When boarding your dog at Happywoof we want to make your doggies time with us as stress free, happy and as enjoyable as possible. They will be part of the family for the duration of their stay and will be very cared for in a home environment unlike dog boarding kennels. Because we are not dog boarding kennels we do not cage your dog. Instead your doggy is given lots of love and is free to move around. Why would you choose dog boarding kennels when your doggy can have that! We are the alternative to dog boarding kennels in London.

How does home dog boarding London services with Happywoof work and how do I book?

Once you contact us, we will organise a meet and greet with you and your doggy and you will then complete a home dog boarding London services agreement form. When you are happy to go ahead and board your doggy, we will require the cost of boarding on the first day of boarding. Then your dog is all set for a fun filled time!

At the end of your doggys stay, we will drop them back off to you happy and relaxed – and of course they will be ready for lots of your cuddles as a welcome home from you!

A typical days dog boarding service will involve whatever your dog normally does – so it may be a morning walk in the park followed by breakfast. Later on in the day we will have another little wonder around the area. We are ready for play anytime and will encourage this throughout the day if thats something your doggy would like! Dinner will be served in the evening. When your pet is ready to hit the hay he/she can do so in their own bed (brought from home to make the stay a familiar one). Our dog boarding services are simply great!

Throughout the day your doggy can either choose to relax, sleep or enjoy some play time in the garden – whatever they would normally do at home.

Please note for dog boarding all food/beds/toys/bowls etc to be supplied by the owner. 

In the event you need to cancel your dog boarding we would require 72 hours notice.

We will also require evidence that all your dogs vaccinations are up to date including the annual booster jab and kennels cough vaccine before they come to stay and bring along their vaccination record card with you.

You can get a free copy from your vets if you have misplaced it.

Your dog will require the following vaccinations:

  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Canine Parvovirus
  • Bordetella (kennel cough)

These ladies have recently looked after both our cat Joey (Cat visiting) and our little chihuahua Pip who spent a few days with them. Both were clearly relaxed when we came back and were happy around both of them enjoying playing with lots of affection. A bond is firmly established. Fantastic photos and messages. We have found great carers for our pets and I recommend them to anyone looking for pet care when they go away.

Great doggy boarding and walking service! Used for both half-board and full board when on holidays and we've been extremely happy every time. Even on short notice (in hospital for a week) they were happy to look after our puppy. Will definitely use again.

Rosalind & Pili have been taking care of our Yorkie for over 2 years and we couldn't ask for anyone better. Our dog is always happy to stay with them, loves the walks and pampering, and we are always kept up to date with a daily picture when we're away. I recommend them wholeheartedly!

I don't normally write these things but WOW, The girls had my 3.5 year old male french bulldog four four days AND during the crazy snow storm. I got consistent whatsapp updates, pics and videos. They were professional and clearly take great care and pride in their work and my boy. He even went in with a sore eye and came back cured following some medicine they had to administer three times a day. I have found a brilliant support network in Happy Woof and will be using them again. They definitely live up to their name.

My sweet dog Winnie, 18 months, stayed for over a month with the ladies at HappyWoof. The professionalism and kindness is 5 star. I had photo updates every day, something I really looked forward to every time I checked my mail. When I got her back, she was beautiful and relaxed and happy, I truly could not have imagined anyone better to take care of my dog. I feel so lucky to have found them!! Thank you x1,000,000!!!!!

They watched over our beloved pup for a few weeks and it couldn’t have been a better experience. Very professional, communicative, and most importantly they lovingly cared for our dog and showered her with attention. Highly recommended!

Fantastic experience with the lovely Happywoof ladies. Our nervous doggy boarded with them and they made sure that she was happy being away from us and that we were at ease knowing she was being thoroughly looked after. The daily photos and updates were great. Would absolutely recommend!
