About Us

Going away on vacation/business and not sure what to do with your fur baby? Look no further.

The Durban Dog Hotel is not your usual dog boarding service. We are a home away from home that caters for fur babies on our couches and in our beds. Your doggo will have a surrogate mom or dad to care for them throughout their stay and will even share a nice comfy double bed at night with this dog crazy person. DOGS ARE SEPARATED INTO PACKS ACCORDING TO SIZE AND ENERGY LEVEL. Dont worry your Toy pom will never bump into a robust great dane.

Meet our team
Sonseirai Van Heerden
Owner and Founder

Aside from being owner and founder of DDH, I am the resident dog behaviour expert, holding two degrees, and have studied human and dog behaviour for over 15 years, specialising in pack dynamics and integration.
I have successfully integrated over 50 000 dogs into pack environments, specialising in difficult cases with power breeds.
I am passionate about educated dog care as well as the development of our handpicked team to equip them with the necessary skills needed to successfully handle dogs of all breeds and temperaments.

Candice Swanson

I consider myself a pioneer and entrepreneur who started the Durban Dog hotel with Sonserai. My vision and approach to leadership has often taken the hotel to new levels.

Through my marketing I have seen the business blossom into what it is today. I have pioneered projects all over the world and have finally settled in my beloved SA.

I am a proud mom and wife to Sonseirai and am greatly excited for the future of the DDH and of our family together

Reece Buys
Admin Manager

I'm an avid dog lover, and have been part of the DDH team since 2016, who is driven to becoming a dog behaviorist
