About our Home Boarding

Don't want to put your pooch in kennels? We offer care in our family home while you're away. As we intend this to be a home from home experience we intend to board no more than up to 4 pets at any one depending on breed and temperament. We hold Public Liability, Care, custody and control insurance and are licensed by Northumbria County Council.

Accommodation:

We will take up to 4 large breeds or up to 4 small breeds and they will be cared for in our home as part of our family for the duration of their stay. Our hosts will take 2 dogs at any one time

Exercise:

All your pets needs will be discussed before their stay and we will keep to their normal feeding and exercise routines.

Health & Hygiene:

Your pets vacinations should be up to date and we would ask that they are treated for fleas and worms before their stay and details of any medication they are taking. Please see our web site for further information.

Massive thank you to Mary for looking after Butler this last fortnight, we left her with a list of instructions and meds which she was happy to deal with and having seen how well Butler settled in we cannot praise Mary and her support highly enough. No more kennels for our dog, we know the best place to leave him...

I do not know what we would have done without Mary, she is friendly, welcoming and most of all knows how to look after our two Chihuahua's. Leaving them is very hard for me, however Mary put me at ease. I know I have found an excellent home boarder for my little ones and would have no hesitations in recommending Mary's services to anyone. Thank you Mary

Lynne & Richard did a great job of looking after Gretel Not sure she was bothered about coming home. She keeps asking when our next holiday is! We will definitely use Hounds on Holidays again if Richard and Lynne are available.

From Lorna Miller on

As usual an excellent service from Hounds on Holiday, Max and Oscar have had a great time with both Mary, Lynne and Richard and there last visit was with David. He could not have made them feel more welcome, I think he had just about surrendered his home to them listening to the way they had been treated. There was some great video of them out enjoying themselves, I would without hesitation recommend hounds on holiday and we are just looking to book Max and Oscars holiday there again this year.

Just wanted to say a quick thankyou to gill and lynn who work with mary for having reepo also mary herself.. Ive used hounds on holiday for quite a while now and nothings a problem. Reepo (my chocolate labrador) absoloutley loves going. Hes very well cared for and they do everything with him that we would do at home. They often say they dont want to give me him back. Would recommend to anyone there fabulous

5 From Andrea on

I left Buddy for the first time recently in David's care and he had a great time. Buddy was very happy to be in David's company instantly which reassured me that he would be looked after very well. I will be sure to use hounds on holiday again!

5 From Michelle Wandless on

Excellent service. Our dog stayed with one of Mary's hosts, David We will have no hesitation in using Hounds on Holiday again.

From Nigel Westwood on

Leaving our two rescue Greyhounds was a huge decision as we usually take them on holiday with us, we needn't have worried Mary was really helpful from the start and once Ned and Kes had met host family David they all got on famously, Kes who is quite nervous took to David straight away and David kept their routine the same as at home, the dogs seemed to have had a great holiday ------ and so did we.

In the past have used boarding kennels but as my Golden Labrador 'Amber' is 13 now, did not want to stress her in a noisy kennel environment, so after an initial internet search came across 'Hounds on Holiday' via findpetboarding.com. From my initial contact with Mary the organiser & subsequently visiting our Host Family Andrew & Amanda's dog friendly home with their lovely cocker spaniel 'Henry' for an initial meet & greet visit. We had no reservations about leaving Amber for 3 days while we attended our son's graduation. When we returned to pick up Amber, although obviously pleased to see us, you could tell that she had enjoyed her stay by the way she still interacted with Andrew, Amanda & of course Henry. I would not hesitate to use 'Hounds on Holiday' again & hopefully Andrew & Amanda as my dog's carers.

5 From Lynn on

My dog spent two weeks with Lynn and Richard. They also had an old Lab staying at the same time and the two dogs got on very well together despite the age difference. My dog was well-looked after and seemed quite happy when he came home. He still looks wistfully at their house when we pass on our walks. That they live so near to me if a bonus, he's in familiar surroundings and in a dog friendly home. Couldn't get much better than this.

5 From Val on

From our initial contact with Mary and then meeting Lynne and Richard in their lovely home we knew we had found the right people to look after Trampus. They are wonderful people who love dogs and give you the confidence that your pet will be part of their family and well looked after in a home environment. Tramp also agrees, a very happy boy who will be more than happy to go back and stay, thank you very much.

5 From Caroline on

Having met Andrew, Amanda and their dog Henry before leaving our Yorkshire terrier with them for 2 weeks, I felt confident that Smudge would be well looked after in a home from home environment. Smudge did indeed have a loving, fun and comfortable stay and although pleased to see us on our return, definitely missed them for a day or two! I would not hesitate to recommend Hounds on Holiday and will definitely be using them again when we next go on holiday, as it means we can enjoy a worry free break knowing that Smudge is being cared for just as she would be at home.

5 From D Liddle on

Our Chow-Tsu dogs, Merlin and Meimei, love going to Hounds on Holiday. We don't worry when we are going away because we know our precious pets are having a great holiday themselves, often going to the beach and playing in the woods. They are cared for by real dog lovers and they always come home happy and in great condition. Highly recommended!

From Bev Anderson on

We left our dog Alfie with some trepidation as we had never left him before, we need not have worried. Mary was very friendly and clearly cares about her charges. The garden is a safe haven for the animals. The cost was very reasonable knowing he was being loooked after in the home and not in a kennel. Alfie returned to us a very happy dog I would have no worries about leaving him in the future and would not hesitate to recommend.
