The right care for your dog


Our home dog boarding service supports dog owners who are going away on holiday.

We have a choice of different types of home available throughout Essex so you can pick the perfect place to suit your dog’s individual needs and preferences.

Our care covers everything that you would do for your dog at home from bed times to regular walks and most importantly we guarantee lots of attention and TLC. You have the opportunity to meet your dog’s proposed sitters to check that you are entirely comfortable with them before they take care of your dog.

A home from home

  • Your dog will have the run of the pet sitter’s home and garden
  • We maintain all of your dog’s feeding  and walking routines
  • Your dog will be taken immediately to the vet if he becomes ill
  • You will have peace of mind knowing  your dog is in safe hands
  • Return  home to a happy, healthy dog!

How it works


Plan ahead

Once you have some holiday plans in mind, phone us with details of your dates, and give us lots of information about your dog/s, such as breed, age, daily routine, characteristics etc, along with your name, address and contact details.

The best match for your pet

We will select the best pet sitter for your dog, and invite you to visit them, taking your pet with you. This will give you the opportunity to chat about your dog’s feeding, walking and sleeping routines, and for the pet sitter to ask you any questions they might have about your dog.

Book your sitter

When we have confirmation from you that you are happy with our recommended pet sitter, and that you would like them to look after your dog, a deposit is payable to hold the dates with that sitter for your dog.

When you deliver your dog

You need to take your dog’s bed, toys and enough food for the duration of your holiday. Your pet sitter will ensure your dog settles as quickly and easily as possible, and they will give him or her love and attention straight away. All feeding and walking routines will be maintained to avoid stress and disruption.

Home dog boarding charges


Our home dog boarding is charged at a daily rate, from the day your dog arrives with the pet sitter, up to and including the day your dog leaves.

Our prices reflect the difference between home dog boarding, and the boarding kennel environment and also the individual loving care and attention your dog will receive from its very own pet sitter.

The cost is:

Care for one dog: £23 per day 
Care for two dogs: £33 per day
For public and bank holidays the rate is £12 extra for 1 dog and £16 for 2 dogs.

House sitting  available for your pet too when you are away on holiday.
