Avonside offers a safe, controlled and nurturing home environment, an alternative to boarding kennels.  I do not employ any host families so dogs always stay with me in my home along with my own dog George and resident cat Mojo.


Trail Stay

A free consultation will be arranged so that your dog can familiarise itself with the environment, and to introduce them to George, it is also a chance to go through the required paperwork.  This also allows me to ensure that every dog feels happy, content and interacts in a friendly way and for yourselves to have a look around and make sure you are happy with my setup.

Dogs Have Free Access to:-

  • Kitchen/utility/dinning area

  • Lounge

  • Dog beds/settee/armchairs

  • Outdoor garden area/lawn area



Owners are asked to provide their dog(s) regular food, enough for the duration of their stay and  bedding, this familiarity will help dogs maintain a healthy appetite and feel at home.


Meals are provided on an individual basis in line with their feeding habits when in their own homes.

Health, Safety & Hygiene.

Safety is paramount for each dog in my care.  The side gate is locked and padlocked as a extra safety precaution.  The garden and yard is secured with high wire fencing.


All dogs staying are required to be fully vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.  I am required by my licence and insurance to have a copy of your dogs vaccination card.


Dogs must be micro chipped by law

I will also provide a ID tag for the duration of your pets stay with me.

For dogs Boarding pick up and drop of times are 8.00am - 5.00pm I like to keep to within these hours as it gives the dogs time to settle with one another.
