Dog Boarding


As Autumn takes hold, it is time to start planning those Christmas getaways and next year's Summer must-have breaks. We are always busy, so the sooner you plan your holidays and meet your dog's carer the better. The more notice you are able to give us ensures you will have more choice and be assured of the perfect carer!

Home from Home, established in 1996, is the largest home dog boarding agency covering London and the Home Counties. We were the first agency in the UK to offer this specialised service to discerning, caring dog owners. We have in excess of 20,000 satisfied and happy clients and 500 very carefully vetted carers on our register. We are highly recognised and respected within the pet industry and by Veterinary Surgeons.

We employ a dedicated, professional team who will be happy to thoroughly explain the service we offer, the booking process and who will ultimately give you the confidence to leave your beloved pet in our care with complete peace of mind.

Home from Home guarantees you the following so you can go away, relax and enjoy your holiday:

I’ve been meaning to contact you for ages to say we couldn’t be happier with the way Oscar was looked after by Graham & Jill over Christmas. It was very much home from home for him! It’s great to know that there is somewhere we can leave Oscar if we go away, and we wouldn’t hesitate to leave him with Graham & Jill again if they were available.

As before everything has gone smoothly. Harry was in fine form when we picked him up and Clive & Co. appear to have enjoyed his company. Many thanks for all your help.

Just to let you know that we met Rowena earlier and are delighted with her - what a lovely lady! Orla seemed very at home in Rowena’s flat and loved playing with her!
Thank you so much for arranging this for us.

Lindsey looked after our two girls Livvy and Grace while we went away for over 3 weeks. This was the first time we had used your company and your carer. We needn't have worried, the girls were extremely well looked after. I telephoned Lindsey once a week from Florida and she kept me informed. On one occasion I couldn't get hold of her so I left a message and she phoned me back, which was great. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and so did our girls. Thank you for recommending her, she was the right choice for us and our girls.
