Welcome to Cromwell Dog


Welcome to Cromwell Dog where the happiness and well-being of your furry family friend is at the heart of what we do.


We only use kind, ethical and positive rewards with the animals in our care. Choice, freedom and fun are a given.


Our services 

We offer a range of dog and other types of animal care in our home or yours. 

  • dog training in small classes or one to one to help with a wide range of issues including lead pulling, your dog not coming back when you call or stopping jumping up

  • help referring on and working alongside an accredited behaviourist to help with more extreme behaviours like fear of going on walks or excessive barking


  • visiting your pet/s while you are at work or on holiday to feed, clean, walk and play (not just dogs - horses, birds, reptiles and small furries too!). Daytime visits or short evening babysits (not currently offering overnight stays at yours)

  • dog walks - one offs or regular


  • home dog boarding staying at Cromwell Dog Hotel: our fully licensed, inspected and insured large house and garden located on the outskirts of Basingstoke town centre


  • home dog boarding with optional training element for basic skills like walking calmly on the lead, crate familiarisation, impulse control or settle on the mat - with sessions when you get home to show you how to carry on what your dog has learnt

  • fully insured pet taxi to safely transport your dog to and fro including to and from our home boarding facility, to and from walks either out and about or at our private, enclosed field or to and from vet visits. This is for your pet only: we are not licensed to carry humans!


About us 


Lisa and Paul live with their dog Nova and two secondary age children in Basingstoke.


They have had two dogs from rescue in a row and have experience welcoming furry guests with a long settling in process. Chickens, fish and a tortoise complete the menagerie.

We hold a five-star higher level home boarding and daycare licence at Cromwell Dog Hotel - the highest you can have - from Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council (reference 20/00273/AWAAL).

Lisa is an accredited Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC-ATI) having completed the Professional Association of Canine Trainers'

canine instructors course. She also has an Institute of Modern Dog Trainers' (IMDT) Level 3 in Professional Daycare and Boarding.

The ethos
 of these organisations is kind, reward-based and scientifically-backed approaches to dog interactions.

We are qualified in both dog and human first aid. Fully insured. Advanced DBS checked.


We try to work in the way you prefer and feel comfortable with: we are visible and invisible disability-affirming, can ditch the tech and pick up the phone, work with the whole family (Lisa used to be an Ofsted-registered childminder) and are inclusive.




Certified by the International Companion Animal Network


Testimonials from Cromwell Dog Hotel's customers

"I would highly recommend Lisa’s pet care, she looked after my mum’s cat whilst she was in hospital. Lisa started by thoroughly establishing the cat’s needs. All our expectations were met. I would definitely use this service again."
