Toby is a nervous rescue dog but I felt at ease leaving him with Hounds and Veterans. Highly recommend! He can't wait to come back in July for his holiday. Thank you for taking great care of him during his trial night.

This week my young lab had 4 days of doggie day care inc 2 overnight stays with Georgina. From the outset of the initial meet and greet it was clear Coco was going to have the best time. She was very well cared for, exercised and met new doggie friends in a safe environment. She had lots of fun with gentle giant Jack and the photos sent during her stay was very reassuring that Coco was enjoying herself. Thank you Georgina (and Jack) and see you again soon.
Georgina looked after our Luna whilst we were away and we have to say what a fabulous service she provides. Very professional in every way, and from the very start with the meet and greet we knew we would let her look after Luna. Many updates and photos were sent to keep us informed and happy that Luna was is safe hands. Jack was a fabulous, gentle friend for her during her stay so much she didn't want to come home. We will be using Hounds & Veterans again. That's for sure.

Hounds and Veterans in Westbourne, offer a brilliant dog sitting, boarding service and I have no hesitation in recommending them. It is clear how much experience and care George has for dogs. She really knows how to take care of them and offers such a great home from home experience. Brodie, was dropped off again this morning and after his overnight stay and early morning hike. He clearly loved playing with Jack and another dog there. I will definitely be using Hounds and Veterans again, knowing that our dog is in very capable hands. Thanks for the video updates too George, great to see how they all played so well together.
