About us

Sausages and Eggs is a licensed, boutique home day care and boarding service, specialising in care for dachshunds. Based four miles outside of Cambridge, UK, and close to Stansted Airport, Sausages and Eggs is run by Sophie and her husband, along with their two resident dachshunds.

We are OFQUAL Level 3 qualified in Canine Care, Behaviour and Welfare, Canine Health and First Aid trained, and insured by Protectivity Insurance.

Sausages and Eggs was inspired by our love for dachshunds and the experience we faced when we had to board our first for the first time. Whilst there are some fantastic kennels, we knew that our dachshund wasn’t suited to the environment. We wanted to find a home; where he wasn't going to be kept in a cage or left on his own, and where we could get regular updates to put our mind at ease. Unfortunately we couldn't find what we were looking for locally, and we ended up travelling a long distance to find somewhere suitable.

This inspired us to set up Sausages and Eggs to help other dachshund owners like us. So if you ask, what came first the Sausage or the Egg? It was the Sausage!

A personalised experience

At Sausages and Eggs, we only care for a small number of sausages at one time, to ensure that we can keep our service personalised and take care of each guest’s individual needs, likes and dislikes, whilst getting to know their individual personalities. We also believe that owners should be able to get regular updates from boarders during a stay, so commit to providing you with at least one daily update with photos or videos.

Care by dachshund owners

We are big dachshund enthusiasts, and therefore we are equipped with specialist knowledge on the breed, however, front and foremost we are dachshund owners. Because of this, we always put our own dachshunds' experience at the heart of what we do and will care for your sausage as if they were our own. We also have a very dachshund friendly house with lots of ramps and stair gates to look after their physical health.

A little bit of luxury

We like to think of a stay with us as boutique break for your sausage so in addition to offering unlimited cuddles and belly rubs, we give all new overnight guests (subject to successful trial) or regular day care guests a free Sausages and Eggs breakfast goody bag. We also offer a number of extra boutique experiences for guests including our Pampaw Me Spa experience and Celebrate Woof Times experience for any special occasions your dog might be celebrating whilst staying with us. We are also happy to accommodate any special requests.
