Nestled in the middle of our 28 acres of pasture is our kennel and cattery complex.
We have indoor, woodheated and cooled kennel quarters, with over 40 outside individual exercise yards, complete with shelters, play equip, baths, toys and loads of water! Dogs enjoy all day play, apart from in inclement weather, and then cuddle up inside to eat and sleep of a night. All dogs are housed individually in kennel and exercise areas, unless there is 2 or more dogs from the same family, we can accomodate them together at your request.
Here are some pictures of some of our outdoor day runs.

Vaccinations & Health Care
All dogs need to have a current vaccination, and you will need to produce your vaccination certificate each time you visit. Your dogs need to have the base vaccination(commonly called C3) plus the yearly booster shot for kennel cough(commonly called Protect 2), vets write it up differently, you would normally have 2 stickers on your vaccination certificate, if you are unsure please contact your vet and make sure they have had the necessary vaccinations to allow them to go into boarding. Vaccinations usually need at least 7 days to be fully working so make sure you have their shots completed in time to come into boarding. All dogs must also be fully wormed and flea free, otherwise they will be treated by us and the cost will be added to your bill.
We feed Bonnie Complete dry food, fresh beef and lamb, diced and minced, chicken necks, chicken carcasses and chicken mince,4 Legs natural dog rolls, as well as raw bones at the owners request. We do not supply tinned food but you are more than welcome to bring your own for us to feed your pets with, together with any other special dietry needs they may have.
Our cattery is completely indoors, is light and colourful, with fully marine carpeted runs, which are easily cleaned between stays. There are different size runs, with play equipment in each for you to choose from, all at the same daily price. Our largest run would accomodate 4 cats together if needed from the same family.

We have a huge variety of dry, tinned and fresh meats for your feline friends. Please discuss their individual favourites when you place a booking.
We complete daily assessment sheets on every VIP in our care. Rather than trying to remember everything you say, individual daily check sheets are attached to each kennel/cattery space, with your VIP's personal details. This tells us of daily medication requirements, special diets needs, any grooming you may have requested, to bedding and toys you have supplied. Each day we monitor their eating habits, bowel movements, water intake and general appearance. If anything doesn't look quite right we will let you know.
We have vets on call 24 hours a day, so rest assured that while your VIP is staying with us, if any problems arise, we will contact you or your agent and arrange for any additional vet care they may need.
We have music playing within the kennels and cattery 24 hours a day to keep your pets entertained.
We currently cater for up to 40 dogs and 20 cats, and do book out very quickly. To ensure you are not dissappointed, please make sure you book at least 4-6 weeks in advance for all Christmas, Easter, school holiday and long week end periods.
