homepageTop Dog Sitters moved to Cumbria in 2010 and offers a carefully selected group of caring, loving homes for dogs to holiday in while their owners are away. We are based in the Lake District and have various homes throughout Cumbria, Lancashire and Southern Scotland. Caring for pets is an enormous responsibility and a huge commitment which we take very seriously, so all our homes are very dog friendly, have enclosed gardens, and sitters who are available to care for your dog all day, every day. Your dog will receive long country walks, lots of cuddles and are looked after like part of the family. Whatever your dogs’ requirements we will match it to a sitters home, and you should generally find you are no more than half an hour from a suitable holiday home for your dog.

Before we accept any bookings, we ask all owners to visit the recommended sitters home (with your dog). You will meet the sitter, see the home and check how your dog settles into their new environment. When your dog returns for its full holiday it will therefore recognise the scents and surroundings, which helps it settle and puts your mind at rest knowing it is looking contented. For more details on the booking process please read through the rest of our pages, or go to the ‘How to book page’ to make an enquiry.

What Our Customers Say

“Our dogs had a wonderful stay with Sue, a real home from home. They had a better holiday than we did!”     John and Diane Taylor, Kendal

“It was great to visit the home where our dog was to stay and meet the lovely couple who would be looking after him. I would certainly recommend using Top Dog Sitters who provided an excellent service throughout.”    Gill, Grange-Over-Sands

“We would like to thank you for pairing our border terrier ‘Otto’ with Renee. She is a lovely lady, who obviously loves dogs and it was clear to see that ‘Otto’ was very settled in her company.”   Barbara and Steve, Milnthorpe
