Each comfortable space has an individual covered run and we provide paved and shingle exercise paddocks for further leg stretching and ball throwing etc at least three times a day.
The set up is sociable but secure. Dogs can see each other and interact but without physical contact. Through our years of experience, we know even the most genial dog can have an ‘off day’ so we only run dogs from the same family together. We guarantee to NEVER mix your dog with a stranger.
We have two blocks and three exercise areas so that large or boisterous dogs are housed separately from small ones that may be nervous of big neighbours. A quiet hospital wing is available for very old dogs that may need extra attention.
Wood-burning stoves heat all of our boarding blocks and dogs are bedded on carpeted, raised platforms with plenty of rugs and blankets for snuggling into. Background music helps to promote a home-from-home atmosphere. Some collecting customers have reported the kennels to be more comfortable then their holiday accommodation had been!
The pens are luxurious and private with plenty of home comforts like a Wood-Burning stove AND individual heated beds, knitted blankets, cuddly toys and sisal scratching posts.
Several pods, baskets and cushions are provided for sleeping – cats like to have a choice. Each space has a window with a shelf for watching out of when the weather is grim.
Floors have rugs – we know how much cats hate cold feet – and long-term boarders get days out in our heated sun parlour – all part of the service.
Outside, each run has a fleece hammock for all day sunbathing and a wooden branch for scratching or climbing. For those that like a bit of nightlife, some spaces have cat doors. Otherwise our guests are securely closed in after dark.
We aim to make your cat as comfortable as possible, given that cats are not fond of change. We make a lot of fuss of them and take time to play if they want to. If they don’t – well we understand when they say ‘JUST GO AWAY SO I CAN SLEEP’ !
