About our Home Boarding

We have over 20 years’ experience of owning our own dogs and looking after the dogs of friends and family.

We no longer have any dogs of our own and after requests from the friends of friends to also look after their dogs, we decided to open our home officially to offer home boarding and now spend our time enjoying the variety of dogs that we look after for others.

We are licensed by the local authority for up to 4 dogs, are fully insured and have a diploma in Pet Sitting and Dog Walking (which includes basic dog first aid).


Just like home, our guests have the run of the downstairs of the house, conservatory and garden throughout the day, sleep in their own beds, curl up on the sofa with us in the evening and play with their favourite toys.

We have a spacious house in a quiet close, a large garden, fully enclosed by a brick wall topped with a sturdy fence and lockable gates. The garden has plenty of grass, three patios (dogs can follow the sun or avoid it, depending on their preference) and all our flower beds are gravelled, which minimises digging.

If your dog(s) are used to sleeping in your room at night and would struggle to sleep elsewhere, we can accommodate that, otherwise the dog(s) will sleep on their own beds in the kitchen.


We walk all our guests at least twice a day, (if your dog is not up to this, let us know and we can adjust the length or number of walks accordingly).

Health & Hygiene:

Safety for all the dogs in our care is always paramount for us.

All dogs must be micro-chipped and be up to date with their vaccinations, including kennel cough. Proof of both will be required before we can accept your booking.

We also require all dogs to be treated for worms, fleas and tics within the three days prior to the beginning of their stay with us.

All dogs must be house trained, non-destructive and non-aggressive and friendly.

We are registered with Pets for Vets. If any dog becomes ill whilst in our care we will ensure he/she gets any treatment/care needed either from their own vet or from ours.
