37 years of experience caring for dogs has shown me that it is really important to get to understand your dog’s likes, dislikes, needs and requirements. This information is at the absolute core of ‘Home Boarding’, so that your dog’s exercise, feeding and sleeping routines are maintained. This is essential in providing a stress free holiday for your dog.

Before you go on holiday, I will come to your home for an initial registration meeting to find out all of the above information, meet your dog/s and learn a bit about their personality. I will ask if they prefer to sleep in a bedroom, a sofa, or their own bed within a certain area of the house. I will also take details of any medication requirements and ask about their feeding and usual exercise routines. With this information, I can match your dog/s with the most suitable family for them. Matching them with the right hairbnb family is very important and the information you provide is invaluable.

You will want to know who is looking after your dog, so during our meeting, I will show you all of our dog-loving families, where they live and what experience they have.

All of our host families are vetted and carefully inspected by me and are guaranteed to meet our extremely high ‘animal husbandry’ standards. Our hosts are at home during the day to ensure exercise, love and care is always ‘on tap’. If your dog is extremely sociable and you’d like them to have some company during their stay, then I can arrange a holiday with a family who have a friendly dog of their own.

In order to alleviate the stress a dog can experience when being left at an unfamiliar place by their family, Hairbnb provide a complete service, including door to door chauffer driven transportation. This is a real bonus when you are preparing to go on holiday and settle back in on your return. Being collected from home is far less stressful and overcomes any anxiety which your dog could feel by being dropped off and left by you.

On your return from holiday, I will bring your furry friend home to you.
