We are a family-run business, which prides itself on its friendly atmosphere and high standards. We work hard to ensure that all pets receive a high standard of care and enjoy their stay with us.
All tomcats MUST be neutered.
Please check your pet before coming into kennels, and ensure they are clear.
We can and will administer medication and injections. Please bring medication clearly named and with written instructions. Should your pet require any out of hour’s medication or injections an extra fee will be charged.
During busy periods you will be asked for a non-returnable deposit when booking as we always have a waiting list. If you need to cancel we will try to fill the place, in which case we will return your deposit, however, if cancellation is very late this may not be possible.
All animals must be paid for by either cheque or cash *on collection.
*New customers will be asked to leave a deposit on the first occasion they use the kennels/cattery. If you return for a subsequent visit this will not be necessary.
If you wish to bring your pet’s own bed/bedding and toys you can but we have plenty available. We cannot take responsibility for any lost or damaged items and we are unable to wash large dog beds and bedding. Bedding does get soiled as dogs go to and from the paddocks in bad weather, please bear this in mind should you bring your own into the kennels. Bean-bag beds are not allowed.
We can provide this service for an extra charge depending on the distance and time required. Please ask for further details.
We have an independent Dog Groomer working here and she can bath or trim your dog before it goes home. Please ask for details to make an appointment with her.
All dogs and cats must be fully vaccinated.. Please remember to bring your record card with you, as animals cannot be admitted without proof that vaccinations are up to date. The card remains on the premises whilst the animal is in our care.
N.B. THIS IS FOR THE HEALTH OF ALL ANIMALS AND IS
We require all dogs to have had the kennel cough vaccine. This is NOT usually included in your dog’s annual boosters. If you are unsure, contact your vet for details.
All our kennels have both indoor and outdoor areas. In addition to standard regulation size kennels we have larger pens for two or more dogs (these also house the giant breeds). We try to keep one block for larger dogs and one for smaller breeds; in addition we do have some quiet kennels for elderly or nervous dogs. All kennels will be heated overnight at colder times of the year (all day heating can be provided at an extra charge).
We have an indoor cattery. All pens are large enough to take two cats but we do have some pens that can take three. During colder periods the whole cattery is heated.
Dogs are individually exercised off the lead three times daily in our enclosed paddocks. Dogs kennelled together will be exercised together.
We stock a wide range of foods and will feed your pet the same food it is fed at home. If your pet is on a special diet that we do not stock, owners are asked to supply the food themselves and we will reduce the fee by 50p per day.
