General Information:


We provide all vetbed bedding however you may wish to bring your pets favourite bed, sleeping basket or an item they normally lie on to remind them of home. We cannot guarantee bedding will be returned and or in the same condition it was brought in. Please note we accept no responsibility for the loss or damage to customer belongings ie. any toys / leads etc. The kennels are cleaned daily and toys etc are easily lost when the bedding etc is changed.

Travelling to and from Boarding Accommodation

We strongly advise that you transport your cat in a suitably secure basket or container when carrying him/her outside in a strange environment. You will remain liable for your pet until it is safely inside its allocated accommodation.

Dogs shall remain on leads at all times until safely inside their accommodation suite.


We are happy for you to provide your pets normal diet to reduce the stress caused by diet change whilst at kennels. However we do keep a wide range of food, both wet and dry, in stock. All food is prepared hygienically in the purpose-built kitchen. Regular mealtimes are strictly adhered to. Special diets or medication can be administered. Extra costs may be applied in some cases.

All pets will be examined on arrival and we reserve the right to refuse admission to any animal showing signs of ill-health, pending advice from a veterinary surgeon. Responsible owners will appreciate that this policy is essential to safeguard the health of all our boarders. All pets should arrive fully treated for fleas and up to date with vaccinations. Should any animal be found to be hosting fleas, the person responsible for collecting the animal will at the time of collection, be liable for all costs of treating both the animal and the surrounding environment should it be considered necessary.
