Licenced Home Dog Boarding

 
A licenced, luxury home from home environment with Auntie Kerry's Pet Services!
 
Your dog(s)* will be welcomed into our family home with Auntie Kerry, Uncle Rob and our three children. Your dog(s) will have the run of our house and secure garden... NO cages, kennels or cold concrete floors!
We will continue with your dog(s) normal daily routines and therefore the way in which we care for your dog(s) will depend upon your instructions. One thing for certain, your dog(s) will be given lots of love, fuss and cuddles. We do not encourage any bad habits so always check with you first whether your dog(s) are allowed upon the settee, upstairs etc
 
As a family home we can only accept friendly dogs and dogs that are happy to socialise with all other dogs. Lively dogs, large breeds, toy breeds, puppies and elderly dogs are all very welcome. If your puppy/dog  is used to sleeping in a crate, please provide this as we do not have any here.
 
Exercise
Your dog(s) will be exercised twice per day, whatever the weather. (unless stated by yourself). As a legal requirement your dog(s) must come with a lead, collar and identitiy name tag attached to their collar. We will also include our own boarding tags whilst your dog(s) are in our care. Your dog(s) also have constant access to our enclosed garden for them to play, sunbathe or whatever they choose to do. We also have an enclosed field where your dog(s) can roam freely without the worry of entire dogs pestering when your dog is in season!  
 
Feeding and Bedding
We are happy to receive your dogs bedding for the duration of their stay or we can provide our own beds, baskets, duvets etc. Please ensure though that anything that your dog(s) choose to bring has their name on as you can appreciate we have lots of food bowls, leads etc. Please supply their food in a bag or air tight container and state quantities and meal times on the booking form. You are more than welcome to supply your dog(s) with any of their favourite treats or with your permission we will give them ours. We do have a separate doggy fridge, where we can store tins of meat, chicken etc. All dogs are fed separately to avoid any greedy dogs having seconds.

Viewings and trial periods
You are more than welcome to come and view with a pre-arranged appointment, please telephone or email to book this. We do ask that you are punctual as obviously we do have dogs to exercise and other services to provide. For insurance purposes we are not able to accomodate any children during viewings. During the viewing, you will have the chance to look round, ask any questions and discuss your dog(s) daily routines. If you would like to proceed with the booking, we will suggest for your dog(s) to come round for a day to make sure he/she will be happy. We will collect and deliver your dog(s) once you have visited us.
Please note we do not offer viewings on weekends or evenings. These are arranged between 9:30am and 2:30pm Monday to Friday
 
Vaccinations
We will only accept dogs that are fully vaccinated and their vaccination card must remain with us during your dog(s) stay. If you have misplaced your card, please see your veterinary surgery for a duplicate. The kennel cough vaccination is optional and not a condition of our licence, however we do advise that your dog has this.
 
Medication
We are happy to administer medicines and/or tablets to your dog(s) with your written consent. Full instructions must be given on the appropriate section of our booking form.
 
Collection & Delivery  
We will collect and deliver your dog(s), free of charge in Torbay and Bristol. We still have family in Bristol so we can coincide seeing family with collecting and delivering your dog(s). A small cost will apply to those outside of Torbay, please telephone or email us to discuss this.
