Specialist Doggie Day Care and Training

The law is vague and there is no legal definition of “boarding”. At the moment Winchester Council takes the view that day care is a grey area and they will be looking into some form of licensing in the future, in order for them to oversee a high standard of canine care at all levels.

Some pets are really stressed when left all day at even the best Boarding Kennels. How about an alternative in beautiful rural Hampshire. Perhaps we could offer care as a member of the family?
I have to say that I am not a Boarding Kennel. I am not licensed for that purpose. However, I am fully insured to care for your dog and also have a current Canine First Aid Certificate.

I can only board if dogs come in for Training, as then my charges are for my time as the trainer, not exclusively for the boarding. I offer dog training in Ringcraft (all breeds), Gundog work (only gundog breeds) and Basic Obedience (all breeds).
Ad hoc single days’ training can only cover Basics; good manners in and out of the house, heelwork, social skills etc.
All dogs live in the house, sleeping in the kitchen.
I can only offer a limited number of kennels for gundogs that prefer outdoor accommodation.

In my home the dogs will be under constant supervision – educational play and mental stimulation for the youngsters or total relaxation for OAPs

No dog leaves here unhappy – that is a promise.

You tell me what makes your pet feel most comfortable. I can provide a taxi service for your pet to and from home and my regular “guests” always look forward to visiting their little but noisy pals at this Country Club for Canines. Whether they visit over several weeks or a single day.. all owners become friends of the family and collections / deliveries can often turn into social occasions!
