What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!


This is the first time we’ve used Durham Dog Care, and would certainly not hesitate to do so again.

We boarded Daffy for 17 nights and were extremely satisfied. We took Daffy for one night’s stay just before we left on holiday so the surroundings would be familiar to her when we left her for the longer period. We were so pleased to have done that as she settled in straight away. Thanks to both of you for doing such a grand job caring for Daphne. It’s very reassuring to know she can stay somewhere she so obviously loves to go.

Your service from start to finish has been exceptional. Not only were we impressed with your relaxed yet friendly attitude our dog (Mikey) seemed to really enjoy his time with you and has returned to us a very happy boy.

Without a doubt we would recommend your services to friends and family. You were professional and seemed to really understand dogs and their behaviours. Our dog is part of our family and we felt comfortable leaving him with you

Durham Dog Care provides an excellent, personal service. We were very happy to leave Linus, our cocker spaniel in their capable hands. He seemed to have had a lovely time whilst we were on holiday – it is reassuring to know that your pet is so well cared for. He came home happy and clean and happily trotted in on his return for a second visit.
