About our Home Boarding

My name is Holly, I have had dogs all my life and have been running Holly's Hounds since 2014. Your dog will be boarded in my smoke-free family home and will benefit from my company all day so will never get lonely while you are away. I appreciate that all dogs are different and strive to meet every dog's needs. I am DBS checked and fully insured to include one other unnamed person (my husband or 19 year old step daughter, Lucy). I have a Facebook page where I upload pictures of your dog during their stay so you can check in anytime you want to see what fun they are having or contact me as many times as you like! As can be seen from reviews on my Facebook page (@HollysHoundsBoarding), my clients love having this facility available to them.



Your dog will have free run of the ground floor of my home, secured side access and secure back garden. He/she would sleep downstairs in its own bed or cage which should be provided.

We have a park just a few minutes walk from our house and many nearby forests and parks.

My home is 1.8 miles from the nearest veterinary surgery though I can travel to your preferred surgery within a reasonable distance if required.


Daily walks on a lead from a choice of locations including street walks, a park just a few minutes from our house, locals parks and forests as well as exercise and play indoors or in the garden!

Health & Hygiene:

Dogs must be non-aggressive, good with children and not on the Dangerous Dogs Act list (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/all?title=dangerous%20dogs%20act).
All dogs must have up-to-date vaccinations including kennel cough (proof must be provided), be flea treated and wormed.

Any medical conditions to be discussed prior to their stay and medication and food/treats to be provided as I know all dogs have their own preferences. Written consent required to administer medication. No extra charge to look after dogs with medical conditions.

Dog's own bed should be provided to make your dog feel more at home though I do have my own supplies should they be needed.

We chose Holly last minute due to a family member having let us down. She's amazing! I cannot recommended her enough. She made both us and our young spaniel feel very much at home and at ease. She kept us updated with messages and photos during our holiday and really treated Woody like another member of her family. So if you have a pampered pooch that you couldn't bear to kennel then I would highly recommended this home from home environment We will definitely be using Holly again. Thank you so much.

I employed Holly as a temporary dog walker. I found her to be 100% reliable who did her upmost to make our dog feel at home with her. She also provided me with regular updates/pictures on how he was on his walks. This was very helpful and reassuring and I would not hesitate to recommend Holly's services and will definitely use her again should the need arise.

Dear Holly, Thank you so much for taking care of my Husky while I spent the weekend away, I felt really at ease knowing he was in a safe environment and was pleased to hear about the long walks you took him on, he was tuckered out when I got him home! Will always come to you with my dog from now on.
