About the Kennels
All our wings include, central heating and air conditioning with the deluxe wing having heated flooring with their own attached runs to the outside. We plan on creating a special wing for the "geriatric" guests that can have the peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the usual daily activities of the kennels and get to stretch their legs in a more quiet leisurely manner and would rather spend the time in the quiet snuggled up on their comfy beds.
Doggy daycare may also be an option for you, please contact us to discuss.
All dogs are exercised at least twice daily out in the grass yards or when wet we have two wet weather areas where they get to stretch their legs.
We feed Royal Canin, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Tux, Pro Plan, Black Hawk, Coprice to name a few or if you wish you may bring your own dog food. There is no reduction in the daily rate if you bring your own.
We are happy to administer any medication your pet may require for a small daily fee. We are also affiliated with various vets for any emergencies. We can worm your dogs for an extra fee also.
We are happy to have long term stays, please contact us directly regarding this.
When you are booked in for 10 nights or more in our deluxe wing you get a complimentary hydro bath and blow dry before your pooch is collected. Please see our grooming page if you would like your dog groomed before collection or would like just to book your dog in for regular grooms.
We will require you to leave a contact persons details while you are away in case of an emergency. If we have a nuisance dog we will contact you directly or your contact person for collection.
