All dogs must have proof of current vaccinations (C5). Our primary focus is always the dog’s wellbeing, with this in mind, we have elected to set an upper boarding limit of 4 weeks. If you need to be away from your pet for longer than this, we recommend reaching out to a qualified and truster house or pet sitter. 

Dogs sharing kennels must be from the same family, or are known to socialise well together.

Please email for enquiries or to make a booking. We have many regular clients and book out quickly for all peak season times – school holidays, Christmas, Easter, Long Weekends – if you know you are going to be away please make your booking as soon as possible.

All money raised through our Boarding service helps to directly fund our rescue and re-homing work.
