My name is Liz Knights, and I started my home boarding business in 2011. Having had dogs all my life, it was a natural route to take as I knew I could put my years of experience to good use. We pride ourselves at Oaklands in offering a safe, happy and loving environment to all our doggy guests, who become part of the family for their stay. Our aim is to provide a stress free holiday for both you and your dog and look forward to seeing you come back to us again. Oaklands Homeboarding for Dogs is fully licensed by South Norfolk District Council, licence number AB73 and i have recently been awarded a 5 star rating. Also I am CRB checked and have full insurance.
We are set in a large, safe and secured half acre garden surrounded by beautiful meadows, with miles of lovely country walks. Our doggy visitors, have full access to our home and garden during their stay with us. We can maintain any routine that you have in place at home, including feeding times, sleeping arrangements and exercise. In order for your dog to feel at home with us, we recommend you provide bedding, food and toys. If your dog also requires a crate, we can accomodate that too.
We give all our guests two long walks each day, and we also make time for play in the afternoon, after all they're on holiday too! I also appreciate older dogs may require shorter walks and at their own pace,we can accommodate that too.
Health & Hygiene:
We do ask that all our guests are up to date with their vaccinations, this includes kennel cough. Please note that we do not take uncastrated males. All dogs must also be up to date with flea and worming treatments.
Also offered is Day Care- A long day at work or other commitments, I can offer a day of company, long walks and play in our garden.

I have just collected my Parsons Jack from Liz after her second 3week stay while I'm visiting my son in the USA. Poppy olso has one day a week play day with with Liz and can't wait to get out of the car when we arrive, I'm sure that she would like to go everyday if possible because she has so much fun playing with other dogs.
Liz is a very caring lady and Poppy loves her.

Just felt l had to write a review for Oaklands Home Boarding. My dog Ella has been staying with Liz one day a week for several weeks now as l wanted to make sure she would be ok when l go on holiday in a few months time. Ella absolutely loves her day with Liz and drags Liz down the path to get into the beautiful garden where she has hours of fun. It has taken a great weight off my mind to know that while l am enjoying a break in the sun so will Ella be having a lovely time. I cannot thank Liz enough.Liz is so caring and thoughtful with Ella and has made her a more confident and therefore happier little dog. I highly recommend Oaklands. Home boarding is a much better environment for a dog that is used to living indoors than the usual type of kennels.
From Sally on
Boarders Response:Thank you so much for such a lovely review. It means such alot to me that Ella is happy and that Sally has taken the time to do a review. I very much hope that we can continue to build Ella's confidence and Sally can have a few more holidays in the sun.
Our 10 year old lab, Bailey, absolutely adores Liz & I wouldn't leave him with anyone else when we are away. They treat him as part of the family when he stays with them & it is clear when I drop him off that he feels very much at home there! Thank you Liz for always taking such great care of Bailey & for giving me peace of mind while we are away, we cannot recommend you enough.
From Catherine on
I'm so pleased I found Liz! Ted, my 10 month old Poochon, stays with Liz both during the day when I'm working and for overnight visits and his tail is always wagging when he arrives. Even better is how tired and content he is when I pick him up (see photo!). Liz has such a genuine love of dogs and is so good with Ted, really taking time to get to know him and make sure he settled in. It is such a relief to know he is so well looked after and welcomed into Liz's family (even when he steals their socks!). I would thoroughly recommend Liz.
From Helen Vallier on
I can not recommend liz enough, my girls love visiting her, my cavalier has a lot of health problems and has have medication every day, I feel very comfortable and relaxed with her taking care of ruby and bella. If you would like your beloved dog staying at a home from home then this is defiantly the place!
