If you don't think kennels are the most suitable place for your four legged friend then consider using our home boarding service.
What is home boarding - we have a network of fantastic host families that exclusively look after dogs for us, when their humans are on holiday. Your dog lives with them, in their home, as part of their family. Our host families are simply brilliant people and the one thing that they all have in common is their love and passion for dogs. They have been carefully selected and thoroughly vetted by us, in their homes, to ensure that they are able to provide and maintain the high standards of care that you would expect from a Wacky Hounds host home. All of our host homes are fully insured and where required, licenced by their local authority.
How it works - The starting point is to get in touch with us. One of our franchisees will come and visit you and your dog in your home, for an informal chat to discuss your exact requirements in a bit more detail. Once you are happy to proceed, we will register your dog with Wacky Hounds and arrange for you to meet your local host family. We will also arrange for a trial night's stay, to make sure that your dog and the host family are fully compatible*. After a successful night's stay, we will confirm your booking and your host home will be touch. You can then make your arrangements with them, for when is the most convenient time for you to drop off and pick up your dog.
So if you think that this would be the ideal solution for looking after your dog while you are away, then please check out our "find your nearest" section to find your local Wacky Hounds representative or "throw us a bone" and someone will get back to you within a wag of your tail!
* The fee for registration, which includes the cost of your trial night, is £30.

Perfect! Just Perfect! We would be more than happy to recommend Wacky Hounds to anyone who needs their services. Richard is friendly, helpful and most importantly, our dogs loved him. It was obvious they had had a wonderful time and were not stressed by our absence. Many many thanks." Mr & Mrs Raffel
The service we received was tailored to meet our specific needs. Richard's approach was professional but friendly and I would have no hesitation in using Wacky Hounds again or recommending their services to others." Mrs Armstrong
Wacky Hounds are a great service and excellent value for money. Thank you so much for taking great care of Fudge and for helping me through a stressful and upsetting time. The care and compassion that you showed meant a lot." Katie Smith
Peace of mind knowing Mungo & Tuli were able to stay at home and not have to go to kennels. Richard put our minds at ease and took control. We appreciated the text half way through our holiday letting us know the dogs were fine. Thank You." Tracy Craig
