Since we were young, dogs have been our life. The magic of being in a dog’s company, watching them fully living in the moment, as only a dog knows how to do, makes for a perfect existence. We have grown up with dogs and owned several breeds, but our knowledge was further developed when in 2013 we traveled around the world for a year, caring for dogs as we went.

Once back in the UK, we began looking after dogs regularly and fully realised our affinity with them; understanding their needs and thriving on the feeling of that moment when you and your dog walk in together in a calm, purposeful rhythm. We realised we were positively contributing to their well-being and knew we’d done our job when seeing their bright eyes radiating happiness and the smile on their owners faces when they returned, giving them a secure peace of mind when they left us with their dog. And so, Bright Eyes was born.

Our ethos is to provide a safe, loving and happy environment whilst you are away from your dog, whether for a few hours, a day or as long as you need. Rest assured, your dog will have a wonderful time – you can read it in their eyes!

When our Westie angel Poppy couldn’t stay with family, we would use a dog walker or boarder, but always worried whether she was having a nice time – we couldn’t bear the thought of her being sad, even for a second. We often wished she could speak, so we knew she was happy, but over time we realised she already was – in the way she wagged her tail, panted, was more inquisitive and – most of all – she had BRIGHT EYES.
