Welcome to a kinder alternative to boarding kennels

We care for your Dog in a loving home environment – no kennels and no confinement

Thank you for visiting our website

The Happy Hounds House is the perfect solution for dogs (or owners!) that don’t cope well with the caged environment of boarding kennels.

We open our home to your much-loved pet with no kennels and no confinement, welcoming them to live as one of the family and to enjoy the creature comforts that they would enjoy in their own home.

Fully licensed by North East Derbyshire District Council and comprehensive cover with Public Liability Insurance. We provide a safe and loving holiday home for your dogs so that you can relax and enjoy your break with complete peace of mind.

J Dun with Ladybug – Dronfield

Lindsey looks after our ‘Ladybug’ as if she were her own dog.  She is flexible, caring and very experienced.  We trust HHH completely! Simply top class!

V Shaw with Ruby and Jake – Coal Aston

Highly recommended home-from-home atmosphere.  My two love it at The Happy Hounds House; I wouldn’t leave them anywhere else.  I feel completely at ease when I’m away as they are extremely well looked after, in fact, they always want to stay longer with Auntie Lindsey! ☺


Services that we provide

We never accept any aggressive dogs, or any breeds that are classed as ‘fighting breeds’, as the safety of the dogs in our care is always paramount.

Unless an owner specifies only one walk per day e.g., for our older guests, then we do walk once in the morning, and again in the afternoon/evening. For the shorter walks, we have a lovely park nearby.

For longer walks we take the ten-minute drive to the Longshaw Estate in Derbyshire. Our outdoor area is completely safe and secure, and is accessible all day for the dogs to come and go as they please.

Making a Booking

We always insist on an initial visit to us, before making any bookings, so that you can see our facilities and the service that we offer, and ask any questions that you may have.

It is also an opportunity for us to meet your dog and to make sure that they are happy to mix with our other guests.
