About our Home Boarding

Registered and endorsed by Chesterfield Borough Council. We have a passion for dogs and have owned a dog since 1990. The dogs are homed as part of our family alongside our own dog, Poppy, who always welcomes new doggy visitors with a waggy tail.

* We do not accept non neutered dogs *


The dogs are kept in large climate controlled rooms from which they have access to a substantial patio and lawn. The garden is fully secured by 6 foot hedge, fencing and is private with CCTV for added security. Tested and approved fire alarms.


We are located next door to a large dog friendly park. We are not on a main road and there are lots of different walks reachable on foot to suit the dogs needs. We normally do a morning and late afternoon walk of about 30 minutes each but will cater for your dogs needs whatever they may be.

Health & Hygiene:

We are DBS checked, Chesterfield Borough Council licensed (083), fully insured and act in accordance with the Animal Boarding Establishments Act 1963. We are inspected annually which involves health, hygiene, environmental and various risk assessments. We are fully conversant with what high standards are required.

My dog Hiddles stayed with Julie and her family for 4 days, after a family member was unable to look after her. We had never used anyone outside of the family before, so I was quite worried about finding someone last minute, especially with my dog suffering from separation anxiety. Julie listened to my concerns and suggested a trial stop over, she was very sensible and it was clear she was putting my dogs needs first to make sure she would be happy and that more than one day wouldn't be too stressful. I was then remeasured that she would be okay. Whilst away Julie kept in daily contact, answering all my concerns about any problems, which enabled me to enjoy my week away. When collecting Hiddles it was clear how much Hiddles had enjoyed being there and had made a friend in Julie. Even after collecting Hiddles, Julie was happy to help with queries and showed a genuine interest and care for Hiddles. I would definitely recommend Divine Dog Care and would return if needed. Definitely a home from home experience for Hiddles. Thank you.

Julie has recently looked after my 4yr old Heinz variety dog, Max, a sort of jack Russell on stilts! She took him at very short notice, literally a day as my usual dog sitter was poorly. As soon as I spoke to her on the phone I was confident Max would be fine with her, and he really was. In fact I think he would have been more than happy to stay much longer, so ive promised him I'll take him back! Julie absolutely knows dogs, you can tell how they interact with her. Her house is lovely, not a hint of a doggy smell (how does she manage that?!) and totally dog friendly, a fab safe and spacious garden and settees esp for canine visitors. Max thought Christmas had arrived! Julie messaged me to reassure me he had settled and also the next day to let me know he was ok, tho as soon as I met Julie I had no concerns at all. I would recommend her 100%, what a lovely person. Thanku Julie again to you and ur family.

Julie recently looked after our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Lola. Lola was very nervous and had never been in someone else's home to stay without us (we were probably more nervous than Lola :)) We shouldn't have been, Lola enjoyed her stay and clearly had developed a bond with Julie in the 2 weeks she was there! Julie's home is perfect, with a large garden and open plan conservatory/kitchen space, she is kind and calm! I would highly recommend Julie for anyone looking for a home from home dog sitter. Thanks Rachel

Julie made our very pampered miniature dachshund feel right at home! She made us feel very comfortable with leaving him in her care and he loved every minute of the stay with her. We would highly recommend Julie to others and will be using her again.

My 8 year old Border Collie recently stayed with Julie. Large garden with a park next door. Lovely atmosphere with lots of space for dogs to find their own spot. Julie and family are huge dog fans and it shows. Very knowledgeable and caring. I would definitely use her again.

Julie recently looked after my one year old Springer Spaniel Bea over a weekend and I would have no hesitation in leaving her with Julie and her family again. She was welcoming to us from the moment we met, very thorough when explaining what I could expect for my dog during her stay and happy to answer any questions I had. The accommodation was clean and safe throughout and the secure garden was brilliant for Bea to explore and play in. This was Bea's first stay away from a family member and she is timid when meeting new people and especially new dogs but Julie was very reassuring. I could see she had a great relationship with the other dogs she had in her care from our meeting prior to Bea's stay. Even though I was only away for a day Julie sent me pictures and updates to reassure me that Bea was settling in. When I picked her up on Sunday I could immediately see the difference in Bea as she was running around happily and had taken to Julie very quickly. I'd happily recommend Divine Dog Care to anyone searching for reliable home boarding. Many thanks Julie!

Excellent - 5 Star. There are many that advertise home boarding but Julie does 'what it says on the tin'. She took my 11 year old westie Oscar at very short notice for 6 nights while I went on a house hunting trip. Oscar has a few health problems and I didn't want to leave him in a kennel environment as any stress can make him poorly. He has returned home happy, healthy and well cared for and I'm certain he enjoyed his short holiday and would have been quite happy to stay longer. Julie also provides daily updates which is very reassuring, nothing is too much trouble. I will definitely be using Julie again and I can truly say that if you have any doubts about leaving your best friend give Julie a try, you won't be disappointed, it really is home from home boarding. Many many thanks Julie from Pauline & Oscar x

Julie recently looked after my Cockerpoo dog "Rolo". She is a very nice lady who took great care of my dog. I felt really comfortable leaving Rolo for two weeks whilst on holiday. Julie sent me uptodate pictures of rolo and text messages informing me how he was settling in . Rolo seemed very happy at his holiday home with Julie and was well looked after. I would recommend Julie for anyone looking for a responsible and reliable dog sitter. Regards Susan

My dog Lucy, a podenco rescue dog recently adopted from Spain, was home boarded here at Julie's for a week in March 2015 and I just cannot praise or recommend Divine Dog Care highly enough, spacious homely environment, large secure garden and love and care in abundance, Lucy was so relaxed when I collected her. Whilst on holiday Julie sent regular updates and photos which really reassured me. I would definitely leave Lucy here again with no hesitation, it really is home from home. Thankyou Julie you looked after my little girl like I would x
