Happy Chappies - Dog Boarding

About Hazel

I have a dog friendly house and have home boarded dogs for over 20 years. I used to own a kennels and cattery but turned the kennels into home boarding bedrooms as I hated the prospect of my dogs being locked up. I am checked out by the local council inspector every year in order to hold my licence and I am fully insured for my pets staying with me.

My normal routine is after a good night's sleep (sometimes) because as we all know our pets do not like being on their own, I have to admit some of my dogs have managed to climb upstairs and snuggle under the duvet. After breakfast we go for a walk over the heath which the dogs love and come back home for a doggy siesta. I have looked after dogs and home boarded them for a long time and they treat me as a second mum.

We must not forget our dinner "Happy Chappies" which can be supplied by the owner, which we relish after a busy day and have a full tummy ready for bed. At bedtime, which is around the time we all go to bed, the dogs have biscuits and cuddles and sleep peacefully having happy dreams.

I also operate a daycare service as I feel passionate that dogs do not stay "home alone" if possible. My hours are very flexible and fit around the owners work schedule. This has been very popular and my regular dogs start howling with excitement from a long way off and then bound in as though they are happy to be with me.

Thank you for reading my profile and I do hope you get a chance to visit my home.

    I had never left Freddie with anyone outside of my family before and I was quite nervous about doing so, however meeting Hazel & Brian, I was at immediately at ease. Thank you for looking after Freddie and for doing an amazing job. He looked very comfortable and happy in your home. I am very grateful.
