Our Amazing Testimonials

"I have never left Rosie with anyone outside of family members and was very concerned at doing so. However, I couldn't have wished for anything better than leaving her with Karen and Craig in Knaresborough. Rosie was so well-looked after and happy and the emails to us of her during her stay with them were the icing on the cake. I would certainly recommend them to anyone and a huge thank you to them. She will be back."


Very Affordably Priced

"Poppy, our 5-month-old puppy had a fantastic time with Karen and Craig and just loved playing with Bobby and Oscar. We couldn't have asked for a better couple to look after Poppy and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting the personal touch when looking after your dog. We will definitely be using them again."


"Gusto had a lovely weekend with Karen and Craig, and they were very helpful and accommodating. We will be using them again."


"Totally impressed. Lottie came home clean and happy. She'd obviously been very well-looked after, would thoroughly recommend them"


"Our dog Charlie is a very nervous dog and we therefore needed someone who we could fully rely upon to meet his needs, both as a day boarder and also when staying overnight. In Karen and Craig we are delighted to have found a couple who have a real affinity for looking after dogs by providing care of the highest quality. Charlie has never had any problems either staying with them in their own home or when returning back to us.
