Heather's Hounds, a happy holiday home for dogs.


About Heather

Please check my Dog Buddy calendar for dates still available.


LICENSED BY EASTLEIGH BOROUGH COUNCIL (Always ask to see proof of this from dog boarders). Experienced in caring for many breeds of dogs, for over 20 years. I am able to care for SMALL and MEDIUM sized dogs, from tiny Yorkshire Terriers to Standard Schnauzers and all breeds in between (as well as Heinz 57 varieties!).

I live in central Eastleigh with my husband John, in a modern, roomy, 3 bedroom townhouse. We have a safe enclosed back garden for the dog to enjoy. For walking we have a long tree-lined road (they love to stop and sniff each and every one). Then onto the local cemetery which is dog friendly, providing bins for dog waste. If the dog needs a longer walk there is a huge area near Fleming park. I will always endeavour to keep to the individual dog's routine (walks, feeding time etc). I will care for your dog like he/she was my own. Bathing or grooming if necessary and permitted. See Heather's Hounds on Facebook for more pictures.

* Please note I am licensed to take no more than ONE DOG so kindly disregard the pricing for second dog, (the website is unable to remove the facility).

* I should respectfully add that I need to see evidence from their Vets confirming ALL of the dogs inoculations are fully up to date. THIS IS FOR ANY DOG BEING BOARDED.

    Heather provides a real home from service. We couldn't have asked for more. She kept us updated with pictures and videos which was so reassuring as this was Archie's first stay and he seemed very content in his new surroundings. Heather went the extra mile by even bathing Archie the day before we picked him up. Many thanks again Heather and we will be more than happy to recommend you and book Archie with you again

    Heather went out of her way reassuring us throughout our holiday that Copper was ok as Heather knew we were worried about leaving him due to being a rescue dog who needs lots of attention and ball throwing. Would definitely recommend Heather and have already booked Heather to look after Copper again.

    Thank you Claire. We got to understand Copper and his 'character'. He's a sweet little thing and we're looking forward to seeing him again at Christmas.

    Once again Sweep was obviously very happy with Heather. I received photos and a video of Sweep whilst we were on our Holiday. Thank you Heather, as before, I would highly recommend you.
