Our service is not be confused with directory sites of un-audited, inexperienced, and unreliable people offering to look after your dog.
Your dog’s carer will be a like-minded, experienced dog loving person to look after your dog just like you do. Your pet will be given a complete Home-from-Home stay welcomed in as part of the family with no other guest dogs staying. We do not put your dog at risk by pack walking or allowing other guest dogs to come and go unsettling your dog. Your dog's stay will all be about your dog (or dogs) with all the loving, knowledgeable care, attention and exercise your dog truly deserves.
Let us invite you to meet your local dog carer today.
Established in 2006, we have a huge amount of experience serving 1000’s of owners and their beloved pets for over 14 years.
Our responsibility is to offer you a choice of carer for your four legged family member. A carer who will provide a safe and loving home from home environment in which your dog will feel relaxed and secure allowing you to focus on commitments, be they business or pleasure, without worry or apprehension. Before any stay you and your dog will always meet your selected carer to ensure that everyone is fully matched and comfortable with each other.. No payment is taken until you are happy with your chosen dog carer.
Despite local authority changes allowing dog care providers to profit from looking after multiple dogs in the home, accepting day-care dogs as well as home boarders and pack walk up to 6 dogs together, Holidays4Dogs has always firmly believed that your dog is safer and best cared for as an individual, not as part of a pack.
To this day we are one of very few dog care providers who offers a truly exclusive stay for your dog. This Philosophy is proven to best provide full peace of mind for you and your dog.
We have COVID-19 safeguarding in place and follow all latest Government and CFSG/DEFRA guidelines to protect both you and your dog's carer.
What is home dog boarding?
Home dog boarding is when your dog goes to stay with a host family where your dog lives as part of the family, in their home with his own bed, food, toys and enjoys all the comforts of home away. There are no kennels and no cages involved.
What has changed?
Home boarding used to be all about personal, one to one care. Dogs from other families were not allowed to mix. Unfortunately this has now changed and many home boarding providers today do so to maximise profit and are now allowed to fill their homes with dogs from more than one family, accept additional day care dogs and pack walk up to 6 dogs together. We believe given mass boarding your dog no longer receives all the loving one-to-one care, attention and individual exercise your dog requires.
Holidays4Dogs Carers are not looking after your dog for profit (if they did they'd have lots of dogs staying at once like other boarders) instead they enjoy the company of your dog and provide loving care willingly for your dog. We believe it’s important to match your dog to the perfect carer, this will be someone who is as near as possible to where you live and of course is available when you need them. We always invite you and your dog to meet your dog’s carer before any stay to make sure you are 100% happy and go away with complete peace of mind leaving your dog. We understand trust is a very important thing and as such our carers like to keep in touch while you are away providing updates for you.
Meeting your chosen dog carer for the first time may seem a daunting experience but we are firm believers in the saying ‘There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met’.
We look forward to meeting you and your dog very soon.
“Our friend recommended Barbara &John Keenan to look after our 3year old shih tzu Beau when we had two weeks holiday, we were apprehensive as we hadn't left her before ' our fears were completely unfounded ! While we were away we received pictures and updates which showed a very happy and contented dog . We can't praise Barbara & John enough such a lovely,caring couple and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.Beau has made two new friends as have we .”
