Summer Holidays 2016

We have bookings now throughout the whole Summer Holiday period, with only a few days here and there where we may be able to accomodate another dog. We also only have a few days available in September and October. You can check our availability, but always call to check and see if we may still be able to help.

What We Do

At Home Dog Boarding provides home dog boarding at our home in New Milton, so your dog(s) will stay in a comfortable, friendly home environment when you're away on holiday, business or for any event.

Home dog boarding is a great alternative to dog boarding kennels, so your dog(s) get a home-from-home experience, where they'll live as honorary members of our family.

Fully licenced by New Forest District Council, as required by law, so you can be sure of an excellent standard of care for your pet.

Your dog(s) will sleep in the house, usually in their own bed and not in outside kennels.

Your dog(s) will be walked safely on lead and we'll tailor the time or distance of walks to match as closely as possible to the amount of exercise your dog is used to. They'll also have access to our large, secure garden.

Your dog(s) will be fed their usual food and treats, as near as possible on the same schedule they're used to at home.

This year we have been able to increase our capacity to three dogs, so we're happy to help if you have more than one dog in the family, but we're still small enough to give them personal attention.

Our Services & Prices

We offer boarding for 24 hour stays and upwards to cover holidays and even longer periods of absence. We can also offer doggy daycare on an occasional basis.

No Dog Too Large

Clifford_the_Big_Red_DogSome home dog boarders specify that they only take small and medium-sized dogs, as, of course, is their perrogative.

So we thought we'd mention that we're happy to take the big ones; the gentle giants of the canine world and also some of the breeds too that others might shy away from.

(We're happy with the little ones too!)

Inspection Visits

Before your dog(s) come to stay with us, we highly recommend that you - and especially they - pay us a visit to sniff us out.

This gives you the chance to see that everything meets your expectations, for us to better understand your dogs’ individual needs and, most importantly, it allows your dog to familiarise him/herself with the surroundings so that when they come to stay, it isn’t to a strange place.

Call us now! These visits are always absolutely no-obligation.

Teekee and Baloo

Teekee a very special lady

Baloo professional cat watcher

Recently returned for a couple of days day care, Teekee and Baloo. While Teekee found a quiet corner to curl up next to me, Baloo was back to his usual position watching cat Balu.

Smudge playing with Skie

Smudge and Baloo job-sharing my protection

Our latest new visitor was this lovely collie lad named Smudge. He played well with regular visitor, Skie. While Smudge was here for his holidays, old friends, Teekee and Baloo came for a couple of days day care and the two boys both wanted to be my personal guard dog.

Saturday lie-in: Boswell has fun jumping on and owning the lump in the bed.

Another of our recent visitors was Boswell, a year old sable - foxy coloured - collie boy. He was also here during Maia's stay and the pair of young dogs ran and chased and played and wrestled ... and it didn't take long for the smaller and younger Maia to get the better of Boswell, tackling him and rolling onto the ground, time and time again. And he loved it!

We met the lovely Maia before - incidentally, her sister is still looking for a home - and Maia has just been back for another stay. Here she is above after a few hours wrestling with Skie.

Maia rolls the big, strong Skie!

Butter wouldn't melt, would it?

Dylan and his toy in the garden.

This young man, then a 10 month old Cockerpoo, Dylan, has also stayed with us on a couple of occasions already. We're proud that most of our guests become regular visitors. Dylan is a lovely, sociable lad and enjoys friendly wrestling matches with our other guests.

Friendly wrestling, even if Dylan does try some underhand moves.
I reckon Skie wins by a submission!

Jake playing with Laddie's football.

Jake is my step-daughter's dog, who you may have seen before as the poster-boy on our ads and in our marketing materials. Now, he has to be entered on the register, just like any other visitor, when he comes to stay and has to muck in with any other guests we have staying.

Jake stealing Barry's bed. Obvious as he doesn't fit. At least he looks guilty!
Jake competing in the muddyest ever Collie contest!
Mud, glorious mud! Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood.

What do you mean spare room, surely it's my room?
Skie sunbathing on the decking.

Another pretty lady, Skie, a brown spotted Dalmation, has also spent the day or stayed with us on several occasions now. Her favourite thing to do is to sunbathe on the decking.

Look for the heart shaped spot in the middle of her shoulders!
