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.

    Having met Hazel beforehand I was very happy to leave our girl Ruby for the week. She was very flexible and her house dogs are lovely. I would definitely recommend.

    We were very happy to leave our boy with Hazel and her husband, they looked after him so well, he came back to us full of beans and slept for the rest of the day. I'd definitely recommend her and leave Bruno with Hazel again. Very professional and flexible times really suited our lifestyle.
