I am an approved dog boarder in Romsey, Hampshire. Your dog will be boarded in my home. This arrangement is much less stressful for your dog than kennels would be and dogs settle in very quickly using this arrangement. I will apply their usual routine for walking and feeding so, although the situation is different because they are in my home not yours, the way they are treated while they are with me is not.
I have two Anatolian Shepherds with me for the next week. Here is 52kg Alfie on day two, very relaxed and gently snoring!
