About our Home Boarding

I have 25 years dog owning experience - German Shepherds and Spaniels. I have trained dogs in obedience and agility too. Now I no longer have a dog of my own but as I am at home all day I enjoy looking after other peoples and can offer overnight boarding and day care for small to medium sized dogs. I am insured and licenced by Eastleigh Council

Your dog will be treated as part of the family in our home and not in kennels.He will have free access into a good sized, interesting and safely enclosed garden. I am at home all day and your dog will get a minimum of 2 walks a day as well as loads of love and attention.

You can go away and know that your dog will be happy and well cared for.

No minimum or maximum duration. Only 1 dog at a time (unless they are already friends)


I have a 2 bedroom house with conservatory and very good sized garden. Your dog will have access to all areas and free access into the garden. He can sleep in whichever room he is most comfortable.


All dogs staying with me will get a walk each day and these will be designed to suit the individual dog. There is a large park and woodland area 2 minutes from the house and we usually enjoy trips to the beach and riverside too as well as road walking around the village.

Health & Hygiene:

Your dog will need to be vaccinated and have his flea and worm treatment up to date. I will pop my own identity tag onto his collar and am happy to manage any feeding regime required.

Home Boarding Prices

£25 per day for boarding
£20 Per day for day-care

Payment terms are varied to suit the individual circumstances but would usually be by bank transfer in advance or cash on arrival.

Zak, our cavapoo, has stayed with Linda a few times now and it has become his second home! He always greets her with excitement and, of course, that immediately makes us feel so reassured he will be well looked after whilst we are away. Linda keeps in contact with us, updating on Zak's antics and photos which is great. We have trust in Linda with our little treasure, Zak, and would recommend her without hesitation.

My miniature schnauzer Archie stayed with Linda for 10 days whilst we were on holiday. I was so pleased to find Linda and felt totally happy to leave Archie knowing he would be well cared for in a home from home environment. Linda updated me whilst we were away how Archie was getting on which was great! I can't recommend Linda highly enough.

My Labrador Molly loves spending her days with Linda. she's always super excited to arrive and doesn't want to leave. Linda is flexible and will always try to accommodate even last minute booking requests. I feel happy in the knowledge that I can leave Molly and she will have a lovely time whilst I'm at work

So happy to have found this "home from home" for Charlie, my King Charles spaniel. He seems perfectly content when I leave him, and I know that if I want a night away he would be happy to have "a sleep over" there. Much nicer than an impersonal kennel- he's with a dog loving family.

Linda looks after my dog on an adhoc basis so is really flexible and can always take him last minute if my plans change. She has a lovely, welcoming home and is just a few minutes walk from lovely open fields. My dog is particularly nervous and Linda has been really considerate, accommodating and supportive. He has stayed over night a couple of times and Linda offers a real home from home experience so I always feel very relaxed to leave him. An overall excellent service from a very experienced and compassionate dog sitter. Would definitely recommend!

We came across Hounds Hampshire after we were let down by our usual dog sitter last minute, I contacted Linda to find out whether she had any last minute availability for a Bank Holiday weekend. Linda came back to us almost instantaneously to let us know that she was free on our specified dates and made us aware that there could be a short cross over with another dog during Ruby (our dogs) stay, she asked if we would be comfortable with this and informed us that she would have to check with the other dogs owner as to whether they would be comfortable with having another dog there. As both dog owners were happy Linda was able to have Ruby for three days (two nights). We met Linda at her home before Ruby's stay which allowed our dog to have a look around and familiarise herself with Linda’s home prior to her stay. Linda ran through a couple of questions about Ruby’s food and exercise routine as well as various other points about her care which put us at ease prior to leaving our dog with her, it also gave us the opportunity to ask any questions we may have had. She made us feel very welcome and was a friendly host, after the initial meeting we had no hesitations in leaving our dog with her. This was the first time that we have used a dog boarding service. Linda has a lovely home and garden that is well suited for boarding/looking after dogs, she made it very clear that she would be allowing the dog to feel as part of the family during her stay. Linda contacted us over the weekend to assure us that she was settled at her house which put us at ease. I would have no hesitations in recommending Hounds Hampshire to other dog owners that are looking for a friendly home for their dog stay and we will definitely be using her services in the future.
