OK lads, who’s going to test the water temperature today?
First encounters of the doggy kind
There’s nothing like cooling off in the lake on a hot summers day.
This is the life. Stretched out catching a few rays before lunch.
We are so popular they are queuing up at the front gate!

A wonderful two weeks
Becky seemed to have had a wonderful two weeks with Josie and Sean and made lots of doggy friends. She soon learned how to swim in the lake and absolutely loved it. We would certainly recommend Doggy Holidays to our friends and thank you Josie & Sean for looking after her so well.

Our dog Henri, a Fox Terrier, had a great holiday and it was lovely to see him having fun and swimming with his new friends in the email updates with photos from Josie. I am sure he is looking forward to his next visit, as we are.
Thank You For Peace Of Mind
Thank you for taking care of Chummers over the weekend, I think he had a lovely time , he is already missing the other dogs ....I can tell !!
You were recommended to me by a friend and she also loves the fact that the dogs are so well taken care of .
We could go away with peace of mind and also quite exc...
Bobby and Cadi had a lovely time again. I don't think Bobby likes coming home after his holiday. Your photos of Cadi swimming are great as she hardly puts a paw in the water at home. Bobby is looking forward to his next holiday. Thank you very much for making them both happy and saving us a guilt trip for not having...
A doggy delight
We travel a lot on business and our aged cocker spaniel, Thea, could not be happier than when she is with Josie and Sean. Not sure she really wants to come home when we collect her as she has so much fun with them and all the other dogs. Despite her thirteen years she runs, swims and walks with the best of them....

Perfect place for dogs
Just collected our dog, Lulu, from Josie. She has been very happy there while we were away, Josie e-mailed photos of Lu enjoying herself, which made us feel very confident she was being looked after like one of the family.. Will definately be leaving her again soon.
Our dogs have been totally happy
After searching for quite some time for a reliable kennels for our two rescue dogs, josie was recomended to us. I am so glad she was!! Our dogs have been totally happy there and the pictures.
Josie sent to me of them confirmed this, and put my mind at rest. They will continue to go on holiday there! for as lon...
Both in lovely condition and tired
Another thank you to Josie for looking after Jed and CJ - neither wanted to leave (this is becoming embarrassing, honestly we do look after them properly!) and both in lovely condition and tired as before - big thank you
Definitely a doggy holiday
With many thanks to Josie and Shaun for looking after our dogs Shydi & Sigma, they had a fab time as Shydi didn't want to come home, when they did they both looked a bit lost and Shydi had a face on her with dropping lips. I think you run a really lovely place, caring for all the dogs and their needs, including ...
A beautiful home from home for your dog
We travel a lot and love our Airedale to bits,
Josie and Sean offer the most perfect solution we could have ever imagined. Phoebe goes there willingly (not always the case with previous carers) and comes home happy and relaxed. It is the perfect environment to leave your beloved pooch with and the kindest love...
She really is treated like one of the family
I could not recommend Sean and Josie high enough, they are just amazing with Gabi when ever she goes to stay, in fact so amazing that she doesn't like coming home :) She really is treated like one of the family and that's what we liked so much.
He had a great time!
We were anxious leaving Scruffy, our ten year old Border Terrier, in a new environment. We needn't have worried, he had a great time! Lots of new friends in great surroundings.
Thank you for your kindness, Josie. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Le Chene Vert to anyone !

A wonderful Environment
Josie seems to genuinely care about all of the dogs she looks after. Our Husky cross Dexter seemed to have a brilliant time there, lots of socialisation with other dogs and very well cared for. It was also comforting to be updated regularly with photo's showing him enjoying himself. I would have no problem in recomm...
Long term stay
We left our boys with Josie for a long term stay while we were abroad. Lovely caring environment. I am not sure they wanted to come home! We felt reassured and the boys obviously had a good time. We will definitely ask Josie to care for the boys and our new addition next time we go away.
Great stays already for Elsa
Great stays already for Elsa ! If there is a place where I can leave her without any doubt it's at Doggy Holidays !
Poppy loves her holidays at Le Thiat
Poppy loves her holidays at Le Thiat. And for us it is so great that we can relax knowing she is happy, safe and well cared for.
Thank you SO MUCH for looking after the girls so well
Just want to say again, thank you SO MUCH for looking after the girls so well. The experience of being away from me and home has been good for them and they've obviously had a great time with you.
Home from home TLC
If you're ever in France and need a dog sitting service, try this one out! Home from home TLC, a lake on site, long walks in the countryside when required and use of the furniture for chilling out! The holidaymakers always seem so happy when we FaceTime, so Josie must doing something right!
