Many thanks - the New Forest Dog Hotel team.

Why choose home dog boarding?

The New Forest Dog Hotel favicon


Your dog is part of your family, but when you go on holiday, they can't always come with you. That's where we can help. Rather than put your four-legged friend in kennels with many other dogs, or ask a friend to help you out - why not give them a holiday as nice as yours by boarding them at the New Forest Dog - Home dog boarding and dog sitters in Hampshire?

We're situated in the New Forest National Park, Hampshire - a great place for exercise and walks. We have an acre of fenced paddock that's ideal for ball chasing and your furry friend will stay in our adult-only home. We never have more than four guests, so you know your dog will have the love and attention they deserve whilst you're away. Now everyone in the family can enjoy the holiday they deserve!

Jan from Devon checked in her Border Terrier and German Short Haired Pointer and her Google review said…

“My only fear is that my dogs won’t want to come home after staying with Wayne and Scott.

Lovely gardens to run around in

and a comfortable caring home from home.”

Kate checked in her German Shepherd and said in her Google review…

“I was looking for somewhere that would be home from home for my German shepherd , and I certainly found it here. Wayne sent me photos and daily updates, and Tillie looked so happy and relaxed I was even concerned that she wouldn’t want to come home! She came home looking well, happy and healthy, and nicely groomed. Tillie loved staying with Wayne and the other dogs at the New Forest Dog Hotel, and will certainly be checking in again soon. Thanks Wayne , you made me and my girl so happy.”

‘”What an amazing, tranquil place.

Our dog Mouse really enjoyed his stay and Wayne and Scott have spoiled him rotten, a real home from home.

Thank you both so much for taking such good care of him.

This place really is a piece of doggie heaven. I’m not sure Mouse even wanted to come home….”

“Just collected our Freddie from the New Forest Dog Hotel. He’s obviously had a fantastic time and has been thoroughly spoilt by Wayne & Scott.
Totally recommend and thoroughly enjoyed receiving daily updates.
Perfect place for our boy to spend his holidays. Thank you!”

From Facebook

“Wow what a fantastic place. Wayne and Scott recently looked after our dog Enni for a few days for us.

She came back happy, relaxed and most of all tired!

The daily photo updates are a nice touch and I really looked forward to receiving them.

Enni will definitely be back to visit again soon…”

“A fantastic place to leave our puppy with confidence that he would have a great time

including the beautiful countryside for him to enjoy.

Wayne was so friendly and his daily updates were a welcome reassurance.

Highly recommended!”

“Superb place. Great facilities too. For my dog Max, it’s his home from home.

Wayne and Scott are caring, dedicated and very knowledgable about Max’s needs.

Max has such a good time there.

When I collect him and drive off he pines till I’m halfway home!”
