The Whippet Haven - Dog Home Boarder for Whippets covering

Worthing, Lancing and Shoreham in East Sussex

We provide complete Whippet comfort and luxury in our home.
A true home from home experience for your pet while you are away on holiday.

I have been boarding dogs in my home since January 2016. I often say that it is the perfect job, well, it is for me anyway.  I recently decided to specialise in Whippet boarding because I have a special interest in and love for the breed. I have owned my own whippet, Missy, for 8 years now.  I think that I understand the relationship between a whippet and his/her human slave.  There can be no lying on the floor , no snoozing uncovered, no walking in the rain.... Beds must always be positioned in the sunshine or placed infront of the fire and there must be a constant supply of warm people to snuggle with.

I love the story (not sure if it’s true) that in ‘the old days’ people would keep whippets so they could be popped into their children’s beds at night to warm it up before bedtime. In my house it feels like it’s the other way round!

My own Whippet (Missy) and her best friend Rocky the Chihuahua will help your dog feel relaxed and entertained and hopefully they will feel as though they have had a holiday too.

I am dog warden approved. Fully insured. First Aid trained. Licenced by Adur District Council.

“Rowan was recommended to us last year and how lucky was that !! Our whippet Ernie has really enjoyed his 2 (so far!!) stays and even found 'love' on his last visit (very appropriate as Valentine's Day is on the horizon). The Whippet Haven is so cosy and inviting and we love the pictures that Rowan send us. It's so reassuring knowing that Ernie is somewhere safe and being looked after loved just like at home. Can't thank you enough. ”

“Our dog, Luka, adores Rowan and her family. He can’t wait for the front door to open so he can enter his second home and greet his second family! They are so loving and caring. If Rowan isn’t available, we adjust our dates or don’t go away. I can’t recommend Rowan highly enough - we have complete peace of mind when a Luka is staying there. ”

- Sarah Hood

“There is no one better Than Rowan... She will not only look after your doggies she will love them to bits... if you are not careful they might not want to go home again.”

- Vanessa

“My whippets have stayed with Rowan and family a few times now and I honestly can’t recommend her enough! We get lots of lovely updates throughout their stay and it’s plain to see how well cared for and loved they are. If you need home from home boarding Rowan is your woman!”

- Emma
