I have been boarding small pets for a number of years. I have always had pets of my own, at present I have two rabbits who live outdoors, sooty who is eleven, and who enjoy's munching our garden, and libby, a Dutch rabbit rescue, she is nine years of age , and Henry my indoor Netherland bunny, who is also a rescue bunny, he is around seven,
I have several outdoor hutches, these are large with two of them having attached runs. Inside my bunny house shed I have three indoor rabbit cages and two large hutches's suitable for two rabbits. All hutches are large, have cushioned non slip flooring for added warmth and cleanliness. Hutches are spot cleaned everyday. When vacated hutches are disinfected, and cleaned out ready for next occupants. During pets stay all hutches will have hay, sawdust and litter trays. Hutches are spot cleaned daily, fresh hay and sawdust supplied, Fresh veg given daily, I do ask you bring pets own dried food, as each pet has different food, and it would be harmful to change their dry food.
All pets are exercised daily in their run allocated just for them during their stay. They will have wooden tunnel to hide in, and hayrack attached to run. During hot weather shade will be provided both by hessian beach mats placed over top of run, and a large parasol is also used to shade from sun.
Health & Hygiene:
I do ask for bunnies to be vaccinated against myxomatosis and VHD. ( Please bring proof of up to date vacs ) Rabbits that have signs of snuffles I am sorry I cannot board. I do apply fly strike to all bunnies during their stay, (all pets bottoms are checked daily, and wiped clean if necessary)
Small Pet Boarding Prices
Prices are charged from the day you bring your pet, to the day of collection.
Claw clipping and grooming is done free of charge, if i feel pet would benefit from this treatment. Collection of pet can be arranged for small fee to cover fuel. Elderly pets that would benefit from staying in their home can be visited daily, I will clean up after them, and give their daily feed. Prices negotiable.
I recommended Bobtail 200%. My two rabbits Belle and Fletcher spent a week there few months back and are boarding again for the weekend. The facility is very clean, organised and bunnies came home without any issues Diane makes sure they are sheltered from heat and the cold. They get to spend time on her manicured lawn. All round a happy customer.

Our two rabbits were well looked after during their three day stay in April. They had never been boarded before, but they were fine and I would not hesitate to have Diane look after them again.

Our Guinea pigs had a lovely holiday here in August, they appeared well cared for and their accommodation was lovely and clean. Would definitely recommend.

Both our rabbits (Tufty & Munch) came home with lovely shiny coats & were very happy. Dianne treats them like her own rabbits. Lovely and clean hutches, cages and the outside area's. Would definitely use again. Thank you Diane for taking such good care of them.

Excellent, friendly service. We have used Bobtail on a couple of occasions recently and would not hesitate to use them again. Diane is one in a million, looked after our guinea pigs as if they were her own. Highly recommend them.

I would highly recommend Bobtail to anyone with small pets, we left our 2 degus's Olga and Milka at Bobtails and they went above and beyond what we could have asked for! The care and attention they were given was fantastic. A lovely touch was keeping us updated how they were getting on while we were away! Thank you very much Bobtails and we will be using you again!

my indoor rabbit Harvey, is very fussy and likes alot of fuss. I was happy to leave him at bobtail, ( I viewed several first) and would recommend bobtail to rabbit owners, they are very well looked after, and you can enjoy your holiday, knowing your pet is safe and well looked after.
