About our Home Boarding

Solo Pet Services is licensed by The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council with a Five Star Rating to provide dog boarding. Full public liability insurance, Disclosure and Barring certificate (DBS formerly CRB check) & excellent references.

'Solo' was developed to provide dog boarding for dogs that do not wish to be in the company of other dogs and for customers who want an individual, caring and professional service for their pets.

Three dogs can be boarded together but only if they come from the same family.

Dogs need to be over 1 years old and able to settle and sleep through the night. A trial night is required for dogs that have not previously boarded.

Growing up on a farm has given me good practical knowledge, skill & confidence with animals. I have lived with both cats & dogs, however I am currently pet free which allows me to offer an exclusive service for your pet.

I have trained in animal First Aid and I qualified with a national charity as a Pet Bereavement Support worker.

I have a diploma in relaxation techniques, a helpful asset when dealing with animals.


My home and garden have been inspected and approved by the Metropolitan Council. They provide a safe, secure and comfortable environment for your dog to relax in.

Many owners prefer their dogs to be in a home from home environment whilst they are on holiday with all the company, play & attention they would normally receive. A detailed plan is made with owners of their pets requirements so that routines remain as close to their home experience as possible.


A lovely park, open countryside and woods are within a 5 minute walk of my home. I have a garden for play and enrichment. Exercise requirements are always discussed and planned with owners to ensure your dog receives the best quality experience whilst you are away.

Dogs are individuals with individual needs, likes and dislikes. This is why we love them!

Health & Hygiene:

It is an essential part of the Dog Boarding License that all dogs are fully vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas and that evidence is provided. This establishes a safe and healthy environment for your pet.

Medicines can be administered and I am able to provide care for more elderly visitors.

Solo pet services is registered with two veterinary practices within my area, however details of your regular practice will be taken and you will always be closely consulted if any treatment is required.

Helen has looked after our poodle a number of times. In fact 'look after' is not the right phrase. Helen makes the dog in her care a part of her home and has a genuine affection for her charges. The proof is that Ellie our poodle is always very pleased to stay with Helen and greets her enthusiastically. We can leave her with complete peace of mind, knowing that she will be loved and cared for as we would ourselves. I cannot recommend Helen too highly.

5 From Paul on

Helen is absolutely fantastic! We are nearby and nothing has ever been too much trouble, Helen undertakes a first home visit to meet your animal and ensure you see her registration details and from that moment you know she is brilliant with pets. We tried a number of other individuals before finding Helen and none came near her standard of looking pet care

5 From Chris and Natalie on

Our teenage tom-cat greatly appreciated Helen's punctuality and friendliness when serving his daily meal. So much so, he brought her a present on the last day.

5 From David on

I was deeply contented staying at Solo pet services as I was allowed on the sofa and I was fed cauliflower which I love, I would def recommend Solopet services to other pooches.

5 From Harry, a Chinese crested powder puff on

Helen of Solo Pet services is simply wonderful with our much loved Jack Russell Terrier. As soon as you step into her home we feel relaxed and we know that Miles will be well cared for in every detail. We can go away with peace and ease of mind, knowing that Helen is both capable and caring. I cannot recommend Solo Saltaire Pet Services highly enough.
