About our Home Boarding

Experienced in gentle methods of dog training, behaviour and all aspects of dog care and health. All dogs are supervised and never left alone together in any circumstances. Safety is at the forefront of everything we do. Our forte is within the toy breeds as we used to enjoy showing our longcoat chihuahuas. However, We have also owned large breeds including boxers and gsd's so have plenty of experience all round. We recognise that not every dog is perfectly housetrained and we are happy to take on dogs that may be struggling with this or indeed puppies who need that extra bit of help/time. We believe that all dogs particularly the companion breeds need a special level of care and attention when they are seperated from their owners. I am also vigilant to certain breed specific health issues and I have completed and passed Veterinary Canine First Aid Course.


Your dog will either sleep in our spacious kitchen which is the hub of our household, or for the quieter dog that prefers their own space we will offer our cosy downstairs front room. Your dog will have his own bed for comfort and will be allowed free running of the kitchen area and our 140ft secure fenced garden from 6.30am until 10pm which is when we put them to bed. We understand that some dogs are so bonded to their owners that to be without them can be extremely stressful. Therefore we are happy to bring your dog and his/her bed up to sleep at our bedside and can offer a reassuring stroke should he/she become distressed at nighttime. We have also installed a purpose built ramp for easy outdoor access ideal for arthritic, elderly or disabled dogs.


With your permission we will walk your dog according to his/her needs and for peace of mind we have full insurance to do so. We have some lovely rural and costal walks just minutes from our home. We always ask you to meet us for a walk where we can let our dogs meet before bringing your dog into our home, this been easy given the nearby walking spots close to our home.

Health & Hygiene:

Regular grooming and teeth brushing will be carried out, we regret that we are unable to board a bitch any larger than a chihuahua that is due or in season, if your bitch should come into season whilst in our care you may be charged a daily surcharge please speak to us in advance for details.
We are happy to undertake certain requirements such as regular ear/tear-stain cleaning, administering medication or even extra combing in order to maintain a dense coat such as a Maltese.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! What can I say about this wonderful dog daycare and pet service? In a word - TREMENDOUS. Brownie's Doggie Daycare & Pet service is run by Ellie King. She was fantastic with our dogs during our holiday. I was fortunate to find Ellie on this website and she was available!! She not only takes the dogs on numerous walks, she focuses on your dog's general well being during their stay. It is a nerve racking event handing over your precious dogs to someone but Ellie (and her lovely family) are so personable that any fears are allayed. My dogs truly had their own holiday!! Ellie maintains daily contact with you wherever you are (you receive video footage and pictures) - again this is a comfort during your break. Ellie also maintains the dog and specialises in training their behaviours, eating habits and grooming. The level of exercise that my dogs received was second to none as they are very energetic! If you read this review then I hope you make the right choice and contact Brownies. I have already booked for 2016!!!

At first my wife and I were worried about who our dog Rosie would stay with whilst we took a family holiday. However, from the moment I first spoke to Ellie on the phone, she put me right at ease. Rosie had a wonderful time with Ellie and we had a wonderful time on holiday safe in the knowledge little Rosie was being well looked after. I would recommend Ellie to anyone with a small dog who wants a caring person to take excellent care of their dog when they are away. hopefully Ellie is free next year. :)

My family and I arranged a last minute holiday, our only problem was what to do with our beloved dog. I contacted Brownies and spoke to Ellie who reassured me. We all went to meet her and her wonderful family. Her own dogs are calm and well behaved. Her home is a clean and lovely environment. We had never left our dog before and was worried about his food, we needn't have worried we took his own food, toys and bed. Whilst we were away Ellie sent daily pictures and updates of our dog. She has two children who are really good with dogs and very respectful of them. He soon settled down in their lovely home. They are a lovely caring family and teddy felt really at home with them and was really welcomed. It is much more than a business to them it is a passion looking after dogs and Ellie and her family are so lovely I would highly recommend them for boarding and day care, we went away without having to worry. On our return teddy was pleased to see us but was in no rush to leave!!!!

Where do I even start, Ellie and her family were fantastic!! I boarded my Yorkshire terrier for over a week and Ellie made sure she was sending me pictures and videos of him, he absolutely enjoyed it and I will recommend this to anybody and everybody! The service she provides is 10/10! Thank you Ellie :) xx

I have lodged one of my show girls here for a little while and she absolutely loves it and gets experience of being socialized with other animals. She receives top quality care and is loved by all the family.
