Since 2013, Cuddles-A -Plenty has been established as a home based pet sitting service. In 2016, we expanded into a doggy daycare centre and it is a dream come true!

We still maintain those home values and services such as home visits, dog walks and home boarding, only now we also have a retail shop offering free local delivery, a pet taxi service and lots of room for dogs to play in our new day care centre. The centre has different play areas so dogs can remain in their favourite friendship groups without feeling under pressure to mix with all the different dogs. Puppies have their own dedicated area.


Who We Are

An introduction from the founder – Mrs Dionne Bacon

We are a family run business who have a lifelong love of animals and lots of experience looking after a variety of our furry friends.

Over the years, our family has included many loved ones, from the smallest (tropical fish) to the largest (horse) with all sorts in-between – Hamsters, Guinea Pigs, Rabbits, Chinchillas, Cats, a Gecko, a Pony & of course, Dogs!

In addition to the day care centre, we can offer a pop in service for all of your pet’s, companionship for those home alone, feeding and of course dog walking.

Dogs are welcome to board with us whenever you go away and will be treated as one of the family, but places for this are very limited, so please book in early. 

Regular bookings are welcome as are bookings on a more ad hoc basis.
