Dog Boarding

Your dog deserves a holiday too!

Alternative to a Kennel, Home Boarding with a Host Family

Preferred by most dogs and owners. For all dogs including those that are scared of kennels or suffer from kennel stress symptoms. Animals at Home have local dog boarding host families who will care for your dog in their home while you are away on holiday or business.

All of our families have Local Authority Boarding Licenses as required by Law, with suitable houses, gardens and are dog lovers themselves. We take great care to select just the right people to look after your dog.

Before completing the Dog Boarding Services you will be invited to visit the host family before your pets holiday, so you can see the home your best friend will be staying in and meet the people who will look after him or her. We match suitable hosts with the right size, breed and character that your dog requires.

Our families will only be looking after your pets so they get all the care and attention they deserve.

We offer the true alternative to dog boarding kennels, Animals at Home provides a home from home holiday for your dog.
