Dog Tails Home Boarding
Dog Tails Home Boarding - Home Boarding in Bournemouth, Dorset
Dog Tails Home Boarding is a great alternative to putting your dog(s) into kennels when you are away from home. We offer a child free quiet, loving home from home for your dog(s), where they will be fed, walked and fussed over whilst being looked after in our home and treated as part of the family.
We have over 20 years’ experience of owning our own dogs and looking after the dogs of friends and family. We no longer have any dogs of our own and after requests from the friends of friends to also look after their dogs, we decided to open our home officially to offer home boarding and now spend our time enjoying the variety of dogs that we look after for others.
We have a spacious house in a quiet close, a large garden, fully enclosed by a brick wall topped with a sturdy fence and lockable gates. The garden has plenty of grass, three patios (dogs can follow the sun or avoid it, depending on their preference) and all our flower beds are gravelled, which minimises digging.
Our guests have the run of the downstairs of the house, conservatory and garden, throughout the day. If your dog(s) are used to sleeping in your room at night and would struggle to sleep elsewhere, we can accommodate that, otherwise the dog(s) will sleep on their own beds in the kitchen.
We walk all our guests at least twice a day, (if your dog is not up to this, let us know and we can adjust the length or number of walks accordingly).
We can accommodate single dogs, subject to availability, who prefer to be the only dog in the house or for those of a more social nature we are licensed to board up to 4 dogs. We prefer if all dogs boarded at one time are from the same family, however we may occasionally have other dogs wanting to come just for the day, we always gain permission from all owners prior to mixing dogs from different families in this way.
We are licensed by the local authority, are fully insured and have a diploma in Pet Sitting and Dog Walking (which includes basic dog first aid). We are registered with Pets for Vets and if any dog becomes ill whilst in our care we will ensure he/she gets any treatment/care needed either from their own vet or from ours. Any costs for this will be payable by the owner and we recommend that the dogs are insured to cover vet fees.
Prior to booking with us, we ask all our clients to bring their dog(s) for a familiarisation visit and they will need to complete a detailed questionnaire. This ensures that the dog(s) and their owners are comfortable with us and our home and lets us get to know the dog(s) to ensure that they will fit in to our home and that we know everything we need to ensure their happiness and safety whilst in our care.
“Dog Tails Home Boarding has been like a second home to my Black Labrador - she always comes home happy and suitably tired! Brilliant communication, flexible, safe, meet all requirements and are very reasonable for the care and attention each dog recieves. Would recommend Dog Tails Home Boarding to anyone! ”
