Welcome to our web site!
We offer something
a bit different from the normal Dog Boarding Kennels with seperate cells for dogs and or franchises where your dog is boarded
out to another persons home from their lists of 100`s of unlicensed people not the agent your contacting in the first instant
or website. Also in some cases you never get to see the actual dog boarder or their premises and they are not licensed
personally with their or your local council.. DOG HOME BOARDING KENT [ Est 1991 ]Being one of the pioneers of dog home
boarding small dogs in our own home as our own pet created local councils [ firstly Ashford Borough Council then Canterbury
City Council ] and others to copy our guidelines for licensing and starting a similar business.Do your checks before handing
your dog over to a stranger then if everything is in order you have peace of mind as our dog owners have who are registered
We offer your dog the free run of most of our home
and garden as if it was its own home.It is treated as though it is our pet and one of our family giving it lots of love,removing
all the stress of it being locked up in a cell like situation for hours and maybe days on end and here its exercised as it
would be at home.When dogs arrive here for repeat boarding they run in with tails wagging and straight out the garden to play
because they remember the love and care they had here on their last visit.There should be no tummy upsets because of a change
of diet as you supply its usual food and its exercised as is our own dog through the lovely surrounding countryside and sometimes
the local seashores and downs securely on a lead.We also take them out in the car to places further away for a change sometimes
if they dont suffer with travel sickness. The dogs also have the run of our house and garden.So as long as your
dog is small and clean with its toilet situation and vaccinated and can mix with other dogs without fighting, its welcome
in our home.
We do not take large dogs this is for the comfort
and care of the small dogs we look after, if your dog is not boisterous it can even watch TV with us.DOG HOME BOARDING
KENT was one of the first to carry out this type of dog boarding so much so that local councils did not even know what it
meant and have used our program of boarding to set their regulations to so that its done in a safe and animal friendly way .We
always carry out a sort of 20 minute audition before registering your dog with us to make sure it can mix with other dogs
this is for the well being of the dog when it stays with us and let you see where its staying.
Most dogs think they are on holiday with us as we treat them as though they where our own pets they are always pleased to
come back, most just rush straight in doors when they arrive leaving their owners standing in the drive amazed...[ You will
notice a lot of websites appearing using our phrasing which must mean we are carrying out Dog Home Boarding correct ]
WE ONLY BOARD SMALL DOGS [ upto about a Jack Russell size ]
REMEMBER YOUR DOG MUST
BE 100% CLEAN WE DONT WANT WEE AND POO IN THE HOUSE AND WE DONT WANT DOGS THAT BITE OTHER DOGS SO THEY HAVE TO BE 100% GOOD
MIXERS..AND IN GOOD HEALTH THIS IS FOR THE WELL BEING OF YOUR DOG AND ITS COMFORT WHILST IT IS BOARDED IN OUR HOME.WE DO LIKE
TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT CONSTANT BARKERS OR AT LEAST CAN BE CONTROLLED FROM BARKING BY COMMANDS.THIS IS FOR THE WELL BEING
OF ALL DOGS INCLUDING YOURS THANKS.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT SO YOU MUST BE HONEST WHEN THESE QUESTIONS ARE ASKED
AS ITS NOT FAIR ON US AND THE OTHER DOGS BEING BOARDED.
