About me:

I started running VIPPIES in 2006 with my partner Rob. We had 4 cats at the time, although we had both had dogs and other various pet as we grew up. I have always had pets and would not want to be without them. I offer day care dogs and puppies, most of our dogs have been coming to us since they were puppies. I also offer foster care for dogs and small caged animals. I have a lovely mature and secure garden, ideal to allow the dogs to play and a separate enclosed area where we can put the guinea pigs etc to graze without being bothered by the dogs.

Areas covered:

None, I spend all day in the office and at home looking after our guests.

If I could be any animal for a day I would be…

I would be a cat because I would like to curl up and sleep all day and go out and about on the tiles all night.
