Allywags - Dog Home Boarding in Petersfield, Hampshire
Established in 2002 Allywags is a full-service dog care facility dedicated to providing consistently high customer satisfaction by rendering excellent service, quality dog care and furnishing a fun, sociable and enjoyable atmosphere in a safe environment.
Set in 5 acres of Hampshire countryside on the edge of the beautiful market town of Petersfield we have direct access to a network of footpaths that lead directly from the premises but, Petersfield has many other places to explore and is within easy reach of the South Downs, Durford Wood, Rogate Common and not too far from the beach or New Forest either; all places that we regularly visit.
Home boarding is a kinder alternative to kennelling your dog where they live with us and our own dogs in our home in the woods with a large garden, some of which is wooded. Beds, toys and treats are provided and they will enjoy all the comforts, personal attention, care and exercise they require in accordance with your instructions.
We know that all dogs are different and we need to make sure that we are right for your pet too, that they enjoy our company, have fun in our paddocks and feel comfortable with what we offer. As such we always conduct a taster day which is our opportunity to meet, for you to see what we offer and for your dog to experience a day in our care. At the end of the day, when you collect your dog, you will know if they've enjoyed their time with us. Our experience has taught us that the dog gives the best feedback.
You can be assured that your pet is in good hands. We are dog owners and lovers and have invested heavily in training so that we can provide the best care. Our vehicles are professionally fitted out with safe and secure cages to DEFRA approved standards and we are fully insured, licensed and inspected by our local authority.
We have access to secure paddocks within 5 acres of Petersfield countryside to allow a safe and secure area for play and socialisation and we go on regular varied walks in and around the countryside of Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey. Beach visits are common, especially in the Summer and our Christmas guests are always treated to a turkey supper and Boxing Day trip to West Wittering - an annual outing whatever the weather. We also provide stimulation through scent and search games, play times with balls and other toys and rest times so as not to over exert our guests.
As all dogs stay in our own home with us there are a few conditions that we must comply with, including being up to date with all vaccinations (including kennel cough) and regular parasitic treatment. We also ask that you provide your dog's regular food.
Being dog owners ourselves we fully understand our customer's needs and have set ourselves apart from others by offering many services from a single business. With over 15 years of experience in pet care and continual investment in training and professional qualifications we aim to keep up to date with the Dog Law and regularly consolidate our skills and knowledge (behavioural, dog training and canine 1st aid). We work only using positive, kind and rewarding methods of training and are not only recommended by vets but used by vets.
Ally is a qualified Tellington Ttouch Practitioner (Companion Animal Training and Behavioural) with a diploma from Edinburgh University in Animal Welfare. A regular volunteer at Battersea Dogs and Cats home where she uses Ttouch to help those dogs (especially sight hounds) cope with the stress of being kennelled with the longer term goal of rehabilitation so that they can be rehomed. Our own lurcher is from Battersea, a lovely dog that has settled in well to our home, his forever home.
Aidan is a trainer accredited by The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT). He is also progressing with scent detection work with our Hungarian Vizsla with Talking Dogs Scentwork and Tracking through both the UK Dog Tracking Association and World Scent Dog Association.
“Allywags provides excellent services and I can not recommend highly enough! I had a problem with finding right fit for home boarding for my really energetic lurcher Hector. Several businesses refused to look after him again as they were overwhelmed by his energy levels and didn't know how to cope with it. Ally & Aidan sounded very knowledgeable about the breed and they didn't get scared by Hector. Quite a contrary they really enjoyed his company and Hector loves going to Allywags for holiday. Allywags has great setup of secured field, where dogs can play, run freely and burn their energy. Ally & Aidan take their guests for long walks in local national park, which adds excitement to stay at Allywags for our four legged friends.”
