First For Pets

Welcome to First For Pets - Your Trusted Home Boarding Experience for Dogs!

A Real Home Away from Home


At First For Pets, we understand that leaving your beloved furry friend behind can be a tough decision. That’s why we offer a unique and personalised home boarding service, ensuring that your dog receives the utmost care and attention in a safe, warm and welcoming environment. Our specially selected host families open their hearts and homes to your dog, providing a home away from home experience that will leave them feeling loved, comfortable, and secure.


Caring Host Families


We take great care in selecting our host families, ensuring they meet our high standards of care and compassion for dogs. Before your dog’s stay, you will have the opportunity to meet and get to know the host family, giving you peace of mind and confidence that your furry friend will be in the best possible hands. Our host families only have one dog staying at any one time, or up to three from the same household. This way they can treat your dog like a member of their own family, offering the same comforts and routines your dog enjoys in their own home.


5-Star Rated Animal Boarding


First For Pets is proud to hold 5-star rated Animal Boarding licenses across all our host families. We take the responsibility of caring for your dog seriously and adhere to the highest standards of safety, hygiene, and well-being. We invite you to ask to see our licenses, as we are more than happy to showcase our commitment to excellence.


Requirements for Your Dog’s Stay


To ensure the well-being and compatibility of all dogs in our care, we kindly ask that your dog meets the following requirements:


Up-to-date Vaccinations: Please ensure that your dog’s vaccinations are current, as this helps maintain a healthy and safe environment for all our canine guests.


Flea and Worming Treatment: Prior to their stay, your dog should be up to date with flea and worming treatments to prevent any discomfort or infestations.


Well-Behaved and Toilet Trained: We welcome dogs who are well-behaved and fully toilet trained. This ensures a harmonious and enjoyable experience for all dogs and host families.


Friendly and Well-Socialised: Dogs who are friendly and well-socialised with other dogs and humans thrive in our home boarding environment. It allows for positive interactions and a sense of camaraderie during their stay.


If your dog meets these criteria, we would be delighted to meet them and welcome them into our First For Pets family.

I cannot recommend First for Pets highly enough! They are beyond excellent. Always professional, accommodating, generous and caring. My dog LOVES Donna, Jeff and all the pet carers and on arrival she RUNS to see them everytime! It has become a home from home for my dog and I know she is safe and loved when she spends time there. She has so much fun playtime with them and is always happy, contented and tuckered out when she comes home.
Truly fantastic pet care.
