    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

    5 star review  We have entrusted our fur baby Lexi to The Durban Dog Hotel. This is the most amazing place for dogs! Both Candice and Sonseirai are amazing with the dogs .... No kennels or cages, lots of love and attention were key for us, and this Lexi got in heaps. Lexi has been to The Hotel a couple of times and we will continue to send her there ..... she has the time of her life there, constant photos and video updates are the proof of that 🙂

    5 star review  I booked my 5 month old spaniel pup in for a week and after arriving and dropping him off I was so relieved to see how the Durban Dog Hotel care for and love the dogs like their own. We received daily whatsapp mesages, photos and videos showing him having lots of one on one cuddle time, play time and long walks with the pack. It was wonderful to see him so happy. He seemed to love being there and we were thrilled that he was being loved and cared for as we do. There are no cages or small concrete runs like kennels, but wide open spaces to.explore and have adventures. The dogs sleep inside on the owners bed or on their own beds. They are with people 24hrs a day so they get lots of attention and love. It seemed to rain a lot while our pup was there but they managed to entertain the dogs indoors and keep him dry and clean. They have a very large fenced garden to play in and be taken for long walks, which exhausted hiim. I have now booked my 2 pups in for our next holiday. I would highly recommend the Durban Dog Hotel to anyone.
