as Sasha knows only too well.

C. What do you like most about working with us?
I love working with you all as everyone is so friendly, it's more like family than friends.

Reviews

We have only used Home from Home once (last September), but Home from Home quickly found us a local family who gave our lovely Golden Retriever the warmest of welcomes.

A very satisfactory experience for all involved.

Mr L, Berkshire - February 2016 - TRUSTPILOT

This is the very first time we have ever used Home from Home for our dog Juri; we were nervous about leaving him with someone we didn't know.

Home from Home clearly chose someone who loves dogs and really was lovely….his minder Sherri gave him a Christmas stocking and even Christmas dinner (after of course, asking us first). She was simply WONDERFUL and we could not have asked for a better "Home from Home" for our much-loved baby boy. Sherri sent us photos and updates daily...honestly, he was so well looked after, that we really didn't worry about him at all!

We will 100% use this service again, and will surely request the same minder, as she was just perfect.
