Cala and Blackie are regulars of Holiday Hounds, they are both from the same family and just love going back to Betty’s on a regular basis while their owners are away on holiday. As you can see they do not have a care in the world and are very relaxed while they are being looked after which is lovely for us to see and takes any worry away from their owners while they are away.

Back Again

Another Welcome!

A big warm welcome to Betty to the Holiday Hounds family.

Betty is also one of Holiday Hounds newer carers. She just loves to give the dogs shes looking after the attention they need. Below is a picture of Ali with ‘Mr Shark’ and also Zeek and Sandy getting some relaxation time on Betty’s bed.

As you can see the dogs that are holidaying at Betty’s really do feel like they are in a home away from home which is always lovely to see for us and the owners :-).

Thank you Betty, it is a pleasure to have you part of the team.


I would love to extend a warm welcome and introduce one of Holiday Hounds newest carers, Hazel.

Hazel has been with us five months now and has already gave a number of dogs a loving home to live in while their owners have been away on holiday. Pictured below is a couple from her most recent, Lucas.

Hazel, as you can see was more than happy to tuck little Lucas in for a nap and made sure he was well looked after at her house while his owners were on holiday in Italy for a week.

It is a pleasure to have you as part of the Holiday hounds team.

The Cinnamon Trust


Holiday Hounds are honoured to have been the company in the Portsmouth area who were approached to help the Cinnamon Trust - Recently we were asked by the Cinnamon Trust if we could help the owner of a 16 year old dog while she spent time with her husband during his last few weeks of life. Without hesitating Holiday Hounds said yes and made sure we found the perfect carer to look after the dog.

It was Jane Stemp who looked after the dog in this time and i would like to personally thank her for the wonderful care she provided in such a distressing time for the dog and owners. Jane immediately, when asked went to pick up the dog and has been looking after her for the last 3 weeks. This help has allowed the owner to spend quality time with her dying husband without the added worry of her elderly dog.

I would like to thank the Cinnamon Trust for the wonderful service they provide and another thank you for choosing Holiday Hounds to help on this occasion and to now be a part of the hard work they do.

Suprise Wedding Guest

Pippin Wedding.jpg


Our career Esme was looking after Pippin while the owners were getting married. The husband asked if Esme would bring Pippin along as a surprise to the wife so they could all be together on the big day.
Obviously Esme was delighted to do this and here is the evidence. What a lovely gesture.
Who here agrees 👍 👰🤵🐶❤️

Storm and Thor

Here are storm and Thor.

2 very big and strong Huskies, Thor is the one who likes to always be first but he is also the fussy one, most likely to miss home while away but...

Our lovely carer Clare has experience with all sizes and breeds of dogs and has looked after these two beauties before and already has a repeat booking in the diary.
