About Ian

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
** Sorry - we are not accepting new clients. If you have booked with us in the past, or have an upcoming reservation, we look forward to seeing you!

We love dogs. We have looked after over four dozen dogs so far, from Miniature Pinschers to Golden Retrievers. We have a large fenced back yard; dogs get full run of the house and lots of cuddles and love. We have plenty of balls and toys and treats. Your dog will join our Labrador Retriever on two 45-minute walks a day. Most days there is also a 3rd (bonus!) walk of around 30 minutes. Many walks have swimming opportunities - hooray! There's at least one person home at all times. Most dogs don't want to leave. Contact us to arrange a stay for your four-legged family member.

My usual sitter recommended Ian -who came through in very short notice! Thanks so much for taking great care of my 15.5 years old med size dog (Oscar)
Miko is excited everytime we'really about to visit Ian's and left happy. I would recommend his service.
Ian and his wife couldn't have been nicer. They sent us photos and texts while we were away of our puppy having fun with their dog Java. They went for a big daily walk and Louis came home tuckered out and happy. In fact, I'm sure he missed them since unlike us, they have a big fenced yard and a doggy roommate to play with! We will definitely use this host again.
Couldn't ask for better puppy sitters. Ian, Audrey & Java are wonderful!! Tucker is always excited to go and is super happy (and sleepy) when I pick him up. Tucker needs oral medication everyday and Ian is great with administering it to him :)
My energetic aussie Cooper always has a great time staying with Ian and his family.
The dogs had a great time - and Ian was fantastic taking them for so may walks! Thanks again and I highly recommend - I know we'll send the girls again!
I needed to find a puppysitter that was great with my French Bulldog & who could accomadate my long work hours. After the meet & greet with Ian, Audrey & Java I knew Tucker would be well taken care of. He always has a huge smile when I pick him up and is tired from a day of walks & playtime. Tucker stays 5 days a week during the day and is so excited to go each morning. I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs someone to watch their pups.
Did the initial "meet and greet" with my dog and resident dog in the backyard which is spacious and private with high fence: perfect for dogs.

I forgot food and treats: hosts said, "No problem, we'll take care of it."

Timely communications during the booking cycle and received a couple of pics of my dog afterwards.
Winston had a great experience staying with Ian and Audrey. They sent us pictures to let us know that he was doing ok, these pictures give the owners peace of mind. We would recommend this dog vacay to others.
Ian and Audrey were fantastic hosts and my chocolate lab came home tired and happy. The photo updates were much appreciated. I will definitely be booking again.
Lucy always enjoys her visit and I feel confident that she is safe!
Our Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Kaia, had a wonderful two week stay with Ian and Audrey. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We will definitely be using them again in the future. Kaia had constant companionship with both Ian and Java and we were thrilled!
Lucy had another fun filled visit and mom got so many pictures! Thanks Ian, Audrey and Java:)
Lucy had another great visit with Ian and Audrey. She got to see her friend Java and lots of play. Thanks so much!
both of our dogs (kili and yukon) have stayed with ian, audrey and java on two separate occasions, and for both stays, my husband and i have felt total confidence that our pups would have the best stay with them. we get updates on what the pups have been doing, and how they have been doing. and when we pick them up after our vacation, they always look so happy, which makes us very happy. we feel that our pups' individual needs are catered to, and we would not hesitate to recommend ian, audrey and java for anybody looking for a responsible and respected boarder.
Lucy stayed with Ian and Audrey for a few days and was extremely excited when I dropped her off. She obviously feels very comfortable as she ran into their home. Received some nice photos from Ian while I was away. Drop off and pick up was easy and convenient. Thanks Ian and Audrey and Java:)
Lucy had another great stay with Ian. She was exhausted when she got home.. always a good sign. Some great photos were sent to me during her stay! Thanks Ian
Our dog had a great time at Ian's house. I highly recommend a meet and greet before hand. Our dog was able to play in the nice, big yard in the back and search around the house. It was great that the dogs were able to go outside and back in when they wanted. Ian was also great at ensuring they get lots of exercise. Our dog went for 2 - 1 hour walks by the time we picked her up in the afternoon.
Brodie always has a great stay with Ian, Audrey and Java! Comes home relaxed and happy
Our dog Phantom loved his stay with Ian! Phantom felt completely at home at Ian's very dog friendly home and can't wait to return for another vacay!
Ian and Audrey were great with our dog. Our dog Gabby is a challenge to take care of for those new to her, but Ian and Audrey were very understanding and capable. With their chocolate lab Java, they went on daily walks. And their big backyard is a bonus, as Gabby has a high energy level and enjoyed running and fetching balls.
We will definitely request their time again in the future.
Brodie seemed to enjoy his time with Ian,Audrey and Java. The pictures that were posted were awesome.
Lucy had an overnighter. She is always happy to go see Ian and Java. It is so nice not to have to worry about where Lucy will stay when I need to be away!
Ian was great and very accommodating. There were a lot of people to choose from, but after seeing Ian's positive reviews, it set my mind at ease. When I picked up Oreo after a week, she seemed happy and tired, which is good because that means she had fun! Thanks for looking after Oreo!
Lucy had a great stay with Ian and his dog Java. Received some great photos... felt reassured she was in good hands:)
We met with Ian before booking and he was very accommodating . When I dropped Lucy off, she ran straight for the front door with excitement. I feel totally comfortable with leaving Lucy there for 10 days in March! I think Lucy will be well cared for.
Great stay for Breton, he had a blast!
Luigi had another great vacation with Ian and their lovely Lab Java…. Second time and again he didnt want to go home with us :) thanks again for everything and tiring him out as usual
This was the first time we ever left our 9 month male lab alone at a different place. He loved it soo much he didnt want to leave with us when we came to pick him up he actually ignored us lol ..... They are the best hosts they took care of him like their own and we got a very very happy and tired dog!!! Perfect :) We plan on taking our dog there again anytime we go away....
Fantastic stay for my dog Breton, loved it, the lake, his friend. Ian took care of him like he was its own dog.
Ian and his wife are awesome! Hanks had a lot of fun. I definitely will come back again : )
Outstanding hosts! We walked into the backyard when I dropped my dogs off in the morning for day care, and after being introduced to the two larger dogs, my little ones were at ease right away, sniffing and running around in the lovely, grassy back yard. They were happy and tuckered out when I picked them up in the afternoon. Pawesome :)
My dogs had a great time with Ian, they have never stayed away from home so we were a little nervous but we had nothing to worry about . They were healthy and happy when we picked them up...I don't think they even missed us!
I think our pup had a better vacation than we did. Wonderful hosts.
