Dottie's Small Animal Boarding

Welcome to our website.

We are a small family run business (fully insured), boarding mainly Rabbits and Guinea Pigs from our home in Rugby.  Smaller furries , ie budgies, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats etc can be accommodated on request. 

We also offer House/Pet Sitting in your Home, either for a few hours or for overnight stays.  I am DBS checked and have 2 Animal First Aid certificates (1 practical and 1 theory).  I have over 30 years experience of owning, training and competing in various disciplines with dogs.  I am also a Kennel Club Good Citizen trainer and Judge at our local Dog Training Club.

Unfortunately, we cannot board any exotics. 

We are open all year, and our busiest times are school holidays and Christmas, so be sure to book early.

We have 2 Guinea Pigs: Charlie & Caramel who we adopted from Warwickshire Rabbits & Guinea Pigs SOS.  We also share our home with 4 dogs and a cat, who are kept separate from the little ones. 

Your beloved pets will be looked after as part of our family.  

Only the Guinea Pigs have various custom made hutches, Rabbits are in individual enclosures which are inside one of two large covered and secure runs.  We can accommodate one or a family of guinea pigs & rabbits (including Giants) quite comfortably.

In extreme cold we give them a heat pad to keep them warm and in hot weather everyone is given frozen water bottles to keep cool.

All accommodation is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each boarding.  We use Anigene disinfectant which is safe for animals.

Please look through our pages and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

*** If you make a booking with us and for whatever reason you no longer wish to keep it, please let us know so we are not left waiting for you and we can then release the accommodation for someone else. ***
