Hello, I’m Andrea, I provide a dog home boarding service in Leigh, Astley, Atherton, Tyldesley, Higher Folds, Westleigh, Aspull Common and the surrounding areas.
At Digs for Dogs, we know from experience that traditional kennels can be a daunting and stressful place for many animals. We provide dog owners with the perfect alternative to kennels so you can be confident that your four-legged friend will receive the same amount of love and attention that they are used to at home.
With our Dog Home Boarding service, we expertly match your dog with one of our loving pet sitters to give you complete peace of mind that your pet is cared for whilst you’re away.
Me and my dogs
I live in Whitefield with husband, my two children, Hannah and Benji and my gorgeous Labradoodle, Sparky. As a child I was never allowed a family dog, so as soon as I got the opportunity to have one of my own, I chose the biggest breed I could – an Old English Sheepdog named JoJo. It’s a passion that’s lasted a lifetime and I can’t get enough of these amazing creatures.
My Digs for Dogs Business
I met Lisa from Digs for Dogs as we stood on the side-lines watching our sons play on the same junior football team. When Lisa told me about the launch of the franchise opportunities, I had no hesitation in wanting to join them in their successful doggy world business. I’ve a great deal of experience working with dogs and it’s fantastic to put it to good use.
My home boarding team
As a dog owner myself, I understand how difficult it can be to find the right care for your precious pooch while you are away.
Digs for Dogs is a great alternative to kennels and the dogs are always truly loved and cared for. I have a fantastic team of carefully chosen loving home boarding families who provide a one to one home from home environment.
I do everything I can to find out about your dog’s individual needs to ensure I match them with the perfect host family for them – and I can guarantee that your dog will be spoilt rotten!
We’re always on the lookout for people to become a home boarder and provide a loving home to one of our dogs in Leigh, Astley, Atherton, Tyldesley, Higher Folds, Westleigh, Aspull Common and the surrounding areas.
Please give me a call on 07725 975762 and I’ll get straight to work.

Thanks for Digs for Dogs for looking after our dog Winnie for a week while we were on holiday. It was the first time she’d stayed with anyone other than family but Andrea was fantastic and kept us updated about all the fun Winnie was having while we were away.
I used Digs for Dogs for the first time during the Easter holidays. Admittedly, I was a little hesitant at first because my husky Nanook is quite clingy with me - plus he doesn't like change very much. Therefore, I worried about him fretting and pining for me. However, Andrea soon put my mind at ease with her professionalism, her calm approach, and her patience. She also answered all of my queries (and believe me I had a lot). Andrea reassured me that Nanook would be well looked after by the host Elaine (and he sure was). Elaine was amazing in every single way. She kept me updated constantly with texts, photos and videos of my boy. Thank you Andrea, and thank you Elaine - you have both been absolutely fantastic and have offered a first class service from start to finish. I will most definitely be using Digs for Dogs every time I go on holiday.
We always use Digs for Dogs when going away. They are so professional and Andrea has taken so much care when placing my two dogs for boarding. Don’t know what I would do without her and Digs for Dogs. My girls are always happy and come back happy. The host always keeps me informed of how they are doing and should they need attention at the vets everything runs smoothly. Highly recommended and couldn’t ask for anything more. Such a comfort when we are away. Thank you for what you do xx
