About us


Because dogs need holidays too…

Cotswold Dogs is more than just home boarding. We aim to create a unique environment and experience that will give your dogs a great holiday, while you enjoy yours with complete peace of mind.

Set in the heart of the Cotswolds our farm house barn, just off the kitchen to our home, has been transformed into a state-of-the-art boutique dog house. High ceilings, exposed brickwork, beautiful crystal chandeliers and canine art adorn the walls all contributing to the woof factor for a perfect doggie staycation.

By day your dogs can socialise, explore, play, splash in streams and happily frolic in the charming countryside; and at night, content and spent, sleep cosy and tight. It’s what canine dreams are made of.

From the moment we pick them up from your doorstep, to the moment we drop them back home, your dog will be fitter, refreshed and happier for the experience.

Owners of three dogs, we (Emma & Alex) have also been looking after other people’s dogs for over a decade and have always shared a love of dogs. We started working for other dog walking companies in London, before deciding to set up on our own and founding ‘A Bit of Ruff’ in 2010, a top end dog walking daycare and boarding company looking after dogs in West London. ‘A Bit of Ruff’ was a great success but when the perfect slice of paradise in the Cotswolds became available we knew that our dream of moving to the countryside and having a high-end dogs retreat could finally become a reality.
