Frequently Asked Questions

Who is you Carer?

Your dog’s carer is Sophia, a passionate, devoted dog lover who enjoys the companionship of dogs.   Enjoys to take her charges – “your dog” on walks, play & exercise while the dogs are staying at Hip Hound Holidays. Your dog will be staying in a home where there are very well socialised dog that enjoy the company of other dogs. Your dog will also be very much part of the family with the extra benefit of playmates. This is ideal for dogs that enjoy the company of other dogs and the added exercise and stimulation that brings.


Benefits: Great company of both the canine and human kind! Your dog will be part of the family with welcoming, sociable holiday friends.

What will I have to take with me when I drop my dog/s off?

You will need to bring your dogs food & food bowl and medication (if any) etc and anything that you think will make your dog more at home, ensuring your dog has some reminders of home, perhaps a blanket or towel.  Having their normal food will ensure there are no upset tummies.


Please send your dog with:

  • their own food as diet changes are not desirable; & their food bowl
  • collar, lead and any other item used for walks and adventures;
  • any item that may make them feel more comfortable (toys, bedding etc).

Does my dog/s have to be vaccinated?

Yes your dog must have up to date vaccinations, wormed and been treated for fleas and ticks. Proof of vaccinations will be required and you will be asked to bring a copy when you take your dog on its first stay.

What about exercising my dog/s?

Your dog will be given plenty of exercise in either forms of playtime with others, ball throws and/or being walked on their lead and/or trips to the beach or local park.

What if my dog is ill while I’m away?

We would endeavor to contact you or your next of kin as written on the booking form you filled, together with your vets details. In the unlikely event your dog becomes ill,  the carer would take your dog to a local vet, the carers vet or use the services of a after hours vet.
