    5 star review  I can't thank Sonseirai and Candice enough for the love and care they shower on my fur baby when he's at the hotel!! He has an absolute blast and is completely exhausted when he gets home �. He has the time of his life and is spoilt rotten! You are all so amazing � and we're at complete ease when he's with you guys. Thank you so much for providing a home away from home �. You guys totally rock �

    5 star review  My baby yorkies stayed there for a weekend. They had doggy braais etc. They were so loved and we're so well looked after. Spoilt rotten. My babies love it there. Thanks to S and team.

    5 star review  It is a perfect home away from home experience our two Pekingese have loved from their first stay! The socializing and stimulation which the DDH provides has worked wonders with correcting their behavior and easing our minds when we go away. Sons, Candice and their team genuinely love what they do and all the dogs they have to stay! We highly recommend their hotel to anyone who is looking for this one of a kind service and accommodation xx

    5 star review  We felt confident leaving our 2 Labs, Zak and Cody at the Durban Dog Hotel. From the first phone call to meeting the team, and leaving our babies with them, we received excellent service. Zak and Cody were fully occupied during their stay and we were relieved and thrilled to get feedback and photos almost every day. Will definitely be back!

    5 star review  I had to go out of town for work and did not want to leave my 5 month old Great Dane puppy (Lysander) in a kennel for a week. I'm so glad I found DDH! Sonseirai and Candice were amazing and ensured my pup had a fabulous vacation while I was away 🙂 They sent regular photos and text message updates of all the fun Lysander was having, were extremely accommodating of his special dietary needs, took him to the park, gave him plenty of cuddles, and socialized him with other the doggy guests. They even checked up on Lysander and how he was doing after I brought him home. I will definitely be bringing him back--Thank you!
