Letting your dog play whilst you're away

Home Boarding
(Licence Number: 18/02884/ANIBOA)

Do you need someone to look after your dog(s) whilst you are away overnight or taking a well earned break?

Here at Dogfather Worcester we offer a 24 hour home from home dog boarding service, becoming part of our family and helping to reduce the stress of traditional  boarding kennels.  We have a large garden which is fully secure, dog friendly and designed for dogs to have fun.  Within the home there are multiple options to seperate dogs if they need a little down time or relaxation.

As fully licenced and inspected by Worcester City Council for home boarding, you can rest easy that your dogs will have all the home comforts, love, care and attention they deserve.

We are not a franchise and your dog is not placed with a different sitter, host or carer, but stays with us in our home and as part of our family.  Boarding dogs will also accompany me on my daily walks, having plenty of exercise, companionship and a snuggle after a busy day exploring.

Places are strictly limited and subject to conditions, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

For dogs which are unknown to us, a familiarisation session here at Dogfather Worcester is essential prior to boarding to ensure your dog will be happy and comfortable in our care and with our resident dogs.  This is at no additional cost and forms part of our licence conditions.  We are unable to accept last minute bookings for dogs which are unknown to us.

How to book

Contact us to check dates are potentially available.

Please download, complete and return the booking form and term & conditions.  Forms can be emailed to [email protected] or see our contact page for our postal address.

If possible, please also attach a copy of your vaccination card which is clearly legible.  This may be accepted any time up to the boarding date, but we CANNOT accept dogs without seeing a copy of their vaccination card or record.

Once your booking form/terms and conditions are received, we will confirm your booking.  Bookings are not confirmed until you have received notification from us.  At this time, we will also request a 50% booking deposit.

For all new doggy clients, a familiarisaton session is required prior to boarding and this will take place at our home.  This gives you the chance to meet us, ask any questions and see where your dog will be staying.  We will also assess how your dog will cope with our resident dogs in a controlled environment to ensure their stay is a happy one.  We will provide further details of the session when confirming your booking.
