About Us

Our aim is to offer you a choice of your local and most suitable carer available to you and your dog. We will invite you to meet us first so everyone can get to know each other and most importantly, your dog can have a good sniff around and know that you are relaxed and happy in the environment too.

Your dog will become part of our family and as the only guest dog (or dogs if you have 2) staying, they will enjoy a home that is matched to their needs to ensure they are as happy there as they are at home. So when you drop your much loved pet off for their stay, they will have a smooth transition from home to holiday! Your dog will receive one-to-one care and companionship and be treated like a member of the family, ensuring you can have a relaxing worry-free holiday while your dog is enjoying long walks and cuddles!

We are passionate about offering you an exceptional holiday stay for your dog and are there to help you and your dog have a stress-free stay with one of our carers.

  • We just returned from a lovely week in the sun, whilst we were away we left our precious pooch Archie with Noreen in Darlington. We received texts and a picture of Archie chilling out after a lovely long walk, it’s great to find someone who we can leave Archie with and feel completely happy that he is being well cared for. We will have no hesitation in using Noreen and Holidays 4 Dogs next time we go away.

  • This was the first time I have used Holidays 4 Dogs and I was so pleased. I was very anxious leaving my puppy but Mark and Janice made me feel very at ease, I could tell by the first meet that Raffy would love his stay and he did. I will definitely be using Holidays 4 dogs again in the future and I would love for Raffy to stay with the same people as they were so friendly and welcoming. He well and truly loved his stay.

  • As an elderly dog Sasha used to get very stressed in kennels. Having picked her up today I have never seen her so happy and relaxed after we’ve been away. I will definitely be using Holidays 4 Dogs again. Thanks Jane and George.

  • Wow what can I say?! Highly recommended and matched to a carer that met my needs (even though they probably thought I was crazy). The carer took my dog into her home and he loved it, the walks and the company! Loved getting daily emails and photos so we weren’t worrying! 10/10

  • Lovely people! Welcomed me and my dog warmly. Nothing was too much trouble. Lots of walks, plus a text to let me know dog settled well the first evening. Also very flexible about pick up time. We would thoroughly recommend and certainly hope to board with them again. 5* service.

  • Thank you so much to Gary for looking after Lola for us while we went on holiday. We didn’t have any worries and knew she would be happy and have fun! We will definitely be recommending to friends and family, will also use again.  Fantastic Holidays4Dogs!

  • Pea has just returned from her second fabulous holiday with Mark and Jan and their two dogs Beauty and Dina. She didn’t want to come home! I wish I’d known about this service when I had my Cocker spaniel Max. Pea thoroughly enjoyed herself with Mark and Jan and has a special friendship with Beauty that needs to be seen to be believed. It was two months since they’d since each other but they were instantly all ‘loved up’!

  • My dog Boots has just spent a week with Jane and George whilst I went on holiday. This was the first time I'd used a pet minding service as family had always stayed with him in the past. I felt immediately at ease with both Jane and George when Boots and I went for the initial meeting prior to confirming his reservation. It was clearly obvious that Jane and George were dog lovers, they asked lots of questions on his likes and dislikes and generally wanted to get to know him. 

  • This was the first time I had left Mac with other than friends, but he has made friends. The organisation was smooth, I was kept fully involved and Carol obviously did a great job looking after him. He seemed reluctant to leave! I will happily leave him with her again, and would recommend the service to others.

  • The best kennel alternative out there. Charlie had a lovely time and we would be more than happy to send him again. The constant picture updates really helped put our minds at ease

  • Wilma our Miniature Schnauzer has just enjoyed her very first 4 day break away with Jane and George from Holidays4Dogs. Being able to see lots of photos of her having a brilliant time on her numerous walks during her stay with them, we could tell she was loving every minute of it and was obviously very well cared for and loved during our absence. This was really reassuring for us as it's the first time she's been left with people she didn't really know. We wouldn't hesitate to use this fantastic facility again and would definitely recommend it as an alternative to kennels.

  • My very first holiday away! I had a brilliant time. Thank you to Polly's carer Carol. I'm truly looking forward to my next holiday can't wait. Also a big big thank you to Jane at Holidays4Dogs Teesside and Darlington who made it all possible . Even with the short notice Carol was able to accommodate my beautiful princess Polly THANK YOU.

  • We would like to Thank Roz and Colin and Henley for looking after our little Frank over Christmas and New Year . Home from home and they even let him sleep on their bed ..truly spoilt!

  • My husband and I were delighted at the care our dog Amber received whist staying with Lynne. We would rate her as 10 out of 10!  She was especially thoughtful at letting us know how Amber was settling in as she knew we were anxious about leaving her for such a long period (almost 3 weeks).  I would definitely have no reservations about Amber returning to Lynne for future stays. Being able to access carers calendars direct is very useful

  • Jane Dunn has been absolutely fantastic supporting our family find appropriate accommodation for our Pip. He was always spoilt and never seemed unsettled when returned from holiday.

  • Jane and George were absolutely wonderful looking after Emily for the week. She was so happy with them that she wasn't in any rush to go home. Definitely a good sign of how well they have treated her. 100% recommendation from me!
