I am licenced by Herefordshire Council to provide home boarding for dogs (Licence Number N-HOB45). I have comprehensive insurance and I’ve undertaken practical training as a Canine First Responder.
My fiance, Iwan, and I both have a great love for dogs. My family have had dogs since I was a baby and so I’ve grown up around them, from Rottweiler to Yorkie and Terrier to Doberman, I’ve lived with all sorts of pooches. Iw’s love affairs with four legged friends involved mostly toy dogs, a Pomeranian and a Pug to be precise. We understand that dogs are very much a member of the family! We’re affectionate, kind people and pride ourselves on offering a ‘home away from home’ service for any canine, large or small. We live in a small cottage in the heart of the Wye Valley, surrounded by forest. There is an abundance of outstanding walks on our doorstep and so exercising dogs is an absolute pleasure. Plus, we’re tucked away from the roads meaning the risks associated with passing traffic are minimal.
We both work from home, meaning there will be someone with the dogs at all times. We generally only take dogs from the same family at any one time, primarily so that it really feels like their second home without the worry of being with unfamiliar dogs. However, occasionally we will put two dogs together as long as we know them well and all parties agree. Our home is quiet and peaceful (with no children) so it’s especially suitable for nervous dogs and puppies. We have some regular puppy visitors now and have developed really special relationships with them. It’s a privilege and an honour to be entrusted with their care.
The cost of Home Boarding is:
ONE DOG: £20 per 24 hours (or per overnight stay)
Doggy day care: £15 (up to 12 hours)
TWO DOGS: £35 per 24 hours
Doggy day care: £25 (up to 12 hours)
If you’d like us to house-sit whilst you’re away, an additional cost of £5 per day is applicable.
