What Our Clients' Think....

Frankie is a lovely but quite anxious little dog and particularly suffers anxiety when away from us. So we were very impressed when Lucy sent us photos and videos showing how Frankie had settled in so well. Since bringing Frankie home, we have noticed much improved behaviour in certain key areas and this is testimony to how Lucy engaged training techniques during his stay. Above all, the Long Dog Hotel is a very loving and caring environment and we are very happy to recommend and we will leave Frankie there whenever we are away.  Graham 

A wonderful lady who is full of love for dachshunds and especially for those who suffer with IVDD. Lucy will send constant updates and videos which are great and made me feel reassured. Her property and grounds are safe and secure. My Lupa suffers with ivdd and Lucy was totally on the ball when it came to her care in the house or out whilst walking. Lupa is also needy and anxious and again Lucy was full of warmth and cuddles. Highly recommend. Carmina

Thank you Lucy! You really are the  best. Not only do you take the best care ever of Chip! He also got days out, amazing walks, coffee shops with treats, live music roast dinners! He absolutely adores you as do we! Chip cant wait for his next holiday with you Simon and his furry friends xx Rachel

The absolute best Hotel for your dachshund. Amazing communication and regular updates (pupdates). A real home from home. Our little dog absolutely loved her stay at the Long Dog Hotel - She won't be staying anywhere else from now on. Love Brownie & Ketan

What can I say about Lucy and her care for our precious pets?! Dennis has grade 5 IVDD, is paralysed, and this has not fazed Lucy at all! Nothing has been too much trouble, and her willingness to adapt her routines, to fit in with Dennis's, has been without fault. As neighbours of the Long Dog Hotel will testify, Dennis barks SO excitedly every time we approach the gates for a visit! Jo

Lucy is professional and friendly, has a real attention to detail and is clearly all about dachshunds. Her lovely home is spacious and safe, very dog friendly. Kiki has had a lovely time and it was very reassuring seeing all the cute videos. Highly recommended. Carey

Lucy's love for and knowledge about the miniature dachshunds in her care is obvious from the moment you meet her. A calm and quiet environment is perfect for little sausages to relax and get used to being away from dog parents. The initial meet and greet with Millie Moo, Dolly, Lucy and Simon is a great way to break the ice and ask questions and the 2 night trial means that everyone really gets to know each other. We are so happy to have found The Long Dog Hotel and we know that Rosie will have the best time on her holiday.

Winston had his first Dachsie day care with Lucy at the Long Dog Hotel this week and had a lovely day. Can't thank Lucy enough for looking after our little chap who can be a little nervous and showing us during the day just how relaxed and happy he really was. Very much appreciate the care taken, really clear how much it means to you. We will be back !  Rob
