Our Kennel Facilities
Our kennels were built new in summer 2009. They provide our guests with an indoor heated sleeping compartment, and an outside run which is accessible through a hatch, these remain open between the hours of 6.30am and 10.00pm.
All the kennels are centrally heated with 12 providing extra underfloor heating.
You are most welcome to bring any bedding, toys, etc. that your dog particularly likes, which will make him/her feel more at home.
All dogs are exercised according to ability, and we have a big securely fenced play area where we socialise like sized and like minded dogs. This is where play time takes place with balls frisbys, etc.
When we walk the dogs around the fields we use long extendable leads, which allows more freedom and opportunities for sniffing the hedge backs, whilst still remaining under control. All dogs are walked at their own pace. It is important that they have good quality time outside of the kennels. Walks are varied by using different fields, allowing more fun to explore.
We understand the need for a safe, happy and disease-free stay for all our Doggy guests and this has been uppermost in the design of the Kennels, which are well ventilated.
There is a radio playing throughout the day, for a home from home environment, with lots of checks and cuddles throughout the day as standard. We will not accept any dog that is not vaccinated or kennel coughed before arrival, thus safe-guarding our guests from cross-infections.
