“Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Dom at Sheltondogs. I truly can say without his help I wouldn’t have been able to go in to work over the last few weeks. Myself and my wife are both key workers, we were really let down where we use to take our dog sam to daycare! Several people recommended shelton dogs to my wife and they came highly recommended, since then we haven’t looked back. Sam has such a great time and always has great fun. Shelton dogs is a fantastic place to leave your dog. Thank you so much.”

“ Dominic has been looking after my two little chihuahuas for a few years now and can't speak highly enough as to how he takes good care of them. I wouldn't have them go anywhere else. I reluctantly put them in kennels for a couple of weeks but one of them came back really unhappy. Dom looks after them well, its home from home as they are used to just lazing on the sofa all day the pooches also love their walks in the countryside which backs onto his property away from the main road. They are always very excited to see Dom and his teenage boys. We are always kept well informed as to their behaviour and get some lovely photos sent to us. I worry about the tiny one as he is a faddy eater. If my little pooch won't eat then he is coaxed by being hand fed or plays a little game with him. We have to do this sometimes as he can't afford to lose the weight. It's really good to be kept informed and Dominic really does give that personal touch. Already booked them in for next years holiday! Carol Black ”

“My Name is Renny. I'm a 5 year old yorkie. My owners decided that they wanted to have a long weekend away and booked me in with Dominic. I had the best time and made new friends. My mum Diana, is very fussy about where she lets me go on holiday, so she must like Dominic, and she must feel confident that I would be looked after well. I had lots of pictures taken, to keep mum up dated on how I was settling . I went for long walks with my new friends. I had the best time and Dominic treats me like his own. I can't wait to visit again. I'm sure it'll be soon”

“What can I say about Dominic and Shelton Dogs ? I was so worried about putting my dog into care having not been away before. I felt at ease once i dropped my dog off and was so happy with the care received over mine and her week's break. Dom sent photos of my dog whilst I was away so I could see she was happy and having fun with the other dogs. After doing this once I felt reassured that I could leave her again and know she was in very safe hands and would be very well cared for. Would highly recommend Dom and have done to my Mum who has also used Dom : )”
