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.

Is my dog suitable for home boarding?

We accept dogs who are not aggressive, well socialised and are used to living as part of a family.  We require boarding dogs to be:

  • Up to date with flea and worm treatment (vet recommended)
  • House trained
  • Fit to undertake daily walking on our walking route
  • To be spayed or neutered
  • Not under 6 months old
  • Looking to enjoy lots of fuss, fun and company whilst you are away
  • We also require their ID Chip no.  If this is not known, don't worry, we have a microchip scanner here and we can give you the number.
