About you and your home

(If not the owner of the property has to grant permission in writing to us)

Canine & Co Home Boarding prefer to recruit carers who are flexible about the size and type of the dog which they are boarding.  Could you fill in the following questions giving as much information as possible to help us ensure that we place the right dogs with the right carers.

What is Home Boarding?

Clients who use Canine & Co prefer not to put their dogs into traditional dog-leadboarding kennels and are looking to put their pets in a safe, clean and caring family home. We pride ourselves on the service we offer and have an excellent reputation with superb feedback from our clients and their pets.

Dogs who are placed in our care are fully house trained and non aggressive. We only accept large dogs who are calm, placid and well behaved. As a carer you will be able to specify which breeds of dogs fit in with your lifestyle best.

We are flexible and will be happy for you to take just an occasional dog or we can approach you with as many bookings as you like. Carers do have regular dogs that they care for time and time again however, this is not regular work; some of our bookings are just for weekends and others can be for over a month at a time. The choice is yours.

We provide you with a full emergency back up service 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, so that should any problems occur you can contact us at any time.

It takes a special kind of person to be a dog carer and our fantastic dog carer’s are at the heart of our business and we simply couldn’t do what we do without them.

What is a dog carer?

Our approved dog carers love to care for a guest dog in their home whilst earning a supplementary income, perhaps adding to a pension, a contribution to the family Dog Home Boardingincome or even just a bit of ‘me’ money! As a carer, you will be expected to feed, walk and care for the dogs as would their owners. The questionnaire the owner completes gives lots of information about their dog’s temperament and habits. This information is passed onto you. You will get to meet the dog before the booking starts to ensure that you are happy. You have the option to reject the booking once you have met the dog if you feel uncomfortable.
This is an opportunity for you to commit to the role of being a Canine & Co dog carer. If you love dogs and have time at home this is the job for you.
