Your dog will enjoy staying with a loving family that has been carefully selected and suitably matched to accommodate your dog’s individual needs.

Your dog's family will follow their existing daily routine, of exercising, feeding and sleeping arrangements.

We’ll arrange an initial in-home consultation with the family prior to your departure so you can see where they live and how your dog’s daily routine will fit into their life.  This means we can ensure that the family and dogs are a great match and will settle into their holiday home even quicker.

Our families become second families for our customers dogs and after their first stay, most dogs don't even notice their owner leave!   Complete peace of mind for dogs and owners knowing they will receive personal love and attention whilst they are away.

Our families are dog lovers and have met our strict guidelines.   They are all happy to have dogs sleep inside the house and have secure sections suitable for dogs.  Some of our families are retired, active people and miss having a dog. Some are at home caring for children and would like a friendly dog to care for, exercise and be part of the family. 

Dogs must be vaccinated, neutered/spayed (unless under 1 year), house trained and well socialised.
