Nice to meet you!
My name is Sonja, and I run Ballachulish Bed & Biscuits – an exclusive luxury home boarding service for dogs. I am fully licensed by The Highland Council and fully insured.
I no longer look at dogs as just a pet or family members. They are so much more...
I relocated to the Highlands from London in August 2022, where I successfully ran my dog care service, Dogs at Heart, for five years. Although I have relocated, I still run the business with the help of my trusted staff and I oversee operations. Please feel free to check out our 5-star reviews on Google.
I have a wealth of experience with different breeds ranging from the Chihuahua to the Husky, and I am knowledgeable and confident in handling a variety of behaviours and personalities that our amazing canine friends bring.
For the past 5 years, my fascination with dog language and behaviour has grown considerably, and over time I have helped clients overcome some of their own dog's challenging behaviours with great success and something I am very proud of.
I no longer look at dogs as just a pet or family members, they are so much more, and every day they continue to be great teachers to me, with my own dog being no exception.
At the beginning of 2023, I was invited to join the committee of the Lochaber and District Canine Society (LDCS), which I graciously accepted and am enjoying being part of a team of wonderful people who promote responsible dog ownership by teaching owners to train their dogs for everyday life situations.
I absolutely adore working with dogs, and it has been a life-long dream to do so surrounded by mountains and the big skies which the beautiful Highlands of Scotland bring.
