Newt has had a few stays at Richards now. Seems to have so much fun he doesn’t want to come home. Richard is super friendly and great to deal with. Clearly is knowledgeable about dogs and loves caring for them.
I was really anxious about leaving Elizabeth for the first time but she was well taken care off and will be using the service again.
Lars had a fab time and the little videos Richard sent made me laugh and put me at ease that Lars was ok!

What Richard would like to know about your dog
We are a husband and wife team that home board, walk and do day care for over 100 different dogs a year whilst their owners are at work, on holiday. We haven't just ticked a box to say we are legal, we actually are legal and we hold a valid Dog Home Boarding licence - ask to see it and demand one from anyone advertising paid Dog Home Boarding services in the UK. It is a huge part of your dogs safety for being looked after overnight by someone being paid to do it. Legal Dog Home Boarding establishments are required to board dogs who are vaccinated so we need to know if your dog is vaccinated. A Kennel cough vaccination is NOT required for dogs that are being Home Boarded. In order to do our job of looking after your dog we need you to let us know about your dogs medical needs, usual daily routine, whether it is neutered or not, what it eats and when. It is nothing complicated you will want to talk to us about your dog, we want to know and we will ask you what we need and what you want from us. We don't require pages of instructions not least because we are in contact with you with updates and can ask any questions that might come up during your dogs stay. Ultimately Owners know their dogs and have to make the decision whether your dog is suitable for Home Boarding. Dogs that have history of straying, are poorly socialised to the extent they can't live in proximity of other dogs or their Owner or require one to one 24hr supervision / care are not suitable. We accept most breeds and all sizes, we can handle nervous dogs, shy dogs, boisterous dogs, puppies, veterans but the mix we have in the house at any one time depends on what other dogs we have with us when you want to book. We are set up to home board dogs with plenty of internal dog gates, high quality professional leashes, harnesses, collars, luxury beds, a secure house and garden and we expect the mess and disruption to a household that this involves (our lounge is more like a stable !) You are not going to get complaints about your dog doing what dogs do or bills for new wallpaper, cleaning carpets etc..! We are flexible, experienced and practical and friendly which helps ensure your dog has a great time, with the run of the house and garden, walks and trips out, and you don't get hassle whilst your dog is in our care and there are no issues over and mess, damage etc your dog might cause whilst they are here... We have never had to cancel a Home Boarding Booking at short notice or required and owner to collect their dog from us or moved it to kennels etc during a stay...we have many repeat customers and we love the individual personalities of all the different breeds and types of dogs we look after.
