Home Boarding and Dog Walking

Home Boarding and Dog Walking

20150713_146At Mannerly Mutts we strive to offer your dogs an environment which is much more like his or her  home. Their stay will be tailor-made to replicate their normal routine. So many of us worry about leaving our dogs in boarding kennels, they may be safe but these facilities often lack the opportunity to provide home comforts and the mental and physical stimulation your dog normally receives . We also worry about leaving our dogs in a sterile kennel environment. You can rest assured that with us your dog will be having  as good a time as you.

Our Dog Walking and Home Boarding services are provided by Steve and Pip Tolley.

Steve is a retired police officer who lives on a small holding near Cleobury Mortimer with his wife, Philippa,  horse, 2 dogs and 2 cats. While with the police Steve spent 4 years working as a Mounted Police Officer and 5 years as a Dog Handler. Steve is one of those special ex police officers that really does empathise with all animals and has a natural insight into the way they think.


Steve and Pip’s own dogs are Brian who is a rescue dog from the Dogs Trust and Rio a German Shepherd.
