About our Small Pet Boarding

We board: RabbitsGuinea PigsHamsters, Mice etc.

Hoppy Holidays is owned and managed by Keith and Jacqueline Hitchen. Jacqueline has owned a variety of small pets since childhood and Keith has over sixteen years experience of looking after our own small pets. We currently have small pets of our own. Our experience means we are knowledgeable about small animals and understand that they are very much part of the family. That is why we treat each pet as one of our own while they are with us.

Accommodation:

RABBITS AND GUINEA PIGS
Our spacious hutches are situated in our two cabin style sheds. The sheds are to the rear of the house in our enclosed and shady garden and are away from public view. Both sheds have windows so let in natural light and are fitted with power for lighting and heating. We have fourteen hutches altogether, seven in each shed.

Nine hutches measure 6x2x2ft which we use for single and pairs of rabbits and can be used for groups of three depending on the size of the rabbits. We also use these for guinea pig groups. Four of our hutches measure 5x2x2ft which we use for single or pairs of guinea pigs. We also have a 4x2x2ft hutch that we use for single guinea pigs.

Our hutches are of high quality. The hutches are all on one level as older and less mobile rabbits and some guinea pigs can find ramps a problem. Each hutch has a dark room for hunkering down.

HAMSTERS, GERBILS AND MICE
Very tiny pets are usually brought to us in their own enclosures from home to reduce stress and are kept in the house where they can be cosy and warm in a quiet space. If getting your pet to us in their own enclosure is a problem we do have a lovely glass gerbilarium which can easily house up to five gerbils and we also have a spare hamster enclosure. Please check for availability when booking.

RATS AND DEGUS
We realise it can be tricky bringing a rat or degu enclosure from home because of their height as they are designed to accommodate these animals' natural need to climb and jump. We have two enclosures measuring 28"w X30"h X17"d that will accommodate a single or pair of rats or degus. The enclosures also have accessories such as hammocks, pods and tubes although you are more than welcome to bring your small pet/s own accessories and toys if you prefer. Please check for availability when booking.

ADDITIONAL ENCLOSURES
We also have four enclosures for use in the house. Two measure 120cm which we tend to use for guinea pig pairs or a single small breed of rabbit. Two measure 100cm which we tend to use for single guinea pigs. There is limited space in the house so please check for availability when booking.

SAFETY
Please note that all pets are housed separately or with their bonded pair or group.

The sheds are secure and double locked at night and when we are out on errands. Both sheds have security lighting. 24 hour CCTV is in operation monitoring the entire garden and exterior of our property.

Pets are not left in outdoor pens overnight or if we are out on errands.

We have separate enclosures for use in case of illness or fighting.

Our business is fully insured.

This is our full time business and we are here a majority of the time to ensure your pets are safe, happy and healthy.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to come and look before you book please let us know and we can organise a convenient time.

Exercise:

It is vital for rabbits and guinea pigs to spend time out of the hutch. Your pet will have ample opportunities to play in a secure pen in our enclosed and shady garden.

We replaced our pens last Summer and now have some lovely wooden pens with predator proof mesh. They are interchangeable and can be made larger for bigger bunnies or rabbit groups. They have covers to protect them from downpours.

We also have some lovely sturdy wooden shelters than guinea pig guests just love to hunker down in.

When the weather is bad, pets can take it in turns to exercise on the floor of the shed which is a lovely big space for your pets to play in. We have a huge array of toys, tunnels, agility equipment and boxes to keep them entertained and mentally stimulated whilst also encouraging natural behaviours like gnawing and foraging.

We encourage exercise for our tiniest pets too and provide exercise balls, climbing toys, wheels, tubes and wooden toys.

If your pet has a particular toy, blanket or item that they are particularly attached to then please feel free to bring it along.

You will have an opportunity to let us know your pet's full requirements beforehand. Of course, if they are happy being handled, they get lots of cuddle time too!

Health & Hygiene:

RABBIT VACCINATIONS
All rabbits must have up to date Myxi and VHD 1 & 2 vaccinations and owners must be able to show us their vaccination cards before their pets are left with us. This is important for the health and welfare of your own rabbit/s and our other guests and unfortunately we are unable to board rabbits that are not up to date with their vaccinations.

MEDICATION
We are more than happy to provide medication prescribed from your vet if needed. Please make sure you make us aware of any medical conditions beforehand and provide us with full details including how and when medication is administered and how it is to be stored before your leave your pet with us. We have our own medication forms so we have a clear record of when medication was given. We provide regular updates of progress too.

HUTCH HYGIENE
Keeping our furry guests happy and healthy is our priority. Enclosures are spot cleaned daily, litter trays are changed daily and pets accommodation is also given regular full clean outs.

Our hutches and enclosures are steam cleaned in between guests. We use environmentally and pet friendly products. We do not use bleach or bacterial wipes.

All cleaning cloths, towels, blankets, soft toys and so on are laundered using non-biological washing powder to minimise the risk of skin irritations.

I highly recommend Hoppy Holidays for your small pet boarding needs. They obviously have a deep love for our furry friends, excellent accommodation and the regular message and photo updates during my boy piggie Patch's stay with them really put me at ease. He was boarded for 3 weeks, the longest he's ever been away, and I was concerned about leaving him for that long, but there was no need. He'd obviously been well looked after and loved in my absence! Jakki and Keith are excellent fur baby sitters and I'm grateful to have found such a good environment for Patch for both short and long stays.

5 From Dawn on

Boarders Response:Hi Dawn, I do apologise that it has taken so long to respond to your lovely review here on Find Pet Boarding. I know you left lovely feedback elsewhere which I responded to promptly and thank you for leaving it here also. Patch is an adorable guinea pig and an absolute joy to have around. He is more than welcome to come back any time for a long or short stay! Thanks once again for your custom :)

Our mini lop bunny Ted has just had a fabulous 3 day stay in what I can only describe as 5 star accommodation! I was majorly impressed with the facilities. Large spacious indoor hutch but also outdoor space (weather permitting!) There was even a little toy waiting for him to help him to settle in! Jackie and Keith are so welcoming. We were specifically asked about which nuggets and hay Ted usually has so that his diet remained unchanged. A very personal service. My 7 year old daughter and I really enjoyed getting a daily WhatsApp update and she thought it was absolutely wonderful when Ted appeared on Facebook! (All with our prior written consent of course!) We can't wait to bring Ted back to Hoppy Holidays the next time that we are in Leeds. Massive thanks to Jackie and Keith for providing outstanding care as if Ted was their own. And thank you for accommodating us at such short notice - we were very lucky as this is a very popular place (and now we know why!)

5 From Lizzie Hutchinson on

Boarders Response:Hi Lizzie, apologies for not responding sooner to this. I know you have left lovely feedback elsewhere and I responded to that so am really happy to find you have also left a review on Find Pet Boarding. What can I say about Ted? He is fantastic! We loved having him here and we were so glad that we could squeeze him in at short notice. Thank you for bringing him and it would be fantastic to see you all again next time you are in Leeds :)

We left our guinea pigs here for a week and were very impressed. Jackie and Keith took very good care of our babies and they loved it there as well. They are very friendly and the hutch sizes are great! Our piggies loved it there, will definitely be returning.

5 From Berta Kar on

Boarders Response:Hi Berta, We loved looking after the boys for you. We shall look forward to seeing you next time and would love to have the boys back again!

My hamster Olivia is just back from her stay with the lovely Jackie and Keith where she was very well looked after. Loved receiving updates and pictures of her every few days while I was away, she seemed to be having a great time - even getting involved with the Royal Wedding celebrations ;). Thanks Jackie and Keith - great service!

5 From Lynsey Johnston on

Boarders Response:Thanks for your review Lynsey. Olivia is welcome back any time. She is a hamster superstar!

My guinea pigs mary and joseph have stayed with keith and jackie many times and they received 5* service and when joseph was ill they looked after him like their own pet.they texted me how they were. the hutch are large and clean and receive 1 to 1 care and daily go outside in a large pen for exercise. next week they will be looking after my hamster I know she will get 5* care.

My daughters rabbits (Ringo& Polly) were very well cared for!! We will use this lovely hotel again!!!

Boarders Response:Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for your review of our service. We really enjoyed looking after your guineas and hope to see you again soon! :)

They were exceptionally special with my rabbit, sent me messages and pictures to keep me updated. They have spacious hutches and even gave him a little Christmas present! Thank you Jackie and Keith.

5 From valentina on

We went on our holidays and so did our rabbits. Toby and demelza ,jasper and daisey and "old boy Dylan". They were looked after like they were there own!! The rabbits enjoyed the large new cages, the outdoor runs in the daytime .dylan being an old boy has special needs and medication ,which was carefully attended to . We would recommend hoppy holidays and will use again. Many thanks. Nick and Helen. And the bunnies.
