​The Best Care  For Your Best Friend.

​About Us

​Bespoke Home Boarding and Day Care Services for Dachshunds.

​Hello and welcome, my name is Nicky Hammel and I run Rumi Home Boarding.  We are a family run business located in Southampton and we are dedicated to providing the best care for your best friend whist in the company of our resident Dachshunds Kimi, Rubi, Opie & Alonso.

Motivated by a passion for animals and deep understanding of quality care, when your Dachshund comes to Rumi Home Boarding, they become part of our family.  Dachshunds are unique and they love their own breed, here at Rumi Home Boarding we provide a bespoke luxury service where he or she can be in the company of their own breed and we and understand Dachshunds prefer human company to being alone.

Our Services

​We offer care 24 hours a day in our home. We can help with basic reward-based training and socialisation.

It is important for dogs to enjoy mental stimulation as well as exercise, we have lots of toys, puzzles and activities available as well as a secure garden area.

We have woods, a nature reserve and a beach nearby where we enjoy walks.

In order for dogs to be accepted for boarding/daycare they must complete an initial meet and greet/familiarisation by means of a walk, attend a half day/overnight trial and be up to date with all vaccinations.

For convenience we are 15 minutes from Southampton Airport, 10 minutes from Southampton Ferry/Cruise Terminal and Southampton Central Train Station.​
