Hello, I am Christine and with my husband I run TLC Home Boarding & Daycare. For 20 years I loved working as a qualified veterinary nurse but in 2007 I decided to provide licensed home boarding. I have now been providing professional dog care for over 30 years. Tailored to your dog’s individual needs in a loving home. Happy dogs and peace of mind for you.
Our home is a spacious detached house with a large secure garden with many toys and activities or dogs can relax if they prefer. The dogs sleep indoors in our home where they are given comfortable beds but if they prefer and are allowed they are welcome to a sofa.
All dogs are walked twice daily unless advised otherwise. We tailor the length of walk to your dog’s needs. We have private fields where we can go for safe and stress free walks. We only walk a maximum of four dogs at a time so they receive a high level of care and attention. In addition to walks they can have numerous playtimes in the garden, brain games or they may prefer to have a snooze.
Health & Hygiene:
Dogs must be be up to date with their vaccinations including the extra Bordetella/Kennel cough vaccine. They also need to be up to date with wormers & flea prevention.These are requirements of a home boarding licence. I am experienced in administering medicines if required at no extra fee. Strictly following Covid-19 guidelines for professional pet businesses. We keep up to date with science based force free training to provide the very best care for your dog.
Home Boarding Prices
Home Boarding from £30 per day Day Care from £25 per day Discounts are available for dogs from the same household.

Reviews from Our Guests
TLC Home boarding is exactly what it is - Tender Loving Care for your dog within Christine and John's lovely home. Oscar adores Christine and is always happy to see her for daycare or a week's holiday. He always comes home happy and with a note telling you about his day which includes lovely country walks and playtime. Christine has a veterinary background and is fully insured. She is very caring, reliable, trustworthy, a really kind lady and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Couldn't be happier with TLC. A wonderful service where our working cocker Herbert is kept exercised and happy. He is always thrilled to be there and I always feel very relaxed about leaving him there whether it be for the day, a night or a weeks holiday. I would highly recommend them.
From Kathryn on
TLC Home boarding and day care is the best service you could wish for, for your dog. Reliable, homely, friendly, safe and most of all, fun and enjoyable. My dog is safely deposited in the morning with wags and wags of excitement and treats it as her second home. She is pictured as one of the black labs playing with all her friends. Chris is superb with her and with us and we never have to worry about how well she is cared for. Her wags say it all. She can't wait to run inside.

Chris is a superstar with our dogs. She is fully insured and has a veterinary background so I feel so reassured knowing she cares for my dogs when I am working. She never takes too many dogs at once, she knows what each dog likes and leaves awesome notes for clients when returning dogs home. Cannot recommend highly enough!!

Could not be happier with Chris and John looking after Elsie. Elsie has been going since 2010 and goes usually once a week and several times a year for a weekend or a week. She absolutely loves her doggy day care and comes home tired but very happy. We can also rely on her being loved and cuddled while we are away on holidays too. Chris sends her home with an update and has so many regular returning dogs we know Elsie has play mates she sees over and over again. Chris is very popular and trusted locally. She doesn't overbook so dogs get full and proper attention. Chris is 100% reliable and trustworthy. Highly highly recommended as a home from home for your dog.
