Your pets will never share accomodation

We never over book our kennels and will never make your pet share with other pet unless they are from the same family.  Some kennels will maximise their occupancy rates and revenue by having your pet share their kennels. When you book with us you can rest assured that your pet has their own secure kennel to board. The only space that will be shared are the exercise yards and this is strictly judged by your dogs temperament. No dog will never share a yard if there is any chance or any sign of aggression. A happy pet makes not only for a more comfortable stay for them but makes our jobs easier! 

Lots of new fur friendships are made in our exercise yards. It's a priceless moment when old friends meet up again at our kennels. Our policy for all guests is "We're all friends". Anyone that falls outside of this policy get to share a bordering yard only.

We're here to ensure you're happy with your choice in kennels and there's no greater sign of approval than a pet keen to pass through our gates to get down to the yards.
