DogBasics offers a home boarding service in Ovington, Norfolk, IP25 6RZ. We don't have any kennels, the dogs stay with us in the house as part of our family. While you are on holiday, we can provide a safe haven for your dog until you come home. Your dog will be thoroughly pampered and have exciting days of activation, leaving him tired and relaxed at the end of the day.
All the photos I take of the dogs in my care will be added to the online photo album. Click here to see what previous boarding and day care dogs have been up to in our care...
When you go away, give your dog a holiday too. Your dog will live in the house with us and will get walks, fun exercises, play, relaxation sessions and lots of TLC. No kennels in sight (unless one of the other boarding dogs have arrived with a crate in tow)! The dogs are never left unsupervised, even at night (I always sleep in the room with them).
We can take dogs with problem behaviours, but we can very rarely help with dogs with dog-dog aggression. If we don't have any other dogs booked for the dates you are looking for, we will be happy to consider a dog with dog to dog aggression issues.
We can deal with dogs with separation anxiety and boredome chewers. There is someone with the dogs at all times, including night time.
We are certified by Breckland Council. You can see our licence here.
Bookings are made via email. Once we have agreed on days and dates, you will be invoiced on a montly basis, in advance. Once we have received payment for the invoice, your booking is secure. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We won't take on more than 4 dogs per day. Your dog will get plenty of one 2 one attention.
Our regular crowd is between 1 - 6 years, but we will take on puppies and dogs of any age.
Due to caring for mainly medium or larger breed dogs, we prefer dogs of Springer Spaniel to Labradoodle size. We will consider miniature breeds too, providing they are confident and can cope with a group of big dogs.
Our licence with the council prevents us from taking on any dogs under the Dangerous Dogs Act, but that doesn't mean we agree with that law!
Not usually, but there are exeptions. Please ask, if this is a service you require.
Our address is Water End Farm, Church Road, Ovington, Norfolk, IP25 6RZ.
We offer a few extras for your dog. We can cut your dogs claws for you, free of charge, as long as your dog doesn't have any major issues with his claws/paws. If your dog DOES have issues with his claws/paws, we would be happy to show you how to rehabilitate them.
We can also give your dog a shampoo at an extra charge of £5.
Please try our other site, LocalPetPeople.com, where lots of other dog sitters, dog walkers, house sitters, dog day care and other pet services are advertised. The dog sitters and walkers that we know personally and can recommend, will have a dark yellow background to their ads. They can mainly be found on the East Anglia page. Please use your common sense and make sure to visit with your dog before you book.
