Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Is my dog indoors or outdoors?
All kennels are brick built with a tiled floor, a bit like a small room. During the day the dogs can choose whether to be inside or outside, and at night they are shut inside.
Please note that the small dogs are in indoor kennels, and regularly go out to the exercise area.
Is there heating?
All the blocks have heating in the evening and overnight.
What can I bring?
Everything is provided, but you are welcome to bring any bedding, toys or treats that your dog is safe to be left with, along with any bedding. This is especially important with puppies.
You are also able to bring your own dog food if you prefer.
Does my dog need the kennel cough vaccine?
No we do not insist on the kennel cough vaccination, but the normal vaccination must have been given in the last 12 months. The vaccination card must be brought when checking your dog in. In exceptional circumstances we can telephone your vet for proof of vaccination.
Will my dog mix with other dogs?
No, each dog has his own kennel and is exercised separately, although dogs from the same family may share.
What food do you provide?
We provide various kinds of both wet and dry food suitable for all types of dogs. We do not provide any ‘non-specific’ dog food such as chicken, mince, tripe, cheese or fish. You are however welcome to provide any of these for your dog. We have both a fridge and freezer for storage. Please cook if necessary and bag up in individual portions. We also advise that all puppies come in with their own food.
How are the dogs exercised?
The larger dogs are either lead walked on our lane, or free run in our exercise area. The smaller dogs have 2 exercise areas specifically for them and they will go there several times a day.
My dog barks a lot?
Do not worry. We are quite used to noisy dogs and will try to kennel your dog in a calmer area.
