Dutch Barn Day Care for Dogs
Dutch Barn Day Care for Dogs 

Meet me

My name is Mildred Till and I have been living with my husband John on his pig farm near Welburn since 2007. After a lifetime of working for travel agencies, counselling companies, law firms and a science lab, I’ve now been able to make my dream come true and set up the day care kennels behind our house.

I grew up and lived with all kinds of dogs amongst which various Dachshunds,  Maltese, Pekinese, Bernese Mountain, Scottish Terrier, German Pointer, German Shepherd, Basset Griffon Vendeen, Bassethound, Labrador and some mongrels. At the moment we have two Labradors at the farm and three Dachshunds at home. You might meet them when you're here.

What can be more fulfilling than working for and with dogs and their owners, from home and outdoors? With my services I hope to be able to also give you and your dog a good work/life balance!

I have attended the Rhodes2Safety First Aid course twice now (http://www.rhodes2safety.co.uk) and I have attended the Glen Stanford Whisperer course and received the diploma for Dog psychology and behaviour level 1. I have now also got a diploma in Canine Communication and Pet Sitting & Dog Walking, both from the New Skills Academy.

Since October 2021 I have been joined by Clare Lennon, a true Yorkshire girl, born in York and presently living in Welburn. Clare runs the daycare on a daily basis, while I support her together with my husband John.


Clare says: 

Growing up, as a family we had a wide assortment of animals including a donkey and pet mouse but have always had cats and dogs.

As a small girl my love for dogs came from the family black Labrador Major who endured hours of me cuddling and singing to him. Fast forward thirty odd years and my own faithful canine companion Seth (also a Labrador) still endures the same!

He has been my constant sidekick since 2023 and he has come to work with me on a daily basis, after my pevious Labrador Solomon sadly passed away.

I was working in a kennels which I loved when a mutual friend of John and Mildred's told me this post came up and the rest is history.

I absolutely love being at Dutch Barn. My dog clients are like my own extended canine family. I’m the mother of dogs. We play, we cuddle and if they are naughty they get told off.

I love caring for each one of them, it’s a privilege to be trusted by you and to be loved by them. I’m a lucky girl.
