I left Munch for the first time
in 12 years to take a much needed holiday. I was very worried he wouldn't cope
without me as he hates being away from me, even if friends want to walk him he
pulls back to my house and dosen't want to go.
What a joy it was on
collection to see him relaxed, happy and chilled out in his room. He was so well
looked after and he enjoyed his holiday as much as I did. He spent the first
night home getting lots of hugs and cuddles and tried to lick me to death all
He will certainly be back again next time I can get away for a
holiday. Thank you Jo and the team. I will be recommending you to all my friends
with much loved dogs. Munch 'the boss' standing up front with his family before
Sonny (the red one) and Cassie (the black one) passed away. His last remaing
brother Rizza (the white one) is still with us and really enjoyed his holiday
too with my friend and her children. thanks again

Thanks Jo for looking after Rocco and making his stay a very enjoyable one. It was such a relief to go on holiday and know Rocco would be looked after the
same way as at home.
He enjoyed making friends and is looking forward to the delivery of his new food, especially the salmon one.
Rocco will be back next year sometime, thanks Sheila, Bill & Rocco

A big thank you to Jo and her
fantastic team for giving Diesel a great time during his stay at Hayfields and
for giving us as a family great peace of mind. Like many before we had searched
and searched for a place where we felt Diesel would be well cared for and happy
and in finding Hayfields we were not disappointed.
During our holiday we
logged onto the Hayfields website only to see Diesel in the Rogues Gallery, it
made our day!
Diesel came home happy, leaner and alot fitter.
all once again Jayne, Martin & Jake

We left our 14 month old Lab
Gerrard with Jo for just under 2 weeks.
From the moment we called Jo to ask
her about leaving Gerrard with her she was so accomodating in every way.
let us go and have a look around and take Gerrard to meet her.
he went to Jo was not on the greatest diet and he didnt seem to enjoy his food
at all. But Jos knowledge and expertise sorted all that out for us! Gerrard is
know licking his bowel and fed twice a day on Natural food.
is a Dog Hotel with special care and attention taken with your dogs
needs.Gerrard will never stop anywere else when we have to leave him again
because nothing comes close to what we have experienced from Jo and her
Thank You so much.

A Home Away From Home
“ I had a very positive experience boarding my two dogs with Jo at Hayfields. I suffer with probably more separation anxiety than ever my dogs do with regards to leaving them! When I found it necessary to board them for 8 days, I did painstaking research to find a place for Sophie and Jasmine that was closely aligned with my own philosophy. Jo has created a wonderful environment for dogs that feels like an extension of her lovely home, so that the doggie guests feel like family and get plenty of attention. I like the fact that there are never more than a handful of dogs boarding at any one time... there is no anxiety or rows of barking dogs here! The grounds of her property are beautiful and the girls got plenty of outside time which was a vital component of my decision to board them with Jo... as was the wholesome, all-natural diet she feeds, just like they get at home! My girls looked fabulous, vibrant and full of energy when I returned to collect them. I would not hesitate to recommend Jo and Hayfields to
“ Lilly,is a boisterous fun loving two year old labrador.We were concerned about putting her into kennels as we had a previous bad
experience. Jo Amsel, the owner, took Lilly under her wing and gave her a loving home environment together with some training and lots of exercise in Hayfield's extensive grounds. We will most definitely use the kennels again. We feel that with Jo's own dogs a lot of optional socialising is available, which for Lilly was a very good thing.She made a very good friend with a resident sausage dog!. Thank you Jo for the lovely photos you sent. ”

Moth's Stay At Hayfields
“ Hayfields is aptly titled as a Hotel. It is clean beautifully kept and the kennels are the perfect size for small dogs. Jo clearly loves all the dogs she owns and has to stay and they are very well cared for with lots of walks and running free. ”
Arthur Foster, Buckinghamshire
Hayfields Dog Hotel Citation
“ The most important thing dog owners want to know when they're away is that their dogs are being properly looked after, fed well and loved. Jo Amsell is a dog lover through and through - and we quite simply wouldn't trust anyone else looking after our boys. Our dogs come back happy, fit, healthy and, dare we say it reluctantly after we collect them!
Barry & Amanda Cashin ” Hertfordshire
Home From Home
“ My dogs (a toy breed) have always been very happy and well cared for at Hayfields. They range in age from 13 years with special needs, to 1 year. All their needs are catered for and they come home looking as fit and happy as when I left them. Wonderful personal service and the kindest of attention.
This is an establishment to which I travel many miles to leave my dogs, as I trust them with no-one else. ”
Pat Spencer, Gwent
Hayfields Is Gorgeous! My Dogs Love It There!
“ The only place I leave my dogs is at Hayfields with Jo. My dogs love it there. I trust very few people with the care of my dogs (I tend towards being neurotic about them) and Jo is one of the few.
I had an awful experience with another boarding kennels where my dogs spent a week there and when I picked them up they had lost a lot of weight, and were depressed and listless. I vowed never to leave them in kennels again but was really stuck, and a friend recommended Hayfields in really glowing terms so I went to visit. I’m very thankful that I found Hayfields as I can now go on holiday without worrying about my dogs being OK. I know they’re better than OK!
My dogs are excited when we drive up to Hayfields and they realise where we’re going, and they’re always over the moon to see Jo – wagging their tails furiously, jumping up at her and greeting her like a long lost friend! Sometimes you’ve just got to listen to the dogs.
The set-up at Hayfields means that the dogs are in the house and part of every day life, but they get their own space to kick back and relax. And they also have access to their own outdoor space which makes a huge difference. This is no smelly kennel set-up with clanging metal doors! The dog suites are integrated into Jo’s stunning home and the whole place is spotless. And it’s no exaggeration that the dogs have their dinner cooked in the Aga!
The countryside around Hayfields is beautiful and I’ve walked with Jo around her land with my dogs – it’s a great place for the dogs to get lots of exercise and eye up the sheep in the surrounding fields - all securely fenced off so no worries there. The secure paddocks where the dogs can run free are brilliant. And the CCTV cameras trained around the house and land are a definite plus from a security perspective.
I would recommend Hayfields and Jo to any dog! ”
