I was brought up with dogs and owned a Welsh Corgi as a small girl. A close relative bred Staffordshire Bull Terriers and Cocker Spaniels so dogs were very much a part of my growing up. I also bred and showed Cavies (Guinea Pigs) so I was always at home with animals.

At Hazel Corner we treat every guest as though they were our own dogs and take great care to provide a warm, loving environment. It’s a huge responsibility to care for someone else’s much loved pet. All the team at Hazel Corner love dogs, have their own dogs, and have the right qualifications and experience. This is just as vital as having the best facilities.

We have many guests who we’ve seen grow from a small puppy, through their “teenage” years, and mature into lovely dogs. We get to know them well and they all enjoy spending their holidays with us. Each year we also get new arrivals and do our best to reassure them and their owners that a stay at Hazel Corner is fun. The pictures on our Facebook page show many of our doggy guests having a great time.

We’re fortunate that we’re set in seven acres of lovely Hertfordshire countryside surrounded by bridle paths and mature oaks. Here dogs can enjoy their nature walks and romp and play in complete safety. In the warm summer months our guests can enjoy lying on their patio well into the evening. In winter they can snuggle up to a warm radiator or lie on a tiled floor heated from underneath.

To those new to Hazel Corner I’d like to extend a very warm welcome and invite you to visit at any time during our opening hours for a guided tour. To all our loyal customers I’d like to say “thank you” for choosing Hazel Corner as often as you do. To my team I’d like to say a public “well done” for making holidays here as much fun as possible.

Best wishes,
Chris Sandiford
