About our Home Boarding

I am a retired Nurse. My home boarding establishment is fully licenced by Durham County Council and I hold an enhanced DBS and Canine First Aid certificates. I have two resident Samoyeds who are very friendly and love the company of other dogs. Your dog will live with us as one of the family - home from home.


Dogs boarding with myself have full access to the ground floor of my large detached property. There is also a large secure and private garden for play. Prospective boarders (and their owners!) must come and view the facilities and meet us prior to boarding. A trial overnight stay is recommended.


There is a large private and secure garden at the property for fun and frolics. I have dog agility equipment for my more active guests. I will also be regularly exercising the dogs in the countryside and on the beaches. Although I take most breeds, all dogs must be well behaved, friendly and fully house trained.

Health & Hygiene:

I am fully licenced and have all the necessary safety/fire safety procedures and equipment in place. All dogs must be friendly, family dogs - house trained and well socialised. They must also be neutered and over 12 months of age. Clients must provide up to date records of their dog's vaccinations including kennel cough.

Home Boarding Prices

I charge £25 per day (additional £10 per day on Bank Holidays). Currently £18 for a trial overnight stay.
For further details please visit my web-site. and/or facebook page

Other Services

If necessary I can collect and return your pet/s in my vehicle for an additional charge.

We left our wheaten terrier, Archie with Sylvia and Sonya for almost 2 weeks . First time I have ever used such. Service and was understandably nervous. Sylvia put me at ease from day 1. She clearly loves dogs and is keen to ensure they are as comfortable and feel at home. Sylvia sent me info and pics each day and Archie loved it and was incredibly well looked after. Archie can't wait for us to go away again !!! I am really grateful to Sylvia for her very welcoming and professional service and would recommend her highly

Buzz our Beagle has just returned from a fabulous stay with Sylvia and Sonia this weekend. We cannot recommend The Samoyed Hotel enough; we visited back in June before he boarded and knew he would be well looked after. Sylvia is a professional, friendly lady, with a lovely caring attitude and she ensured we were informed of her background and asked lots of questions with regard to Buzz's routines and behaviours. During his stay we were sent lots of pictures and videos of him and Sonia having nothing but fun! I felt very happy leaving him and hope Buzz made a good impression as I know we will want him to stay again. Thanks for everything Sylvia x

My whippet, Willow, spent nearly 5 weeks at The Samoyed Hotel and loved every minute of it. Sylvia, the owner, made it into a home from home for her, and had lots of facilities, toys and extras. See the picture of her relaxing in the garden! Willow went on lots of varied walks and just became one of the family. She will miss her new friends now she is back home! Sylvia kept me updated while I was away with pictures and messages. I felt absolutely confident leaving my beloved dog at the Samoyed Hotel, and will definitely be asking if she can stay in the future. Sylvia is very friendly and efficient, so has all the professional aspects covered, but is wonderfully warm and welcoming. I felt Willow was really cared for well and was kept active and entertained. Highly recommended!
