About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea Pigs

I have been fascinated for many years with animal behaviour, which has lead me on a long but interesting road to why do our animals behave this way and can I improve their lives? With the recent times of our own lockdowns, one thing is very clear WE ALL NEED OUR FREEDOM AND THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE. Our pet's freedom has become more and more restricted so I feel it has become our duty to provide an enriching environment based on their individual needs giving them a chance to exercise their innate instincts.


Rabbits and guinea pigs can be kept securely indoors at night time and go out into their runs during the day. Hutches are spacious, clean, cosy and dry. Hutches are cleaned daily and disinfected thoroughly between guest change over.

Runs have shade, tunnels, litter trays, and an outdoor hideaway. Rabbit runs are on lino, as recommended by the Rabbit Welfare Association Fund, to help stop cross-infection.

Our deluxe indoor rabbit room is available for house rabbits, book early to avoid disappointment.

Different species are kept as far away from each other as possible.


All guests have at least 4 hours of exercise per day whether in an indoor or outdoor run. All runs are on concrete or lino to help with cross-infection.

Doggie Daycare at Kirby Bellars Pet Services offers a professional, insured and caring service. We will collect your dog or dogs from your home, play, exercise.

Health & Hygiene:

Guests have a routine health check each day. We can keep you up to date with text/email or follow your pets holiday on Facebook.

Hutches are cleaned daily and disinfected weekly or at every guest change over.

All animals are to be vaccinated and wormed if required.

Fantastic taxi service for a dog coming into rescue. Super, friendly but professional service, quick with excellent rates too. We can’t thank Jo enough for stepping in at the very last minute to help us out. We will certainly use her again and will recommend her to others. Top class🐶🐾🐾

Thank you Jo for looking after our furbaby. He loves his walks and Jo is very trustworthy and extremely helpful in all ways.

I just like to say a massive thank you to Jo and everyone at hopping mad pet service for looking after Chester while I was away. It was Chesters 3rd holiday stay and he loves it. The care taken to look after Chester is first class and I highly recommend hopping mad pet service. I also love the updates and picture as they let me know he's happy while I'm away and I'll be booking Chester in again as soon as I book my holiday for next year. Also I have to say what a lovely lady Jo is. Thank you again for taking special care of my Rabbit Chester. See you next year Pennie Argent x

From Pennie Argent on

I can thoroughly recommend Jo, a very personable lady who is clearly passionate about all the pets in her care. Jo is very happy to show you around so you can see the various accommodation on offer before you book and I felt very reassured seeing the resident and guest rabbits very content. My two bunnies have definitely been well looked after, thank you Jo.

From Sandie on

Was delighted with care and attention given to our two rabbits and indeed to us with regular photos and updates. I would highly recommend Jo as an excellent carer and a lovely person and looking forward to seeing her later in the year

Fabulous. As a possessive, obsessed bunny mum, I wanted daily updates & photos, & Joanna was happy to oblige. She's a friendly, cheerful lady who put my mind at ease & I would happily leave my four fluffy children at Hopping Mad again.

Having got our 2 Guinea Pigs in August, for my daughter (8,) this was the first time we had been on Holiday and were apprehensive about leaving them. We were really impressed with the comments on Jo's pet boarding page and booked to arrange a visit. From the first telephone call, to meeting Jo, the time taken with the initial visit, to settling in Woody & Chips, to updates via e-mail all helped to put us at ease and show how much Jo cares. A home from home and we will definitely be using Jo again. Thanks

This is a bunny hotel with 5*'s!!! Nemo our house bunny had his own indoor room which he loved! While chocy and rocky had a spacious double hutch with run! Jo kept us updated with pics of the boys having fun! She even knew their personalities! We enjoyed our holiday with the peace of mind that the boys were enjoying theirs!! Will definitely be booking again!!

We have recently returned from holiday and while we were away we left our two bunnies Snowy and Cara with Jo. First time we have used Jo and was very impressed with how caring she was with the kids and how knowledgeable she was on everything to do with them. I don't think they were fussed about coming home with us after being with Jo. Will certainly use Jo again and would recommend her.

5 From Mrs Sue Carr on

Dear Jo Thanks so much to you, and your sister, for looking after our guinea pigs while we were away for two weeks. They'd clearly been so well looked after; as they are still just a few months old, we could see they'd really grown! I shall certainly recommend your small pet lodgings to my friends and the boys will be back for another stay! From Caroline and Emily

Thank you, Jo, for taking such good loving care of our two guinea pigs, Cocoa and Tinsel, for 3 and a half weeks; the regular updates were really appreciated. We hope to stay again and highly recommend Hopping Mad Pet Boarding. Julie & Tom

Thank you so much for taking such good care of Sugar and Spice. I was lovely for my daughter to see the updates whilst we were away and see that they were being so well looked after. Would highly recommend Hopping Mad Pet Boarding. Sugar and Spice will definitely be making a return visit next time they need a holiday. Thanks

5 From Liz on

Thank you so much for looking after Chester while I was away. The up dates were great and put my mind a rest that Chester was happy and enjoying himself. I will be booking him in again as soon as we sort out our holiday for next year. I fully recommend hopping mad pet boarding. Thank you Jo for taking care of Chester. It was lovely to meet someone who love rabbits as much as I do. Pennie XX
