About Ellen

Daycare / Overnight & Holiday Care- 7 Days Per Week

Limited to 6 small companion breeds up to 10 kg 

Lap of Luxury is a local, independent company, based in Amersham, specialising in the provision of boutique day and overnight care for your beloved companions. We provide a range of services designed to make your dog as happy, stimulated and comfortable as possible. 

We focus on gentle socialisation and playing, with many young dogs not having been able to socialise enough during Covid lockdowns. If you continue to work from home, it can be helpful for your dog to have a change of scenery and to meet new people and play with different dogs in a safe and well-supervised environment.

Our Facilities

  • A home-from-home with a 100-foot, dog-proofed garden.
  • Air-conditioned home.
  • Doggy swimming pool in the garden during warm months. Walks around Amersham, local parks.
  • About Me

    Having finished a career in marketing and advertising, then as a children’s/youth charity fundraiser, I decided to turn my lifelong passion for dogs into a lifestyle business. My dog and I look forward to welcoming you and your dogs into our home.

    • Induction Process

      My focus is on dogs’ comfort with the appropriate blend of small companion dogs, getting to know my home, garden and some of the other dogs in my care. Unfortunately, boarding bookings for dogs who have not completed the induction process are not possible. If you have a holiday coming up, let's get the induction process completed to enable you to schedule a lovely holiday for your dog while you are away.

      1 – One hour meet and greet for owner(s) and dog(s).
      2 – Four hour familiarisation session with you here for first half hour.
      3 – Eight hour day (or) overnight stay if you will be boarding.

      One overnight stay is required before a longer-term boarding booking is accepted to ensure your dog will be comfortable.
