I have just come back from 10days away and left my four babies with Pat and Roger (after raving reviews from people). Well, what can I say? This has been the first holiday in all the years I have had my four puglets that I felt fully comfortable leaving them with anyone. I'm not saying that previous places I have left them haven't looked after them properly, far from it, but from the moment I dropped them off I knew that we would all enjoy or holidays, puglets included. I have two with medical issues (one with allergies and one with hip dysplasia and scoliosis of the spine) and one old girl of 14, as well as another but Pat wasn't phased by this at all. Instead of a kennel to live in they had the run of Pats house and her massive garden as well of lots of new friends to play with. I had regular updates with photos and videos to put my mind at ease. I cannot recommend Pat & Roger highly enough 🐶🐶🐶🐶❤️❤️

My 2 pugs Dolly and Brian staid with Pat and Roger in may for 11 days . They had the best time , wouldn't leave my pugs anywhere else, so glad I found Pat and Roger highly recommend

I have been boarding my pug with Pat and Roger for a year and a half and am so lucky to have found them. I can go on holiday and have absolutely no worries as my fur baby is in secure hands. As well as boarding pugs, Pat and Roger also foster pugs that need a new home and I am lucky enough that they helped me adopt a second pug. I now have 2 pugs that can't wait for me to go on holiday so they get a holiday themselves playing endlessly in their beautiful garden. Thanks for all your help since I met you, I wouldn't trust my babies elsewhere! Xxx

We left our two frenchies to go away for 10 days. Our baby Luna was only 4 months old. They loved it at Pat and Rogers home and it was clear from the photos I received that they were very happy without us:/, exactly what you want when your away, the peace of mind your dogs have 1st class care. Can't recommend enough. Thank you 💙💖

My Chihuahua, Ted, stayed with Pat and Roger for 9 days while myself and my partner were abroad. I was so pleased to receive daily updates and photos from them. It was like a home from home. We had never left Ted before so we were really nervous and worried after dropping him off. But I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the service. Pat and Roger were so friendly and have years of experience. I would fully recommend them and Ted will most certainly be returning in the future!

Look no more ....... You have found the perfect holiday home for your pet . This was the first time I'd ever left Ronnie and Rosie ( my 2 pugs ) roger and pat are perfect . And kept me up to date on what they was both up to I was a bit worried about them with the boxers . But they loved them . So much so they are both sulking now they are home . Am so happy I can now go on holiday knowing my babies are I'm the best care :) thank you both for that and we will see you soon ..

Don't worry about continuing your search for the perfect doggy holiday home, this is it you've found it! Pat and Roger are the best! This isn't just a job, they live for it, and this is reflected in their knowledge of the Breeds they care for, the the love and attention your dog will receive when here. Dave the pug stayed for four weeks and he was treated like one of the family. It's the first place I have left Dave and truly walked awake without any concerns. Dave didn't even look back! Pat kept me up to date with funny little stories which kept my mind at rest, and Dave got on great with the other pugs and boxer's! To our surprise Roger put Dave on a new diet which really helped him slim and had a great impact on his breathing and generally well being. Dave is happier and breathing better than ever! Dave is looking rather dapper now :) it was almost like a little puggy boot camp! Thanks soooooooo much Pat, Roger and Co! Dave will defo be back!

Having searched the internet for dog boarding we consider ourselves lucky to have found Tops Pet Boarding. We have a 9yr pug Buddy (with little dog attitude) and a 8yr griffon Ralph. The boys (Buddy and Ralph) had opportunity of an introduction prior to boarding, in order to meet Pat, Roger and the doggy gang. This was such a good experience and we felt reassured by Pat & Roger's knowledge of such breeds. The boys have now had two holidays (May and August 2014) and I can say the care they have received has been outstanding. Of the latter, Buddy was unfortunately taken very poorly during his stay. Pat effectively sought emergency vet attention, and then nursed him back to good health. I have every confidence in the care Pat & Roger provides. Watching the boys interact with Pat, Roger and the gang, for us this demonstrates how they enjoy their stay, like a second home. We would no longer think of taking the boys elsewhere. Thank you Pat & Roger 😊

Don't look no further, your search for the best dog hotel is here! This was our first experience of boarding our beloved baby bulldog Quinny and we were so pleased we did it. Quinny stayed with Pat & Roger for 3 weeks in March-Apr 2014 whilst we went on honeymoon to South Africa. In that time we were sent regular updates and photos which was really reassuring. First and foremost Pat & Roger are real animal lovers....their house and extensive grounds is devoted for all pooches to play in. In fact whilst we was away Quinny ended up sleeping in Pat & Rogers rooms....a remarkable feet considering Quinny's ear ringing snoring! They even took Quinny to the vets, when her paw got slightly infected (a common bulldog trait). We are booking Quinny in again soon whilst we move house....and we just know Quinny will have the time of her life playing with the pugs and boxers there. She gets so spoilt there! Even if we lived in Scotland we would still use the services of Pat & Roger. Thats how good these people are. Its a real doggie retreat....the 5 star standard of a pet hotel.

I would like to thank Pat and Roger for all they have done. Lola stayed with them for 3 weeks whilst we were away,( the holiday was booked prior to us rehoming her) after we were let down by someone else. After phoning around to find many boarders fully booked we came across Pat and Roger. Given the short notice, they were very reassuring and we were able to meet the crew prior to leaving her. Lola has clearly had a fantastic time with them and being our only dog we feel it was great socialising for her too. We were frequently updated with pictures, which made us feel she was in good hands while we were away. I cannot recommend Pat and Roger enough and feel I would rather leave Lola with them than other family members! We now know that we have a good home from home for Lola, if ever we want to go away again. Thank you!

Id like to start by thanking pat and roger again for having Bella (our 7month old pug) what lovely people you both are. If any of you are looking for accomadation for your dog while on holiday you wont be let down. Even though our pug was so young the first time we went away i left her with ease (not like at a kennel) knowing she was going to be in brilliant hands and not left alone being so young. I recieved a text with messages a few hours after leaving her reassuring me she was fine. These people really are dog people and in my experiance treat every dog that comes in like their own. We already have own next holiday booked and arranging for her to stay here again. Thanks again. Charlotte x

This was my first experience of kennels /boarding and I was worried at first if my 6month pug Ralph would be ok and looked after. I cannot express how happy I was with my choice to leave him here. They really looked after him and treated him as his own. Really friendly and happy couple who love dogs and its very clear to see. I will never take my pug anywhere else now as this really is a fantastic environment and nothing like you fear, (being locked up in cages). Dogs roam around free in the land and sleep comfortably. I almost don't want to take Ralph away from here. Xx

5 From Danielle on

In the past we'd always put our Westie in kennels, then spent the whole holiday worrying about her locked in a cage. Never again! This time we were lucky to find Pat & Roger, who looked after her for the past week. They treated her as their own, and their own dogs welcomed her in too. Scooby, despite being a 13 yr old girl used to being surrounded by children not dogs, also settled in quickly & enjoyed the run of their large garden. We received text messages during our stay, reassuring us Scooby was happy, and for once we were able to fully relax. Scooby was well cared for & well fed. We would definitely use them again.

5 From Jamie & Debbie on

Hi, we have two dogs a Border Collie and a German Spits and they have stayed with Roger and Pat on many occasions within the past four years. we are very pleased with the love care they give our dogs and the freedom the dogs have within there large fenced garden, Very nice people to trust with your dogs.

From Alf & Rita Clarke on

We have been leaving Hetty with Pat & Roger for a number of years now, safe in the knowledge that she will be well looked after and treated as one of the family. Our new addition, Milly, joined Hetty this year and thoroughly enjoyed her stay & probably wore Roger out as she isn't fussy who throws her ball for her all day long! We would thoroughly recommend this home from home for dogs & Pat & Roger for their love & devotion to dogs.

5 From Lesley & Terry S on

For all those like me who spent hours worrying over their babies and boarding kennels you can stop now. This is NOT a boarding kennels but an extension of my 2 dog’s home. They have the freedom to play and the security of a cuddle from people who love and care for them. I can leave them safe in the knowledge that they will be happy and content. Would totally recommend to family and friends and to all those who truly love their dogs.

5 From Stephanie on

I used to be so worried about leaving my dogs when I went on holiday....that was until I found Tops holiday accomadation!! Now my dogs enjoy me going away because they get spoit rotten here, I can leave them and feel so relaxed and at ease knowing they are being treated like one of the family. Pat and Rodger really go above and beyond to make your dogs feel at home and I'm embarrased to say my dogs take full advantage of them. I wont even be on the plane and Pat will send me a picture of the dogs stretched out on the sofa feeling very much at home and wishing I would go away more often! I'm a veterinary nurse and have lots of clients I recommend here and every person has always said how happy their dogs have been and they would always use them again, you feel so relaxed that your dogs are in the best possible hands....I wouldnt be without them and I know my dogs definitely wouldnt be!! Thank you Tops Holiday Accommodation.

5 From Holly Stratford on

I have been leaving my dog here for the past 5 yrs and I would not leave him in any other kennels. He loves coming here cos its like home from home!!! he loves the freedom of running around in the garden areas but also the comfort at night of being in the home with his holiday family!! infact when he comes home he will sulk cos he has left his friends!!! I can go away happy knowing that he is happy and in a good,clean,safe environment with people who LOVE dogs.

From lorraine carpenter on

I can't recommend enough. They are real "dog people" that understand that owners love their animals as one of the family. They have looked after my dog on several occasions and I can now enjoy my holidays knowing my dog George is in safe and caring hands. I can honestly say that my dog loves it here and sulks when he has to come home!! I am so pleased I found them…they are both really lovely people and they LOVE dogs. Highly recommended!
