Home Boarding

Does your dog run a mile when you mention kennels? At SpeedyGroom, we offer a pet-friendly alternative at an affordable price.

We will care for your dog(s), in our own home, giving them loving care while you are away, and giving you reassurance and peace of mind by providing a reliable service that you can trust time and time again.

A real ‘home-from-home’.

What To Expect

If you’ve never used our Home Boarding service before, we will encourage you to come for a short ‘meet & greet’ visit with us before you plan to go away. This way, your pet can familiarize themselves with the environment in advance.

During this first visit, we’ll go through the paperwork with you. You can complete everything whilst you’re here, or take the forms away to fill in at your convenience.

The Home Boarding Experience

Your dog will become part of our family for the duration of the time you are away. They will eat, exercise and relax with us and our little family of dogs. They will have the run of our home, as our own dogs do!

Obviously, there are some dogs who need a little extra consideration, and we will tailor their stay with us to meet these needs. We don’t usually use kennels unless your dog is specifically crate-trained, in which case we may ask you to bring your dog’s own crate for extra reassurance for them. We will ask you to provide their food for the stay.

Special Requirements

If your dog has any special requirements, such as medication, prescribed exercises (physio), special diet or any behavioral needs, we will discuss these fully with you. We understand that each dog has a very specific personality, and you can rest assured that your dog is in safe hands. We will make sure that we can accommodate any needs before confirming your booking.
