We are now taking bookings from customers who are planning a much needed holiday.

Please use the book online now button to create an account and you can check availability in your own time. If your an existing customer you can login using the email you provided and your password that you created when you first booked in. The system will say we are full if you choose to drop off or collect on either a Sunday or Bank Holiday as reception is closed. We also have limited opening hours over Christmas and these can be found on the reception closures page.

We are getting a lot of enquiries now for June onwards so please book in early to avoid disappointment.

This year we have reduced our deposit to 20% which is non refundable.

Our industry has suffered and many kennels, catteries and home boarders have sadly had to close however the number of new dogs people have obtained during lockdown has been phenomenal. There will be a shortage of space for these pets once things are back to normal so please do not leave it too long to organise your plans. We only have 11 catteries so cats are even more important to get booked in to avoid disappointment.

We are open for viewings which are socially distanced and by appointment only.

Pets can be dropped off/collected by appointment only at this present time due to COVID.

We have had a lot of enquiries of late regarding dogs that are reactive to other dogs. We do not mix dogs at any time so this is not an issue. We can also take dogs that are fearful of people and reactive to people. Please call us to discuss things if this is the case or you can email one of our owners at bookings@oakenshawboardingkennels.co.uk 

Please take care and stay safe.


Many thanks
