Here at 4 Little Paws we offer high quality, spacious and secure outdoor accommodation for rabbits and guinea pigs.
Our superior cage and hutch free timber outdoor rabbit boarding cabins are 10ft (3m) long allowing rabbits to safely play and exercise 24/7, whatever the weather. Each rabbit (or bonded pair / group) will stay in their very own cabin for the duration of their holiday.
Guinea pigs stay in 6ft hutches or a 4ft timber playhouse (May - September only) We can accommodate small and large groups of rabbits or guinea pigs. All boarding groups will be kept separately from other boarding groups.
You can rest assured that your little pet will receive a healthy diet, lots of exercise time, toys and above all lots of care and attention during its stay with us.
We will provide your rabbit or guinea pig with plenty of fresh meadow hay, and a varied and balanced selection of fresh herbs, forage and green vegetables daily. We ask that you bring your own dried food (pellets or muesli) to avoid any digestive upsets.
For rabbits, our secure cabins provide the opportunity to exercise in the included fully covered run area 24/7. Our cabins give plenty of room for hopping and binkying whatever the weather and have toys and tunnels included.
For guinea pigs our spacious 6ft hutches and playhouse offer plenty of room to stretch their little legs.
*As responsible boarders, we do not use runs on grass, as grass cannot be effectively cleaned or disinfected between guests, and would risk the transmission of bacteria, viruses and parasites*
All rabbits must have up to date (within the last 12 months) vaccinations for myxomatosis and RHD (aka VHD), and RHD2, and certificates must be shown on arrival.
We will provide access to a rabbit savvy vet whenever needed (at Dronfield Veterinary Practice).
All our accommodation is thoroughly cleaned between guests using high strength veterinary disinfectant, and steam. Our rabbit cabin runs have a built in floor, covered with hygienic cushioned vinyl flooring. We do not put boarding rabbits or guinea pigs on grass, as it is not possible to disinfect grass between customers, providing a potential health risk.
Please enquire if you have a pet with medical or special needs and we will do our best to accommodate them.
We will give your little pet daily health checks, and monitor their behaviour and food and water intake to ensure they remain happy and healthy whilst in our care.
Prices for outdoor rabbit boarding in our 10ft cabins start from £10 per night - see our website for full pricing details and options.
Prices for guinea pigs start at £7 per night.
Payment by cash, bank transfer, or PayPal.
We can provide grooming and claw clipping services upon request to our boarding customers, for a small charge.
We can also provide a pet taxi service, and a collection and drop off service for boarding pets.
We can offer long term, short term and day boarding services.
The boarding centre is based in Sutton Springs Wood, near Calow, Chesterfield, and is minutes away from J29A and J29 of the M1 and is ideally suited to cover Chesterfield, Sheffield and Rotherham, but of course we welcome customers from all over Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire and beyond.
Mon - Sat: 9am - 11am and 4pm - 6pm. All visitors strictly by appointment only, as the boarding facility is based at our family home.
