About our Home Boarding

Experienced dog owner I have bred and shown English Pointers and had 4 wonderful German Shepherd dogs in my life plus an assortment of mutts which have been a pleasure to have known I now specialise in the smaller dog who needs extra attention I am fully insured, licenced by Guildford Borough Council 5* rating and CRB checked


Guest dogs have a full run of the home and garden as I believe they enjoy being with us The garden is fully fenced and safe I will follow owners wishes with sleeping arrangements but they are welcome to sleep in my bedroom my boy sleeps on my bed and some little ones like to join him my guests settle in very quickly and seem to enjoy their holidays with us my boy is a very relaxed dog and welcomes his little friends to stay he shared his toys etc and can be known to have a good play game if a dog is shy or wants to just rest he is happy to leave them enjoy a sofa


I am at home with the dogs all the time except an odd quick trip to Waitrose the garden is fully fenced and dog proof I mainly walk in the woods and like dogs to be off lead with a good recall or if on not to pull We do sometimes meet deer and horses so cannot have prey chasers

Buddy has stayed with Joy a number of times now and is always well cared for and given lots of attention! He jumps out of the car and doesn't look back when running up to Joy. Regular updates and photos mean I'm never worried about how he is getting on. Would highly recommend Joy!

My 13 year old cairn terrier has had such a happy time staying with Joy and Crumble. Joy was so good in keeping me up to date, with how she was doing. So reassuring when you are a long way away ! She obviously enjoyed having the run of the house and garden, socialising with Crumble, and doing her own thing. She was obviously very content, and although happy to see me would have been content to stay rather than come home !! 😬

Our minature Yorkshire Terrier Lula loves her stays with Joy. We can enjoy our holiday knowing she will be happy and loved.

Joy looked after our beloved cockapoo for a week whilst we were on holiday. We were very worried about leaving her but Joy was brilliant at keeping us informed on a daily basis which was very reassuring. Our little dog had fun, was made to feel at home and has a new friend crumbly! Thank you Joy for taking great care of her, she can't wait to go back!
