About Us

Home From Home is a new family business based in the countryside near Tullibardine, Auchterarder.

My husband David and I have lived in the area for more than 50 years.

I have recently retired from 18 years working with children in Perth and Kinross schools, and launched my dream of running my own business working with dogs.

Dogs have been a life-long passion for us, alongside our many loved pets – fish, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, ducks and chickens. We have lived in the countryside all our lives and know how healthy fresh air and nature is for well being.

Our dog care service Home From Home gives your best friend enriching exercise in a safe and private countryside area built especially for the dogs in my care. I have a securely fenced ½ acre woodland near Tullibardine, just 2 miles from Auchterarder, that is exclusively available for your dog to run free and explore under my care and supervision.

We also offer bespoke walks where your dog will be treated to an outdoor adventure. Our on-lead walks take place in the woods and countryside around our home. On our doorstep we have nature walks up to three miles in length, so we can cater for the least-to the most-active sniffers. They will have the most exciting time a dog could ask for!

We would like to introduce you to our three much loved dogs, Chic, a rescue spaniel cross terrier who is 8, Murphy, a rescue English Springer Spaniel aged 9, and my lovely live wire Basil, a working Cocker Spaniel who is 2. They are pampered part-time gun dogs who love a gambol in the countryside followed by a cuddle in front of the TV. My husband and sons say there are more photographs of the dogs than humans in my house and I blush to admit that yes I probably spend more time with my dogs than with my family, who to be fair, work very hard in the countryside.

If you need more long term care, we can provide a fully licensed home boarding service. We board a maximum of 3 dogs from one family, to ensure we can give them personal attention and the best of care when they are on their ‘holidays’ with us.

Home From Home offers a variety of pet care options, please look at our Services page for further details. If you think we can help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch! We can’t wait to meet you and your pets!
