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 with us.
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.
