Testimonials

Harley – Andie, December 2018

“I can not recommend Sian, Dave and the boys enough. We live an hour away from Millin Brook, however it was worth every minutes drive for the peace of mind it gave us while away. Our 10month old Golden Retriever Harley is our baby and my sons wouldn’t let her go to anywhere other than a home away from home and Millin Brook was exactly what we were looking for. Harley, along with the other guests, were given the run of the downstairs of the house, cwtched up with the family in the evenings and slept in the kitchen at night. There’s so much outdoor space for everyone to run around and Harley had lots of visits to the beach and forest and we had plenty of videos and pictures of her time on holiday. The peace of mind it gave us to know she was happy and well looked after made our own holiday that much more enjoyable. Thank you so much to all at Millin Brook we will definitely be in touch to book Harley’s holiday in the summer and maybe a couple of visits before then too”.

Maggie & Mabel – Emma, November 2018

“Our dogs are a very big part of our family and the moment we had to leave them overnight was such a worry to find someone to trust, care and love them just as much as we do! We were so lucky to find Millin Brook luxury dog boarding and couldn’t have hoped for better care and attention that our Maggie and Mabel received in their recent stay, to see them on Facebook enjoying themselves and having lots of exercise made us so happy and it made missing them so much easier just knowing they were safe and well looked after. We would highly recommend Sian, Dave and family to anyone wishing the best care for their fur babies whilst needing to go away!!! Thank you so much”.

Buddy & Max – Hayley, November 2018

“Thank you for having Buddy and Max. This is their 2nd time at Millin Brook and I cannot recommend Millin Brook highly enough.
They were treated like one of the family, lots of walks and updated videos of how they are getting on. Thank you for looking after Buddy and Max again. They will be back soon! X”

Lenny – Gabrielle, November 2018

“Thank you all at Millin Brook for looking after little Lenny so well. He absolutely loved his time with you. Sian brought Lenny to our wedding for photos with us outside the church. Great service – highly recommended! Thank you!!!”

Mop – Annie, October 2018

“I was concerned about having to leave 6 month old Mop, due to work commitments, but I needn’t have worried. Millin Brook is wonderful…fab people, a lovely setting and excellent care. The icing on the cake – the video updates that showed Mop safe, well and enjoying himself. Happy puppy = Happy owner. Thank you Sian, Dave and the boys”.

Bob & Gyp – Michele, September 2018

“Our two dogs Bob and Gyp have recently had the most wonderful 2 week holiday staying at Millin Brook with Sian, Dave and family. They were looked after by all family members as their own. They have returned to us happy relaxed and tired dogs (sign of a good holiday) which is something we have not experienced using kennels. It was wonderful seeing daily videos of them with the family at the beach and woodland walks, (Bob especially loved his pool party!) and socialising with other dogs. The post card from them waiting for us on the mat on our return from our holiday was a nice touch. We can not recommend Millin Brook more highly for the fantastic and highly professional service that they provide. They are clearly experienced dog handlers and love what they do. Thank you very much for allowing us all to have a great holiday”.

Florence – Cathy, August 2018

“We travelled from Cardiff for Sian and Dave to look after our 4 year old Dalmatian. Their set up is just amazing and we wanted her to have a good holiday too! It was well worth the journey. We received lots of updates and photos and she always looked very happy and at home. Don’t think she missed us at all! There were lots of new friends to play with and there is loads of space for them to explore. This is an exceptional place and Florence will definitely be back next year! Thanks for having her x”

Floyd – Louise, August 2018

“Thank you both so much for the amazing care and attention you gave Floyd. All the extra special things that you did with him, walks on the beach, swimming in the sea. I think he thinks West is best now! The birthday cake was such a special touch which we loved watching. We missed him very much but you looked after him like your own. Thank you so so much”.

Bruno & Roxy – Huw, August 2018

“Roxy & Bruno (2 very naughty Beagles) came back to Millin Brook for a 2 week stay and we were blown away as to how brilliant they were looked after. We saw pictures and videos each day on facebook of their adventures to Solva, Newgale and Canaston Woods, which they loved. Sian and Dave also have extensive, fenced land at home – perfect for exercise and doggy adventures! When we got home from hols we had a picture post card of the dogs in the post letting us know what a wonderful time the dogs had, which was a beautiful touch. I really can’t recommend Millin Brook highly enough to everybody for a short or long term staycation. Thanks again guys!”

Ethel – Ted, July 2018

“Just picked up Ethel from David and Sian’s lovely executive kennels. More like a hotel to be honest. Ethel hasn’t said much but is exhausted on settee which means she has had a lovely time in our eyes. Facebook videos kept us updated and we could see she was well looked after. Would highly recommend. Thanks again”.

Meg – Eirian, July 2018

“We were worried about leaving our little Meg for the first time but had no need to worry as Millin brook provided a fantastic home from home for her. It is in a beautiful setting with a large secure garden to run around in. Sian, Dave and family welcomed her into their home and I looked forward to their daily pictures and updates of her adventures. They certainly went over and above what I would have expected. I would definitely recommend them”.

Jess – Matthew, July 2018

“Jess had a fantastic time at Millin Brook with Dave, Sian and the boys. Very much recommended, a lovely setting and a very personal and caring service. We will definitely use them again in the future. Excellent!”

Dash – John, July 2018

“Dash just returned from a wonderful stay at Millin Brook and is flat out after all the fun. It was great to see him as one of the family and enjoying the beach with Barnaby. The regular pictures and videos really reassured us that he was having a great holiday too. Sian and Dave are professional and caring people who we cannot recommend highly enough. Dash won’t be going anywhere else! Thanks again and for the little surprise in our post box on our return. Very nice touch”.

Madge – Laura, July 2018

“Madge our Cavachon has just returned from a 9 day stay here and it is the first time we have left her with people she doesn’t know in a strange house. Like most pet owners we were so anxious about leaving her. Sian invited Madge over to meet the family including Barnaby their dog before her stay and we were immediately at ease. You could feel straight away that they love dogs and would really look after Madge.

Throughout her stay we were updated with videos and pictures of Madge through Facebook showing she was having the best time, with lots of other guest dogs and Barnaby! This helped us to relax and enjoy our holiday knowing Madge was being well looked after and enjoying herself! 

We picked up a very relaxed absolutely knackered Madge today and brought her home to find that amongst all of the fun she had, she made some time to send us a post card!

Thank you both so much! We would recommend Millin Brook to anyone looking for a perfect home away from home for their dogs xxx”

Shadow – Greg, June 2018

“Highly recommend treating your dog to a stay here! Dave and Siân are lovely people with a great understanding of dogs. Helped us out so much and saved our trip to bluestone (which is just round the corner so perfect if you are visiting there). Shadow seemed to settle in quickly as we saw from the regular video updates of him having lots of fun! Thanks again guys!”

Monty – John, June 2018

“I cannot recommend Millin Brook Luxury Dog Boarding highly enough. I didn’t want to put my dog Monty into just ‘kennels’ when I was away… I wanted a ‘home from home’ for him… and I certainly found it! Monty was treated as one of the family & went on days out for walks, to the beach and woods with Sian & her family… and of course not forgetting young Barnaby who Monty developed a special bond with. Moreover, Sian was kind enough to post videos on Facebook of Monty’s escapades on almost a daily basis so I could rest easy knowing that he was having the time of his life. If this is a dog’s life, sign me up!”

Indie – Anne, June 2018

“Indie spent the day at Millin Brook whilst we visited Skomer Island. She had an absolutely wonderful day a lovely walk with their dog Barnaby which included a swim (lab essential on a walk). When we picked her up she had been fast asleep with Barnaby. Thank you so much Sian and Dave for looking after Indie. I would recommend Millin Brook to anyone who wants their dog looked after in a home environment and treated as one of the family”.

Lola – Vicky, June 2018

“Thank you so much for taking such good care of Lola! She was so happy, relaxed and content when I collected her and clearly had a fantastic time with you all! Such a lovely place!”

Joey – Jemma, May 2018

“Joey had a fabulous couple of days. Thank you for looking after him. 100% recommendation. Joey was treated with the upmost love and care”.

Dewi – Ffion, May 2018

“Dewi had a fantastic time with Sian and Dave. They went out of their way to make our wedding special and bringing him down. Will definitely be using them again, would highly recommend. Dewi would give five stars but he’s so worn out he’s slept for the last two days!!”

Roxy & Bruno – Huw, April 2018

“Roxy and Bruno had a fantastic few days with Sian, Dave and Barnaby. Were superbly looked after & they were brilliant with our troublesome twosome! Would highly recommend Millin Brook to everyone.”

Enzo – Robyn, April 2018

“Enzo had a fantastic break with Sian, Dave & their family! And of course not forgetting Barnaby. We really couldn’t have asked for a better environment for him, especially as he is so energetic and constantly loves to be around people, so we needed somewhere we knew he would be well cared for and engaged while we’re not there. Sian posted photos and videos regularly which we really appreciated seeing as we could see what a fantastic time he was having with the whole family. Sian & her family was also very accommodating when agreeing pick up/drop off times, which again is very reassuring. So, all in all, a fantastic service and we actually think that Enzo was quite sad to say goodbye to his friends, but never fear, he’ll be back soon! Thanks for everything, I hope you’ll have him back again because I wouldn’t want him going anywhere else!”

Holly – Heather, April 2018

“Excellent boarders, the best I have come across! Our 18 month old Golden Doodle had lots of fun playing with the resident 6 month old black lab Barnaby! It’s a beautiful secluded, secure, clean location with amazing areas for the dogs to have freedom to enjoy themselves but also warm and cosy for those dogs not so energetic! A real gem of a find.”
