Dog boarding with Happy Hounds

Happy Hounds and Cooler Cats’ home dog boarding service means when your dogs can’t come with you, they can stay in a home from home environment with a garden to run around in and lots of walks and fun. This is a great alternative to kennels and your dog becomes like a member of a new family with all the comforts of home.    Your dog will be happy and secure and get all the exercise and love and attention they’re used to.

Trustworthy and caring dog boarders

All our home boarders are thoroughly checked, referenced and fully insured. They are generally fit and able retired people or freelancers who work from home so they are around during the day to give your dog the attention they need. They are all genuine animal lovers who are current or former dog owners. All have secure gardens and access to good walks so your dog will be having a fantastic holiday too. Your dog will be taken on two 1 hour walks each day. However we are very flexible so if your dog needs more or less exercise please let us know and we will tailor our service to your dogs individual needs. We are also happy to regularly update you on how your dog is settling in while you are away. We cover most of London and the home counties and can usually provide a pick up and drop off service for your dogs for even greater convenience.  Or, with a number of boarders en route to the airport, you may be able to drop off your dog on the way to the airport, and pick up on your return.  Home boarding means we can be more flexible than a kennel for pick up and drop off times.

You will have the chance to meet your boarder with your dog/s before the stay, so you can assure yourself of their suitability for complete peace of mind.  You can also ensure that your dog’s routine is stuck to as closely as possible. We ask owners to provide food, bedding, toys, basically anything that you think will settle your dog in as quickly as possible and to ensure that they feel at home as soon as they possibly can. What to do next? Well, just send us an email to outlining what kind of service you are looking for. We will then send you a simple application form for you and your pooch to complete and once we have checked their particulars, we will be in touch ASAP to arrange an introductory consultation with one of our local boarders at your convenience. Alternatively you can call us on Happy Hounds Phone on 020 3743 9247  to discuss our service in more detail. Prices: £38 per day for 1 dog over 1 year of age £50 per day for 2 dogs over 1 year of age Please see our prices page for a full list of our charges
