    5 star review  Our little Ziggy came back from DDH looking super chilled! Getting photos of him looking so happy when were away was great. He looked like he was having so much fun that we almost felt bad bringing him home! Well always use DDH going forward.

    positive review  Sonserai and her team are true miracle workers. I sent my fur babies to the durban dog hotel for 3 weeks of behavioral therapy as two babies are from the same litter and the male dog was super dominant and possessive of me and his territory. Sonserai worked with them and now they can sit together in the car, sit on the same sofa and share my attention without any problem. They both had confidence and anxiety issues and Sonserai helped them with this. It’s truly amazing to see their transformation and I am so grateful for the help as now they are both happier dogs. I wholeheartedly recommend this amazing team and the hotel for your beloved babies as they will be loved and spoiled and are most definitely in excellent hands. The doggies are taken excellent care of and are excercised and stimulated throughout the day and the best part is that the hotel staff send you daily whatsapp posts so you don’t miss your babies too much. Sonserai brought the doggies home after their therapy to reintegrate them and her rapport with animals is phenomenal. They fell in love with her in three weeks whereas before this they disliked all people except family. I will be eternally grateful as my babies are happy and less aggressive towards each other.

    5 star review  I brought my 2 sausage dogs to stay, Michael was was only 2 months old at the time and Matilda is anxious, and discovered what a wonderful place this is!! I have always worried about going away and who we can ask to look after our pups but after I bringing them here, I no longer worry. To be honest I'm not sure they wanted to come home with me. They had such a ball playing with all the other dogs and being treated like royalty � Thank you for all the updates and for looking after them so well! Can't wait for them to come and stay again!
