Providing a home from home for small/medium size dogs.


Please note: We do not take booking, we take customers who are then eligible to make bookings.

We are currently fully subscribed and our diary will be full for 2017.


We are four westies, Toby, Holly, Benny & Jocky who are lucky to live on the Essex/Suffolk Border.
With help from our mum we run The Canine Country Retreat offering the following services in our area.





Our guest’s get to enjoy a home from home holiday. They have the free run of the house and totally enclosed garden during the day, although restricted to downstairs during the night
so we all get some sleep.
