Dog Boarding

Boarding for dogs and overnight accommodation

Maggie has been coming to Dunston for quite a while now and we wouldn’t dream of taking her anywhere else

Dunston Lodge welcomes all breeds, sizes, and ages of dogs, including those with specific dietary or medical needs. We have single, double and family rooms available.

All dogs boarding at Dunston Lodge are able to:

  • Relax and play, in large, spacious rooms which all have an indoor sleeping area, and an outdoor, covered play areas;
  • Enjoy walks, at least twice a day, in our private woodlands; and have extra walks & extended walks on request;
  • Sleep in heated rooms, with a supply of warm, cosy blankets, beds and bedding; carpets may also be made available;
  • Eat, at least twice a day, the same food as they would have at home, choosing from the large selection of branded dog foods on our menu;
  • Receive daily health checks, and enjoy time and affection from our dedicated team;
  • Have any necessary medication administered to them, as instructed by their owner;
  • Are kept safe & secure in the knowledge that a vet is on call 24 hours a day, and that our security systems are in operation, including CCTV.
  • Are bathed & blow-dried before going home, and clipped/groomed (if requested) so that they go home feeling a fully pampered pooch.

For further information on our boarding services please feel free to visit us, we welcome viewings at any time, although late morning or late afternoons  (after morning/afternoon walks) are preferable so that we have plenty of time to show you around and answer any queries.
