Holiday Home for Pets - Dog Boarding Kennels

Looking after your dogs since 1983

Welcome to our dog boarding kennels in Newton Abbot

Caroline Gale started Holiday Home for Pets in April 1983, so has plenty of experience in caring for your pets. Originally Holiday Home for Pets catered for any small pet, cats, dogs, rabbits, snakes, birds and we even looked after some ducks and a vietnames pot bellied pig!

Over the years Caroline concentrated on just being a kennels and cattery, but 2015 saw Holiday Home for Pets become solely a boarding kennels and dog training school. Caroline knows that leaving your dog can be a traumatic experience for you and your beloved dog but hopefully after reading through the website you will be reassured that your dogs needs will be put first and he or she will be well cared for in a safe and loving environment with lots of regular exercise. Holiday home for pets aims to provide your dog a funfilled holiday with comfortable, spacious accommodation and lots of exercise and stimulation. All the dogs are exercised several times throughout the day with walks around our fields and woods and play sessions and ball games in the field. You are more than welcome to view the kennels but in order to keep disruption to the dogs routine to a minimum you will need to make an appointment so the dogs walks and play sessions are not interrupted.

When the kennels originally opened in 1983 the accommodation was your usual row of small prison like kennels, with each dog separated by just some wire mesh and the dogs taken out one at a time, on a lead, a couple times a day. Caroline is proud of the fact that Holiday Home for Pets has moved with the times and the accommodation now offered is spacious, not at all prison like, and each kennel has floor to ceiling partitions which means your dog wont be upset by its neighbour. However the main change is that the dogs are now exercised at least 4x daily in a large enclosed field, which means they can go off lead and if sociable can go out with other dogs. The dogs who stay here have a great time with lots of cuddles, fuss and exercise. As well as providing boarding facilities Caroline also does Doggy Day Care, and provides residential dog training as well as holds weekly puppy socialisation classes and 1:1 dog training lessons.
