Dog home boarding in Ashton in Makerfield – the perfect alternative to kennels.

We understand as dog owners ourselves, that leaving home for business or pleasure can be an anxious time for both you and your four legged furry friends. In our experience, kennels can be a frightening place for dogs and dog owners and often people leave with little reassurance that their loyal friend will be shown the same love and attention they are shown at home.

The Dog Home boarding service from Digs for Dogs is the perfect alternative to kennels. We match you and your dog with a host family you can trust, so you can be confident that your pooch is cared for and happy whenever you’re away.

Happy Holiday Homes for Dogs in Ashton in MakerfieldDog Home Boarding Wigan

Our network of carefully selected host home boarding families will ensure that whilst you’re away, your dog has a great holiday too!

We have carefully selected all of our host families based on their devotion to dogs. Our home boarders are always at home during the day and offer a one to one service for your pet.

Some of our host families have their own dogs and others have previously owned animals but now chose to provide a dog home boarding service rather than having a dog of their own on a full time basis. Either way, you can rest assured that your dog will enjoy a happy holiday stay with their usual home comforts and lots of love and attention.

At Digs for Dogs our most important role is to ensure that dog owners can go away on holiday and relax, safe in the knowledge that their pooch is being cared for and loved. We love dogs of all shapes and sizes and we really don’t mind if they sleep in the bedroom, regularly hide your favourite shoes, climb on the furniture or get excited on walks and pull on the lead.

We’ll arrange to meet you in your own home so we can take some detailed information on your dog. This will include his daily routines such as exercise, sleeping and feeding and we’ll also address any quirky behavioural traits he or she might have.

Your input into this process is important and means we can find the right match with one of our loving dog home boarding families in the Ashton-in-Makerfield area. We appreciate that you will want to know where your dog will be staying whilst you are away and will take some time to share information with you on all of our dog-loving families in your local area.

Host families are just like you and I, and they are guaranteed to meet our exceptionally high pet sitting standards. You will have the final decision as to where your pet stays and whether or not they reside with a family that already has a dog or one that doesn’t.

The Digs for Dogs team are in regular touch with our host families when they are looking after your most loyal and trusted friend and we’ll keep you updated during your time away if there’s anything you need to know. Our home boarders provide round the clock care and attention and are always at home during the day. If you have a puppy or an elderly dog, or a dog who has to take regular medication you can be confident that their needs will be met.

Home boarding for dogs is the perfect alternative to kennels for dog owners that want to ensure that their dogs are being looked after by a loving family whilst they are away from home.

Try a Sleepover

We can offer you an introductory sleepover for your dog if you’re booking a holiday and would like to try our home boarding service first. Having the peace of mind that your dog has settled will enable you to enjoy your holiday whilst your best friend enjoys their holiday too. Please ask for further information on this when you register your dog.

Door to Door Service

We will arrange to collect your dog on the date of your departure and transport them to their home boarding family in an air conditioned, dog friendly, fully insured vehicle. From experience we have found that your dog will settle so much more with their home boarder if we collect them rather than they would if you were dropping them off.

Pack a Suitcase

You will need to pack a suitcase with all of their usual belongings – bedding, bowls, lead, treats toys, – and you will also need to provide sufficient food for the duration of their stay. Your dog will also need to be up-to-date with their vaccinations, flea and worming treatments.

Keep in touch

We will keep in regular contact with the home boarder during your dogs’ stay and we will be on hand in case of any emergencies. We can also send you a text or email update with pictures to let you know how your dog is settling in with their home boarding family.
