"We have been boarding Zion our Dalmatian with Bobbie for nearly 2 years now. He is so excited when we on our way to Bobbie's . Zion is full of energy and the long walks and the fun that he has during boarding is perfect to keep him engaged. Zion enjoys the company of Shadow, Beauty and all the other great friends he meets during boarding. Zion has always been full of beans and the training he receives from Bobbie while boarding has been an additional bonus for us. Keep up the good work Bobbie. Zion loves it and has made you his extended family.

"We have used Bowser's home boarding facilities for a number of years . Our previous dog Elsa (Labrador) spent many happy short breaks with Bobbie and fitted in perfectly with her home surroundings. So it was NO surprise we have returned to use Bowser's home boarding facilities with our new addition Alfie, a boisterous Cocker Spaniel. It is reassuring to know not only does Bobbie look after your dog with loving care, she will also work on areas of training with your dog whilst in her care, the changes we have found after each boarding have been positively amazing. We would have no hesitation in recommending her professional services, safe in the knowledge your pet dog will receive the love & recreational care you require."

"I have used Bobbie at Bowsers Dog Services for over 2 years now for my little dog Ollie , not only for our family holidays but also for work or football tournaments. Ollie does not miss us at all when he is  at Bobbie's , she cares for him like one of her own, and Ollie loves her, when we near her home he can not wait to get out of the car and pulls us up the drive. Bobbie is so helpfull with any dogs  needs, and will help to train them for you whilst they are staying in her care. I can go away completely happy knowing that Ollie is being well cared for,  all children deserve a dog but sometimes the world can be a no go zone for them, Bobbie is always there to help me and advise me.I'm so lucky to have found  her for her support with Ollie and he loves her."  Thank you very much

"We enjoy that our Vizzla Ruben is cared for  in a  home from home environment whilst we are away on holidays, we love the long walks  that Bobbie provides in a variety of places . Bobbie really connects with the dogs and provides obediance training  for both us which has been invaluable, thanks for helping us out and I have recommended Bowsers Dog Services to our family and friends with no hesitation".


"We have a labradoodle named Dexter and after booking our family holiday realised we need someone to care for him whilst we were away ,after  trawling the internet and asking people , I found Bowsers Dog Service's . After visiting for an assessment with Bobbie, I immediately knew it was the right place for him. Bobbie knew exactly what Dexter needed and it was obvious from the start that she loved all the dogs in her care. I think he'd live there if I let him. Not only does he get all the exercise and socialisation a dog needs , but Bobbie makes a real effort to teach him good manners and constantly encourages positive behaviour. Bobbie treats all the dogs as if they were her own and still maintains the role of pack leader which is so important to ensure the safety of all the dogs." Thank you Bobbie



Toby is so welcomed and loved by Bobby and Gary and they make his stay 'home from home'. I feel so at ease that Toby is well cared for and treated like their own dogs which allows us to have a good break away knowing that Toby is being loved. I would highly recommend Bobby's services. For us, Bowsers is the only place for Toby to stay when we are away. Thank you ,Bobby.---

We have a chocolate labrador ralph. Carnt thank Bobbie enough for looking after him.He has stayed twice now and the first time we took him Ralph was quite a hand full, the training he got in just a week was amazing. He stopped pulling on his lead, came back when u shouted him and walked to heal. Bobbie showed us pictures of his days out, he had a brilliant time, that good that when we took him the second time he couldnt wait to get out of the car. We have already booked Ralph in again for our holiday in May. Thanks again Bobby.

I first met Bobbie when she was teaching at Swinton   Dog Training and Obedience. After this I used her home-boarding service. As she was already an experienced dog trainer, Bobbie was superb when dealing with my young American Bulldog, Cwtch. As a first time dog owner she pointed me in the right direction when it came to tackling some of the challenges that I would face as my young pup matures. During my dogs 3 day visit, Bobbie  imparted some great, basic, obedience training to both Cwtch  and myself, such as how to wait for food calmly and attentively, to walk to heel & how to greet other dogs and humans in the sit position. Bobbie provides a really good service with loads of really long walks to keep the hounds satisfied.

Max and Milo, our 1.5 year old cockerpoos love being taken out by Bobbie and boarding at her home. Right from the start we decided that we would need a dog walker and, preferably, a dog walker who also boarded dogs at their home for times when we were on holiday. We knew that boarding our dogs at a kennels would not be suitable for Max and Milo. Bowsers dog services was recommended to us and we are so glad we were given the details of the dog services that Bobbie provides. From the first time we met Bobbie we felt confident that Max and Milo would be well looked after in her care and Bobbie has provided a dog walking/dog boarding service ever since for both our dogs. Max and Milo enjoy being walked with other dogs by Bobbie and the different places she takes them. With her knowledge and experience we have the peace of mind that when they board with her they are in safe hands and I am sure they love it too. Its like a mini holiday for them. I would highly recommend the dog service that Bobbie provides to anyone.Louise Henson and Geoff Burman

Bobbie, I was always very worried about leaving Molly ( my Golden Retriever) due to past experience. You listened to my concerns and you understood, first time I left her I  was a bag of nerves and you text me regularly so I could try and relax, I  even got a few pics. I couldn’t think of a better place to leave Molly whilst we are away, I know she gets everything she could possibly need and more. You are amazing with Molly and she loves coming to see you. she sleeps like a baby and she is always shattered when she gets home which shows us just how much fun she must have at yours, all I can say is a massive thank you for being understanding and amazing with my Molly. Love Danielle and Matthew. ( and of course Molly thanks you too :)



Hi Bobby, thanks for looking after Miska for us while we were on holiday, she loves staying with you . She always notice`s when we arrive at your house, she jumps out of the car all excited can`t wait to see you . We know Siberian husky's are very shy and timid and are not easy to care for, but you know how to do this very well. When we leave Miska she is not distressed and very happy to see us when we return. We know she is well exercised and cared for. We will defiantly be bringing her back again soon. Thanks John



Our boston terrier Rufus has stayed at Bowsers on quite a few occasions over the past two years, staying for a week, weekend or over night. He is always been very happy to arrive and drags my husband up the drive to be met by Bobbie who he absolutely loves! he is also reluctant to leave when he is picked up, which is very reassuring. Bobbie has given us photos of rufus on his walks etc which is also a lovely touch. Altogether a lovely home from home. Thanks Bobbie.

Oscar our (Collie x ) loves going out on his walks with Bobbie (Bowsers Dog Services). She takes him to such a wide variety of places and meeting up with other dogs,  keeps him amused and socialised. He has been with Bowsers for the last two and a half years and he always looks forward to going out with Bobbie. It is great value for money knowing that Oscar is happy and  exercised whilst we are out at work. Thank you Bobbie.

Buddy (a Cockerpoo) absolutely loves going to Bowsers, he has been going there since he was a puppy and I know he is in the best hands. He gets so excited every morning I drop him off and literally runs to the front door. He loves Bobbie, her two dogs (Shadow and Beauty) and all of his other doggie friends. He gets so much love, attention and exercise that he doesn't want to come home! Not only that, Bobbie  provides brilliant advice on training, food and socialisation! I would recommend Bowsers to any dog owners out there. The perfect place to leave your beloved pooch! Thanks Bobbie!

We have been using Bowsers for some 6 months and have found the service welcoming, efficient, and our dog has been looked after. Our dog, a young male Labrador, has been going to Bowsers on a day care basis twice a week. He is with Bowsers all day and is walked at least twice a day. The owners, Bobbie and Gary, love dogs (they have two of their own) and treat all client dogs as if they were their own. We are totally happy with and grateful to Bowsers for the care they show our dog. He loves going to Bowsers, this is obvious by the way he is welcomed and the way he loves Bobbie and Gary. Our dog is a member of our family and the best recommendation we can make, is that we trust Bowsers with looking after a loved one!!



Lottie our Border Collie had a great time when she stayed with Bobbie. When we took Lottie for her 'sniffing out session, we knew instantly that she would be happy at Bowsers. Lottie stayed for 5 nights on her first visit and it was the first time we had left her – like worried parents all over again! I think Lottie had a better time on her holiday, than we did on ours! She came back to us really happy (must be all those long walks!) and we've booked her in a few more times this year already. I would certainly recommend Bowsers and Bobbie to anyone who wants their dog cared for and loved when they are away. We also got some photos of Lottie having a great time with the other dogs which was really nice touch. Thank you so much Bobbie & Gary for looking after Lottie so well.

"Our German Sheppard Wolf stayed at Bowsers for a few days in Feb 2014 , whilst  we were away and he had the time of his life. I have to say it gives great reassurance to be able to see what your dog is up to every day on face book and Bobbie was more than happy for us to call her and see how  he was settling in. He has made some great doggy friends in Beauty & Shadow and was treated as part of their family, he will definitely be coming back soon. Could'nt recommend a more 5 star service thank you Bobbie;)xx.
