About Us


boarding kennels alternativeThe concept, “Home from home alternative to boarding kennels”. I absolutely love dogs and so I totally understand the anxiety of leaving your beloved pet behind when you have to travel or be away from home.

I have owned Clumber spaniels for the last sixteen years and have spent much time worrying about care for them when I am on holiday or away on business.

I have always been concerned about my dogs being lonely or unhappy and so I have used my own personal experiences and those of my dog loving friends and family and have created Happy Hounds as a real home from home alternative to boarding kennels in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Happy Hounds is set up with the absolute priority of ensuring your pet dogs are in a safe and secure home environment and one where they will have lots of fun and companionship with a dog loving host or family.

My mission is to give you peace of mind when you’re away from home by offering you and your dogs an individually tailored holiday alternative to kennel boarding experience.

If you’re a massive dog lover but can’t commit to having a dog full time, why not consider becoming a Host Dog Carer? Enjoy the companionship of a ‘holiday hound’ in your own home and also benefit from additional exercise and meeting people when you’re out.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information or an informal chat. Thank you for visiting Happy Hounds – we look forward to hearing from you!
