About our Home Boarding

Paws-A-While offers an ideal home from home experience for your beloved canine friend, who will be treated as part of the family.
If you are looking for someone to take care of your dog while you go to work, have a holiday or want a day out then we are the ideal choice - providing peace of mind that your dog will be well cared for and receive lots of attention in a loving home environment.

All dogs have full use of our secure garden, outside studio, large kitchen and conservatory, fully equipped with comfy dog friendly sofas.
There is plenty of space for them to run and play, or simply to curl up after a nice walk for a nap.
Normally dogs sleep in the conservatory on beds or sofas, although other options may be possible.


We are situated 5-mins walk from the golden sandy beaches at Branksome Dene, an ideal playground for dogs.
Your dog will enjoy two walks a day (minimum 1 hour) on the beach and chines or maybe a short car trip away to the heath or forest. We aim to make the walks as interesting and stimulating as possible, depending on your dog's requirements.
We go out in all weathers and have a big pile of towels to wipe muddy paws or to dry fur after a swim in the sea.

Health & Hygiene:

We ask that all dogs are fully up to date with their vaccinations and will ask to see certificates. Booking forms and terms and conditions will be supplied so that we can obtain full details of your dog, including your regular vet.
We are happy to administer medicines on your behalf if these are supplied.
