Many people worry about putting their dogs in kennels as some dogs find the experience extremely stressful, Home Boarding is a popular alternative! Your dog will live at our homes with our dogs, as part of our families. We can cater for any size dog and specialise in Home Boarding for Gun Dogs (Amanda and Tony) and Sight Hounds (Gill). We will endeavour to maintain your dogs routines as much as possible so they feel happy and contented.
Prior to Boarding with us we arrange a free “Meet & Greet” for our dogs to meet yours, these visits are at no charge. It is important to establish that your dog and our family homes are the correct place for she or him to stay.
South Oxon Pet Services (SOPS) Home Boarding aim to give you peace of mind that your dog will have a great time, as will you, whilst away! Dogs are walked twice daily and any of your usual routine can be fulfilled if you require. Knowing that your dog is holidaying as well with a structured happy routine will make your holiday stress free not worrying about your pet.
SOPS never use host families, your dog will stay with myself, Gill or May we are fully insured, CRB, first aid trained and licensed for Home Boarding by our local District Councils.

What do I bring?
Not too much just his or hers clean bed, their usual food, a collar with ID on it. All dogs that board with us must be up to date with their vaccinations including Kennel Cough, wormed and treated with a branded flea treatment like Frontline before they can board.
A daily photo blog will be posted on Facebook so you can keep an eye on your dog’s holiday whilst you're enjoying yours! Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Please note that both Amanda and Gill are unable to home board entire males.
Places are limited so we recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment.
