Greyhound dog's back garden

Always Greyhounds
Home Boarding

I'm Karen Woods (also known as Kay to my good friends) and I run Always Greyhounds. I have lived with and loved dogs all my life and greyhounds since 1994. I lost my last two greyhounds in August 2016 and currently do not have any of my own, which leaves me free to devote my time to my boarding greyhounds.

I board greyhounds (and occasionally their friends by special arrangement) in my detached bungalow in the leafy garden city of Letchworth in Hertfordshire, about 30 miles from London. There are no stairs for your greyhound to negotiate in my bungalow and all floors are carpeted for your greyhound's comfort and safety. All rooms have extra-tall pet gates for the security of your greyhound. Greyhounds are welcomed on sofas and human beds and may sleep in one of the bedrooms if they wish. There are no children or other animals in my home and it is a non-smoking household. Where possible I use natural and environmentally-friendly household cleaners.


There is a large, shady, securely fenced garden for your greyhound's exercise and enjoyment, including a small wooded area for mooching around. My home is peaceful and quiet and I endeavour to provide a relaxed and loving environment for your greyhound. You may leave your greyhound with me secure in the knowledge that they are being cared for by someone who is knowledgeable and experienced with the breed and their special needs.


Owners are asked to provide sufficient food and treats for their greyhound's stay. Owners may also bring beds and toys, although this is not necessary as there are plenty of both available here.


Current prices and services offered are detailed under the Services tab. I am insured and licensed with a five star rating from the local council. I also have an enhanced DBS certificate.


Please feel free to telephone, email or message me for further information or to arrange a visit to view my home or discuss any questions you may have about your greyhound's care whilst in my care.

I look forward to welcoming you and your greyhound to my home.
