About our Home Boarding

Home From Home Dog Care is -

- Licenced with Wakefield M.D. Council, Licence No.

- Fully insured with Protectivity Insurance

- Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) cleared

Here at Home From Home Dog Care, I look after dogs in my home, as though they are part of my own family. For dogs not used to staying in kennels, this is an ideal place to come, as they have all the creature comforts they are used to at home and can relax in familiar surroundings.

My home is a clean, quiet, calm environment, where dogs feel safe and settle well.

I only have one or two dogs staying at a time. Occasionally I may have three, just for a short cross-over period, but try to avoid this if I can.

Your dog will receive much love, care and attention here at Home From Home Dog Care and I provide a very personal, bespoke service.

I can send you photo and video updates.


Dogs have the run of the downstairs rooms and back garden but are not allowed to go upstairs. Overnight they sleep downstairs and I have a listening device which alerts me if they need me.

My garden is a reasonable size and securely enclosed by a 6ft solid fence that dogs cannot get over or under. The garden is always kept clean and safe and the gate is bolted during the day and padlocked at night.

Dogs from different households are put in separate rooms for feeding and to sleep at night.

I prefer you to bring their own bed (and blanket if they have one) as they are full of familiar smells which helps your dog to feel more at home.

If your dog has a favourite toy, bring that too - there’s always time for play here!

I also ask that you bring their own food to avoid any tummy upsets!


As much as possible I try to stick to your dog’s daily routine and give them as much exercise as you do.

Reid Park is just around the corner - perfect for short walks for small or elderly dogs. More energetic dogs can go "off-road" on longer walks along the Calder River, the Calder & Hebble Navigation Canal, Healey Mills and Coxley Woods.

I do not walk dogs "off-lead" unless you expressly wish and give written permission.

Health & Hygiene:

In accordance with Wakefield M.D. Council licensing conditions for this establishment -

- Bitches must be spayed.

- Dogs must be neutered.

- Puppies must be over 6 months of age.

- Vaccinations against Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis and Parvovirus (DHLP) must have been completed at least 4 weeks before boarding, and proof of vaccination must be provided.

Dogs must be treated for worms and fleas.

If your dog is on medication, that's not a problem, just give me detailed instructions and I will ensure continuity of treatment.

If you can, I encourage you to bring your dog to come and visit before you commit to booking. It’s important that you trust me and are happy with my facilities, so you have peace of mind while you’re away. Also, I like to meet your dog and make sure they’re well behaved and suitable for me to handle, for the safety and well-being of the both of us.
