Valentina & Felipa

Christine was an amazing Mummy to my two little doggies whilst I was away – I could not thank her enough for taking them into her home and caring for them to such a high level.  I would highly recommend her to anyone with a dog.  Any personal references can be obtained by texting me on my mobile number that Christine has.



Dylan was so happy to see Christine again, this time for a longer stay.  He had a great time staying at Oliver’s and Christine went to great lengths to ensure he was well looked after and comfortable.  Nothing is too much trouble at Oliver’s and it gives us great peace of mind to know we can leave Dylan in such safe hands.  We highly recommend Oliver’s – our dogs are all precious to us and they deserve a lovely holiday too! 



Thank you Christine so so so much for looking after our boy Leo.  As usual your love and knowledge in what you do has given Leo a stress free and enjoyable time, taking care of him as we do ourselves.  I didn’t worry about him once and thanks for all those lovely pictures of him obviously enjoying himself.  He also made some lovely new doggy friends.  Also, knowing he had the comfort of your bed is extra special!  Thanks again Christine, you are an angel.  If you weren't available to look after Leo we wouldn't go away! 


Bonnie & Tassie

Thank you so much Christine for looking after Bonnie & Tassie with such love and care.  Their first overnight stay with you and only their second night away in 3 years.  It was a wonderful feeling leaving them with you, confident they would have the very best care, affection and masses of cuddles.  You are an absolute star!  I know they will be overjoyed to see you again in a few weeks.  Thank you again to a very special lady.  PS the grooming was a lovely bonus!


Thank you so much for taking great care of my baby.  It’s such a relief to me to be able to relax knowing she’s in such caring hands.  


I know my little fur baby is in excellent hands with Christine.  Oliver’s is a real home from home, no cages or kennels, luxury on a daily basis.  We have a lovely time away knowing she is safe and happy.  

Tilly & Poppy

My two little dogs love staying with Christine when we go away.  Her home is their home and everything is geared for her doggie visitors.


Kai has been staying with Chris for over 5 years whilst we go away.  I can honestly say I wouldn’t leave him with anyone else.  Kai always has a lovely time and I know for Kai it is certainly “home from home”.


Dylan is our Cavalier King Charles.  He is nearly 11 years old and has a heart murmur for which he takes daily medication.  It’s really important to us to find the right person to take care of Dylan if we can’t take him with us.  This is the first time he has stayed at Oliver’s.  Christine looked after him so well, it was obvious to see how happy he was to be there and we have the utmost confidence in Christine to look after our dear little dog.  We had regular updates so were reassured that all was well along with lovely photos of Dylan showing him having a great time.  Christine is a very caring person and passionate about dogs.  We highly recommend Oliver’s!  



I have just had another fabulous two week holiday at my favourite Hotel – Oliver’s!  Luxurious accommodation, fabulous food, and daily leisure activities with my fellow guests.  The weather wasn’t great but Christine certainly more than made up for that with all her love and attention.  This time I had Tess & Maisie to play with – they were real sweeties and there was room on the sofa for all of us to cuddle up together.  I don’t know how Christine does it but she always finds the best places to go for great walks, great smells and lots of other playmates.  And the toy box, as soon as I arrive I rush in to see what’s there as there are always some new ones!  I’ve checked the diary and I have another holiday scheduled and will look forward to another great stay at Oliver’s.  Otis xxxxxxxxx


We have used Oliver’s Dog Boarding services several times to look after Bob, our black Labrador.  Christine is very experienced, professional and attentive to detail.  She provides a perfect environment for her “guests”, full of play, exercise, love, cuddles and care.  The photo and text updates are great and keep us in touch.  It gives us total peace of mind to enjoy our break, knowing he is in safe hands and having fun.  We always come back to a happy and contented dog.  It’s like Bob has had a holiday too!


Thank you for looking after Jimmy in such a wonderful and caring way.  I can honestly say I have never sent my dog to such a great place.  We can now go on holiday safe in the knowledge that Jimmy is being looked after in such a wonderful home.  There is no better place to leave him!


Thank you very much for looking after Milly.  It was her first time away from us.  We loved the photos Chris sent, we wouldn’t leave her anywhere else.  She had a great time with Chris and we would recommend Oliver’s to anyone without hesitation. It’s home-from-home.

Fleur, Alice & Billy Boy

Our three Yorkshire Terriers have stayed at Oliver’s Dog Boarding for six consecutive years, once or twice annually.  They really enjoy the wonderful loving care and home from home atmosphere.  They settle in immediately and head straight to the toy box!  Chris has enabled us to take holidays abroad.  Before finding Oliver’s we had previously remained in the UK.  We can totally relax, happy in the knowledge that our dear family are settled and happy in this very caring and special place which is so professionally run by Chris.  We receive updates on our dogs when we are away and wonderful photos.  Chris has a great fondness and understanding of her companions.  We cannot praise and recommend Oliver’s enough.  The accommodation is superb and immaculate.  We are very lucky to have our dogs cared for by Chris in her special home.


Thank you Chris for the adorable photos of Arnold.  Many thanks for looking after him SO well.  He is well and truly loved on his holiday with you.  I highly recommend anyone to come to you and look after their precious dog.  Beware; they might not want to come home!!!


Absolutely out of this world!  So pleased to see our dog with a smiley face when we collected her.  We know she had a fab time at Oliver’s.


Our Labrador Toby has been staying with Chris for more years than I can remember.  He is getting on a bit now – slowing down and needing medication but Chris takes it all in her stride.  We tried a number of different home boarding places before we found Oliver’s as Toby didn’t do well in kennels.  We can honestly say that Chris looks after him as though he were her own.  In fact, we book our holidays and mini breaks around Toby staying with Chris.  If Oliver’s is fully booked, then we don’t go away!!  The photos and updates are great and just confirm the fun and love Toby gets from Chris.  We can’t thank you enough for looking after our “big baby”.

Kato, Priya & Lillian

My husband and I scoured the Internet looking for a home from home dog carer to look after our boisterous 3 year old border collie, Kato and our 18 month old spaniel cross, Priya, for our son’s wedding weekend.  Having visited a few settings, we were very pleased when we visited Oliver’s Dog Boarding.  Christine exudes a kind and caring nature and is clearly passionate about dogs.  We immediately booked our dogs to stay with her – one year in advance!  Three months ago, my son stressed his concern at leaving his 6 month old dachshund in kennels.  We telephoned Christine who kindly offered to look after Lillian as well.  Last weekend, as we drove to Christine’s house with our three dogs, we were filled with trepidation because our dogs always come with us on our camping holidays and have never been left with anyone else.  However, as soon as we entered Christine’s house, she was visibly excited about looking after our beloved dogs for the weekend and it was apparent they felt the same way.  During the weekend Christine sent us reassuring text messages.  We can’t express how relieved we all were to hear that Kato, Priya and Lillian were having a lovely time, were eating, sleeping and having fun.  When we collected them it was obvious from the numerous dog toys scattered all over the front room that they had been having the time of their lives.  Although pleased to see us, none of them were in a rush to get out through the front door – a good sign that all was well.  We can’t over stress how brilliant Christine is with dogs and how wonderful her home from home provision is for your pets.  We would all highly recommend Oliver’s Dog Boarding and will certainly be using Christine’s facilities again.    



My Mum is writing this for me!  Thank you for caring for me so well on my first sleepover.  Mum & Dad couldn’t believe how relaxed I was when they came to pick me up!  They loved the texts you sent telling them how settled I was.  I heard Mum say they are really happy to leave me with you in the future.  Thanks also for the photos and my cuddles.  Jasmine xxx


My labrador/boxer cross has been staying with Chris for his hols for 3 years.  Sometimes a few days but also for periods of 3 weeks.  He bounds in to say hello when he arrives has kisses and cuddles with Chris, checks out the toy boxes and settles straight down.  I love receiving e mails and photos from Chris showing what fun they are having together and also with the other guests.  I am sure he thinks he is at scout camp, romping through the woods or cavorting on the beach.  Whist he is always pleased to see us, he is never eager to leave when we go to collect him.  He is always clean, he eats well but doesn’t lose/gain weight and he clearly adores staying with Chris.  There is no way that he is ever staying anywhere else – I would rather change my holiday plans.  I cannot recommend Chris enough!


Sebby, Hala & Jess

Thank you so much for taking such good care of our trio whilst we were away.  They have stayed with you before and it was lovely when they returned and recognised you immediately!  They were so happy to see you again.  It was also great to receive your regular updates and photos.  Jessie is getting older now and recently has been reluctant to take much exercise.  Since her return, she has been very much more active, we owe you a big thank you.  We will always come to Oliver’s when we need our dogs cared for.  All three send their love and we send a big thank you.


I would highly recommend Oliver’s Dog Boarding in Cornwall.  When I go away, I know Ronnie is in extremely capable hands.  He loves his holiday there!



Emily has been going to Oliver’s Dog Boarding for about 3 years.  I cannot recommend Oliver’s Dog Boarding enough.  My dog loves Chris; it’s a home from home for her.  Chris has a genuine true passion for the dogs and it shows.  Emily enjoys her stay very much.


Thank you so much for taking care of Milla.  When I left her I felt completely at ease driving away and happy in the knowledge that she would have all the attention she loves.  It was great to receive your updates and photos whilst away.  I could see how well she had settled and the friendship she had with Harry, she definitely made herself at home!  Milla settled really well when I got her home which confirmed that she had been completely content in my absence.  I will certainly book her in for future holidays with you.


Our 5 year old westie has stayed with Chris for another holiday.  Each time we go away, we know he is having such a good time (as evidenced from the fabulous photos we receive).  He is so happy playing with his doggy friends.  We know he is in safe and happy hands with Chris which is so reassuring.  Thanks again Chris, you are fab!!!


Oliver’s came highly recommended by our friends that also use this service.  As a family, we were nervous about leaving Monty, our 3 year old high energy Sprocker.  However, Chris at Oliver’s was brilliant.  Chris had a fantastic immediate connection with Monty and her home is doggy paradise.  We were kept fully up-to-date while away on what became a lovely holiday for Monty.  This allowed us to relax, knowing he was in brilliant hands.  We would highly recommend Oliver’s. 

Poppy, Pippa & Tilly 

I cannot thank you enough for looking after our dogs.  We could really enjoy our holiday knowing they were in such safe hands and they clearly loved staying with you!! It was great to receive updates as well. We will definitely not hesitate to board them with you again!



Thanks for looking after Bob so well. You really do give is peace of mind and we appreciate your loving, friendly and professional approach (as does Bob)!


Sherlock has stayed at Oliver’s several times and he loves it.  When he arrives, he runs to the door and I know that he is happy going there.  We receive photos of his time away and he always looks happy.  I would recommend Oliver’s to anyone who loves their dogs like we do (or should I say our baby)!


Just picked up Mac from Chris at Oliver’s dog boarding. 
This was his third stay, the last two years ago. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it myself but as soon as we turned off the main road Mac sat up howling and whining with pleasure (same reaction he makes when we go the seaside)!  On stopping he dived out of the car and headed for the door barking, Chris got the biggest welcome. He was pleased to be back
.  I've said it before but I won't leave Mac anywhere else when we go away, even though we drive for over 3 hours to get him there!   He is so cared for, spoilt rotten in fact!  He just adores Chris which says it all.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Oliver’s for your dog; it is truly home from home (possibly even better than that in our case!  He gets to go to the beach more!) 


We can now go away on holiday and not have to worry about our baby Harry, our Westie.  He has been so happy and enjoyed playing with the other dogs.  Your lovely photographs show him playing with Milo, Otis and Mac over the time he spent with you.  We were also pleased that you were happy to let us bring his regular frozen food, as he has in the past had a few issues with his skin.  Harry will always stay in the safe and loving care of Chris whenever we go on holiday.  A very big thank you.


George & Barney

Once again we placed our little boy George with Chris, but this time we also had our new boy Barney go as well.  We knew George would be ok but Barney was a rescue dog, we haven't had him long.  From the minute we arrived for drop off Chris made Barney feel at home.  We picked them up today after two weeks; our boys had a great time.  Chris also took the trouble to sort out Barney with his food as the one we had him on wasn't good for his stomach.  Chris is amazing, we go away with no worries and she kept us posted throughout our trip to let us know the boys were doing well. 
Thanks Chris you are amazing :) 


Jess is the latest member of our family and so we were particularly keen to seek out the best carer we could find.  Oliver’s is the perfect home from home.  We have used Chris’s excellent service before and will continue to do so on future occasions in the knowledge that Jess is very happy and well looked after by a passionate carer.  We are incredibly grateful.


We were so happy to leave our dog Lady with Christine as she is so passionate and caring about the dogs she looks after.  Christine is the first person we have left Lady with and would not hesitate to do it again! She is truly wonderful.


Arnold spent such a lovely holiday with you Chris and we would not hesitate to home board with you again. Many thanks from us and from a very happy Arnold! 


Just wanted to write a review to say how fantastic your service is! We have had Bailey since April as a re homing so were apprehensive about putting him into boarding. Your offer of a 24 hour overnight stay was perfect. We loved your amazing dog friendly home and were immediately impressed with how happy Bailey was. The first stay saw a surprising improvement in his self confidence. We then left for 3 weeks away on holiday. Well, you can just imagine our nerves! We knew we would miss him like crazy. You were just perfect, Christine! Pictures every other day reassured us that Bailey was having the time of his life, loads of friends and very happy! When we collected him he was bouncing and recognised us immediately (one of our fears). Gold star for you Christine! One problem.....he is so full of beans now, having got used to walks every day..that I am exhausted! No question where Bailey will stay next time we re away...if she has room!

Buddy & Ruby

So lucky to have found Chris and her beautiful dog Oliver to take care of our babies Buddy and Ruby. They are very nervous and unconfident little dogs. They went for their first visit yesterday. When I left them they barked,howled and cried which made it terribly difficult to leave. When I went back for them ...... Well what a turnaround! Buddy was playing and running around with Chris and Ruby was cuddling with her. They were giving her kisses and cuddles and Oliver was being the perfect gentleman around them. They can't wait to go back again and play. It's so difficult finding the right care for your fur babies, it's like finding childcare. You wouldn't leave your child with anyone you couldn't trust so why leave your pets? Chris showed exemplary care and love for both of them. She gained their confidence and trust. A massive Thankyou to Chris and Oliver. Buddy and Ruby will be back to torment you real soon!! 10/10!


Lovely to see Harry enjoying himself so much which is all down to you.  Thank you for having Harry for the day and overnight.  We can see that you love and care for all your dogs that stay with you.  Thank goodness we have found such a lovely and devoted lady.  We can now go on holiday and know that Harry will be very happy and have lots of fun in a very safe and loving home with you.  Thank you so much, 10 out of 10!


This was the first time we've ever left Marga, so we were thrilled that we managed to get her in at Oliver's. Chris regularly updated us with photos of Marga having fun, which we loved as we were missing her lots. Marga loves other dogs for company, so having two pals to play with in addition to the lovely Oliver was a real treat for her. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Oliver's, it's a real comfort to leave your dog with someone who loves them as much as you!



I've used Oliver's dog HOTEL! several times for my mate Woody.  Christine looks after him as if he were her own. She has a wonderful way with dogs and Woody’s never in a hurry to leave!!   Wouldn't leave him with anyone else.  Well done Christine for running such a professional business that allows us to go on holiday with no doggy worries!



I left my baby with Christine not sure he wanted to come back lol! Treated like a king rather than my prince Jack thanks again xxxx



Thank you very much indeed for my wonderful holiday. I had such a great time snuggling up with you and playing with Oliver and the other dogs. The walks were fantastic. Not many dogs get to go to the beach and the woods and paddle in the stream. I certainly would never agree to go to ordinary kennels but only come to your home to live as part of the family. 
I can't wait for them to go away again so that I can come and visit! 
I like all the pictures of me to remind me of what an exciting and interesting time I had. 
Love from Fudge x


I always leave my bichon, Kai with Chris knowing Chris's house is home from home . Kai always has a lovely time and I know I can go away happy in the knowledge he is being so well looked after and loved. Thanks Chris, you're a star . Xx



Once again we left our baby George with Chris, he had a fab time and she kept us updated with lots of pics, we wouldn't leave our Mr G anywhere else, the love and care she shows her visitors is just amazing. Thanks Chris I'm so glad we found you it makes going away stress free! xxxx

Mr Chips

We just wanted to thank you and Oliver for looking after our "new boy", six month old Mr Chips, aka Chippy! Having so lovingly looked after our previous dog Spike, we wouldn't take our precious Chippy anywhere else. The personal and loving care you give to your guests is unsurpassed. He really enjoyed the daily walks and runs on the beach and he has come home very happy. Basically if we need to go somewhere and Chippy can't come with us, then Chris is the only place we would take him, if we can't get him in, we won't go. Peace of mind is priceless.


We are very lucky to have found Chris at Oliver's Dog Boarding, Holly our Lab has never been away from us and she has just spent two days with Chris, who treats the dogs like her own, this will be the first of many stays with Chris.


We had the most relaxing holiday ever, knowing Otis was in the care of Chris and Oliver, the regular updates and FB posts were very reassuring but I think I knew when I met the dynamic duo that my Otis was in great hands! I would recommend Oliver's to one and all but won't - just in case she gets too busy, LOL. Seriously though on our return Otis was pleased to see us but quite quickly settled onto Christine's knee for a cuddle and fell asleep and we had to talk him into coming home - he had such a great time. Christine gives all the puppy dogs masses of love and attention and it shows. Oliver is so kind to share her and their home, thank you both. See you again very soon!


Thanks Chris for looking after our boy Dino, I didn’t have any worries
about him while we were away for the first time. Your love and
compassion for your animals you look after is outstanding and always
comes first with you. He had a fantastic time and he obviously loves you looking at how he is with you. You
are now classed as his second home and I wont have any hesitation in
recommending you to anyone else. Thanks again and look forward to
seeing you next time.  
Take Care  
Jan, Richard, Ben and of course Dino  


Chris is just fantastic! The level of care she gives to her boarders is just amazing. My Barney bear (eight yr old springer spaniel) loves staying with her and Oliver who is also just brilliant how he shares his home with the other dogs. Chris takes great care in looking after the dogs, from taking them on their favourite walks to keeping in contact with us , sharing his day details and taking photos. We have no hesitation in recommending Chris and Oliver. Please keep up the great work, we would be lost without you. Xx


Absolutely brilliant service from first contact to collecting Wilko. Wilko just loved it, he had a great time and sadly I think he would happily have stayed there!! You can leave your dog with peace of mind here. 100% recommended.



Chris is an absolute star and so clearly a massive dog lover that I have no worries whatsoever when leaving my beautiful boy with her. Jago always has such a fantastic time at Oliver's that he always seems a little sad to be back at home afterwards! Every stay with Chris is like a holiday for him, he goes to the beach, to the woods and makes lovely friends of the other dogs. Plus Chris sends us lovely photos of him that show how much fun he has had while he's there! Could not recommend Oliver's highly enough!



I left Layla, at very short notice, with Chris knowing that she would have all the care and love she would have had at home. What more can anyone ask for. Oliver's is amazing. Thanks, Chris x



I can't recommend Oliver's and Chris enough - so much so that our dog is still sulking from having to come back home!


Silver's mini-break

I can't thank Chris enough for looking after my greyhound, Silver, while I was away with work. She agreed to take him at very short notice, after a neighbour who was due to look after him let me down, but he'll always be staying at Oliver's from now on! Not only was he very well cared for all of the time he was there, Chris also uploaded photos onto Facebook, and emailed me afterwards, so that I could see how he was were such a nice touch, and very much appreciated by an over-anxious and over-protective mum! I can't recommend Chris’s services enough - thank you!



I can’t thank you enough for looking after my Sprocker, Alfie again for me.  Alfie is  rescue dog and I took him on with frantic separation anxiety.  Alfie has been my constant companion for 2 ½ years and of course, as any of us with four legged friends know, he is spoilt silly!  If I need to have him looked after I know I can leave him with Chris at Oliver’s free from worry.  Alfie is always eager to see Chris and enjoys his time there immensely.  I can leave him with complete peace of mind knowing he will get the kindest care and attention.  Chris’s patience and devotion to dogs in her care is endless.  She does everything to make sure it is a home from home for them, even allowing them to sleep on her bed if necessary!  Many thanks Chris.

Barbara and Alfie



Thank you so much for having Molly, we know she always has a holiday with you whenever you look after her . We love receiving the lovely pictures you take of her having a ball on the beach or just chilling out on your sofa !   We know that Molly is having an even nicer time with you than we are having! It makes leaving her so much easier knowing you care for her so well .


Monty & Tess

Ever had a holiday that was soooo good you were sad to go home? If Monty & Tess could speak I'm convinced this would be their view! You allowed us to enjoy an overdue break & relax safe in the knowledge our dogs were content & well cared for. Monty has assumed his position on the couch & sleeps blissfully & Tess is so well behaved! They don't seem to have missed us at all! Would definitely leave our dogs with Oliver's again! X

Nicole & Steve, Plymouth, Devon


Right from bringing our Jackadoodle pup home, Chris encouraged me to bring him to Oliver's to help with getting him socialised. This was an invaluable tip and now Buddy is a confident and well socialised little dog. He goes to stay with Chris when we go away and I wouldn't go if he couldn't go to Oliver's. He absolutely adores Chris (and the feeling is entirely mutual!) and he loves being around the other dogs, especially Oliver. Chris really goes the extra mile in providing a home away from home environment, and the fabulous photographs she provides just show what an amazing time your pooch is having. The only problem is telling him it's time to go home!


We have been coming to Olivers for about 4 years now. She has looked after our 2 huge Newfoundlands and lately our tiny, but lively Bichon. Absolutely wonderful service, a home from home.. lots of other dogs to play with, lovely walks, cuddles and photo updates of your pooch when you are away. Christine is a lovely warm person, and has a real love of all dogs. We would love to book our dog in for lots more holidays there. Heather.

Ben & Alfie

I left my two border collies with Chrissy. I thought they would miss me but not a second thought about me! They loved staying with Chrissy and Oliver. They had lovely long walks every day. Chrissy has kept in touch with me every day and has posted some beautiful photos of my boys Ben and Alfie. I can't thank Chrissy enough. I'm so pleased with the care and love that they have been given. I really recommend Chrissy to all you dog lovers out there as she is simply the best! I have already booked for next year. Thank you so much Chrissy for looking after my boys xxxxxx


We wanted to say a big thank you for looking after our mad/loveable Barney (springer spaniel). It was our first family holiday abroad and we knew that he was in such safe hands with you. From the moment we dropped him off to collecting him eight days later, we were totally relaxed knowing how well he would be looked after. Thank you for the texts that you sent us and the fantastic photos that you have emailed, it looked like he had some amazing adventures with you. Can't recommend you enough Chris, keep up the good work. Many thanks from us all xx

Christine is a remarkable person who genuinely lavishes every dog with love and care. The home from home environment provided ensures that the dogs come back relaxed and calm. I would recommend Oliver's Dog Boarding to all dog owners and we wouldn't take our dogs anywhere else!


Our 2yr old Shih-Tzu LILY has been regularly boarded at Olivers since she was a tiny puppy. She regards Oliver as her loving grandad and Chris as her dear aunt!!! The canine warmth and human care and devotion to Oliver and the dogs she looks after, never fails to amaze us. Lily loves to visit and is always calm, happy and relaxed upon her return to us. Olivers offers a rare, unique professional, caring and warm service, over and above what one might normally expect. Undoubtedly an important part of our very special doggy's life! 

Princess, Poppet &  Precious

We would like to thank Christine and Oliver for looking after Princess, Poppet and Precious so well.  We had a relaxing holiday knowing our girls were in such good hands.  As they are all getting on in years, we asked Christine to just give them a relaxing spa week.  They slept, played, slept and cuddled.  Just what they enjoy the most. We were kept up to date by text and we came home to some beautiful photos. The only problem is that Christine and Oliver get booked up so quick, we don't know when we'll get another holiday! Thank you again. XXX


Christine treats all dogs as if they're her own and as she's completely mad about her own dog Oliver this really means something special. I know that Artie is in very safe and loving hands with her. When we arrive at Oliver's, he can't wait to get out the car and always gives her a great welcome! I also really appreciate Christine's regular updates via Facebook and email when she looks after him. Artie always comes home very healthy and happy.

Tarli & Priya

Thank you Oliver for letting us come to your house with your mummy on holiday again. We love coming to stay with you, our mummy couldn't stop us running into your house and making ourselves at home straight away, before she was able to bring our food in!!! We have such a wonderful time. Ky and Stanley told us that they loved holidaying at your house, before they went to live a Rainbow Bridge. Your mummy gives us lots of cuddles and kisses, we like that a lot. We are hoping our mummy and daddy will go on holiday again soon so that we can come and stay at yours again. Thank you for sharing your house and your mummy. Love Tarli and Priya xx 

Jessie, Sebbie and Hala

As you know our housekeepers have returned from their (very long) holiday and we have returned home.  Actually we had a very good holiday too with you while they were away, but we have tried not to look too smug in case we upset them.  Thank you so much for looking after us so well, for the nice walks in the woods and by the sea and for the cuddles we enjoyed with Chris.  We are now suggesting that our housekeepers take another holiday some time so we can come to Oliver’s again.

With doggy  love

Jessie, Sebbie and Hala

PS  Our housekeepers asked us to mention how good it was to have a regular message telling them of our exploits and with some photos too.


 I would like to take this opportunity, Chris, to thank you, on behalf of Jim and I, for your outstanding care of Woody, our Jack Russell. You have looked after him over a number of years now and he thrives on the love and cuddles that you give him, as well as the wonderful long walks that he enjoys with you twice a day. As you know, he suffers from Pancreatitis which can be fatal if he eats something that he shouldn't and this is an ongoing worry for us. You are well aware of this, of course. When he is with you, we have no fear at all. We can go away knowing that he is safe, secure and happy and that his diet is being strictly monitored by your professional self. We so appreciate the photographs and the texts that you send us. You provide a safe, loving and very clean haven for all the doggies and we are delighted to recommend you wholeheartedly.


Maisie & Tess

Maisie and Tess have just returned from another lovely stay at Oliver's. Thank you Chris for looking after them so well with lots of lovely walks and cuddles! They really are looked after well in their 'home from home'. They had a great time with Oliver and their new best friend Lily.
See you again soon. x 


Holly is always so well cared for when she comes to Olivers. We can really tell that she is genuinely loved – it is a true home from home. She looks forward to staying, and that gives us so much peace of mind ourselves when we're away. Thank you!

Vinnie & Madison's 
Chris is a truly amazing lady, who looked after Madison and Vinnie our loveable rogues, with love and affection. They were really spoilt and allowed to snuggle up with her at night.
We loved the emails and photo's whilst we were away, our 7 year old daughter commented that " Madison and Vinnie were having a lovely holiday, because they were smiling in the photo"...
Thank you so much, and we look forward to our next trip away, knowing that Madison and Vinnie will be well cared for " home from home" with you.
Much love

George & Teddy's Home Dog Boarding Cornwall, 5* Doggy Hotel!

Thanks so much to George & Teddy's owners in Plymouth for the lovely customer testimonial. I really love being rated as a doggy 5* hotel! 

I was so pleased with the care that you supplied for George & Teddy whilst we went on holiday. As you were aware, I was nervous about leaving them as my usual "doggy sitter" was unavailable and also this was a 1st for Teddy who was 6 months old. As soon as we met I felt very relieved as they were relaxed and happy in your home and I could tell that you just adore doggies! I can confidently say that your service is totally superb especially compared to others who offer the same product without the standards and 24 hour care that you offer. If you were a hotel I would rate you as 5*!
It was especially lovely to be able to follow George & Ted's own holiday via Facebook and they were treated to absolutely 1st class care. They've never had so much attention and fuss and for Teddy, meeting the other dogs especially Oliver has helped him no end with his socialisation skills. 
I would, and already have recommended you to friends etc and would absolutely without hesitation book my boys in with you again for a stay. George & Teddy both had an amazing experience and thank you also for allowing George to sleep on your bed, they send you big sloppy kisses and cannot wait to come and stay again.


We left our very large and not so terribly well behaved border collie dog with Christine for four months while we were on an extended trip abroad. We couldn't have left him in better hands. Not only is Christine completely professional when it comes to dog care but she is completely dog nutty! Mac was thoroughly spoilt at Oliver's, he was so at home I did worry he would not want to come home with us. Christine looked after Mac beautifully keeping him healthy, groomed and even taught him some manners! Christine also kept us informed on Mac's well being ,sending photos and even was happy to do the same to our daughter in Canada who was missing Mac too. We are happy to recommend Oliver's dog boarding, we will certainly be using it every time we need a home from home for Mac. Mac did come home happily with us but I'm sure he looked longingly back at Oliver's as we drove away!

Ludo - a Scottish Deerhound

Ludo is a big dog, he stands 3ft at the shoulder and can appear a bit intimidating at first, many boarders are unwilling to accept large dogs so we were very relieved to find that Oliver's were prepared to take him on. We had a big holiday coming up, nearly 4 weeks so we thought it best for Oliver's to have him for a weekend to see if they all got on. It was perfect, Ludo had a whale of a time with walks, meeting other dogs and getting lots of attention so we were very relieved that it went so well. We went on our holiday confident that Ludo would probably get better looked after than he does at home. Our holiday went well as did Ludo's too. The important thing for us is knowing that Ludo is properly and professionally looked after so that our concerns for his welfare are minimal. You could not find a better dog Boarder's than Oliver's. Thank you, Andrew and Karen, Cornwall



Just want to say Thank You for looking after Milo again.  We are always happy to leave Milo with you. We were on our holidays in Cornwall from Yorkshire and Milo stopped overnight with Oliver's. This meant we could go out and celebrate my partner's birthday. When we picked him up he was relaxed and looked lovely! Would not hesitate leaving Milo again with you Oliver’s. Thanks once again x

Milo's Mum and Dad, Yorkshire



I would like to thank Oliver's for having my little puppy Zippy for the day. She was so small but I had no worries at all ( I had left my Bramble with Oliver’s many times) She was so happy and contented on my return. Chris took some fantastic photographs of her with Oliver to prove that. If you are looking for a home from home for your pet while you are away, you will not find a better place anywhere. Don't just take my word of recommendation, ask anyone that has boarded their dog there!

Sandra Beeke Dobwalls, Cornwall



With Dougal now in his senior years and needing the comforts of home more than ever, we could not face leaving him in kennels again for our occasional holiday abroad without him but where to go? Stumbling across 'Olivers' particularly comprehensive website and reading his story seemed too good to be true but a visit was arranged and we knew as soon as we arrived that this was the 'oasis' that Dougal needed. Oliver's were absolutely focused on making Dougal welcome and part of the household and Oliver was a complete charmer too. With Chris’s professional approach to understanding the needs and limitations of their 'guests' (especially the more senior ones) we were completely relieved that our particular 'best dog in the world' would be in good hands. We went on our holiday and Dougal went on his willingly with a wagging tail and no 'flat ears of doom' (a labrador thing!). Chrissie kept us up to date with regular newsletters and photos . After a week away, we collected a bright, happy dog who now expects more of the same calibre of treatment if we do have to leave him behind again. We definitely know where to come next time.

Stu & Fiona, Cornwall


Thanks to Chris and of course Oliver, for making Barney’s first home board experience such a good one. As for home boarding Chris welcomed Barney with open arms, he had some fantastic walks and was so well cared for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Oliver’s home boarding services to anyone. Chris really knows Barney and he loved his cuddles whilst with her.

Sarah, Cornwall


Izzie's & Bow's Holiday!

Thank you to Chris and of course Oliver for opening up your home to our two girly's. I am so glad that we found Oliver's, no where else would I have been happy leaving them for our 3 week holiday!! Chris has been so wonderful and they had mini sleepover's with them before we left. We had regular updates via email and facebook, I knew the girls were having a ball, the kids got to see pictures of what they were up to and that was so nice to know they where having a holiday too. I cannot recommend Oliver's enough you deserve a medal, we would only ever use you, no one else would compare to the home from home you provide. Thank you once again, till next time. Vicky xxx

Buddy's Second Home at Oliver's

Buddy is our handsome 7 month old Jackadoodle puppy. We've had him from 8 weeks old and Oliver's were happy to let him visit often so that he could socialise with as many dogs as possible. Really important for a pup. Buddy has also had a few day stays at Oliver's, and has had a whale of a time. He's made new friends and played until he's literally dropped! Buddy is totally the 7th member of our family, and if I couldn't leave him at Oliver's, I wouldn't leave him anywhere. I know 100% that he's being just as well cared for and loved as he is at home, and can completely enjoy whatever we are doing, secure in the knowledge that our little pooch is being spoilt rotten!

Jo Hoskin Liskeard, Cornwall



We were holidaying in Cornwall, and booked our 5 year old Labrador, Nash into Oliver's doggy day care after reading the website and being comfortable with leaving him at Oliver's. We dropped him off and Nash and Oliver got on straight away and Oliver's were brilliant. So genuine, with so much advice to freely give. Chris really loves what she does and you can tell. We were instantly at ease with the friendliness and went on our way. We phoned a few hours later to see how he was getting on, and he had made another friend! When we picked him up, he had been de-fluffed and manicured to perfection and he was so so happy. We are thrilled to bits with the care he received and the guidance/advice Oliver's provided to us regarding his poorly hips. We will definitely be using Oliver's again should we be holidaying In the area again. Chris has a true passion for her work and loves all dogs unconditionally. Any dog (or any animal!) will be in safe hands with Oliver's.

Tilley's Doggy Day Care

Tilley is mine and my daughter’s lovely Jack Russell puppy and we have had her since she was 8 weeks old. She is only 14 weeks old now. I was very excited when I saw Oliver’s website as it looked a perfect home from home for our puppy. I was able to take Tilley out and visit Oliver’s and Christine was warm and welcoming and clearly loves dogs. I have no worries about leaving Tilley with Oliver’s while I go to work. It’s a warm home from home environment. I would recommend Oliver’s to anyone without hesitation.



Holly's Vacation

All dog owners are faced with the problem of finding a suitable home for their dogs when they are away. Well my search is over. I cannot imagine a more perfect place to take my much loved Labrador than Oliver’s in Dobwalls. It's a true home from home for dogs. They have the run of the house and are treated as members of the family. There are always other dogs there, including Chris’s own delightful Labrador Oliver. They are exercised twice a day, play lots of games and fed well. Visiting dogs are treated with all the care and kindness that their owners would lavish on them. I cannot speak too highly of the service that Oliver’s offer. My Labrador will be a regular visitor. Hugh Scully.

Precious Meesha

While we were planning our 3-week holiday to South Africa I was concerned at who would look after our cross 13 yr 6 month year old spaniel/lab dog. I did not want to board her again in a normal kennels as she had been very unhappy previously. I was recoommended by a friend to Olivers. I visited the home and was immediately put at ease with the manner and expertise in dealing with all breeds of dogs. Meesha took to Chris very well. I was quite tearfull in leaving Meesha but Chris was so good in sending photos, emails etc and keeping us up-to-date on her progress it did help to alleviate the sadness. On our return we came back to a happy, contented dog who I think would have been quite happy to stay longer. We would have no qualms at all of returning to board Meesha with Oliver’s again and I thank her immensely for her care and concern over our much loved Meesha.

Stanley, day boarder at Olivers

While we were on holiday in Cornwall this year, we wanted our rather large dog Stanley who is a Great Dane cross looked after for the day. We were recommended to Olivers and nothing was too much trouble. Not only did we enjoy a lovely day out together, but we came back to a lovely sweet smelling pooch, who had been lovingly looked after in a very comfortable home environment. We were so lucky to have found you. Thank you so much. We highly reccommend you.

Doggy Day Care for Sky and Ginny

We are Sky and Ginny and want to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Olivers Boarding. We only stayed in the daytime, but had great fun with new doggy friends to meet, and lots of love and cuddles. We want to say a big thank you to Chris for making our time away from mummy and daddy so pleasant and enjoyable.

Sky and Ginny's Mum and Dad


Home from home for Artie

Thank you so much for giving Artie so much love and care. Olivers really is a home from home. We don't think Artie wanted to come home he was having so much fun!

Ryan family, Penryn


Thank you so much for looking after Edgar for us this week. He's obviously had an absolutely fab time and been thoroughly spoilt and made to feel completely at home!! It makes such a difference knowing he's being well looked after and having the fun and exercise he needs. I'm sure he would have liked to stay longer - next time perhaps!

Philippa Dickson, Winchester


Honey Misses You!

Honey's Dog Boarding Holiday Thanks for the pics and a great big thank you from Honey and the Family. She would love to come back (so would I :-)). She is having withdrawal symptoms! Once again thanks for the pics and for having her.

Ryan, Peter, Dianne and Honey, Liskeard



We are always so glad to bring Holly to you because we know how happy she is when she's there. We've been able to relax on holiday knowing that Holly is having so much fun, and it's lovely to get the photos while we are away! We've tried other dog boarding places but know Holly is happy with you. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you because you love Holly as much as we do. Thank you again!

Adrian, Penryn


Mad Daisy

Chris has helped us through good times and bad , extremely friendly, proffesional service, never worried about Daisy when she is with you, and Daisy definately loves coming to you, many thanks for all you have done for us.

James and Rebecca Ellis, Bodmin


Our three Yorkshire Terriers came for a holiday!

Our three Yorkshire Terriers, Pollyanna, Fleur and Little Billy Boy, aged 10, 6 and 5 had never been away from us. We had endeavoured to find a home-from-home environment for them, without success. However, we are now delighted that in our absence, Christine gives them love and every care for their individual needs. She is so professional, with her experience, amazing caring attitude and great fondness and understanding of dogs. She is completely suited to her occupation, and we would have no hesitation in recommending Oliver’s to future clients. We are now planning a holiday abroad, happy in the knowledge that our Dear Companions are being given all the love and care in the world.

Marianne. Kingsbridge, Devon


A very content and happy Patchy and family!!

We have just returned from two fantastic weeks in Turkey and are over the moon with the care and love our gorgeous Patchy had with you. He is much more confident around other dogs and is very happy and content. I thought we would have to settle Patchy back into our routine, this has not been the case he has settled in the same as always. This was a big step to leave Patchy for such a long time yet you reassured me and have not let us down. It was lovely for us to receive your text letting us know how Patchy was whilst in Turkey, our boys were thrilled! I am over the moon how thoughtful and caring you have been to Patchy and would not hesitate to recommend you, you certainly go that step further.

I would not have anybody else care for our dog other than you.  The photos you have sent us of Patchy whilst we were away show what a great time he had with you. A huge THANK YOU Chris,

From Carolyn and family xx Liskeard


Oscar and Bailey

Hi Chris and Oliver. Oscar and Bailey would love to say a huge thank you for looking after them in Doggy Day Care and for sending the photos showing just how much fun they had. It was lovely to meet you and you so obviously love dogs and want to treat them as one of their own rather than as a business. They had obviously been cared for as a member of the family and treated with love and affection and if we are ever in Cornwall again we will be looking you up for them to come and stay for the day again! I don't think they even noticed we weren't around for the day and Bailey obviously found a pal in Oliver! Thanks a million Annika, Peter and of course Oscar and Bailey themselves xx

Annika and Peter


Tess and Maisie

Our 2 Tibetan Terriers, Tess and 'crazy' Maisie, were really well looked after by Chris. They have never stayed in kennels and really appreciated the comforts of home boarding. It was great for them to have Oliver and other dogs to play with. It was good to know that they were in a home from home environment....very pampered pooches!! Many thanks for your care and kindness. Nikki & Nial, Falmouth


Picked up Molly today, having stayed for 5 days. She loved every minute of it, came back very happy and feeling very clean. She will be visiting again if we go away. Thank you to you both for all the care you give....

Ally and Rick, Liskeard


WIlliam Lhasa

William thanks Chris for taking care of him during his stay - from the photos he obviously enjoyed himself very much and was taken care of - I will have no hesitation in leaving William with Chris in the future.

A very happy Rotti - Woody

I would like to give Christine and Oliver all my thanks for looking after Woody for a few days and would just like to let everyone know that you will never find another person and one dog that love your dog as much as you do. It was lovely to leave him in such safe hands and to anyone who is viewing this site looking for dog care you will not need to look any further as you cant get any better.

Victoria Ellacott, Liskeard


Dear Chris  thank you so much for caring for our Cavalier KC, Oddy. A first class service from first contact to the collection of Oddy. Warm, friendly, safe and clean environment for the dog. The walk you took him on was clearly enjoyable as he was totally relaxed when he got home. I would heartily recommend your service to anyone or like us, on holiday and requires day care for their dog. Thank you so much.

Helen Morrison


Thank you for taking such good care of Samson while we were away. He obviously had a fantastic time and the photos are brilliant. We will have no hesitation in leaving him in your care in the future and will recommend you to our friends.

Sharon and Andrew Birnie.

Thanks again for the love and care that was lavished on our dogs, we know we can leave them with you and feel relaxed that they couldn't be in better care. You are not only a true professional but a true dog lover. From two very happy customers Jane and Mike Bobby Dazzler

Scrappy the Patterdale, West Looe, Cornwall

Hi, I am Scrappy and I am 2 years old. I want to tell you about my best friend Oliver. He lives with a  lovely human called Chris.  I go to see Oliver when my human is out of the house for a long time or if she goes on holiday. Sometimes I just have a sleepover for one night. Oliver and his human taught me to swim and now if I see water I just cant stay away! I never miss my humans when I stay with Oliver because I have such a lovely time :)

Alison Pugh - devoted human of Scrappy Doo

Molly and Albert

I collected Molly and Albert this morning from their weeks stay with Chris. They were thoroughly spoilt and had Chris wound round their paws - sleeping on her bed. Albert enjoyed a game of tug with Oliver while Molly looked on. I shall certainly be recommending Oliver’s to my friends. Hope to see you in the future.




“Dear Christine Karen, Mark, Daniel and of course Bodie dog, would like to thank you so much for having Bodie for the day, pampering him and looking after him, whilst the humans had a day out at the Eden Project. Your lovely home became Bodie's home for the day and we could relax and enjoy ourselves without worrying about him. We found you on the internet whilst staying at a holiday cottage nearby and you invited us round to see you before leaving Bodie in your care.

For anyone else reading this if you are on holiday book your dog in and go and enjoy yourself.

Bodie and the Garners from Lancaster”.

Mabel & Patsy

“Dear Christine, Thanks so much for looking after our two cockers, Mabel and Patsy. Your loving and professional environment provided them with a fantastic surrogate home whilst we were on holiday in Cornwall. The flexibility and attention to detail in the care that you provided was splendid especially as Pasty is an older, blind dog with special requirements.

We are delighted to have found such a loving ‘home from home’ for our dogs”.

Mrs J James


“Barclay our 7th month old Cocker is a bit of a handful to say the least, but clearly loved his little weekend stay at Oliver’s. He came back to us calm and very happy which to me indicates he has had a great time! Thanks so much for looking after him and will defo be in touch next time we are down.

Fantastic service & environment and would recommend to anyone!

Lee & Sophie from Oxford”.



Hi Christine just to say a huge thanks for looking after Harvey this weekend, looking at the photos you kindly sent we can tell he had a great time. We shall certainly be asking if Harvey can visit again when we are next in Cornwall. Lovely to meet you and hope to see you soon. thanks Dave and Marie

Misty's Holiday

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Christine for the way she looked after Misty so well. She came back very happy, healthy and obviously very well looked after. She had a great time socialising with all the other dogs. It gave us great peace of mind so we could also enjoy our holiday - knowing Misty was also having a great time. Thank you very much.

George, Newfoundland's Dog Boarding at Oliver's

Thank you so much for sending gorgeous pictures of George and all the dogs - and those of you taking them out for walks were great too. We can’t  thank you enough for looking after George - we know he has such a lovely time with you and we really appreciate it. Thank you so much for looking after George so well.

Audrey, Padstow, Cornwall


Ben & Holly

Having found Oliver's Dog Boarding on the web we were delighted to find Oliver's and leave our puppy Ben with Chris. We didn't worry as Chris turned out to be one of the nicest caring persons we know, and she loves our Ben and all the other dogs that she looks after very much. We now have two dogs the other being Holly who was only 3 months when she first went to stay with Chris, and loved playing with Oliver and all the other dogs in Oliver’s care at that time which boosted her confidence no end. We can highly recommend Oliver’s.  Chris really caresfor all the dogs large or small and we can’t praise her enough. 

June & John, St Austell



We would like to thank Chris and of course, Oliver, for outstanding boarding care for our 6 month old shitzu, Lily. We all know to leave our loved one with someone else for the first time, is a difficult and heart rendering task, but we have been so impressed with her professional and over and above commitment, in providing a safe, happy and loving environment for ours and all doggies that pass through her welcoming door. Regular reassuring texts, with a love that can be felt even from afar, put our minds at rest when away. We know that Lily was beautifully cared for in a warm, loving home –she had a fantastic social stop –over with Oliver and friends, as well as constant human cuddles and care from Chris! We have no qualms about leaving Lily at Olivers during our summer holiday for a much longer stay, because we know she will be in the best “doggy second home” in the world ! Patience, professionalism, a sense of humour and absolute love, are the amazing ingredients of Oliver’s Boarding Services.( Lily agrees with everything we’ve said !)” Tom, Cheryl, Anya and Freya Saddler (Looe) Thank you! x



Thank you very much Chris & Oliver for looking after Mylo for the week. We could tell that he had a super time with you and the other dogs, in fact he seemed quite reluctant to come home! The photos of his antics were an added bonus and it was a really nice touch to send us a message too while we were away to let us know how he was getting on! We're very happy to have found somewhere where the owner takes pride in what they do and delivers a high quality of care to all the dogs in their charge. We wouldn't hesitate to use Oliver's again when we go away in the future and I know Mylo would agree!! Many thanks again.

Charly K-J,


Columbo & Poppy

Oliver's were really friendly on arrival and showed instant warmth and welcome for our doggy friends who were staying for two days. On the first night we received a text to let us know everything was ok and some photos were sent to us to show they were having a good time. We also received the most lovely smelling dogs on their return!! Reasonably priced, I wouldn't hesitate to use again when down in Cornwall.

Lyndsey, Nottingham



We left our 8-month-old Maltese/Shih-Tzu, Loveday with Chris for 3 weeks while we took a family holiday to Florida. The love and respect that Chris shares for dogs is perceptible. I would not want to leave my baby with anybody else. I would highly recommend Oliver’s to anybody looking for doggy day care or boarding. From a very happy customer.

Becci Cornelius



Chris looked after our old lab William for the first time this weekend. we could not have left William unless we knew he would be cared for in the same way as we do. Chris excelled our expectations and even slept downstairs as our old boy could not make it up the stairs. We only have a few weeks left with our darling boy, but we know that one of those weekends was the happiest of his life thanks to Oliver’s. x




We have used Olivers on several occasions and been delighted with how well Kai is cared for and loved by Chris as if he was her own. Kai is always very happy to be left and loves playing with the other dogs and I really feel when i drop Kai off it is like home from home. Thank you so much and we will see you at Christmas. Kerry, Padstow, Cornwall

Sam and Jamie

We left Sam and Jamie with Chris and Oliver for two weeks while we were abroad. It was only the second time they had been away from home without us. Jamie is a rescue dog and we would not like to leave him in traditional kennels. When we came to collect them, we could see that both dogs were relaxed and completely at home with Oliver's as they cuddled up on the settee with Chris while we had a cup of tea. They very soon settled in back at home and Jamie looked much better for the 'Makeover' he had while away. Chris kindly sent us some photo's of the dogs 'on holiday' which was great to see. A good experience for the dogs and we would definitely take them back to stay with Oliver again. Chris & Lesley



Just want say thank you all for looking after our Lab Milo. From the very first contact with Chris via email I was happy for Milo to stop with you. You answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. We travelled down to Cornwall from Yorkshire with Milo. The morning Milo was due to be dropped off. On his walk he decided to roll in a rotten mackerel on the beach. He smelt disgusting. We tried to clean him off the best we could but he still stunk! I texted Chris in a panic and she said not to worry and drop him off and would give him a bath. Milo ran in straight away and was enjoying his cuddles. The other dogs that were there were so calm. So that was a good sign. All the worries I had about leaving Milo went away. We were assured that Milo would be in safe hands and we got to enjoy a day out to celebrate my 40th birthday! We were sent updates by texts and pictures off Milo and the dogs having fun. His picture is on Facebook and he is getting lots off likes! Hehe x On picking Milo up the first thing I noticed was that he smelt and looked lovely after his wash. Thanks for recommending that dog cologne it lasts for ages! If your dog likes to get smelly would def buy it! We will be using your services again next year when we are back in Cornwall. Thank you all once again! Marilyn,Jamie and Milo xxx

Thankyou so much for looking after Solo. He had a amazing time! I could tell he had been well looked after when he came home as he wasnt frantic to see me, but was snoring his head off all happy and content. Smelling beautifull and looking so shiny and even a little less weight! After all his lovely walks and lots of playing with the lovely other dogs that he had made good friends with. Thankyou so much for the lovely photos, he looked like he had a whale of a time on the beach. Especially the one with a sand covered face, he looked like he had been doing his favourite thing and had a good dig in the sand. Im so pleased i found you, as i will all ways know that there is somewhere solo can stay, and i know he will get all the care and love in the world to make him feel more at home. He misses you and his friends! Thankyou so much for looking after him so well for me. x

Solo and Emma



Our 3 dogs stayed with Olivers for three days in December, they were treated like royalty, loved, fed and spoilt Had a hard time getting them away so special were they made to feel.




Thank you for all the lovely photographs you took of George when he was boarding with you at Christmas as we know he had a lovely time. We went away without any worries about George at all because we know he is in such good hands and cannot thank you enough for looking after him so well. Thank goodness we found out about you!

George's Mum & Dad, Padstow, Cornwall



Our spaniel Izzie is five years old and we've had her from 8 weeks - like first time parents we long since decided we would not let her go to kennels - having said that we knew there would be times when we would need to find somewhere/someone and we entrusted her to Oliver's and we have not been disappointed - whilst Iz can't speak to us, we know her and can judge from the photos that we are sent and how she responds to all at Oliver's that she is happy and well loved there, and we are very grateful for that - thanks, Steve, Sue, Laura and Izzie

Izzie's Dad



Amber is a vey special to us and leaving her with Christine was home from home Amber went in and sat straight on her bed and so did Oliver lovely dog you have there , she kissed Christine straight away I could not have put Amber in better hands so if you want your doggy to be in safe hands this is the place to go and have fun and lots of cuddles and to have peace of mind that they are being well looked after I would leave her time and time again in your lovely kind hands lots of heart and love thanks once again from me & amber xxx

Maisie & Tess

Maisie & Tess always enjoy their stay at Oliver's with Chris and not forgetting Oliver. It is great to know that they are always well looked after and made to feel part of the family. It really is a 'home from home' where dogs are made to feel special. There is always the bonus of a trip to the beach with Oliver, Maisie and Tess always enjoy these outings, proudly wearing their Oliver's jackets, definitely a lovely doggy holiday!

Nikki MacDougall


Ky & Stanley

Thank you so much for caring for my two boys Ky and Stanley. The best thing ever was being able to collect them BOTH as Stanley had been diagnosed with an aggresive tumour 2 weeks prior to their holiday. We were unsure he would even go on his holiday! Well, we were away for 18 days and Stanley fooled us all :) He was so well loved and spoilt at Oliver's he came home having maintained his weight and happy. He had a check up at the vet, who was shocked he was still with us. I can't thank Oliver's enough. xxx

Tina, Cornwall

Herbie & Jackson

My dogs, Herbie & Jackson always go with me and I have never had a holiday without them. When my company sent me on a training course to London my immediate thought was where would my beloved dogs go. I spoke to Oliver's and Chris was able to offer boarding for the period I was away. I tried not to get anxious or upset the morning I was leaving as I did not want to distress the dogs in any way. I need not have worried, Herbie the quieter of the two was immediately reassured and cuddled. During my trip Oliver's regularly updated me, sent photos and even allowed them their usual sleeping arrangement of sharing the double bed! Chris has a special quality rarely found and I would not leave my dogs with anyone else. Congratulations to you and long may you provide such a wonderful service to our beloved pets.

Ros Sandercock, Bodmin, Cornwall


Chris, thank you so much for taking such good care of Lily for almost 3 weeks. All the photos reassured me that she was having a great time and being well cared for. It's obvious that you love dogs very much. Thank you again. Peter & Vanda



Hi Chris

Firstly let me thank you for having Poppie at short notice & looking after her the way you did.

The photos you sent us were great , they are a very happy bunch of pooches!

I would like to say that Christine is a very caring & loving person who provides an excellent home from home service which we would and will recommend to anyone who is looking for a perfect home for your dog. Our dog is seventeen years old.  We couldn’t have wished for better.

You are a caring and compassionate person and we wish you well.

Carol & Bob

PS Poppie rates you 5 *
