Thank you so much for looking after Fred for the 2 weeks we were on holiday!! Fred had an absolute ball and we can clearly see the love and care that you put into all the animals in your care. We loved the litte text messages and videos that you sent us not to mention the final CD wich is amazing. I can't thank you enough and you have managed to win over the most sceptical of husbands!! Cristina

Tigger is a 4 year old English Springer Spaniel who had never stayed away from home. We were impressed with the care with which the home owners evaluated if he would be suitable and with the love and care they give to the few dogs they take into their home at a time. Tigger obviously enjoyed his stay, was walked and groomed regularly and we will definitely book him in again when we go away again. Philip Roberts

Tessa stayed with the family and it was wonderful to see the video from abroad knowing she was happy and enjoying herself, thank you so much! Anne Galewski

14 September 2012

A huge thank you to Joe & Karina for looking after Riley, our Irish Red & White Setter, this summer. He had a fabulous time and I felt sooo comfortable leaving him at the Puppy Dog Hotel. He was so clearly treated as part of the family which was lovely to see. Joe & Karina have such affection for all the dogs in their care. Maya

19 June 2012

We have just collected Thomas from the Puppy Dog Hotel and I cannot thank them enough for the wonderful care that they offer. Once again Thomas has returned home happy. Leaving a beloved pet is stressful when you go away but leaving him with Karina and family means we can all truly relax.. I cannot recommend the Puppy Dog Hotel too highly and will certainly send Thomas there next time. Lillian Hunter

29 February 2012

Thank you so much to Joe and Karina who looked after our much loved dog. He is very much part of the family and we couldnt have chosen a better home to leave him in while we went on holiday. It was very important that Zimba (our dog) went to a home rather than a kennel and this is exactly what Puppy Dog Hotel offered, a home from home service. Highly recommended. Paige

27 July 2011

Thank you so much to Joe, Karina, Kira and Amelia at The Puppy Dog hotel for making Aussie's stay such a happy one. She loved playing with all the dogs, and she loved the care and kind attention and games, walks, and treats given to her. She couldnt have had a better time - a real home from home, and we were so happy to be able to see the youtube footage posted of her playing in the fields. Alan and Liz

25 March 2010

The Puppy Dog Hotel is a fantastic find and we cannot recommend it highly enough. We are posting this after Alfie's second stay and once again he has come home a better trained dog. Joe, Karina and family are extremely knowledgeable and it is wonderful to be able to go on holiday with the peace of mind that Alfie is 100% happy and looked after. We simply would not leave him with anyone else. Claire

30 October 2009

What can we say? Professional, pragmatic, extraordinarily loving and caring; Diggen truly was in heaven whilst in your care. You made our holiday so much more enjoyable as we were able to relax in the knowledge that Diggen was in safe hands. The video footage was an added bonus. Someone was certainly looking down on us when we found The Puppy Dog Hotel. Thank you. Jan, Andrew and Diggen x

7 October 2009

Thanks for taking such good care of Skye during our holiday in the summer. We were a bit anxious about leaving our 13 week old puppy but after meeting your family we were confident that we have chosen the right place for Skye's holiday! We were happy to receive the email updates and DVD which showed how much fun Skye had and I'm sure he would love to spend his next holiday with you! Angela & Alex

27 September 2009

Thank you Karina and Joe for looking after Miley last week. He has come back to us happy and contented. The service you provide is excellent and so much more than we expected, with the advice, training and even a DVD, not to mention the love and care he so obviously received. I would highly recommend the puppy dog hotel and I simply would not leave Miley with anyone else. Superb! Dave & Jeanette

30 June 2009

Having been very anxious about leaving my 1year old dog for the first time I was absoulutely thrilled with the care and attention she recieved by people who clearly love animals and are not just out for making money. I also learnt a huge amount from Jo who was able to read Ginny like a book! She was happy and relaxed when I came back from holiday. I would not hesitate to use their service again. Lorraine Barton

18 March 2009

Thanks to all at the puppy dog hotel for looking after Paddy. We can thoughly recommend the services that karina and family provide, as only after 5 days working with Paddy he came back a new dog, we also learnt so much, helpful hints and tips to continue his training, thank you once again to all at puppy dog hotel, and we are sure Paddy missed you after his holiday with you. Lisa and Mary

5 March 2009

Choosing somewhere to leave Macy and Ollie wasn't an easy task, Karina and Joe have an amazing way with dogs and Macy and Ollie have thoroughly enjoyed their time there. Ollie has received exceptional training to help behavioural issues. The DVD of their stay showed how wonderfully they were cared for. Chris and Nat

26 January 2009

Leaving our Labrador puppy, Jimmy Choo, with anyone, was for me just as serious as finding the right kind of babysitter for our children. Obviously not just anyone will do! Karina and Joe run a superb establishment, probably better care than in your own home! We can't recommend them highly enough and plan our holidays around when Jimmy can be fitted in at the Puppy Hotel. Simply Brilliant. Kerry Rhodes

16 December 2008

We are so glad to have found the Puppy Dog Hotel after an extensive search for the right place to care for Jaz (our 8 year old Weimaraner) while we are on holiday. Prior to our holiday Jaz stayed for a week of training in November and it was clear that in addition she enjoyed the loving care given by Karina, Joe and family. The training given has made a real difference for us all and Karina and Pauline Prady

30 August 2008

We thank Karina & Joe for few enriching times already for our 10-months old Milo. His behaviour improved remarkably after his stays. Video, daily notes (after), along with calls & e-mails we received (during his stay) made us so comfortable every time we chose your dog haven while away. Your advice are put to great use and we are proud to welcome back an energetic and happy puppy. See you next time Emily & Stephane

30 July 2008

Delighted and amazed with the progress in two days. We were given a comprehensive report of the day (&night!) and the training. Came away with very helpful advice and a training dvd featuring our puppies! Fantastic service, have been recommending the "Hearn Team" already. Claire

27 July 2008

Thanyou Karina and family for the wonderful care you gave to Loius my 5 month old puppy.During his stay the family helped Louis build his confidence and socialise with larger dogs. Everyday they complete a health check which fortunatly for Louis spotted an ear infection that was causing him some discomfort and quickly dealt with the minor infection. Their knowledge and care is wonderful, Caroline Kalha

20 July 2008

We went away for a few days with no one to look after our puppy husky called Marley. As you can imagine being a puppy and leaving him was going to be hard for us. Karina and her family had Marley for a few days. I am extremely happy with the care that he was given and definately will be asking them again in the future im surprised he even wanted to come home. They also sent a dvd . carol reed

16 June 2008

Karina and family, thank you so much for all the care and attention you gave Jessie while we were away. It was great to keep in touch by e-mail and receive the photos as well as the comprehensive DVD and write up on our return. Special thanks to Joe for taking care of Jessie during the thunderstorm which can spook her. A truly caring service all round. With regards, John and Linda Neale

28 May 2008

Thank you, Karina, Joe and family, for looking after Oscar and Toby so well. They returned to us sleek, happy and much better behaved than when we left them! Oscar is now much calmer, and has stopped the habit of scratching at visitors, which made him unpopular. The change is amazing! Toby's tail has not stopped wagging, and her obviously had a super holiday. I highly recommend Karina to all. Val Knight

7 March 2008

Dear Karina and family. Thank you so much for looking after our puppy Lola, while we were away over half term. We were worried leaving her at such a young age, but you did a fantastic job. All my concerns mentioned to you when we left her have now been dealt with, with your expertise and great advice. We have not had one 'accident' since collecting her over two weeks ago so I think you cracked this for us! As well as generally training her, especially with her recall out in the park I can now confidently let her off the lead and know she will come back to us. She now sits and lies beautifully using only hand signals....Everyone around me is truly impressed! Your whole family have a fantastic way and know how with dogs. Thank you especially to your daughter Amelia for keeping my daughter updated with text messages with her progress during our holiday, this was very much appreciated. I hope you will be able to look after again, when we next go away. Yours Sincerely, Sarah Sofizade
