What is Dog Boarding?
Most people nowadays prefer to board their dog within a loving home environment, maintaining their pet’s routine and ensuring they are happy and content as they are with you. This is, after all the perfect alternative to kennels! However it’s not always easy to find the perfect dog loving carer who can offer all of these things – well LOOK NO FURTHER!
Due to the increasing demand of home boarding HOLIDAY DOGS was created, with the help of our carefully selected dog loving host families. We are now able to offer more and more owners peace of mind whilst they are away from home due to holidays, work etc. Each host family are genuine dog lovers and having either little or no working commitments, they are able to provide your dog with the ultimate care & comfort, giving you absolute peace of mind, flexibility and security.
Each host family are fully insured and licensed, so you know that your dog(s) are receiving the ultimate in care and attention at all times.
*What do the Dog Boarding host families do?
Your dog boarding host family will walk, feed, play with and love your pets just as their own. Your pets will feel loved and cared for from the moment they arrive. Using a dog boarding host family will ensure your pets settle in quickly with minimum stress and love their holiday home. We do not use kennels! All dogs are cared for within a home environment.
*Can I visit the host families with my dog before booking?
Yes, this is a must! Our aim is to give you absolute peace of mind so that you can relax and enjoy your time away knowing that your dog(s) is in the safe hands of Holiday Dogs.
Some host carers like to have an ‘Introductory Day’ first before committing to holiday dates. This gives the host carer and your dog(s) plenty of time to get to know each other really well and to ensure that your dog(s) will be happy and settle in nicely when it’s time for your holiday! Introductory Days are an additional charge, please refer to the pricing page for details.
*What time will I need to drop off / collect my dog?
We tailor our services to your requirements so we have no set rules for drop off. There is no price difference either if you drop off in the morning or later on in the day. A convenient time for drop off can be arranged between yourself and your host carer.
*Can I book a day care only?
Due to the popularity of our boarding service, we are unable to offer daycare only.
We can also provide a pet sitting service in your own home! We have a dedicated carer who will live in your home while you are away, providing ultimate comfort for your pet as they will continue to live within their own environment!
