Dog Boarding in Hampshire

Home from Home is the leading dog boarding agency in Hampshire and we have been placing pets in carefully selected private family homes since 1996. Our service is available throughout Hampshire including Portsmouth, Southampton, Gosport, Bournemouth, Basingstoke, Farnborough, Lee on Solent, Winchester and the surrounding areas.

We offer a first class bespoke service which is unsurpassed within the industry. Your booking is tailor-made to your dog’s requirements and their needs are fully catered for by our carers and their family. Our aim is to introduce you to the ideal carer, who you will meet before your holiday or trip takes place, so that you can go away with confidence and peace of mind knowing that your dog could not be in better hands.

To take advantage of the service we offer all you have to do is register by clicking on the side panel which takes no more than 10 minutes. We require your contact details including an emergency number whilst you are away and your vet's details.

There is a simple questionnaire to complete about your dog allowing you to give us as much information as you wish. The more information you provide the better as this helps us match your dog to the most suitable carer to ensure your pet has a great stay.

A. When did you join Home from Home?
We joined ‘Home from Home’ early in the summer of 2013.

B. What made you decide that you wanted to look after other people’s dogs?
My husband and I have had dogs whilst growing up as children and constantly throughout our life together. At one point we had an Irish Setter and two Yorkie/Bichon crosses, all of whom lived to good ages, 14, 13 and 17….. After the last one passed away in 2007 we found we enjoyed the freedom afforded us by not having to look after dogs 24/7 and 365 days a year. We therefore decided not to get another animal of our own. However, after a few years and with retirement approaching we began to miss the fun and companionship that comes with owning a dog. By chance we saw a ‘Home from Home’ advertisement in a local newspaper asking for people interested in dog caring to get in touch. It occurred to us that this might be the solution to our problem as we could enjoy having dogs in our home but also have the freedom to enjoy other pursuits as and when we wanted. We contacted ‘Home from Home’ and were accepted as carers and have never looked back since.

C. What do you like most about working with us?
We particularly enjoy working with ‘Home from Home’ because all the staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. The agency is very proactive in obtaining clients which means we have a good supply of dogs to look after but are never pressured into accepting an animal when we say we are unavailable. It is also very reassuring to know that ‘Home from Home’ has all it’s carers covered by a single insurance policy.

A. When did you join Home from Home?
We joined in response to an advert for carers in 2014.

B. What made you decide that you wanted to look after other people’s dogs?
We are a family of six and had never thought of getting a dog of our own because of sport participation and holidays, which occupied us all.
However, as our sons got older and learned to look after themselves more, we found that our understanding and love of animals meant that local people started to ask us if we could look after their dogs during holidays.
And the same dogs usually come back again and again. They love being with us for all the attention they get and because they feel so “at home”.

C. What do you like most about working with us?
Home from Home clients are always sure of what they can expect from us as their clients are looking for a special place for their dog to stay in safety, while they are away. The staff at Home from Home are thorough in ensuring that we can facilitate the dogs stay and provide the utmost care and attention which is nothing less than it should be. Everyone’s dog is a precious family member and is treated as such.

We were very happy with the service from 'Home from Home' and felt that it really was like home from home but with a lovely caring lady.

Yogi was very happy and his every need was met.
