update each time to ensure we are aware of any problems your dog may have .. Click above to read this agreement or you can print it off to save time when checking in !!
Only fully vaccinated dogs are accepted for boarding , and a current vaccination
certificate must be produced when booking in , or we will not be able to accept them.

details of last worming and flea treatment to be in line with DEFRA guidelines . However there is no requirement for them
to be up to date with these . The form also asks for Microchip number and Insurance details ,and an emergency contact person
-name, number , address and email address please bring these details with you. These are the DEFRA requirements .
We are happy to do medications for dogs , but suggest you discuss any health issues with your vet prior to boarding
, as being in kennels can have a large effect on some medical conditions - eg Diabetes, Liver or Kidney problems and
epilepsy , and may alter their medication rquirements .
We accept ANY BREED OF DOG
for boarding and charge the same for ALL BREEDS.
have a block dedicated to boarding Greyhounds as they are
sometimes not used to seeing other breeds, always mention you have a greyhound when making a booking.
All the kennels are suitable for large breeds with lots of
space and a large hatch.
Sharing dogs must get on,
we reserve the right to split them up if they show aggression to each other, and kennel them separately if we deem necessary,
at extra cost.
Vaccination against Parvo Virus, Leptospirosis,
Hepatitis, and Distemper is essential.
We do not insist on Kennel Cough Vaccine
, but strongly recommend it and suggest you discuss this with your vet, who will advise you what is best for your dog.But
remember if your dog is coughing the day you bring it in for boarding and we think it has kennel cough - it won't be staying!!
reason I don't insist on Kennel Cough is because even with Kennel Cough protection dogs can still contract it . It is
not a fatal disease . We are very tight on cross infection control and since opening in 2007 have had no issues with kennel
Cough . Some dogs are too traumatised with the experience of this method of application up their nose and cannot tolerate
it - we cater for those dogs - too nervous, too aggressive , too upset . It is for that reason we don't insist on
but recommend it.
The majority of our boarders are covered for kennel cough but we are happy to cater for the
few that cannot be .
This decision has been made after lengthy discussions with our Vet.
If you choose
not to protect your dog against Kennel Cough, it is at your risk and we will not be responsible for Kennel Cough or related
We will not accept an ill dog for boarding(eg one that is coughing!) or
