Shelley Back - My old boy lab has just had a stay with Erika and the family. It’s clear that he’s been well loved and looked after during his stay and I’m more than happy to know that during his next stay in July that he will have the same lovely time
Emma Daly - This was the first time I have left our 18 month chocolate lab with his girlfriend while we went on holiday. He marched straight in, didnt say goodbye and was playing away with Erika's chocolate labs. We relaxed on holiday because we knew that they were safe and cared for like they were Erikas' own dogs. We would recommend using Happy Hounds Holidays and definitely use again.
Lynda Whitmore - I cannot speak highly enough of Erika (Happy Hounds Holidays) I left my 3 dogs 2 English Springer Spaniels & a 7 month old Labrador with her for two weeks. Nothing difficult about that you'd say BUT my puppy Lab has a condition called Megaesophagus which actually requires special requirements for eating & drinking as issues they have with eating causes regurgitation & this in turn can cause aspirated pneumonia & their early death. I took Murphy on when the previous owners refused to keep him as their vet said it should be put to sleep. For me to give him to someone else to look after was a massive decision to make but I needed a holiday which had been booked before I took Murphy on at 8 weeks old as I'm due a massive back operation . I came back to my three precious fur-babies & they were so happy to see me but they also wanted to stay as they had such a fantastic, fun time with Erika & that was also through the UK current heatwave too, causing even more work for Erika to ensure everyone's dogs were OK. They met so many new friends to play with and enjoyed times in the paddling pool etc. When I spoke with Erika about Murphy's condition she didn't turn me away, she asked me exactly what was required & said she would 100% look after him for me & she did just that. I really can't explain how grateful I am & unless you have a dog with this condition you really won't understand the stress & anguish each & everyday causes just to make sure you are doing the best by them & giving them the life they so deserve. 100% would recommend Erika (Happy Hounds Holidays) to anyone.
Kim Waldie - Bracken is a rescue Foxy who, having been abused, was very shy and lacked a lot of confidence. She started going to Doggie Day Care about 6 months ago and oh my what a difference. She now belongs to the Dirty Dog Gang and loves every minute of it, her confidence has grown and she even loves to play on her own with toys, something that never happened before. I don't know what we would do without Penny and Erika, a big thank you from Bracken x
Corrine Skeel - "We are very fortunate to have found such a wonderful place for our pup Bessy. With Happy Hounds only being 3 miles away from us it was the logical choice to use them for regular daycare. Bessy has loved going from day one and has been welcomed into Erica, Penny and Ian's home as if she is one of theirs. We have just come back from a holiday abroad and knowing that Bessy would also have a fab holiday, made it easier to leave her behind for nearly 3 weeks. She has made lots of friends and being only 7 months old, Happy Hounds offers a great opportunity to socialise with other dogs and learn positive behaviours from being with them. She loves playing and is full of energy so this is really the perfect place for her. I'm sure she misses you all and can't wait to come back and play!"
Fiona Connolly "Happy Hound Holidays is a fabulous home from home for your dogs. When we first needed to find a boarding solution for our black lab Gatsby, we visited some kennels and then found Erika - there was no choice to be made. Immediately we felt at ease in the surroundings, her own dogs are so friendly and happy we knew Gatsby would fit right in and be well looked after. The fact that the dogs stay in the house too rather than in a stark, disinfectant-smelling kennel was a real bonus for us. Gatsby has had many happy holidays with Erika and the gang - in fact we think so highly of Happy Hounds and Erika that we bought one of her dog's puppies - Hector! Now when Hector and Gatsby stay - it is like visiting family. Such a brilliant find - can't believe we have been so lucky. Thank you Erika"
Jennifer Grace "Excellent day care & dog boarding! My dog has been going to Happy Hounds for 7 years now, absolutely loves it! Chose Happy Hounds as I don't like the idea of kennels, there he can run around outside on the warm days and be tucked up cosy on the cold, wet ones! He is very well looked after and I wouldn't trust anyone else! 5stars!!!"
Charlotte Victoria "Erika looked after our 1 year old beagle-boy, Jeremy for 12 days. It was our first time leaving him for this long, so we were naturally a little sad and anxious. But, we needn't have been. Jez, being keen to befriend every dog he meets, spent 2 weeks playing and when we came to pick him up he was relaxed, happy and clearly had a soft spot for Erika, which just shows the care she gives every dog thay stays with her." happy hound holidays 07779 045672
