KENNEL & CATTERY FACILITIES

The Kennels

Dogs in our boarding kennels, PeterboroughOur kennels are of solid construction, clean and fully heated (depending on the boarder's needs and the weather).

We provide plastic baskets and soft blankets, which are regularly laundered – some dogs like to bring a comforter (although, this must be washable please) and their favourite toy.

Food and Diets

All boarders are all fed twice daily and we try to feed the diet they are used to at home. We have a wide variety of food available, and only use premium branded foods products. We can cater for those boarders who may be a little fussy and we find chicken or tuna is a favourite!

(Unfortunately, we are unable to accomodate raw meat diets for boarders for health and safety reasons.)

Accomodation and Exercise

All dogs are kennelled and exercised individually (only those from the same household share).

When exercised the dogs have plenty of fun off-lead in one of our large, secure grassed exercise paddocks. The dogs have access to the paddocks a number of times a day whether they want to chase a ball, have good run round or just a sniff!  These are floodlit for the late evening ‘let out’ when the dogs are exercised just before bedtime (long after other kennels are closed for the evening). To finish off the day is the ever popular ‘biscuit at bedtime' routine before bedtime.

The kennels themselves are fully heated and have covered outside runs which are attached to a secure safety corridor.

Puppies

We do cater for very young puppies as long as they are fully vaccinated.  Puppies are fed a number of times a day. We love to board puppies because the younger we have them the easier it is for them to board with us throughout their life.  All they want to do is play, eat and sleep and then repeat!

Oldies and Quieter Boarders

Not all our boarders want to run around and cause havoc, so we cater for those with a more sedate deposition – this may mean just spending a little more time with them and few extra pats everyday.


The Cattery

Cat in heated pen Our Cattery is secure and fully heated (depending on the cat's needs and the weather) where all cats are individually boarded.

Premium, branded foods are provided with a selection of tins, pouches and dry food. If your cat is feeling a little fussy we do cater for this with other foods. Cosy bedding is supplied and regularly laundered; cats can also bring a comforter and their favourite toy.

Every cat's litter tray is changed twice daily.

Kittens

We cater for kittens as long as they are fully vaccinated, we have a wide variety of kitten food which they are fed a number of times a day and they can bring their toys.
