Dogs love people just as much as people love their dogs and sometimes they just don’t want to be left alone.

That’s where we come in…

If you have to be out for the day, or for several hours, you can rest assured that your canine friend is happy, playing and socialising with us.

Just drop them off with us for the day and we’ll keep them entertained, fed, watered and walked until you get back.

All our kennels have a quiet area with a raised bed, plus a covered exercise area.  They can bring their favourite toy or treat with them and will be safely looked after in our secure kennels, whilst enjoying a nice view over the paddock.

During their stay, they will be taken on walks in the surrounding woodland or, if preferred, we offer a secure paddock area where they can also play and exercise.
