    5 star review  Doggy Day Care is just the most fabulous facility for new and old doggy owners. We took our pup Mowgli to doggy day care for a period of about 3 months (3 days a week) for socialisation from the age of 9 weeks old. We also signed him up for one-on-one behaviour work for the first two months and we just can't thank Sonserai and Candice enough. Our little Mo went from being a little terror to the most sweet and gentle pup. We could not believe the difference in his personality. We were worried that all of the behaviour work would be reversed when we stopped taking him to day care so we signed our domestic worker up for 2 lessons with Sonserai in order to teach her all the tricks of the trade with emphasis on correction (should he chew carpets, dig holes, jump up on visitors, etc). Needless to say we have not looked back. We would highly recommend Doggy Day Care and the Durban Dog Hotel to anyone and everyone! Xx

    5 star review  Finally made the decision to leave our precious 1 1/2 year old JR at the Dog Hotel for 3 nights, came to drop off and stayed to enable familiarization for him for about 10 - 15min. When we drove off we felt relieved, at ease and so happy knowing that he would be in good hands with good surrounding. I immediately phoned a friend who also had lodged their dog at the Hotel a couple of days earlier to 'air my relief and state of 'happiness for our dog'. My friend was chuffed that I called as this is exactly how they felt as well lodging their dog at the Hotel too 🙂 🙂 :). Absolutely great to enable to place such confidence in people who are leaving their most loved dogs at the Hotel, amazing to see how they all get on!! CONGRATULATIONS TO CANDICE & SONSEREI!

    5 star review  Our dogs love the dog hotel. When we go away so do they and have a ball. We get updates every day with photos so you can see how much they enjoy it. Sonseirai has even made a breakthrough with our unsocial dog to the extent he is enjoying other dogs company! A true dog behavourist. We will continue to go on holiday with peace of mind knowing our babies are in safe hands.

    5 star review  I sent my 2 dogs there for 4 days and Sonseray the dog behavourist worked with their behaviour problems as one was a newbie from Spc. Oh my goodness what a difference and what caring people. Thank you so much to you all. Highly recommended
