About our Home Boarding

I look after dogs when owners go away on holiday or are away for the weekend or whatever. I've more than 25 years experience of looking after dogs. I love dogs. Holidays for Dogs has been running for over 7 years now....many dogs come back many many times. They love coming, love the attention, love the idea that they too enjoy their own holiday. It is really home from home. I always invite people and their dogs to come and see me - so they can see my premises and meet me. This is for everyone's benefit.


I live in a fairly standard 3 bed semi-detached house. I am licensed by the Local Authority and I am fully insured.

I have a safe and secure garden - and especially in the summer the dogs enjoy the sunshine and finding their own particular spots.

They get to share the house with me - and can watch the tv if they like or play with their toys.....and chat to me - they have a whale of a time:-) and so do I.


The garden is quite large - and dogs are welcome to play out there as often or as long as they want. In addition they will be taken out for a walk. Sometimes, if a dog enjoys it we may go for a walk on the beach or sometimes in the countryside. They would come with to visit friends and are generally in for a real treat.

Health & Hygiene:

Everything is done to ensure that your dog remains happy and healthy. Floors are disinfected with approved products regularly.
All dogs need to be vaccinated

I am astonished to read the previous review. I have left my dog at Holidays for Dogs several times a year for the last 5 years and will continue to do so with the utmost confidence. Shirley is passionate about animal welfare and takes the greatest care of all the dogs left in her charge. She would never neglect to seek veterinary treatment if it was required. As many of her customers are regulars, like myself, it would appear that they share my conviction that our precious pets are safe and happy with Shirley while we are away.

Boarders Response:Thank you for your kind review. It's always a pleasure to to see you and to care for your dog with his quirky ways.

Shocking service our little dog got attacked by one of the others never told us for four days so he got infected emergency vets and refusal to give any insurance details keep your pets away from this woman cruelty beyond belief

Boarders Response:It is always sad to hear of a dog being injured; I hope he will soon be better. However Dexter, a french bulldog, was not attacked whilst in my care. This dog was quite dominating in it's behaviour and attacked a spaniel in the presence of its owner. Dexter was pulled off from the attack and subsequently examined - there was no physical harm. There appeared to be no harm to the spaniel either except he was quite traumatised. At no time did I observe any injury to Dexter. He certainly was not the victim but the aggressor in the incident, which I reported to his owners. I did give my insurance details. I have never hesitated to take a dog to the vets if necessary but there was no evidence of an injury to this dog.

What can I say about Shirley? We have taken our little strange dog now four times to get used to going somewhere in case f emergencies and holidays. Shirley is so lovely with a great sense of humour and obvious love for dogs that come in all shapes and sizes with many differing personalities (dogs as well as owners!) she is obviously experienced with our furry friends and it is quite clear to us she really loves having the dogs to stay. We feel happy and relaxed knowing our beloved dog is in her care and will continue to use her services when we need to. It is our good fortune to have found such a place for our dog to stay. Thank you to Shirley(or Sheila)

It is home-from-home for Ted - he can never get in through the gate fast enough! I know he is safe and happy with Shirley and having fun with her other guests.
