We are utterly delighted to have passed our Leeds City Council Home Boarding Inspection reaching the Higher Standards of Home Boarding Provision.
Our Council Inspector visited us on the 6th August, 2019 for our renewal inspection and spent a good two and half hours thoroughly inspecting our premises and paperwork.
She was impressed with our policies and procedures which range from Managing Canine Interactions to our procedure in caring for our dogs in Extreme Weather and every procedure in between! Our customers are able to view our full range of policies and procedures.
Our Inspector was pleased with our hygiene procedures which include disease prevention and health and welfare monitoring of all our dogs. We use DEFRA high level disinfectants for sanitising everything from our dogs feeding bowls to their toys and bedding. We are also supported by our local Vets at Towerwood who agree to provide veterinary care to all our dogs for your peace of mind.
One of our regular boarders, Pebble, was staying with us at the time of the inspection and she made sure she was available to show our Inspector how we roll. Pebs also showed our inspector our transport which is a high spec Police Dog Handler vehicle.
Another area of provision our Inspector also admired was our programme of Canine Enrichment which not only includes stimulating walks in areas with woodland, water and natural obstacles (and lots of opportunity to sniff and explore); she also liked our supervised and voluntary play time which promotes our dogs physical and psychological health.
It was a pleasure to show off what we do here at Hanson's Hounds. We hope you come and visit us soon.
If Hanson's Hounds can't fit you in please always choose a licenced Home Boarder provider. A list of all the licenced providers in your area should be available on your local authority Animal Welfare web page.
