Dogs staying overnight are in the house, in their own room: the dog room!

The dogs are kept comfortable, warm and safe with air conditioning and heating for winter and summer variables, lovely fluffy vet beds and memory foam beds where they need them. Bespoke pens are used to create safe spaces each dog can relax without worry of bed sharing.

Everything a DOG really needs and wants for their perfect holiday.

Dogs requirements and ideals are slightly different to what humans think they need sometimes, but I can promise EVERYTHING your DOG wants in a holiday is here! mud, puddles, fox poo, food, play, warmth or cool and great friends!

Sleeping areas are available in bespoke pens if needed, so there is no squabbling over who is where, and no having to share if they can’t cope with that level of intimacy! All guests must be previously habituated to a ‘crate’ to board here, or must come a for a trial to check they are happy if not already used to one. The safety of your beloved pet, is more important than all other things put together here, and I don’t scrimp on it. EVER!

Judgement is made by me, as to whether an individual would be better suited to a pen at night whilst boarding here as I take their individual comfort, security and welfare extremely seriously.

Dogs coming for daycare have a separate air conditioned room with holding kennels in them known as ‘the school room’ for easy drop off/pick up for regular day care doggies. This room is used to provide a safe drop off and pick up area for clients, used for sleeping breaks, drying off facilities in the winter from the mud and rain, and cooling off time in the summer when things just get too hot for continual play outdoors! You will often find us humans propped up in there too for a cool down!!

Bedding is VetBed known for its high wicking properties to keep your dog warm dry and comfy.
