"I do not know what we would have done without Mary, she is friendly, welcoming and most of all knows how to look after our two Chihuahua's. Leaving them is very hard for me, however Mary put me at ease. I know I have found an excellent home boarder for my little ones and would have no hesitations in recommending Mary's services to anyone. Thank you Mary"





Sasha had the most amazing stay with Gill, Tom and Mac!! Her and Mac were a match made in heaven and they bonded so fact she is moping a bit since we brought her home, missing her new doggy best pal, Gill and Tom were lovely and once again I was fully reassure Sasha was in excellent hands......thanks for that.

"In the past have used boarding kennels but as my Golden Labrador 'Amber' is 13 now, did not want to stress her in a noisy kennel environment, so after an initial internet search came across 'Hounds on Holiday' via From my initial contact with Mary the organiser & subsequently visiting our Host Family Andrew & Amanda's dog friendly home with their lovely cocker spaniel 'Henry' for an initial meet & greet visit. We had no reservations about leaving Amber for 3 days while we attended our son's graduation. When we returned to pick up Amber, although obviously pleased to see us, you could tell that she had enjoyed her stay by the way she still interacted with Andrew, Amanda & of course Henry. I would not hesitate to use 'Hounds on Holiday' again & hopefully Andrew & Amanda as my dog's carers.




Thank you for the video of Snoopy, I am so pleased he enjoyed himself it's so good to know that you can go away and not need to worry because you take such good care and give him so much love and attention

With Kind Regards Ann, Den, Lauren & Snoopy xxxx



From our initial contact with Mary and then meeting Lynne and Richard in their lovely home we knew we had found the right people to look after Trampus. They are wonderful people who love dogs and give you the confidence that your pet will be part of their family and well looked after in a home environment. Tramp also agrees, a very happy boy who will be morethan happy to go back and stay, thank you very much.




My dog spent two weeks with Lynn and Richard. They also had an old Lab staying at the same time and the two dogs got on very well together despite the age difference. My dog was well-looked after and seemed quite happy when he came home. He still looks wistfully at their house when we pass on our walks. That they live so near to me if a bonus, he's in familiar surroundings and in a dog friendly home. Couldn't get much better than this.


Widdrington Station



Having met Andrew, Amanda and their dog Henry before leaving our Yorkshire terrier with them for 2 weeks, I felt confident that Smudge would be well looked after in a home from home environment. Smudge did indeed have a loving, fun and comfortable stay and although pleased to see us on our return, definitely missed them for a day or two! I would not hesitate to recommend Hounds on Holiday and will definitely be using them again when we next go on holiday, as it means we can enjoy a worry free break knowing that Smudge is being cared for just as she would be at home."



Merlin & Meimei

"OurChow-Tsu dogs, Merlin and Meimei, love going to Hounds on Holiday and stay with Gill & Tom. We don't worry when we are going away because we know our precious pets are having a great holiday themselves, often going to the beach and playing in the woods. They are cared for by real dog lovers and they always come home happy and in great condition. Highly recommended!"

Thanks for looking after Harry so well, he came home a very happy little dog.

It was good of you to take Harry, with him being diabetic and

needing injections morning and evening.

We could tell he was well looked after. Many thanks Mary

Owen, Rita and Harry




Just a line to thank you for looking after Alfie for us. It was comforting to know he was being looked after in the home rather than being in kennels. He returned to us a happy dog. We would not hesitate in leaving him with you in the future and we would definately recommend you.

Thanks again

Richard & Diane Young



Sam & Tyler

David and I were so happy to have found Mary while scouring google for a home/holiday dog carer while I went to visit my husband and more conveniently living in Widdrington! Even though my holiday was cut short due to personal circumstances, Tyler and Sam had a wonderful time, judging by the video footage taken, on the DVD, that was given to us.

We will be using Mary again (availability aside) every time we go on holiday now as we hate using kennels anyway and have now found the perfect solution, just round the corner from our house!

Thanks Again!

Sara & David..and lets not forget the boys who were more than thankful.. Sam and Tyler



I loved the video - it was great to see her looking so happy and cute. Thanks for providing a great home from home for Poppy - I think she's missing you and all the friends she made. I would happily leave Poppy again, and go away with total peace of mind. 






Thank you again for looking after my 9 month old puppy Murphy when I went on Holiday. I was worried how Murphy would settle but I should'nt have as Mary provided the perfect home for him and he had so much fun he slept for 2 days when he got home! I missed Murphy when I was away but judging by the DVD I received of Murphy's stay with Mary he didn't miss me at all. I would recommend Hounds on Hoilday to everyone as Mary has so much time for your pets, Mary loves and cares for them like they were her own. 

I will defiantly be using Hounds on Hoilday again see you in the future.

Love Hayley and Murphy xx



I Would just like to let you know how grateful I am that you were able to look after Alfie through the day while I was on Holiday. The DVD you posted through my letterbox of Alfie on walks with you was brilliant. I am so pleased I have somewhere Alfie can go with someone as kind as you.

Once again Thank you Mary




Truffle & Mabel

Hounds on Holiday was absolutely brilliant. Our dogs had the best time! We watched a lovely little video provided by Mary of our dogs activities. Lots of tail wagging! Xxx

Our thanks and appreciation for looking after Hamish - our little Westie - while we were on holiday. The DVD you so kindly gave us was a wonderful insight into how much Hamish had enjoyed his stay. In all honesty, we thought he wouldnt want to come home with us at all!! Since it was the first time Hamish had stayed with you, there was always that thought in the back of your minds that things might go horribly wrong! Of course, we need'nt have worried. We would definitely use your services again, and would recommend you to each and everybody. Thank you so much
