Dog Holiday Care

Dog Boarding in our Home

We offer our friendly home environment as an alternative to boarding kennels. As a dog owner we know how important it is to have peace of mind that your dog will be cared for and happy when you are away. Your dog will live as a member of our family alongside our sprocker spaniel, Lily. We can accommodate your dog’s normal daily routine: it will eat its normal food and sleep in its own bed.

We will never mix dogs from other families and will only take board 1 or 2  small dogs from the same family at any one time.

Your dog must be house trained and sociable. We reserve the right not to accept certain breeds of dogs. Your dog must be fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and free from parasites. We cannot accept un-neutered males or unspayed females. Your dog will be walked twice a day and will not be left alone for long periods of time. They will benefit from our 200ft long secure garden, but will not be allowed in the garden without supervision. Our house is totally secure: there is no access from the front of the house other than through the front door and garage, so your dog will not have the chance to escape.

Whilst your dog will be treated as a member of our family it will be expected to display basic obedience and good manners, and adhere to house rules like no going upstairs – we do have a stair gate. If your dog is to have a holiday with us you will need to provide its own bed, food bowls, toys and lead.

We always require an initial face-to-face familiarisation visit to meet your dog, discuss your requirements and see all relevant documentation. We also will need the details of an emergency contact whilst you are away. This familiarisation visit will allow you to assure yourself that your dog will receive the best possible care, and for us to be sure that your dog will fit into our home environment.

Whilst you are away we can keep you informed about your dog’s holiday via our Facebook page, via e-mail or text.
