Dog Boarding

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has been caring for dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds since 1883. This history has served us well in understanding a dog’s needs and it is this experience, matched with the passion, love and dedication of our staff, that gives our boarding clients peace of mind when they are away on holidays. Whether it’s a special diet, or a comforting blanket, our team are ready to provide for your pet’s individual requirements. All profits made through our boarding services support the rescue dogs and cats in our care who are yet to find their loving forever homes.

Our Dog Boarding Facilities

Our modern, purpose-built boarding kennels have under-floor heating to keep them at the right temperature all-year-round.

Each kennel has access to an outside exercise run and, along with regular walks in our large grassy paddock, you can have peace of mind that your pet is staying fit and healthy in the fresh sea air.

Our kennels are fully tiled throughout, and are subject to multiple daily cleans, ensuring that your dog is in safe hands and well cared for at all times.

Catering to Individual Needs

  • Medications. We are happy to administer most medications during opening hours, but please speak to a member of our Reception team for further advice.
  • Food. We know that some dogs can be fussy eaters. We provide a full board service, including food,  but if your dog has specific preferences, or a sensitive tummy, they may prefer food from home. Let us know and we will arrange for your pet to be fed accordingly.
  • Home Comforts. Bowls, bedding and food are all provided as part of our service. However, we are very happy for clients to bring their own bedding and toys from home.
  • Terms and Conditions. Please read our Terms and Conditions before making your enquiry, to ensure that your dog is eligible for a stay with us.

Dog Boarding Prices

Our boarding rates are highly competitive, making us one of the most affordable kennel services in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Per date rates are:

  • £13 for one dog
  • £22.20 (15% discount) for two dogs (sharing a single kennel)

In addition to our multi-dog discount, we offer a 10% discount to first-time customers.

I have peace of mind knowing that Gracie is happy, safe and well cared for, and I’d not hesitate to recommend Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home for pet boarding. Gracie definitely gives her high-paw of approval!
