Patient, kind and very professional

We took Vera our lab pup to puppy socialisation sessions with Lesley after a chance conversation with our vet and twelve months later we are still going to training classes with Lesley!
An experienced dog owner, I have learned so much from Lesley’s training classes. She is patient, kind and very professional but most importantly has a great relationship with all of the dogs. Vera and I have benefited so much from the classes resulting in frequent comments when out walking about how well behaved Vera is with both people and other dogs.
I would highly recommend her training classes to anyone and will miss our weekly sessions when we achieve Gold level!


Reliable, trustworthy and just a lovely person

I feel so lucky to have found Red Lion Canines who stepped in when I was let down by another dog walker when Indie first arrived as a pup. 3 years later, Indie still looks forward to her walks with Lesley 3 times a week. Knowing Indie so well, Lesley gives me feedback if there’s anything out of the ordinary on their walk that day or if Indie’s just not quite herself. I know she’s well cared for and in good hands.
If you’re looking for a reliable, trustworthy and just a lovely person to walk your dog I can’t recommend Lesley and Red Lion Canines enough.

Biscuits Second Home

Biscuit has been going to Red Lion Canines for nearly 18 months now and it’s the best decision we have ever made. Lesley and Phil take amazing care of Biscuit and I cannot recommend them enough.

Biscuit goes there at least twice a week and sometimes has sleepovers so he can spend even more time with all his doggy friends!

If you want to feel at complete ease without worry in the world about your pet, then Red Lion Canines is for you!


Caring and trustworthy service

Dolly has been going to Red Lion Canines since she was a pup. She is very happy to go there. Lesley is the best Daycare and Home Boarder in the area, and I would highly recommend their caring and trustworthy service.

Happy and friendly

Our 2 year old cocker spaniel Coco has been coming to Lesley for daycare and holiday breaks for about 18 months now. She loves seeing Lesley and Phil, so much so she pulls me to the door when we arrive! She always comes home happy and content. Lesley and Phil are always happy and friendly. We feel extremely happy and confident about the care that coco receives.

Loving and patient

I can’t recommend Lesley and Red Lion Canines enough . My German Shepherd Ella loves going there and sometimes refuses to come home she loves it so much
Lesley is fantastic with Ella loving and patient and after a day with her Ella comes home happy and content
It’s home from home you can’t get any better


Highly competent, professional and very friendly and helpful

Lesley and Phil have looked after my labrador for both day and overnight stays.

I have also attended Lesley’s dog training courses and organised group dog walking sessions.

I have always found them to be highly competent, professional and very friendly and helpful.

I would thoroughly recommend them to other dog owners who are looking for an excellent service.


My ‘go to’ place for anything dog

Red Lion Canines are my ‘go to’ place for anything related to training, behaviour advice and for dog walking / sitting arrangements. Lesley is incredibly patient, knowledgeable and calm. My dog is always very happy to go there, or to be walked by her. We also went to puppy socialisation classes there, about 2 years ago which were very beneficial. I wholeheartedly recommend Lesley and Red Lion Canines to any new / current dog owner.

A very happy little doggy

We were lucky enough to find Lesley at Red Lion Canines to look after our beautiful Cockapoo Margot on the odd occasion when we go away. Lesley is wonderful with Margot and we are confident in the care she receives when she stays. Communication is fantastic and Margot always comes back a very happy little doggy. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lesley for all things canine!


I can’t recommend Lesley enough

I can’t recommend Lesley enough
Our dog Chewie absolutely loves staying with her.
We are so happy that we can leave him in the knowledge that he is going to be well looked after and cared for throughout his stay.
