PLEASE NOTE – DUE TO COVID19, WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY FURTHER KENNEL BOOKINGS  HOWEVER OUR PADDOCKS ARE STILL OPERATING AS USUAL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.

WHEN ARE THE KENNELS GOING TO RE-OPEN?
After much consideration, and many frustrated tears, we still cannot secure an opening date for the kennels. We said that after Easter we would make a decision, expecting Boris to give us good news during the last speech, but unfortunately he is still telling people not to book foreign holidays at the moment. Even if they do open the borders on the 17th of May, there will be many restrictions with the traffic light system. Amber and red (£1700 in a hotel per person) meaning isolation for 10 days and all 3 probably requiring 2 or more PCR tests per person at a cost of £120 per test. With all this extra cost incurred per person and losing 10 days pay after already taking 1 or 2 weeks off, and not forgetting you will need to either send somebody on your behalf to collect the dog as you will be in isolation or pay for the extra 10 days, there will be an obvious drop in the number of clients requiring kennels. Many people will also choose to holiday in the UK, and many taking their pets with them.
We have worked out our budget (which is non existent) and with no income, or very little, in the last 12 months, we calculated how many dogs we needed boarded just to break even and that includes not taking on any staff therefore working 24/7 every day,  and no wages for ourselves.  Therefore at this time, unless we have anymore help from the Government (£4000 in 12 months, which didn’t even cover our overheads) it seems unlikely we will be opening any time soon. We are not making a decision to close the kennels until we know if we can survive when we have more information from the Government.
Therefore we do not blame anyone for booking other kennels whilst we wait for any news. We know this is a huge blow after 30 years of trading, and it is not one that we have taken lightly, but we cannot expect our clients to keep waiting.
We sincerely apologise for any inconveniences caused and we hope we can give better news in 6 weeks

Boarding Kennels

Leaving your pet for several nights can be a daunting experience for you and your pet. We understand that your dog is part of the family and you wish for it to be treated as such, which is why our kennels are built for maximum comfort. Regular checks, walks and exercise ensures your pet receives the same level of treatment it is used to, from you.

We offer superb accommodation and exercise facilities to give you complete peace of mind while your pet is with us. Our approach to kennel management means that each dog receives plenty of individual attention and love in a “home-from-home” family environment.

What makes our Kennels special?

  • Heated, insulated kennels with individual runs. We have single, double and family size kennels and a choice of Luxury kennels too

  • Special diets are catered for.

  • Twice daily walks set in acres of beautiful countryside

  • Dedicated experienced caring staff

  • Full insurance cover

Why Pick Us?

Our facilities are fully licensed and approved by the local authority , and run by experienced staff mainly family.  The kennels  offer spacious, heated and comfortable accommodation, each with its own integral covered, outdoor run. Giant kennels are also available for up to four dogs from the same household to be able to board together.

Choosing the right kennels for dog boarding can be a tricky decision… We understand how much our clients’ dogs mean to them – and for this reason we have developed a truly outstanding facility which includes the following features and services to makes our kennels special? thus gives you peace of mind that your pet will be cared for, pampered and looked after without compromise.

In 2019, we opened our Garden suites. At 13 ft x 13 ft both inside and out, these are much roomier than our standard kennels. They are slo quieter, due to the double glazed windows and doors and being self contained in their own area, overlooking the walking paddocks and surrounding fields.  We only have 5 of these, so they book up fairly fast as they are already in demand.

Dog Paddocks

Lodge Farm paddocks is a professional and exclusive dog walking facility with beautiful fields that are fully enclosed with 6ft fences. This provides the perfect setting to allow your dog complete freedom off the lead in an exclusive and secure environment.
