Dog home boarding Formby – the perfect alternative to kennels.

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 and who exceeds your expectations, so you can be confident that your pooch is cared for and contented whenever you’re away.

We love dogs and 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 worrisome place for dogs and dog owners and often people leave with little reassurance that their faithful friend will be shown the same love, care and affection they are shown at home.

Happy Holiday Homes for Dogs in FormbyFormby home boarding

Our network of thoroughly vetted host home boarding families in Formby will ensure that your dog has a great holiday whilst you’re away too! They will have been carefully selected and appropriate for your dog’s needs.

We’ve chosen all our host families based on their devotion to dogs. Our home boarders offer a one to one service for your pet and they are always at home during the day. They will treat your dog like one of the family.

You can rest assured that your dog will experience a happy holiday stay with their usual home comforts, including lots of love, care and attention. 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.

At Digs for Dogs our most important job is to ensure that dog owners can go away on holiday to relax and unwind, safe in the knowledge that their best friend is being loved and cared for. We have a passion for dogs of all shapes and sizes and we don’t mind if they regularly sleep in the bedroom or hide our favourite shoes, clamber on the furniture or get a little eager on walks and pull on the lead.

We’ll meet with you and your dog at your own home, at your convenience, so we can discuss various things in relation to your dogs. This will include daily routines such as exercise, sleeping and feeding schedules and we’ll also address any quirky behavioural traits he or she might have.

Your involvement into this process is vital and allows us to make the right match with one of our loving dog home boarding families in the Formby area. We understand that you will want to know where your dog will be staying whilst you are away and we take time to show you all of our dog-loving families in your local area

Host families are just like us, and they’re certain to meet our extremely high pet sitting standards and values. It’s your choice as to who your dog will stay with, and depending on his or her needs, whether they reside with a family that already has a dog or one that doesn’t. We want you, and your best friend to be completely happy.

If you have a puppy or an elderly dog, or a dog who must take regular medication you can be confident that their requirements will be met. Our home boarders provide around the clock care and attention and are always at home during the day. 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.

Home boarding for dogs is the perfect solution for dog owners that want to guarantee that their pets are being looked after by a loving family whilst they are away from home and unable to do so themselves.

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.
