Give A Dog A Holiday Home – Our dogs need you!

Are you a dog lover that can lend a paw by providing a loving holiday home to one of the family-friendly dogs whilst their owners are away on holiday or business?

The Digs for Dogs holiday home boarding service provides our pooches and their owners with the perfect alternative to kennels and has become so popular that we urgently need to expand our network of hosts now.

Being a home boarder brings all the benefits of having a dog at home but without the full-time responsibility of owning one yourself.

Become a home boarder today.

  • A dog is the perfect fun loving friend to keep you company
  • Walking a dog gives you a great reason to get out and exercise in the fresh air
  • If you’re already a dog owner, having a dog to stay can provide companionship for your own dog
  • Having a dog around the home is proven to reduce your stress levels
  • Taking a dog to your local dog walking spot can improve your social life

“Sadly my husband died last year, and following this I then had to have my last dog put down. I’ve had so many dogs over the years and of late I’ve been so lonely that becoming a home boarder has actually changed my life”

June, Ainsworth

Could you open up your home to a doggy for their holiday?

Digs for Dogs are looking for honest, reliable and trustworthy dog lovers that can welcome a four-legged friend into their home.

We meet with all our prospective home borders to discuss your previous experience with pets and to establish the types of dogs you would be happy to board. This ensures that we only ever offer you a dog that suits your current lifestyle and you’ll only need to accept bookings as and when you wish to.
You will be required to walk, feed and provide care for your guest as specified by their owners. Dog food, beds, leads and any other essentials will be provided at the beginning of their stay.

Some dogs will only require an overnight or weekend stay, whereas others might have their bags packed and be set for a holiday stay of over a week or more. Sometimes we will bring a dog to your home before their stay to give you the chance to get acquainted with your visitor and to ensure both you and the dog get along.

Digs for Dogs only provide boarding for well behaved, non-aggressive and house trained pooches. We are fully licenced and insured for your peace of mind.
