We offer Boarding, Walking & Sitting/drop ins (in your home) for your dogs in the Southampton area.
Dog Boarding (based in Thornhill and Awbridge)
In our boarding service, your dog will enjoy a homely family environment in our homes with our lovely friendly doggies.
They will join us on daily walks to local parks and woods as well as our own inside and outside spaces for running, playing and chilling in.
We aim to keep your dog exercised physically and mentally during the day as well as their much needed rest and relaxation. We all love to snuggle together in the evening and your furry friend will be included in this.
Your fur baby will form part of our family whilst they are with Dishys K9 Care so that they feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable!
Dog Walking (East side of Southampton - e.g. Thornhill, Hedge End, Bitterne etc..)
Our dog walker, will collect your furry pals to take them for a lovely walk, either for half hour or an hour (whatever you require) and return them to you exercised and happy. She will also ensure they have plenty of water and they will travel comfortably and safely in her adapted car for dogs. Both group and solo walks available.
Dog/Puppy Sitting (East side of Southampton - e.g. Thornhill, Hedge End, Bitterne)
We offer drop ins to your home for either half hour or an hour at a time to sit with your puppies/dogs, let them out if they need to, a short walk (as required) and generally make sure their needs are catered for. You may wish to use this service whilst you are at work or out for the evening.
