We are Pack Buddies

Giving dogs the paradise they deserve

Created out of passion and dedication, we are Southampton’s largest purpose built outdoor doggy daycare, with acres of private countryside. Our dogs enjoy going back to their origins, where they explore the best of what nature has to offer. Through treasure hunts, a sensory garden, agility course and much more, our dogs get to enjoy being dogs.

What people are saying

5/5 Star Reviews

“I am a dog focused vet and offer unique services to select doggy daycares. I was always impressed by the special relationship Sandra had with the dogs in her care. She listens and responds to individual dogs behaviours, was loved by both dogs and parents and was a pleasure to work with.”

Ciara - Professional Vet - Vet in the city

“Just to say how grateful we are for all the help and advice we received from Sandra, whilst looking after Hugo at day school.  We found Sandra to be very patient with our terrier and it was plain to see the bond that they developed.

Donovan - Dog Owner

“Sandra is a winning combination when looking after dogs. Not only does she genuinely love them and herself get a huge amount of joy from them, but she has such integrity and respect, that you know your dog is in the very best hands.

Vanessa - Dog Owner

“My Maple, a Golden Retriever, was looked after by Sandra for a number of years and I couldn’t have been happier with her service.  Sandra is very friendly, dependable and most importantly, passionate about dog care.”

Sue - Dog Owner

“Sandra played an extremely important role in the care of our young Labrador. Her reliability and professionalism were both outstanding, as was her concern for the well-being of our puppy. We always felt Rusty was in the best possible hands and were impressed by the training that Sandra seamlessly incorporated into his regime.”

Jane - Dog Owner

“I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sandra’s doggie daycare services. Our two dogs absolutely love her and her knowledge and passion for everything doggie is hard to beat!”
