"Just wanted to thank you again for taking care of our 'children' the way you do.  It is great knowing they are in such good hands" - Chris & Renee

"Millie just loves her Hiphound holidays. She just loves to play with all her doggie friends. It is so convenient for us if we need to go away for a day or two or for a longer stay. I thoroughly recommend HHH."

"We were hesitant to leave our lab/retriever Baxter anywhere after a bad experience at a dog kennel but when Sophia was recommended to us we were delighted to find that at her place the dogs were treated just like part of family, lots of love and play every time he goes there. He has such a good time there I think he is always disappointed when we turn up to pick him up. We could not recommend Hip Hound Holidays highly enough (although we would like to keep it a secret)." - Karen

" I just want to tell you how great Hip Hound Holidays is for our dog Sally.

We are very comfortable leaving Sally with you as we know she is going to have a fun time and be well looked after in a home away from home.  I love it that you take photos and post them on facebook so we can see she is having a fun time while we are away.

It's nice to know that while we are away having a great holiday, so is Sally.  Thanks for offering a great service. " - Katrina

"Our elderly Golden Rretriever, Ginger, has been staying with Hip Hound Holidays over the past 2 years.  She has a wonderful time whenever she stays, whether for a day or for 6 weeks, and we can relax knowing she is getting the best care in a loving environment.  Sophia and her family are fantastic, and they manage the individual needs of their dogs regarding excercise, sleep and medication with no fuss! Quite simply  - the best boarding facility we have used. We are more than happy to drive Ginger from Sydney to stay in such beautiful surroundings - and she loves the company of the other dogs too.  I would recommend Hip Hound Holidays to anyone looking for a relaxed "farmstay" style boarding facility".  Clare, Paddington

"All three of our family dogs have stayed with Sophia at Hip Hound Holidays over the years.  It gives such peace of mind while we are away to know that not only is our dog being cared for so well but she is actually loving her stay.  To have her in an environment where she is busy and active with plenty of company and space, but can sleep inside in a home environment is really wonderful.  There is no anxiety for us or the dog at all, it's really such a great placefor them to be.  We would wholeheartedly recommend Hip Hound Holidays to anyone".

"We love Hip Hound Holidays and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Our dogs  have been there over the past 8 years, both for boarding and 'playgroup'. It's been like a home away from home for them. When we pick up Loki, our Australian Shepherd, he's excited to see us, but also darts back and forward between us and Sophia, as he knows he's leaving all his playmates! We love that it's a 'home away from home' for him. It's very personal; and any special needs are accommodated. The other big ticks for us are how evident it is that Sophia loves and cares for our '4 legged child', the updates of how he's going on Facebook and the homelike environment he gets to enjoy!! Feedback from all the people we've referred echo these sentiments. Thanks Sophia! "  - Lisa
