Dog boarding in Cockermouth

Why not book your dog/s into our home when you are away on holiday as an alternative to kennels. Your dogs will have full run of our ground floor, mature walled garden and live with us as a family member. Your dog is more than welcome to curl up on the sofa with us in the evening, try and help in the garden and check for crumbs at breakfast time!

Most dogs have enjoyed watching David Attenborough and getting excited listening to various theme tunes on the television. Classic FM also seems to be a winner. Haven’t tried one human and their dog on the box yet? We are licensed by Allerdale Borough Council and follow strict guidelines. All dogs must be fully vaccinated including kennel cough- yes, even for home boarding. The prevention of infectious diseases is taken seriously including parasites. Nexgard from the vets is the preferred treatment against fleas and ticks, this should be used once a month.

All food and bedding is to be provided by yourself to suit our every guests needs. Please let me know about any medication or mobility requirements. All dogs must be over a year old, friendly, house trained and well behaved. They will encounter our general daily lives, walks, outings, and dog friendly places to visit and eat. Photos and updates can be sent to you wherever in the world you are, internet allowing!!

We don’t offer a “daycare” service for your dog/s to drop-off and collect after work,  this blocks holiday options for clients going away for long periods. Alternatively see our dog walking page and ask about possibilities.
