Home Boarding

We feel that finding a suitable kennel can be very hard and placing a dog in a kennel when they are not used to it can be very stressful for them also. Home boarding is a fantastic alternative for dogs who will not settle in a kennel environment.

Your dog lives with us , in the house as part of our family!

A real home from home for your pet and within walking distance to Wanstead Flats so your dog gets his/her daily walks, we are very confident your dog will have a fantastic holiday with us and be much loved.

You can now take your holiday with confidence and be assured, your dog is having a holiday too!
