About Bonny

We're an active family of 4 (including a 2 and 7 year old) plus our own dachshund Dusty who likes Lots of cuddles, sleeping and barking at everything! We walk regularly at Hatfield Forest National Trust (only 1 minute walk) and go for many adventures in the beautiful countryside in our area. All the dogs enjoy wondering deep into the forest till there's not a road in sight! We have a garden big enough for running and playing which we spend alot of time in.
I'm at home most days so me and my family provide great companionship and love to get out and about or just play in the garden.
We offer the perfect break or weekend getaway for your furry friend with lots of love, games, and new sights and sounds. We're also perfectly situated if you're flying out from Stansted (only 10 minute drive) but don't worry we're not under any flight paths so your dog won't be bothered by any loud noises.

A typical day at our home starts at around 6am straight out to the garden then breakfast all round, we'll either have a morning/ evening shorter walk or 1 longer trip to the forest everyday followed by relaxing and playing in the garden. You'll be sure to get updates every day to track the walks which we've had and plenty of pictures and videos! I love capturing beautiful pictures of our guests and there's always a spare sausage or burger as a treat. We have some apple trees at the back of the garden, plus plenty of sticks and balls. - Today we enjoyed a dog friendly swim and dig at Mersea beach!

Our home would best suit a sociable dog as we will pass plenty of other owners in the forest however I'm happy to schedule walks during qyieter times if they have a more nervous temperment.
For Guests staying a week or more I'll make sure your furbaby enjoys a delicious selection of treats from the homemade delights of Bishops Stortford Barkery.

    Our Ted at nearly 8 yrs has never stayed away from our house before so we were worried about leaving him. We need not have worried as Bonny took great care of him and sent us daily updates of walks and videos & photos where he looked so happy with doggy friends, Bonny’s family and the lovely forest walks. I would highly recommend Bonny & should the need arise 100% send Ted back to Bonny. Thank you so much Bonny and for the pawsecco x

    A tad nervous leaving Max as I've never used boarding before for my dogs. However Bonny was fantastic sending me updates and he was clearly very happy. She listened to my comments on his querks-he has guard dog traits, and as a result all went well. To the extent not sure he wanted to come home! We will be using Bonny again. Wonderful environment for a large dog who needs to run. Susanne

    Bonnie (our puppy) had a beautiful time with Bonny and her family.! e got lots of pictures and videos and updates of their long walks in the nearby forest, and her playing with other puppies. Really convenient location as we were flying out of Stansted which is only 10 mins away. Will definitely be back! Thanks Bonny xoxo
