This is the original Hoppy Holidays and was established in 2002.
Aswell as doing boarding for rabbits and guinea pigs,Diane also offers a pet sitting and dog walking service. Visits to small holdings to care for chickens and ducks etc are also a service offered.
Animal care is her passion. Diane understands how important their care and welfare is to you the owner. She provides a very personal and flexible service aimed to help you and of course....the wonderful animals.
If she is available and able to do the job......she will!
Diane has a wealth of experience in caring for rabbits and guinea pigs and is very quick in getting to know their little personalities.
Dust extracted hay is always used, and fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit are available daily.
When she is not caring for animals, she can be found fundraising for the RSPCA or Windwhistle Warren, helping out at a rabbit and guinea pig rescue or busy helping other owners with queries and problems.
A member of the Rabbit Welfare Association since 2002 and also the year in which Hoppy Holidays was established. Diane is also an active member of a couple of UK based rabbit forums, Rabbits United and Pledge a Pound.
NEW FOR 2012. REIKI HEALING FOR SMALL ANIMALS. Prices upon request.
All Hoppy Holiday's hutches are made from start to finish by Diane's husband. Bespoke hutches can be made upon request and have a 10 year guarantee. They are very solid and secure and I guarantee you will not find anything as robust as these in any pet shop. You describe what type of hutch you want, the chances are it can be built.
All accommodation is handmade by her husband Bob. It is all very spacious, safe and very secure. Separate cleaning utensils are used for each resident.
The hutches are 8' x2' x 2' and are fitted with ramps to make into one huge two tier hutch.
House rabbits can also be accommodated. Hoppy Holidays trys to offer a home from home service. Watching tv, interacting with Diane and generally being able to have a similar experience to that of being in their own home. This service is only open available to one or two rabbits at any one time.
Toys and tunnels are provided to offer stimulation and encourage exercise. Always plenty going around around to keep residents occupied.
All rabbits must be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to their stay. Vaccination certificates need to be brought along.
There is no access to grass so there is less risk of cross contamination. Wood shavings and sawdust are not used either. Both of which can cause respiratory problems.
All accommodation is cleaned out daily and fully disinfected between guests.
Rabbits and guinea pigs with special needs and or disabilities are happily catered for. Diane has many years experience in this area. Medication can be administered.
If your pet should become ill during its stay, Diane will seek veterinary attention as soon as possible. Any fees incurred will be included in the final cost and payable to Hoppy Holidays.
Prices upon request. Payment is by cash or cheque.
A 10% booking fee is required.
Grooming and claw clipping service is available.
Prices upon request.
As Hoppy Holidays only do boarding on a very small scale, there is much more attention given to the residents. Cuddles and kisses are at no extra cost!
Diane also does dog walking, pet sitting and small holding care in the local area.
Clients have travelled from as far as Shropshire and Cornwall to have their bunnies boarded with Hoppy Holidays.
Pet sitting, dog walking and small holding care is also available, usually within a radius of 6 miles, but can travel further afield if required. Prices upon request for these services.
Hoppy Holidays is open 51 weeks of the year. This does include Christmas and New Year. Double time is charged only on 25th and 26th December. Normal rates apply on other bank holidays.
