Welcome to our website

We offer a relaxed, happy and friendly environment within our own home!!

I have known Dawn for a number of years and relied on her more times than I can mention. My dogs adore her and love nothing more than to be included on her daily walks. With a large garden and extensive woodland at her disposal they are spoilt rotten. She is very caring and adores all animals coming to the aid of sick and injured wildlife on many occasions. I would not hesitate to leave my dogs or cats in Dawns care I can be sure they are happy and cared for in a home from home environment.

Dawn is a born natural with dogs. I felt so relaxed and at ease leaving Lexi for 2wks. She is reliable, honest, trustworthy and treats every dog like her own!

Couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Thank you Dawn

Surrey Hills Luxury Dog Boarding is a second home for me.  I thoroughly enjoy my visits as I effectively become part of the family during my stay.  I get two walks a day, but more importantly I live in a large comfortable house which is particularly important to me as us Briards love company.  I now have two best friends in Bo and Tinga, the two resident Ridgebacks, who are gentle loveable dogs who welcome me into their home and who are great companions during my stay.  I could not now return to the more traditional “kennel” accommodation having been spoilt here.   Phinda, 2 year old Briard

About Us

Sadly we not accepting new clients at this time.


* Please check our social media for cancellations and Puppy sitting or advocacy day availability.


We are a ‘doggie’ family and were often asked to help out with friends dogs. Having suffered from a bad experience ourselves, as a family we felt uncomfortable about Dog Boarding/Kennelling options available to us and so the idea for Luxury Dog Boarding was born.

We offer a relaxed, happy and friendly environment within our own home (NO kennels!) We take a limited number of dog(s) enabling us to concentrate on their care and happiness.

Sitting in the Surrey hills and slightly off the beaten track, we have our own woodland and paddocks and we sit alongside 45 hectares of wonderful protected woodland and meadow walks.

Our Doggie guests are provided with varied walks, playtime and the very best of care.

We have a lot of experience of different dog breeds – from extra large to the smaller breeds and from puppies to the older dog.

Dogs deserve holidays too and their experiences of leaving there own family and home should be a happy and fulfilled one!

SHL Dog Boarding have been awarded 5Stars on our full licence with GBC.

Licence No: AWRL26

Why are we different?

Because we are passionate about what we do and a happy dog is our prime objective! We want your woof to have his or her own holiday! It is important to us that they are stimulated and happy not looking at the four walls of someone’s utility room or shut out of the way. A holiday in a fantastic environment with lots of regular and varied walks (Tailored for younger and older dogs), play time and love are a great recipe for success. It is important that you, as the owner are confident about your dogs’ welfare whilst you are away. If you wish we can provide text updates & pictures so that you can see your best friend is being well looked after! Regular grooming (and bathing when necessary) are also included in our care package at no additional cost.

On collection of your pet you will also be provided with your Dogs holiday pictures so that you can see how much they enjoyed their break.

Come and see us for a cup of tea or coffee (with your woof) and see for yourself what makes us different.
