Home Boarding

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.
