Our Kennel Facilities

Our Kennel Facilities:

"Bark Lane” & "Sniff Street” consist of:

  • Four blocks.
  • Each one with six large units.
  • All of which have heating facilities.
  • Each of these facilities has a two meter square under cover area.

"Terrier Territory" consists of:

  • Six smaller units and
  • Seven slightly larger ones.These are fully enclosed on the sides and protected with 3.5 mm welded mesh for those escape artists, and those cocky individuals who would like the opportunity to mix it with their canine neighbours.

Elderly Clients:

  • The last of our six units, under full cover, are used for our elderly clients on those rainy days.
  • This facility is also used to house those well groomed clients prior to departure.
  • By nature most dogs are territorial, and are protective of their home environment, yet
  • When on neutral territory are mostly social by nature and like most of their human family, enjoy companionship.

On Arrival:

  • All of our guests get a visual health check whilst confirming that all the necessary inoculations have been administered.
  • It is vital that no animals are admitted without proof of this having been done.
    Again, a daily visual check is carried out first thing in the morning, during the day, and again in the evening,
  • With a little treat being given on our good night and sleep tight check.


  • All of our guests are taken through to our Grooming Parlour.
  • Here they are bathed, dipped and brushed before going home.
  • Every effort is made to return them in immaculate condition.


  • All dogs are exercised daily, either on lead or left to have a free run in our fully enclosed exercise areas.
  • This provides them the opportunity to stretch their legs, relieve themselves and have a good old bark at their neighbours.
  • Daily cleaning and disinfecting of the kennels is carried out whilst your pets are being exercised.
  • This also helps to reduce stress.


  • Feeding of our clients is personally supervised by the staff.
  • All food and water bowls are cleaned and disinfected daily.

  • Our guests are especially partial to Marie biscuits!


Should any of our customers require medication, we will gladly administer as per your veterinarian's instructions.
