Does your dog need a holiday home?

We’ll take care of them while you have a break 

Why We Love Pets Dog Home Boarding?

Your dog will feel right at home

Our home from home dog boarding service takes away the stress of organising holiday pet care leaving you able to relax and enjoy yourself.

Dog home boarding is a fantastic alternative to traditional dog boarding kennels – ideal if you want your dog to be looked after in a caring home environment while you’re away.


We’ll let you know how it’s going

Your dog carer will provide you with updates and photos, so that you know your dog is having a great holiday!

Is my dog suitable for home boarding?

If your dog enjoys home comforts and gets on with other dogs and people, then yes, absolutely!

Home boarding is best for dogs who are friendly, well socialised and enjoy living as part of a family. We board dogs that are:

  • House trained
  • Up to date with vaccinations (including kennel cough)
  • Up to date with flea and worming treatment (using products recommended by the vet)
  • Friendly and sociable with people and other dogs
  • Some licence conditions mean that dogs under six months and un-neutered males cannot be boarded – please check with your local branch or consider house sitting instead
