Dog Boarding in North Warwickshire

Our Dog Boarding services are designed to give you peace of mind when travelling. We offer a true home-from-home experience with a loving family and a luxurious alternative to kennels.

Dog Boarding in North Warwickshire

We offer all the comforts and familiar routines of home that your dog is accustomed to. We take great care to select just the right people to host your dog, and all of our host families have Local Authority Dog Home Boarding Licenses as required by Law. They must have suitable houses, gardens, training, protocols and risk assessments; and importantly, must be dog lovers themselves. We are proud to be a maximum five star-rated home boarding arranger and supplier of home boarding services.

How does it work?

If you are new to dog boarding, don’t worry, we will guide you through the process. Before your dog stays with us, you will be invited to visit the host family, so you can see the home your best friend will be staying in and meet the people who will look after them.

Once both parties are happy we will look forward to your dog’s arrival, or we can collect them in our specially designed pet taxi. Either way, you can relax knowing they will get all the care and attention they deserve, and you’ll get plenty of photo and video updates so you can see how much fun your dog is having on their holiday!

Subject to availability, you can choose to upgrade your dog’s stay to include dog training services.

We are rated a maximum five stars for Home Boarding by North Warwickshire Borough Council and Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council references: 009108 and 23220/2/22 & Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council dog boarding license reference 20/0028/AWBOH

The first time leaving Wilf whilst we went on holiday and we were so happy with the service provided by Animals at Home – Sarah and Steve were brilliant!

Wilf had a great time and it was lovely to receive WhatsApp updates and photos

Highly recommend – it was great to be away without worrying about Wilf.

We can not recommend the services provided enough. Over the past 6 weeks we have had a very poorly dog who at one point we thought may lose her eye due to a cornea ulcer that then got a rare fungal infection. With a planned induction for our new addition to the family booked last Friday, the stress was starting to build with the concern for our pets welfare knowing the induction process could take days and the level of care she would need by someone other than ourselves. However, we were able to go into hospital last Friday totally focused on getting our new arrival here safely as we knew our dog was in the safe hands of Jonathan and Verity. Not only did they home our pet throughout the entire hospital stay but they cared for our dog like she was their own. Administering multiple medications daily and sending us regular updates on her progress. To which we are so happy to say that our dog has now been reviewed by the vet and they are amazed at the progress she has made in healing and is now fully on the mend. This wouldn’t have been possible without the continued care that was provided when we were not able to care for our own fur baby. Forever grateful for such a great service.

Allan Forster

Excellent service. We have recently used animals at home to look after our dogs while we were on honeymoon. They kept us updated regularly and exercised the dogs daily. We have also used animals at home to walk our dogs and train them- we have noticed a great improvement in our dogs’ behaviour in the last year. Really cannot fault this service.

Caroline Buggea

Cannot praise this company enough ! Due to a family wedding, Poppy and Billy stayed with Jane. From the minute you meet her you can tell she adores dogs! Her home is their home for the duration of the stay. Great to have regular updates and pictures which put our minds at rest that they were settled. So great to have Billy transported to the wedding by Verity and John …they made our son and daughter in laws day so special allowing their fur baby to be part of the celebrations.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this company and will certainly use their services again

Sarah Hooton

Animals at Home were so accommodating having had to postpone our booking for a year due to covid. Jon & Verity looked after after my 3 pooches, two of which are rescue dogs with their own particular quirks, I was able to enjoy my son’s wedding with regular updates throughout their stay during the day and overnight. Really happy with their friendly and professional approach.

Lisa Organ 

We have used Verity and Jon on a few occasions now for looking after our Beagle, it’s the first time he has stayed with anyone else who isn’t family. Teddy was made to feel so welcome and we got so many updates of photos and videos which was amazing, I would be happy to recommend.

Helen White 

Would like to thank Animals at Home for looking after our Jessie for the weekend. The regular updates, picture and videos just showed how much she enjoyed her stay and was cared for like she was their own. It’s always difficult to leave your fur babies with someone but I was able to relax and enjoy my night away in the knowledge that Jessie was very well looked after. Highly recommended by myself and Jessie

Sarah L Chetwynd 

Can’t recommend Animals at Home enough!! Arranged a lovely family to look after our dog Diesel for the weekend. We had regular updates from the family over the weekend and photos showing us how comfortable Diesel had made himself with them. Such a wonderful touch!! Would fully recommend and will definitely be using there services again!

Janet Elisabeth Shaw 

As always Fantastic service from Mandy, Verity and Jon who boarded Lola and Rigsby for the week. They were collected and returned by Animals at Home  transport which removes all the stress of leaving them and regular messages, photos and videos are sent daily which helps my ‘Separation Anxiety’ – the pups don’t suffer from that they are too pampered and exercised for that!

Fabulous service and highly recommend

Jacqui Greathead 

Have used there services a few times over the past four years since living here. It’s always worrying times leaving your pet with some while your away but I know Poppy my cocker couldn’t be in better safer hands. It’s literally home from home.

Verity, Jon and there adorable sons look after Poppy. She helps Verity do the accounts and helps Jon take the boys to school then she has her morning nap I think she has a better time than me

In a nutshell Animals at Home THANKYOU I am able to relax knowing Poppy is cared for the way she has come accustomed to.

Emily Mason 

Bernie clearly had an amazing stay with Mandy and has come back very happy and shattered. Bernie is nearly 5 and since a puppy has been staying with owners and hosts of Animals at Home. I would never send him anywhere else. It was his first time at Mandy’s last night and he had a fantastic time.

The updates we get always make us smile, although even if we didn’t get any it wouldn’t bother me as I know he is in the best and safest hands. Thank you.

Garry Wood 

These people are just fantastic. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback is obviously a big dog that not everyone wants to look after. After being in kennels during previous holidays, he always came back very stressed & anxious and had bitten his feet until they were very sore. Verity & Jon treated him like part of their family, he had cuddles on the sofa and made himself at home and had lots of countryside walks. On our return he was a happy boy and it made our time away so much less worrying. I cannot praise them enough. The charges are good and the company is very well run with excellent communication and lots of pictures of our dogs activities were sent to us while we were away which was a great comfort. Everything was 5*. We will be very happy to use them again and more importantly so will Rogan!

Stewart Garside 

Jarvis has thoroughly enjoyed his holiday with Mandy and family. It was very reassuring for me to receive photos and videos of Jarvis several times a day. It was an absolutely first-class service which I would recommend without hesitation

Adam Smith  

Amazing service! Naturally felt a bit anxious about leaving our two Labrador’s for the first time, but Verity and Jon are absolutely fantastic. Felt completely assured and safe knowing they will be looked after well and was kept up to date with regular photos and videos. In fact I think the dogs were both little sad to be leaving them and coming back home! Will absolutely, 100%, be using them again when the need arises. Can not recommend them highly enough.

Georgia Evans 

I would definitely recommend AAH! Verity and Jon were amazing when I needed them to look after my baby for 3 nights. They kept me updated regularly with pictures too. This is the first time I have left my dog with someone other than family and safe to say I was very anxious about how she would settle. But I needn’t have worried as they were totally amazing with her and she had a fab holiday!

Jenny Bruce 

Animals at home are always my first choice to look after my dog Oscar if I’m not home, he always enjoys his walks and I know he is in good hands. also the photos they send of him I know he is having fun.

wish I could give you more than 5 stars

Margaret Willits 

thank you for looking after molly so i could go away knowing she was with a lovely family looking after her. definitely do it again thank you Verity, Jon and the boys for taking care of molly for me

Jane Walford 

Our two boys have spent the last 2 1/2 weeks with careers at Animals at Home. We collected them from Jon this morning and they both were very happy staying at their home. They keep up very much updated throughout our holiday with messages and photos, which is very comforting. This is why we are repeat customers of Animals at home North Warwickshire. We would highly recommend their friendly service.

Anna Sutherland 

Mine and my sisters dog stayed for three nights with verity and Jon.

We had regular updates and pictures of how they were doing, this put our mind at rest knowing they were happy.

They were really well looked after and verity and Jon were very knowledgeable, we will defiantly be using them again, very happy dogs and humans!

Deborah Jane 

We would just like to say a massive Thank you to Verity & John who have looked after our Beagle Ollie for a week whilst we were away on holiday .

Ollie has been so well looked after to the highest standard and we couldn’t be more happier with the service.

We had regular updates with photo’s of Ollie to show us how he was settled and enjoying his time with Verity & John and their family xx

We will definitely recommend your services to our friends and family and hope to use your services again in the future.

We cannot thank you enough for making Ollie’s stay a home from home environment with him overtaking your sofa and home xx

Trina Williams 

Great family who look after your pet like their own

Having them keep in touch and sending photos while you were away puts your mind at rest and was great to see Chester so settled. Proper home from home care – would definitely recommend

Daniel Stevenson 

Picked my Dog Cali up From Verity and Jon’s house today after leaving her there for two nights while we was off getting married!

I’m not sure she wanted to come home, Cali was having too much fun with the two lads and the other dog that was there.

Cali was really well looked after, I can’t recommend Verity and Jon highly enough, lovely people in a lovely house.

Really nice of Verity and Jon to send us pictures of Cali having fun during her stay, helps put your mind at rest that she was being looked after.

Will definitely be leaving Cali with this lovely family aga

Donna Lindsey Liebenberg 

Just picked up our Newfie from Jon and Verity, his home away from home! I’m pretty sure he didn’t want to come home! Thank you for the fantastic care you have given him the past two weeks and in the past! I would recommend you guys to anyone and so would Harbour we will see you soon again! X

Katie Bown 

First time leaving my cocker spaniel Miley with anyone other than family. I 100% recommend Mandy. She was super! I could relax and enjoy my holiday knowing my fur baby was well looked after, loved the daily pictures it was a huge reassurance for me. I think Miley wouldnt of cared if we didn’t pick her up she had made her self right at home. Thank you so much. I will definitely be returning for your services

Stephen Hall

My dog Sky has just recently had a five night stay with Jill &Rex.
This was her first time staying at their home, but she was given the 5 star treatment.
Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to accommodate Sky’s dietary requirements.
All correspondence with Animals at home (North Warks) Ltd was professional and responsive.
If you are looking for somewhere special to leave your pet while on holiday then I would recommend if this company.



Sue Astle

My dog is diabetic and 14 years old and I did not want to put him in kennels but wanted to go away with our daughter and son-in-law. There were no places available for kip to go to a host family but there was a house sitter that would come and stay.
This was the most expensive option but we went for it. I’m so glad we did. It was worth every penny as Beverly was perfect. I have had a lovely break and not had to worry if about kip as there have been plenty of photos sent and messages.
Would definitely recommend. Worth every penny xx

Cheryl Bridges

Our 3 spaniels have had great week with Jon and Verify who have treated them like as great guests. They have had fun in the woods, garden and on the sofa . Always great to know they are having as much fun as us when we are away. Thanks guys and see you next time.


Animals at Home are by far the most professional, genuine and comprehensive pet care providers I have had the pleasure of meeting. Working within the industry for some years enlightens you to the real goings on within some boarding establishments but I can personally vouch for the A* level of treatment they will give your pet. I felt like my pooch had his own enriched holiday stay with these two and I would urge you to look no further for your needs! Well done guys, you are by far the best in the area!

Gill Hunton

“……….a caring business model for your pet in a home environment, relaxing and secure! The hosts go to great lengths to make sure your pet is well looked after and if our black Labrador ‘Ruby’ could talk and type then she would be writing and praising it even more. Well done for looking after Ruby so well!


Kay Southerd

Verity and Jon were absolutely fantastic with our special collie Lucy – they treated her like their own and I cannot express how much that meant – we hardly leave Lucy and to have some people who you trust is just amazing thanks verity and Jon and family xx

Lucy-Ellen Frost

We use Animals at home to care for our spaniel and elderly cat whilst whenever we are away and honestly I cannot recommend them enough!
From the very first enquiring right down to collecting my keys when we return the service was absolutely perfect.
We’ve never used anything like this business before so I didn’t know what to expect but the whole process was so professional and seamless!
There was a thorough consultation and meeting our pets before hand. There were things we hadn’t even thought of that were covered!
We receive updates daily when we’re away which was amazing not only for reassurance but it saves us having to keep checking up… In fact now when we’re away I don’t even worry!
Overall I would highly recommend Animals at Home to anyone looking for a reliable, professional and passionate service. They go above and beyond and create an atmosphere of friendship rather than a business deal. I felt completely 100% comfortable allowing them access to our home and in charge of our babies

Thanks again, we enjoy our breaks so much more thanks to your dedication. Passion and caring approach!

Andrew Sutton

Excellent service, would well recommend if you want to go on holiday knowing your pet is in very safe hands


elaine goadsby

Excellent service , I have a very precious little fur baby called milo who I had never left with anyone outside of the family , donna and her organisation introduced me to wonderful couple who have showered milo with love care and affection, I worried immensely leaving him for the first time and for the first time overnight but I worried needlessly as milo was very relaxed and was made to feel completely at home. I have absolutely no hesitation at leaving milo with his foster mummy and daddy now I am reassured the care provided is equal to the care I provide for him myself. The introduction, booking and transactions have been effortless and the service provided professional throughout , with excellent communication links and I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone looking to leave their precious animal family members for either day care or boarding services.
