Every effort will be made to contact you, and/or their emergency contact. However if no contact can be made, we will act on the best interests of your pet and seek veterinary advice, ideally from your vet. Please note any vet bills are chargeable to the owner.

Is it possible to drop off and collect outside of your opening hours?

This is discretionary due to the needs of our own staff. Staff are on site 24/7, however we do ask you respect our privacy outside of our opening times.

Not at this time.

Sundays 10-11 and 4-5

Can I bring my dog/cat into the kennel and set it up for them?

Yes, however we strongly advise against this, as this tends to agitate other residents, causing unnecessary stress to both them, and your pet. Please respect the staff in carrying out their role, and allow them to settle your pet in themselves.

Does my dog need kennel cough vaccinate to board with you?

Yes, we do insist on the kennel cough vaccine, to have been administered no sooner than 14 days before arrival, dogs without kennel cough vaccine are at a much higher risk

My dog/cat has had to restart their vaccination course, they have had one vaccination but are waiting for their second, can they still board with you?

Sadly not. All pets must be fully vaccinated in order to board with us.

Can I pay extra for my dog to be walked offsite?

This is not a service we currently provide.

My dog is fearful of strangers, will you still take them?

Yes. Our staff have ample experience in nervous dogs, with Lauren working as a behaviourist for many years, we will handle your pet in the safest way possible.


Happy Faces

Please see some of the reviews from our facebook page below

They swooped in and saved my holiday by finding a place for my dog. He spent the week and enjoyed getting to know everyone. By all accounts he had a great time. The staff are lovely and have an obvious love of our 4 legged friends. Great value for money as very competitive fees. Overall a great experience and will definitely be back again. Thanks so much guys Absolutely recommend!


Ran by wonderful caring people who also run a rescue so you will feel good knowing that your best dog/cat friends will be looked after. My nervous dog stayed here a few days and he came out happy and confident. I wouldnt use anywhere else now and i highly recommend this place 🐾


Absolutely think this place is the doggy knees❤️Charlie is a pampered pooch and his well-being is my first concern but he goes bouncing in and greets everyone with kisses and takes himself through the door leading to the kennels If that doesn’t show how incredible this place is then 🤷🏼‍♀️ Thank you from both Charlie and us for making him so happy and giving us 100% peace of mind ❤️
