I always pick up a happy relaxed dog from DDI !

I was so anxious and worried about leaving our puppy for two weeks last summer. I couldn't sleep because I was miserable at the thought of him being alone in kennels. Then I met with Gail and Phil - what an incredible piece of luck ! DDI has become a real home from home for our boy now. How do I know ? Whenever I take him there, he runs down the path to the house, wagging his tail excitedly. He greets Gail and Phil as long lost mates AND I always pick up a happy and relaxed dog who settles back home with us immediately, without any problems at all. I could say more about how helpful, kind and caring Gail and Phil are and what brilliant 'doggy' people they are, but my own dog's response to them is probably the best recommendation they could get. It is certainly the thing that reassures me the most. I always go to Gail and Phil when I need someone to look after my precious boy because I know that he doesn't just get his basic needs met, but he also becomes part of a family where he gets cuddles, attention, play time and walks. DDI is really excellent and exactly what I want for my dog !
