Me and my dogs
Dogs have always been a huge part of my life. I’ve always been an animal lover and from being a child I had rabbits, a dog and a horse. Since then, dogs have always been a huge part of my life.
My Digs for Dogs Business
I’d been a Primary School teacher for 16 years, eventually specialising in Special Educational Needs. However, my dream was always to work with dogs and as a people person, others who love dogs as much as I do. I discovered Digs for Dogs and the rest is history – I’ve finally found my dream job providing happy holiday homes for dogs in Skelmersdale, Ashton-in-Makerfield and it’s neighboring towns.
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 Skelmersdale, Ashton in Makerfield, Lathom, Billinge, Crawford, Crank, Orrell, Rainford, Up Holland, Roby Mill and the surrounding areas.

Vinnie stayed with Digs for Dogs Wigan for a week while we were on our honeymoon. He was only 10 months old and we’d never left him before, so I was understandably anxious. As soon as Lisa arrived to pick him up I was reassured and I knew he was being left in safe hands. The Pet Schedule is so detailed and included everything there was to know about our cheeky puppy. Within a couple of hours of arriving at Janet’s we received photos from Lisa of him eating his biscuit and covering Janet with kisses. By all accounts, they were the perfect match – Lisa had done a brilliant job of matching them. We received photos and updates throughout the week and we will definitely use Digs for Dogs for future holidays. Vinnie is a whippet and loves company and Digs for Dogs is a great solution for holiday cover because he would not do well in kennels. So thank you very much for looking after our boy!
Couldn’t recommend Digs for Dogs enough, our fur baby went on holiday to a lovely home where she was cared for and given lots of love like she would do at home. Plenty of walks, extra treats and plenty of TLC. It really is peace of mind to know that your smallest family members are being so well looked after, so much that Marlie just breezed back into the house like we hadn’t been apart. This was our first time with Digs for Dogs and we really didn’t need to worry, it was just as reassuring as leaving her with family.
Absolutely love Digs for Dogs! I was so nervous to send my little puggle somewhere whilst we were away, but I couldn't be more impressed, I had regular updates and pictures putting my mind at ease! Now our baby's just come home from his holidays with a waggy tail and happy face! Thank you Digs for Dogs, Chase can't wait for his next holiday!!
