About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea Pigs

I offer pet boarding for small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises) for holidays in Fareham, Hampshire.

I have had many years of personal experience looking after rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises.

I have looked after rabbits, (long haired and short), guinea pigs,(long haired and short) and tortoises, as part of my boarding service.

Accommodation:

- Accommodation is fully enclosed in a well ventilated shed.
- Hutches and accommodation are protected from bad weather.
-The guest shed, as well as the residents shed is locked securely every night to ensure the safety of all animals in our care. All windows are shut.
- Hutches are all covered with blankets at night, so that all animals feel safe and secure.
- Any animals who live together will not be separated, we understand how important it is to keep companion animals together. They will stay in the same hutch together. They will also play in the same run together during the day.
- Animals who are not from the same family/live together will not be put together under any circumstances, this can lead to aggression, fighting, and passing of disease. This includes tortoises who do not know each other.
- Depending on weather conditions, all animals are exercised daily in runs on a outside area.
- In the event of rain, animals runs are covered over with waterproof sheeting, so guests can continue to enjoy the outside but stay dry.
- All animals have daily interaction and handling.
- Any fruit and vegetables are provided by us on a daily basis depending on your pets' personal requirements.
- I am located less than a mile from a local veterinary practice with which we are registered.
- Any food such as hay, vegetables and pellets are given daily as requested by you.
We are very aware of the dangers of overheating for any animal, big or small, so all animals will go out first thing in the morning, into their runs to ensure they do not overheat(in the summer).

They will all have fresh water changed daily (and topped up during the day if needed) and fresh hay given at least twice daily.

Exercise:

- Animals are allocated spacious housing and a run, which are used exclusively by the individual animals.
- All runs and hutches/cages are thoroughly cleaned during their visit aswell as after every visit to prevent the spread of infection. All hutches are sprayed with a pet friendly pet disinfectant between use.
Guinea pigs, rabbits and tortoises will go in the garden in a run all day everyday, where they will beable to have access to hay, water and toys.
In the case of bad weather such as rain, unless you are not happy with them being out in the rain, we can cover their runs with waterproof sheeting where they can still enjoy the outside facilities without getting wet. If torrential rain occurs animals will be put back into the warmth of their hutch. All animals will be back in the safety of their hutches before it gets dark (all year round).

Health & Hygiene:

-Rabbits need to have vaccinations up to date, both
myxomatosis and VHD(yearly combi vaccine). You will need to bring their vaccination certificate/s when you bring your rabbit/s to stay.
- Water bottles, bowls, litter trays & toys are cleaned on a daily basis.
- Hutches and cages are cleaned on a regular basis.
-If you're pet/s need any kind of medication you will need to let us know before your pets stay, you will need to fill out a medication agreement form. This is to give me permission to give your pet their medicine, how much and when to give their medicine to them.
-If we need to take your pet to the vet we will take them to our local vet, which is located 10 minuits down the road. You will be required to fill out a veterinary authorization form, which will give me permission to take your pet to the vet.

Small Pet Boarding Prices

- Rabbits: £5.00 per day per single rabbit or £7.00 for two rabbits per day (where 2 rabbits are sharing a hutch)
- Guinea Pigs: £4.00 per day per single guinea pig or £6.00 for two guinea pigs per day (where they are sharing a hutch).

Payment is to be made in cash or cheque on arrival. If this is your pets first stay with us, you will be required to pay a non refundable deposit. Until this is paid a space has not been secured for you.

If for any reason you need to cancel then please let me know beforehand (as soon as you know) as I may have to turn somebody else away who was looking for the same or similar dates to you.

If you have paid a non refundable deposit and need to cancel this is non refundable, no matter what the reason, how long ago the booking was made, or how long before the boarding was due to take place.

Other Services

Aswell as the lovely reviews on find pet boarding, you can also look at my website where there are many lovely recommendations from people who have already used my services.
There are also more photos of my guests, and more photos of the garden area and guests accommodation.

We can groom your pets fur and bath them if requested by you, you would need to bring any pet shampoo for us to use on them. Bathing costs £3.00 per animal. Brushing is no extra.
We cannot cut your pets claws, if you need your pets claws to be cut or trimmed before their stay then please get a vet or somebody experienced to do it for you.

I can send you photos of your pet while you are on holiday, whether you have access to a computer or not you will be able to see the photos when you arrive back from your holiday. This is at no extra cost.
If you do not have an e-mail and have a mobile, I can

Comments from Our Guests

"If you're in any way nervous of leaving your precious pets with a stranger then worry no longer with Julia. From the moment i made the enquiry she was very reassuring and understanding about any concerns and worries you may have. She allowed me to have a look at where the rabbits would stay and asked lots of useful questions for her records. She was very quick at responding to emails and during the actual stay I couldn't of asked for more. She kept in touch and sent lovely photos of my rabbits to show how they had settled in. She made sure they had the food and comforts they were used to which all helped with me feeling at ease. When I collected them they were sunning themselves in the run and fully relaxed. It was great to see how many other happy bunnies and guinea pigs there were too. Would not hesitate to recommend. "

"Dear Julia, We want to thank you for the excellent care you provided for Dexter. He has always been happy with you and got to know you so well. Your care and attention is clearly visible as he always returns to us content, calm and well looked after. Thank you for bailing us out when we needed you at short notice and all the lovely photos. We recommend you highly to anyone looking for someone to care for and love their pet, like they do. Thanks for the information about the new VHD vaccine...you got to us before the Vet !!😊 Best wishes Pam and Barry Cullen "

"We highly recommend Julia's pet boarding! Julia is meticulous in checking all of the little details including times for daily feeds and vaccination records and makes sure that your pet's daily routine is disrupted as little as possible. We loved receiving photos and an update of how our rabbits were getting on while we were on holiday. Our bunnies were treated to a whole variety of fresh veggies each day and they enjoyed spending all day in the runs. Julia is really knowledgeable and her passion and enthusiasm for taking care of her guests shines through every time we visit. We have always felt that our pets are in safe hands with Julia and our rabbits have always been content and relaxed when we returned to pick them up. Thank you very much Julia!"

From Keri and George Blanchard on

"Thanks for looking after our two tortoises Mikey and Leo whilst we enjoyed our holiday. Tortoises can be a little tricky to care for and I was put at ease immediately knowing Julia had tortoises of her own. I was pleased to know that they spent the days outside in a safe and enclosed run and were then put back in the house at night safe and warm. We really appreciated the mid week update and photos, my son wasn't expecting this and he loved seeing them enjoying their holiday too. Many thanks again, we'll be in touch for the next holiday."

"Thank you Julia for taking such good care of my daughter's rabbit, Pancakes, while we were on holiday. I was very impressed with the "admin" before our holiday, all very thorough and organised. The night hutches were clean and spacious as were the day runs. We loved receiving the email and photos midweek showing us how settled and happy Pancakes was with her holiday accommodation. Anyone looking for small pet boarding need look no further - Julia comes highly recommended."

"Beyond impressed with the service Julia provided for my bun, Ramona. This was the first time we had left her with non-family members so we were naturally a little bit anxious, but all of our questions were answered and Julia accommodated to her needs brilliantly. Ramona is partially sighted and is usually kept indoors, and the space that is set up for the rabbits at night is perfectly sheltered, safe and warm. When we picked Ramona up after our holiday, she came home very relaxed and happy, and we even discovered she had a new favourite toy thanks to her stay (we immediately purchased a cat tunnel for her). We would definitely bring her back again if and when we next go away. Thank you Julia, and thank you for the dorkiest picture ever of my bunny - we love this! "

"Our precious bunnies Holly and Rowan and degus Tucah and Ricah had a wonderful holiday with Julia and we will definitely be booking up with her again. Julia is very friendly, organised and knowledgeable and while we were away she kept us informed with emails and photos as to how they were all doing. This was particularly reassuring as one of our bunnies is prone to colic and needed extra monitoring and potentially special care. The accommodation for rabbits is ideal with spacious indoor hutches and outdoor covered runs. Highly recommended!"

"Just want to say a big thank you to Julia for taking such good care of our 2 long haired guinea pigs Itchy and Scratchy over the summer. Julia was very welcoming and was happy to show us around the accommodation that our guinea pigs would be staying in. All the hutches were very clean and all the animals had large runs to play in and were clearly very happy. Julia was very professional and asked lots of questions about how we wanted our guinea pigs to be looked after and their individual needs. Having our guinea pigs boarding with Julia just took all the hassle out of going away. In previous years I have asked friends to look after them, but after having to go through all the aggravation of moving the hutch, run etc on the day before going away I realised this year that just dropping them off at Julia’s where she had excellent accommodation already waiting for them, was a far better option – she even emailed photos to us of the guinea pigs whilst we were away! We will definitely be using Julia again for subsequent holidays and would recommend her to anyone. Thanks again Julia. "

"Just to say a huge thank you for looking after Spike, Sooty and Sweep for the last 2 weeks. They have come home looking fantastic and well cared for as usual and very happy. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for someonre to care for their pets whilst they are away. Thanks again Julia and see you next time x x"
