Would you like YOUR dog to be having just a great a holiday as you are? Now its possible with home dog boarding in Ilfracombe, a great alternative to dog kennels.
At Devon Dog Boarding our philosophy is that the dog is the heart of the home. Our dogs are used to human companionship, great walks, and the comfort of a warm family home. When we need to go away, be it for work or on holiday, we want to leave our dog in the same comfort they are used to. Many of us rely on family and friends, but in this busy age it’s not always possible and often we end up reluctantly putting our dogs in kennels.

Our formula for your dogs Happy Holiday!

With Devon Dog Boarding your dog stays with a real family enjoying all their regular creature comforts. We are a family run business and we aim to provide you and your dog with a ‘home from home’ experience. We wouldn’t want to leave our dogs anywhere we didn’t feel happy with, and we wouldn’t expect you to either!

Our costs are reasonable and there are no ‘hidden extras’. You can contact us for any reason, to make a booking enquiry or you can sign up to our newsletter.

Our host families in the Ilfracombe area

Our host families are carefully chosen and have to meet our strict criteria. They must be home based, have a secure garden, and love dogs. Ideally we like to place your dog close to their home location but it is more important to match the right hosts with the right dog. If required we can provide transport for your dog to and from the hosts.
