Our Story

Hi there! I'm Eddy Morris, a dog lover and a proud owner to two adorable rescue dogs. They are my family and you can see their cute pictures on the gallery. My wife, Tania (Tan), helps me run this business. We have a lot of experience with dogs of different sizes and breeds, and we care deeply about animal welfare. We have rescued many dogs over the years and given them a loving home.  

We are absolutely thrilled to have been named the Dog Boarding Company of the Year 2023/24 for Worcestershire by Prestige Awards.


We are licenced with Worcestershire Regulatory Services 22/06365/ANIACT, for dog home boarding and daycare, achieving the Higher Standards of Welfare rating. We both hold OFQUAL Qualification Level 3 in Canine Care, Behaviour and Welfare together with Canine First Aid and CPR and have undertaken various courses on Dog Law, Dog Nutrition and Behaviour and Training. A DBS/CRB check is also available. The business is insured with Protectivity.  Tan also holds a Higher Diploma in Photography and can also offer photo shoots and loves nothing better than being with dogs and a Nikon camera.


The DogFather Worcester was founded in 2016. We started as a dog walking service to accommodate our deaf lurcher Spooky Boo, who had a spinal injury from a slip in 2015.  As she was initially paralyzed from the waist down, we used all the annual leave from our day jobs to give her 24/7 care, spreading the caregiving between us.  As months went on it became clear that a permanent solution was needed, so The DogFather began.  Becoming self-employed allowed me to spend more time with Spooky and I could work around her needs.  It was the ideal solution and the business has grown from strength to strength.

We've been dog owners for over 40 years, owning and walking quite a selection of dogs from toy to giant breeds (and everything in between), abled and 'differently abled'.  Dog rescue and animal welfare has formed a large part of mine and Tania's lives and we were delighted to have fostered for Evesham Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue.  Our latest rescue is Sally and despite training her to use a front wheelchair and prosthetic legs, she prefers to ride in style in her own dog buggy.  Sally's forelegs were severely damaged due to gunshot whilst she was on the streets in Tunisia leaving her permanently disabled (or as we like to say differently abled)!​​


Highlights have been teaching sign language to our deaf rescue Spooky Boo and rehabilitating her with my wife Tania, to walk again following a fall and a severe spinal injury.  Also finally getting nervous Ozzy to come out from under the bed (he was there for 3 months popping out when no-one was looking) to becoming a fun loving dog with a huge personality.  We've also been involved with ground breaking stem cell therapy for Peg, in an attempt to relieve her crippling osteoarthritis.

Our family past and present

If you are looking for a trustworthy and affordable dog home boarding and daycare service in Worcester, look no further than us. We guarantee a professional and reliable service that meets your dog's needs. We provide individual attention to your dog, including medications and supplements if needed, and reinforce their training.


We also offer fun and stimulating activities for your dog, such as treat hunting in the sensory garden. We only walk on-lead to ensure your dog's safety and well-being. Your dog will get lots of cuddles and fuss if they are happy with the attention, or left to chill quietly if they prefer to be separate - each dog dictates the approach we take on an individual basis.
