About Louise

FULLY LICENSED home dog boarders by West Berkshire District Council
( Licence No: 17/01769/LWAA/EGM)

We are a very loving family who will treat your dog as our own, and can tailor their stay according to their needs.
As a couple who have looked after dogs for many years, and have the advantage of a huge fully enclosed garden (see pictures) for the dogs to play in, as well as many surrounding fields and farm for lovely walks.
We have a business together from home, therefore are there 24/7 to look after your special friend.
Please let us know if you have any special requirements, no request is too bizarre.
We offer pre-booked and last minute bookings for short-term stays and long- term holidays.

The house has a lovely kitchen with warm aga and cushions for the dogs to curl up next to in winter. We have a very friendly loving sausage dog and lab who love having friends over to play, and no other animals in house.
Your loved one will be taken for 2 walks per day around the surrounding fields and woodland, and then come back and have a lovely play in the garden, coming in and out of the house as they please.
Before your dog comes please give us his or her nutritional requirements and feed for their stay, and their regime/ likes/ dislikes.
Note that we ALWAYS meet and greet before your dog's stay to ensure that you and your dog feels comfortable.
Note we do not take:
- 'Entire' (uncastrated) males or females
- Dogs listed under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 (including the breeds: Pit bull, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Braziliero)
This ensures the safety and well-being of dogs in our home.

*Unfortunately we cannot take young dogs under the age of two years as they need a tremendous amount of individual time and attention, and we often have up to 4 guest dogs staying.

    What a wonderful treat for our elderly Border Collie cross, Oz! He was totally pampered by Louise and happy in the freedom to be out of doors or indoors as he wished at Milehouse Farm. We feel so very fortunate to have found the perfect home from home for our dog. Louise quickly responded to our queries and enabled us to relax and enjoy our break. Bliss all round!

    This was Monty’s first time staying with Louise and is already booked for a return visit. A great location with plenty of fresh air and exercise and doggy friends to play with. We were able to relax and enjoy our holiday knowing Monty was in very capable and loving hands.

    Our dogs' first stay with Louise and her family went well and the dogs are booked for another stay soon. Louise took note of each dog's individual needs and went out of her way to settle our nervous rescue dog. The environment for the dogs is fantastic and it is reassuring to know that the dogs are in the hands of someone who is calm and experienced.
