Dalarna lodge

Established: November 2010

Welcome to “Dalarna lodge” rabbit, guinea pig and tortoise holiday lodge in Fareham.

I offer Pet Boarding for small animals in Fareham, Hampshire (near to Portchester, Gosport, Portsmouth, Southampton, Southsea, Lee on Solent). I offer small pet boarding for your pets while you are away on holiday either for a short stay or long stay depending on your needs. I offer your pets a home from home where they are part of the family while they are here with us.

I offer the following pet boarding services:-
 guinea pig boarding,  rabbit boarding,  and tortoise boarding (herman, Horsefield, European spur, marginated).

Please click on the appropriate link at the top of the page for further information.

As part of the boarding service, I can send you photos of your pet/s while they are staying with us. Even if you do not check your e-mails until you get home, they will be there waiting for you to see. This is at no extra cost.

If you do not have an e-mail but have a mobile phone, I can text you to let you know how your pet is getting on. This is also at no extra cost.

Please note: I do not offer boarding to dogs or cats.

Vaccinations for rabbits


Please note: Without proof of up to date Vaccinations (yearly combo vaccine) your rabbits will not be able to board with us. It is not worth the risk of illness or even death, if there was to be an out break. Even if your rabbit/s are house rabbits and do not go outside they can still catch VHD or myxomatosis. If you arrive without proof of your rabbits combination vaccinations being up to date, I will have to turn you away.


There is a new strain of VHD going around. This is not covered by the yearly combination vaccination. It is recommended you ask your vet about getting your rabbit(s) covered for this, as you may need to go on a waiting list. You need to leave at least 2 weeks between getting your rabbit vaccinated for the yearly combination vaccination and the new VHD2 vaccination.


A couple of past customer reviews:

Thank you for looking after Jimmy, Maggie and the guineas again.  We could see from the photos you emailed that they were very happy and content staying with you as usual.

Many thanks for taking such good care of them and for giving the guineas a bath !

See you soon.

Diane and Steve, Fareham.
