Training, Activities and Behaviour for you and your dog
"Jazz, our Springer Spaniel, has been home boarding with Doro since she was 5 months old. From day one we felt we could trust Doro and instinctively knew she would take good care of Jazz. When we go on holiday or have long days out Jazz goes to stay with Doro, Lenny and George. Doro is clearly very knowledgeable and experienced and knows how to get the best out of any dog. We recently attended the games class which Jazz loved and at the same time increased her concentration and obedience. As her owners we learnt a lot too! In short we totally recommend Doro and her work at Dog Activity Spot. "

Thanks to you we enjoyed a relaxing holiday, secure in the knowledge that Brin was in capable hands. We had met you occasionally over the last year or so and we noticed how conscientious you were in ensuring the safety and well-being of the dogs in your care. The trial meeting between Brin and your two "boys", George and Lenny, went well and we were pleased with the facilities for housing Brin at your lovely home and garden. When we collected Brin he was happy and healthy and showed no signs of stress; he settled back in at home as if he hadn't ever been away. He hadn't forgotten you though - you received quite a greeting the next time we met you during "walkies"! Thank you for looking after Brin so well and we won't hesitate in getting in touch with you for our next holiday. Lawrence and Marie and Brin (Greyhound-X)
I used Dorothea to home board my two dogs in February while we went on holiday. On of my dogs is a 8 month puppy with a broken leg so required a lot more care and attention as she was on almost complete crate rest. Doro kept me updated during their 9 day stay with posts on Facebook and I can truly say that both dogs looked extremely happy . Tilly my lovely Labrador even persuaded Lenny to give up his bed and sofa for her so she obviously felt completely at home. On my return they both looked happy and relaxed . Doro gave me a complete update on what they had been upto and what she had been doing with them. I would happily recommend home boarding with Dorothea . Tilly and Summer would like to say a big thank you.

I have been using Doro’s Dog Activity Spot services for two years now, including walking and obedience training classes for my Jack Russell Stanley. The classes were very fun and informative for both me and my dog and I learnt tricks and tips which I still use on a daily basis to keep Stanley stimulated and certainly more obedient. Doro has also been extremely helpful when it comes to walking Stanley, whether adding walks last minute or swapping some around, the service has always been punctual, professional and above all else fun for Stanley. I would recommended Doro’s service any time to anyone, whether Jack Russell or Great Dane!.

Mabel regularly stays with Doro -sometimes overnight and sometimes just for the day. I know she is in such safe hands with Doro, is really well exercised and is treated as if she was one of Doro's own dogs. Mabel loves staying with Doro and I am convinced she knows as soon as she is in the car she is going to stay! As soon as we arrive she cannot wait to get out the car to greet Doro, Lenny and George. I am always happy to leave Mabel in such safe hands knowing she is cared for so well and enjoys her visits.

Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of Bubble when we were away. If he hadn't been so tired from the amazing exercise running around with your boys and generally having the best fun a dog could ever have we'd probably have struggled to persuade him to leave! It was so lovely not to have to worry about him whilst we were away knowing he was in the best possible hands.

Doro has a warm friendly demeanour and this clearly transfers into her love of dogs, which is entirely reciprocated with love and respect back from Ollie. He can barely contain himself when she arrives to pick him up… and is still buzzing with excitement when she returns him. He doesn’t enjoy my walks that much! Then when she’s gone, he’ll sleep and sleep and sleep. A job well done. She’s always willing to answer questions and offer advice, Doro is clearly passionate about her love and this shines through.
I would recommend Doro to anyone, and trust her entirely with my Ollie (who can be a troublesome toad a times)
