Indoor animals, hamsters etc will be let out & provided with the exercise and attention they are used to at home.

Health & Hygiene:

vaccinations for Rabbits must be up to date & proof brought with you on booking in. Proof must be seen & animals must be in good health free from mites or worms.
We ask that you make sure your pet is in good health on day of booking in as we may have to refuse your pet if in ill health.
In the event of your pet becoming unwell during the stay here they will be taken to our local vet Damory in Blandford or to your own vet if just as close (an agreement form to be signed on booking in).

All pets will be health checked on booking in and twice daily whilst also being cleaned daily. All accommodation outside is disinfected after each animals stay, along with bowls, bottles etc.

Thank you both, yet again our African grey parrot Clio was so well looked after, I would strongly recommend you to anyone who needs to leave their pet with you both, for any reason, it made our holiday stress free, knowing he would be well looked after again.

Paula and Poppy have been wonderful when always looking after our guinea pigs Pilar and Bella. They have loved and cared for our little pigs for nearly eight years and although Pilar left us a few years ago they have looked after Bella with love and kindness. Whenever we have gone away it has been lovely to know that the care that Paula and Poppy give is completely from the heart. Paul and Poppy take the care of their guests with professional and personal respect. We would always leave our little friends with them and would recommend to others seeking that very special care and attention.

My 2 rabbits stayed with Paula and Poppy on two occasions in 2017. From the minute I met Paula I knew my bunnies would be happy (and so would I, leaving them there!) The hutches they stay in overnight are very large, with plenty of hopping space and secure in a shed. They are out in a run with plenty of toys during the day, which is their usual daily pattern. They are well handled which is also important to me. A great home from home for your bunny.

Excellent, our piggies had a great time. We'll be booking again the next time we're going away. Thanks again.

Paula and her team took care of my hamster for two weeks whilst I was on holiday and their care for my hamster was excellent.

5 From Chris Stockman on

Full marks to Paula and her family for their excellent small-pet care service which we have booked on more than one occasion for our hamster. Friendly, flexible and fairly priced, the care is affectionate and efficient. Paula is knowledgeable about hamsters and their needs, and clearly takes delight in accommodating them. I can thoroughly recommend this service.
