"Gracie adores her time at Doggy Digs with Nadia. She leaps from the car in excitement as soon as we arrive, and comes home happy and pleasantly tired from her holiday! We can relax knowing she is safe, cared for, and happy, in a professional yet homely setting."

Doggy Digs is set in the stunning Surrey Hills, an ideal place for long walks with dogs....
This is what led us to rescue our first dog and prompted the idea of establishing a dog boarding business. When we had to go away, we weren't keen on using kennels as our rescue had come from a puppy farm and therefor kept in a cage all her life. We wanted her to go in to a loving home. She was so well looked after and happy when we collected her. It started me thinking about setting up something similar. We had to travel a long way to our sitter as I couldn't find anything locally. So, seven years on and here we are.
We live in a converted barn within six acres of fenced land which is perfect for allowing the dogs to run free if you're not comfortable with me letting them off lead. Alternatively, we can walk out of our gate straight on to a bridleway which leads into Church Woods, Marden Park. No car journeys needed if your dog isn't a good traveller.
Just a twenty minute drive from Gatwick Airport, so you can drop pup off on the way if you are flying from there.
Your dogs will be looked after as if they are our own.
We have since decided to expand the business. After getting our little puppy, who it turned out, seemed to be Houdini reincarnated, we secured our 4 acre field to stop her escaping while we were trying to train her. We now rent this out by the hour for people to practice recall, or for reactive dogs who just need a bit of private space away from other dogs to enjoy running free. We've had so many bookings for dogs that have never been allowed off lead. It's such a pleasure to watch them the first time they have some freedom!
"A wonderful 2 weeks for Charlie at a fabulous location with a fantastic family. Thank you Nadia for all the regular updates. We hope Charlie can stay again soon."

"Our dog Millie is now a regular with Nadia. We go away for short breaks knowing our dog will be cared for like she is at home. Such a beautiful location and a very caring owner"
