With our home boarding service, the emphasis is very much on 'home'. An alternative to kennels or a pet sitter, your dog will join Frankie & Benji in our home. They effectively become part of our family for the duration of their stay (and remain in our hearts forever).
Going away for an extended period can be stressful for you and your pets. We wish you to have the same freedom from worry that we want when leaving Frankie & Benji. So, when your dachshund comes to stay, our aim is to make them as comfortable as possible and reduce the natural anxiety they may feel in your absence. You can be confident they'll enjoy all the benefits of our daycare services and sleep tight in our secure and comfortably family home.
Because the maximum number of guest dogs we look after at any one time is four (and typically two), Dachshunds Daycare is very much a 'premium' service. Your dog will have our full attention, be given lots of love and a jam-packed entertainment schedule. We take pride in offering a true 'home from home', where your pet is genuinely treated as one of our family. Don't just take our word for it though, please take a look at our recommendations.
During the day, under supervision, your dog/s will have the companionship of our resident sausage dogs, Frankie & Benji. With access to our safe and secure dachshund-friendly home and back garden, they'll be given lots of opportunities to play, go for walks, rest and relax. At night, they will sleep as part of the family and you can choose which accommodation suits them best.
They can opt for the open-door luxury crate in the master bedroom, which is reserved for guests and comes with fresh linen (Frankie & Benji have their own identical arrangement as you can see in the photo gallery below). If your pet is used to sleeping downstairs, there are also lots of baskets and bedding within the dining room, which can be divided from the kitchen at night. Alternatively, you can provide their own bed, if that's what is most likely to keep them content while you’re away.
We'll even sneak a peek at bedtime, sending a photo to reassure & put your mind at rest
Dachshunds only. All dogs must be non-aggressive, comfortable in a group situation and able to socialise with other dogs. We can take intact females (out of season) and males (provided they do not mark or mount other dogs excessively). We are used to dealing with nervous dachshunds and love to watch them overcome their initial anxiety, learning to play and have fun with the other sausage dogs.
If you're planning to take a well-deserved break, why not give your dog/s a holiday too? Guest dogs settle quickly into our family and are soon enjoying fun and games with Frankie, Benji and the other dogs in our care. We'll send you plenty of updates to let you know how things are going - in fact, you'll probably find their social schedule is more hectic than yours! Standard weekday weekend daycare pricing applies, £25/£35 per dog per 24 hours. Bookings 7+ days receive 10% long stay discount.
Please note that you will be expected to provide your own food for your dog/s for the duration of their visit. To help prevent stomach upset, we require you to bring the food your dog is used to eating whenever possible. Please also provide complete feeding instructions on the customer registration form. We have a small kitchen with a refrigerator and can accommodate a wide variety of diets and preparations. We have a separate fridge and freezer for dog food, should you require it for a raw diet. If you wish your dogs to be fed Lily's Kitchen dry food (which Frankie & Benji eat), an additional charge will apply. All treats are provided free of charge.
We kindly request that you give us 7 DAYS notice for any ad hoc overnight bookings and 4 WEEKS notice if you wish to cancel holiday bookings (3+ days). Please note that failure to do so may result in you being charged the full rate.
