About our Home Boarding

I have been boarding a maximum 5 dogs in my home since 2006.

I have one dog of my own, Molly, a petite collie cross rescued from an Irish pound. We think she was born in June 2015 and as she is young and lively loves having friends to play with.

I am licensed by Wiltshire Council following an annual inspection by the Dog Warden and have specialist pet sitting insurance. Both certificates are displayed in the kitchen.


We live in an old Cotswold stone house with a light, airy kitchen. The underfloor heating and Aga means it is always warm on even the coldest nights.

I have a 1 1/2 acre garden and orchard for romping around.


Luckily there are a huge variety of walks locally on footpaths, through open fields, along brooks and in woods. Westonbirt Arboretum is 10 minutes away and occasionally we go further afield to the beach at Breen.

Health & Hygiene:

Vaccinations, including kennel cough, worming, flea and tick treatments need to be up to date. I am registered with The George Veterinary Group in Malmesbury who will be used in an emergency. Pets on medication are welcome.

Dry food is kept in clean vermin proof containers in my utility room. Wet and raw food is kept in the fridge or freezer.

Your dog will wear a tag with my full address and telephone numbers for added security.

I have a first aid and grooming kits.

Home Boarding Prices

£30 per night.

Minimum booking of 7 nights during school holidays.

£100 deposit to confirm booking will be deducted from final bill.

Other Services

If you wish I can arrange to take your dog to an excellent professional dog groomer and add the grooming fee to your bill with no mark up or travel charge. A copy of the grooming bill will be attached to my invoice.

Dogs bring their own food but I supply daily treats of Dentasticks and Fish4Dogs twists.

Absolutely brilliant service. Our Spaniel although 11, had never been away from home for any length of time. Melissa certainly went the distance to ensure our dog was not only welcomed but enjoyed her 3 days stay. In a rural environment our dog enjoyed long walks around the Westonbirt area. We will definitely use the services of Melissa again.
