Owner & Founder Kathy took a leap of faith in starting Home for Hounds.
Through experience she knew a local, bespoke and dedicated dog day-care facility that offered regular stimulating exercise, rest and safe play was impossible to find in Exeter. It wasn’t Kathy’s plan to work in the pet industry, but passionate about her rescue dogs and a desire to offer like-minded owners a healthy alternative lifestyle for their beloved pal led her to create the Home for Hounds.
How it Began
“It all started when I researched and changed my wonderful Terrier’s diet and exercise regime to improve her quality of life following an illness.”
“She was 15 years old. The difference it made was unbelievable; she was alert, came jogging with me every day and had that twinkle back in her eye. In return, I got another 6 years of devotion from my fantastic little dog.”
A shift worker for 15 years, Kathy had struggled to find the level and quality of care she wanted for her beloved dogs whilst she worked.
Realising there are many people who like her, cherish their pet, the Home for Hounds was opened. Owners can be assured that in their absence for whatever reason, their companion is being well looked after, loved and cared for by Kathy and her team of devoted dog enthusiasts.
