Home from home

Going away and don’t want to put your dogs in kennels? Treat your dog to a stay in our home from home.

Home from home dog boarding

We are cheaper than kennels, plus your dogs will get more love, walks and live inside our house alongside our 2 dogs and a small number of other dogs we are looking after.

We have been looking after dogs in Scarborough for over 11 years, fully licensed with Scarborough Borough Council (LICENSE NUMBER HBO003) and fully insured. Our home is your dog's 'home from home', so all dogs have the full run of the house along with our fully enclosed garden to play. This is combined with 2 hours of walks a day - although obviously I'll reduce this for older dogs. Before bed they can come to sit in the living room with us on the sofa just like our 2 dogs do.

We don't believe in locking dogs away and will never crate your dog’s up - unless you ask for it. A lot of boarding places crate dogs up without telling you - I DO NOT. Please feel free to come to see where your dog is going to stay before you book.

Drop off times are between 08:00 until 08:45 and pickup times are 16:00 - 17:30 Monday to Saturday. If you need times outside the pickup or drop off times please contact us, we are always happy to try and help you.
