Sue Kent


I’m Sue and I provide a dog home boarding service in Central Manchester including Hulme, Ordsall, Bradford, Beswick, Ancoats, Spinningfields and the surrounding areas.

At Digs for Dogs, we know from experience that traditional kennels can be a daunting and stressful place for many animals. We provide dog owners with the perfect alternative to kennels so you can be confident that your four-legged friend will receive the same amount of love and attention that they are used to at home.

With our Dog Home Boarding service, we expertly match your dog with one of our loving pet sitters to give you complete peace of mind that your pet is cared for whilst you’re away.

Me and my dogs

I know first-hand how important your four-legged friends are to your family. I got Sam, our mad Cocker Spaniel, nearly 11 years ago as my son was scared of dogs and I wanted him to benefit from the unconditional love and great fun that comes with dog ownership. It was the best thing I could have done as not only did it cure his fear –  they became best friends.

My Digs for Dogs Business

I spent 28 years in the automotive industry working for global brands including Ford Motor Company, Jaguar,  Land Rover and  MG Motor. I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world with my job but I eventually decided it was time for a complete change of career and lifestyle.

I was initially introduced to Digs for Dogs as a customer and seeing the love and care they put into looking my own dog, I knew it was a company I would like to be a part of, so when the opportunity to run the franchise in Manchester came along, I grabbed it.

My home boarding team

As a dog owner myself, I understand how difficult it can be to find the right care for your precious pooch while you are away.

Digs for Dogs is a great alternative to kennels and the dogs are always truly loved and cared for. I have a fantastic team of carefully chosen loving home boarding families who provide a one to one home from home environment.

I do everything  I can to find out about your dog’s individual needs to ensure I match them with the perfect host family for them – and I can guarantee that your dog will be spoilt rotten!

We’re always on the lookout for people to become a home boarder and provide a loving home to one of our dogs in Central Manchester including Hulme, Ordsall, Bradford, Beswick, Ancoats, Spinningfields and the surrounding areas.

Please give me a call on 07753 674681 and I’ll get straight to work.

Reviews about Sue Kent

Digs for Dogs provide a fantastic service

Digs for Dogs provide a fantastic service

Would like to say how amazing Sue at Digs for dogs has been with our beloved family dog, Buster. We have asked Sue twice in the past 12 months to find Buster a holiday home to stay and both times we have been more than happy with the lovely people she has found for Buster, he has enjoyed both his stays a great deal! I have to say Buster is not just a dog to us, he is a massive part of our family and I do treat him like my other child  haha, so when I leave him I'm very nervous to know how he settles in. Well all I can say is Sue makes me feel completely at ease with all the updates, photos and videos we get of Buster while we are away on holiday, I can't recommend her enough! Digs for Dogs provide a fantastic service and I will continue to use them for the future, thank you.

This service exceeds the alternatives

This service exceeds the alternatives

This service exceeds the alternatives. Maisie our Boston Terrier is getting on in years and is nearly blind but as she was placed with a suitable family and treated as she is at home. She came back to us with little sign of stress. This is something that she had displayed previously after being left behind while the family were abroad. Sue really got to know us and Maisie so was able to place her with the right people. The updates we received while away were eagerly anticipated by our children and gave us all peace of mind. Well done to everyone involved

Host Profiles...

Brendan & Sue

Brendan & Sue

Brendan and Sue are recently retired and miss the companionship offered by dogs.  Previously they had Jack Russells (2 plus 5 puppies!) but they love all sorts of breeds.  They often go for long walks in the local area, along Slattocks Canal, up to Tandle Hill and around Hollingworth Lake so your dog will get lots of fresh air but for those more lazy days your dog will love their large, secure garden, perfect for the odd game of fetch.  Allowed in all the rooms downstairs your dog will get lots of love and attention from Brendan, Sue and family

Jean & Johnny

Jean & Johnny

Jean and Johnny are experienced dog owners having had staffies and Yorkshire terriers previously.  Jean has recently retired and they’re both looking forward to having an excuse to take more exercise and enjoy walking your dog.  Welcome everywhere except the bedrooms your dog will love the safe, secure back garden and long walks in the local park.

Kelly and Adam

Kelly and Adam

Kelly and Adam grew up around dogs and have experience of all sorts of different breeds.  Charlie, their 7 year old son, is desperate for a dog of his own so your dog will be covered in hugs and kisses!  As a family they love the company you can only get from a dog and they appreciate each dog’s individual character and quirks!

Your dog will be welcome throughout the house and will be totally safe in their secure back garden.  The family live 150 yards from Bowlee Park so lots of exercise and long walks literally on the doorstep.
