Home Boarding

For peace of mind, while you are away

My name is Rachel and I live in Botcheston with my husband, two sons and two dogs.

For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about all animals, but my true love is dogs.

For many years, I have enjoyed fostering unwanted strays and helping them to find new homes, as well as continuing to look after the pets of family and friends.

In 2014, after 15 years as a primary school teacher, I decided to realise my dream and pursue a job that encompasses my love of dogs.

We live in a modest, four bedroom semi-detached house, with a good sized, secure garden for safe play and rest.


I offer plenty of exercise as I love to walk and run with dogs.

I am currently studying towards a Canine Certificate in Higher Education, awarded by Middlesex University. This teaches me about canine behaviour and behavioural problems, and how to practice as a dog behaviourist. This is something I also thoroughly enjoy.

Desford Dog Care holds a Home Boarding Licence issued by Hinckley and Bosworth Council and is renewed annually by the local dog warden.

I am also fully CRB checked and insured, for your peace of mind.


I look forward to meeting you and welcoming your dog into our family home.

Your dog will live in our family home during his or her stay here, therefore receiving lots of individual attention.
