Pet Boarding Services

Small Animals (Pet Boarding)

Guest rabbits / gerbils / hamsters / mice / rats / chinchillas / ferrets / chickens etc. can be kept indoors or outdoors depending on your needs, and would have access to an area to run around other than their hutch/pen if this was their normal experience at home. Smaller animals would stay in their own cage which you would bring with you. If you have more than one pet sharing a cage/hutch, they would be kept together, again to alleviate any stress. Our conservatory, where we keep our indoor guest pets during the colder months can be heated and is dry and draught free whilst giving plenty of daylight. We also have a garage with good natural sunlight where animals not requiring heat can be housed in a dry and draught free environment. During the summer months, we try to keep rabbits and other smaller animals outside providing their hutches/cages give them sufficient shelter as this keeps them cooler. We are flexible though, and if this is not the case, we can keep them indoors. We ask that you bring their normal food and any toys, again, to make their stay as enjoyable as possible. They will be cleaned out as regularly as is necessary and will have lots of attention!

Small Animals (Home Visits)

We also offer home visits for smaller caged/hutched animals should you prefer them to stay in their own environment at your home and can discuss any requirements with you as necessary.

Dogs (Home Visits)

Dogs are cared for in your home to avoid the stress of having to go to kennels and are visited during the day as many times as you want. When we visit they will receive the love and attention and cuddles they need and we will play with them in your garden/outside space as well as let them have their necessary comfort breaks! We also make sure that they are in good health and are content and that their water supply and/or food supply is how you have asked it to be maintained.

Cats (Home Visits)

We think some cats prefer to be at home in their own environment and therefore offer frequent home visits so that they don’t have the stress of going somewhere else and so that they are free to roam their normal patch during your absence. When we visit they are still able to receive the love and attention and cuddles that they need and we make sure that they are in good health and are content!

Collection/Delivery Service

We can collect and deliver your pets to and from your home to ours as necessary.

Stays of less than one day

We can look after pets for shorter periods based on an hourly rate which would not exceed the cost for a day. Please contact us for further information to discuss your requirements further.

Other pets species

We can discuss any other pet requirements you may have e.g. fish, other birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects etc.

Terms and Conditions

Home Visits

  • For animals being home-visited, we must be able to meet you and your pets in your home so that we know where everything is and so that your pets can meet us. We also need you to show and explain everything we need to know and handover any keys as necessary. A written sheet of instructions is required.
  • All animals must be in good health (as far as you are aware).
  • Their habits and routine must be explained so that we know what to expect and to be able to determine if anything is wrong. e.g. if your cat wanders off for a few days at a time, it is important that we know this; if your chickens display certain behaviours, we need to know; or if your dog is not behaving as they would normally behave etc.

Small Animals (Boarding)

  • Dry food should be bought in a clearly labelled container.
  • Cages should be bought with food container and water bottle and any toys they normally have.
  • For rabbits/guinea pigs using our hutches, their food bowl and water bottle should be supplied as well as any toys they normally have.
