Forestry Commission - Creech Wood

Dear Marie, Thank you so much for looking after Toby so well while we were away. It was obvious from the very start that he was both welcome and happy to stay with you. This was borne out by how content and ‘at home’ he appeared to be, when we came to pick him up. We will not hesitate to ask you again to look after Toby as we and he are more that satisfied with the care and dedication that you show to the pets you take in to your home. Many thanks once again

We provide the full range of pet care services to look after your pet while you are at work or away…

Dog Walking Service

Dog walking service in HampshireDog Walking

Homes & Hounds offers a comprehensive dog walking service tailored to your dog’s individual needs. Your dog’s breed, age, energy levels and temperament are all important factors that help us determine the right type of walk for them.

A walk with Homes & Hounds includes collection from your home in our dog friendly, liveried transport, with a guaranteed minimum one hour walk before being returned home. Your dog will normally be walked in small groups of up to three dogs, but if this does not suit their temperament, a one-to-one walking service is also available.

When you first contact Homes & Hounds we will arrange an initial meeting with you and your dog so that we can get to know you both and gain a full understanding of your walking and care requirements. There is no charge for this initial consultation, and you are under no obligation to commit to our services.

Charges for Dog Walking

From £12 per per one hour walk (for one dog), and from £20 per one hour walk (for two dogs).

Please contact the Homes & Hounds Team Member for your area to discuss your individual needs.

Puppy Care

Everyone loves a puppy, but when you have to work or would like a day out, it’s often difficult to provide the right level of care. Homes & Hounds can offer a schedule of home visits which provide the level of care to suit your puppy’s needs.

As well as lots of love and affection, your puppy will need feeding and help with toilet training. And as your puppy grows, exercise will become a key requirement. Homes & Hounds will gradually introduce your puppy to short walks which, in time, can lead into full social walking with our other dogs.

Our service is completely flexible, and if you find your plans change, you can rearrange or cancel a visit.

Charges for Puppy Care

From £6 per visit – please contact us for a no-obligation quote tailored to your specific needs.

Home Visits & Small Pet Care

mask_catHome Visits & Small Pet Care

Maybe you have an older dog for whom a walk is not appropriate, or perhaps you own a cat who would find a spell in a cattery a confusing or stressful affair.

It is difficult for owners who are regularly at work or frequently away to keep asking friends and neighbours to help with care and feeding.

A Homes & Hounds home visit will provide your pets with the daily (or twice daily) feeding and attention they need to enable them to stay in the comfort of their own home.

Pet to Vet Service

mask_dogPet to Vet or Groomer

We can provide a Pet to Vet Taxi service for when you are unable to take your pet to the vets yourself, whether you are ill, unable to drive or too busy at work or with other commitments.

Whether your pet has been taken ill, needs to attend a routine appointment, requires regular tests for an ongoing condition or requires admittance for routine or emergency surgery we will collect your pet and take it to your local vet and either attend the appointment on your behalf or with you in attendance.

We can also collect your pet from your veterinary surgery upon discharge and take your pet home on your behalf with their veterinary discharge instructions.

Once we are fully briefed about your pet’s situation, we will relay your concerns directly to your vet. We will make notes and if necessary phone you immediately if a decision needs to be made straight away.

We will make notes of your vet’s diagnosis and any medicine which has been administered. We will collect any prescribed medication or medical supplies required from reception and bring this home for you with your pet, including any prescription diet prescribed by your vet. We will make sure you are adequately briefed of your pet’s condition and treatment.

If you are concerned about your pet but are unable to take your pet to see your vet, this is a very useful, important and invaluable service for your pet’s health.

Charges for Pet to Vet or Groomer

From £6 per half hour appointment – please contact us for a no-obligation quote tailored to your specific needs.
