For dogs which are unknown to us, a familiarisation session here at Dogfather Worcester is essential prior to boarding to ensure your dog will be happy and comfortable in our care and with our resident dogs.  This is at no additional cost and forms part of our licence conditions.  We are unable to accept last minute bookings for dogs which are unknown to us.

Is my dog suitable for home boarding?

We accept dogs who are not aggressive, well socialised and are used to living as part of a family.  We require boarding dogs to be:

  • Fully vaccinated (including kennel cough) - a copy of the vaccination card will be required prior to boarding
  • Up to date with flea and worm treatment (vet recommended)
  • House trained
  • Fit to undertake daily walking on our walking route
  • To be spayed or neutered
  • Not under 6 months old
  • Looking to enjoy lots of fuss, fun and company whilst you are away
  • We also require their ID Chip no.  If this is not known, don't worry, we have a microchip scanner here and we can give you the number.

Licenced with Local Authority

DBS/CRB Checked

Canine First Aid Trained

Insured with PetPlan Sanctuary

What do I provide?

We ask owners to provide the following for boarding:

  • Their dog bowl and food to cover the duration.  Food can be provided at additional cost
  • Bedding, although beds are available here if required
  • Toys - again we have lots of toys, but something with a familiar smell can help to settle new dogs
  • Any medications, together with full instructions
  • Grooming brush for longer haired breeds

How to book

Contact us to check dates are potentially available.

Please either complete the
on-line booking form or download, complete and return the booking form and term & conditions.  Forms can be emailed to [email protected] or see our contact page for our postal address.

A copy of your vaccination card which is clearly legible will be required.  This may be accepted any time up to the boarding date, but we CANNOT accept dogs without seeing a copy of their vaccination card or record.  This can be emailed, posted or provided at your meet and greet session.

Once your booking form/terms and conditions are received, we will confirm your booking.  Bookings are not confirmed until you have received notification from us.  At this time, we will also request a 50% booking deposit.

For all new doggy clients, a familiarisaton session (meet and greet) is required prior to boarding and this will take place at our home.   We assess how your dog will cope with our resident dogs in a controlled environment to ensure their stay is a happy one.  We will provide further details of the session when confirming your booking.
