Home Boarding by Ollie’s Petcare
If you’re going away on holidays and feel that pet sitting or kennels are not suitable for your dog then home boarding could be the choice for you. Home boarding is when your pet comes and stays with us in our home with our dogs (Ollie & Penny) and is part of our family for their stay!
Let’s take a look at our home boarding service in greater detail. Similer to our pet sitting services, we offer two types – day to day and consecutive. Day to day caters for short breaks or unexpected days here and there; where as consecutive offers greater value on longer periods such as holidays. If you are any doubt which you need just pop us an enquiry and we’d be happy to help.

A home from home for your pet when you go on holidays! Unlike noisey kennels home boarding can offer a reassurance to your dog that kennels can't, especially for a dog that is a little bit more nervous or anxious. Your dog will get personal care in our home, play in our back garden and sleep on our couch in the evenings in front of the fire with our dachshunds Ollie & Penny.
LocationsWe are based in Ratoath, Co. Meath. It's the perfect location for providing all our four legged clients home boardng services across East Meath & North Dublin . Here are some of the locations we offer home boarding to:
+ Day to Day & Consecutive Home BoardingHome boarding for those that are new to the concept is when your dog can go and stay in another home, usually with another dog owner and their own dogs. Home boarding is a fantastic alternative to kennels for many dogs that find kennels a little unsettling or stressful. Home boarding means your dog can stay in a family environment surrounded by humans as well as a few other dogs that they know well.
With us your dog will sleep indoors, join us for our daily routine & walks and have their own toys, bowls, food, blankets and bed from your home with them. That's why we say it's a 'home from home' - because it really is! We try to make it as stressless as possible for you and your dog!
Like our pet sitting services, day to day is designed for short breaks or weekend stays, whereas our consecutive boardng for longer stays takes pricing into consideration, with reduced rates for longer bookings.
+ Individual Care & AttentionEvery dog is different, home boarding allows you to ensure your dog needs are getting met while your away. Whilst in our care your dog will enjoy walks with us at least twice a day, have access to our enclosed, hazard free garden, sleep indoors, play with our sausages and be part of our family for their stay!
– Personal one on one care for your dog
– Exercise & Attention on an individual basis
– Professional care 24 hours a day - your dog will never be left alone!
– Clean, friendily, family environment
– Daily feeding routines can be maintained
– Grooming, walks, medications can all be accommodated
It’s good for you too! It’s not just the dogs that can benefit from home boarding, because you can relax more and enjoy your break knowing your dog is happy and is being well looked after by someone you know and trust. The stress of leaving a dog in kennels can be very overwhelming, but seeing your dog happy in our family home with Ollie & Penny and all their home from home comforts is very reassuring.
Before you take up any services with us we will arrange to meet you & your pet in your home at your convenience. This is a chance for everyone to get to know each other and more importantly so your pet can get to know us. It also gives you a chance to decide if we are the right fit for both of you and your routine. The visit will take approximately 30 - 45 minutes, is completely free and with no obligation on you to proceed with a booking.
If you are then happy to proceed, we will then go through some brief paperwork together. We will fill in your pets personal information form, discuss schedules & services, sign the service contract you require and discuss any other arrangements such as home access. For more info on this click here!
We also provide our four pawed clients with lots of unique products & tasty treats in our online store - Ollie's Pet Boutique; stocking new brands to Ireland like Fellipet, Pooch & Mutt, Fat Cat plus supporting Irish brands Soopa & EcoMutt; plus many more!
