Happy Pets Holidays - Dogs can play while you're away!


Happy Pets Holidays offers home boarding in our family home. We have recently moved a few miles away from Leatherhead to Bookham in Surrey.
If you want a short break away, business trip, family holiday, day care or even have to go into hospital, why not let me look after your dog in my loving family home. Home boarding is a nicer, stress free way of boarding your dog compared to a kennel. I provide 24hr care with plenty of socialisation that ensures your dog is safe and happy.
I understand that leaving your dog in a strange place can be quite worrying for you and also for some dogs it can be a bit stressful. This is why I offer trial sessions and as many odd day care days as you want leading up to the time you go for your holiday so that it makes coming here more familiar to your dog and you can see that they are happy and settled before you go away relieving any worries you may have. Usually by the time their holiday comes the dogs can't wait to get in the door!

Unlike a lot of home boarding facilities that often take on a lot of dogs, Happy Pets Holidays offer a personal service by only having a maximum of two dogs at a time for boarding making the group manageable  and means all dogs can have maximum attention. If you prefer you dog to be the only boarder this can also be arranged if booked in advance.
Your dog can then get to know my two Labradors and my 1yr old JRT in my home and enjoy their holiday, coming home to you well exercised, groomed and happy.

While you are away you will be sent regular texts or emails so that you know your dog is well and happy or if there are any problems. I will also take photos during their stay with us so you have pictures of their holiday too.

I have a secure garden and I always take the dogs for at least two long walks per day which is included in the price, all dogs are walked and not taken out in a car.

Trial Sessions
In the first instance I offer  free 'Meet and greet' so that you can meet us and see if the dogs get along. If this seems ok we can then book a trial session for a small fee. I always ask new dogs to come for a trial session as sometimes dogs just don't get on and I feel it's very important to assess how the dogs will interact with each other and if they are happy being away from you. Some dogs are just too anxious to be left.
You are under no obligation to book your dog holiday with Happy Pets Holidays by booking a trial session.

At your trial visit I ask you to complete a general health questionnaire which helps me to get to know more about your dog for when/if they come to stay such as their likes and dislikes, any fears or special requests and it enables me to get to know your dog better and help them settle in.
If all goes well I can then book your doggie holiday but if your dog is very anxious and doesn't settle then i'm sorry but I won't accept the booking. The dogs come first and I would rather turn a client away than have an unhappy dog.  

I offer 10% discount to OAP's, people on a low income benefit (with proof), and also if you are going into hospital (with proof)

Dogs we can or can't look after
Due to lack of space I do not take very large breeds, also I don't accept un-neutered males or bitches in season. Any male that is 'too frisky' with my girls will not be able to stay.
I will not take any dogs who appear to be aggressive. It is important to inform me if your dog has any food issues or any possessive tenancies so that these can be dealt with carefully.


I do not take puppies under 6 months old.                                                              
Your pet will receive the very best of care , they are part of your family and while they are with me they are treated as my family too.
