HOLIDAYS FOR DOGS -      Established 2000
 
HOLIDAYS FOR DOGS
 
HOLIDAYS FOR DOGS is our Professional Home Boarding service,(established in CARTMEL in 2000), which has evolved from the exacting needs of our clients and their beloved dogs. Initially for dogs not suitable for traditional boarding ie, elderly, infirm, post op, nervous, medication reliant etc; but has now developed for all well behaved dogs who want  that ' just like home' experience.
 
 Each of our homes are situated in a stunning rural location in  CARTMEL , WITHERSLACK and LINDALE.
 
 
The care and safety of your dog is of paramount importance to us and we therefore insist that we get to know your dog and he us, BEFORE we board him.
 
 
Our team of professional carers have a lifetime of animal care,  have worked together as a team for almost ten years; are fully insured and can provide you with testimonials on request. We follow a strict code of conduct and duty of care. We have an open door policy and are available for inspection by official bodies at any time. Our business is fully insured and licenced with South Lakeland District Council.
Our code of conduct and Risk Assessment are available to view on request.
**********************************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE: IT IS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT THAT EACH INDIVDUAL HOME IS LICENCED. PLEASE ENSURE YOU EVIDENCE THIS BEFORE BOOKING WITH YOUR CHOSEN HOME BOARDING PROVIDER.
***************************************************************************************************
We have the approval of our local vets, with whom we have an excellent working relationship offering you further peace of mind.
 
 
Each home is clean, safe and completely dog friendly. The dogs live with us in our homes as they would do in their own, and enjoy a full and active holiday. Exercise is dependant on dogs ability but we guarantee a minimum of two exciting walks per day, and much more fun besides. After a busy day and evening meal they can relax in front of a real log fire and watch their favourite tv (!) and in summer can chill in the beautiful gardens .
************************************************************************************************
PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT  an agency or franchise. We do NOT place dogs in homes with children. All our team are mature professionals. We do NOT board out dogs to third parties.

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT BOARD ENTIRE (UN CASTRATED) MALES OVER THE AGE OF 12 MONTHS AND BITCHES IN SEASON

First meeting: We like to meet usually on neutral territory ie Cartmel park, so we can assess the dogs behaviour on and off lead and with other dogs. This is also a good time for owners to ask questions and in turn assess us. 
If all goes well , we will then go to host home for further assessment and for owner to inspect home and ask any questions.
When all paperwork is completed, we then arrange for the dog to have a trial 24hr stay at a later date, before holiday ,again so that both parties are satisfied that the dog will settle and be happy in the owners absence.
 
Trial run
The dog stays with host for 24hrs , has walks, play and feed etc.
On owners return, host decides on suitability of dog for their home ( only on rarest occasion have we had to decline- this was for dogs own safety).
The owner can then see for themselves the reaction of the dog and judge for themselves how settled he has been.
If all agree, the holiday booking can be made  . We then would ask that you make several more visits/walks with us (FOC) which enables a stress free transition for both dog and owner on day of departure.
 
It is ESSENTIAL we build a relationship with your dog BEFORE he boards with us.  We have NEVER asked  owners to collect their dogs before their due return  date nor have ever moved any dog into another boarding situation.
 
All dogs MUST be vaccinated  including Kennel Cough.
All dogs MUST be treated for fleas and wormed before arrival.
