Booking Terms:

  • Opening times are as follows: 8.30am-12 noon and then 3pm-5pm. We close all day Sundays and Bank Holidays.

  • You are charged for the day you drop off and the day you collect, it does not make any difference if it is morning or afternoon. The gates will not open prior to 8.30am and will be closed at 12 noon prompt. The gates then re-open at 3pm-5pm prompt. If you get stuck in traffic then please notify us so we can give your pets their tea and keep them until the next day ( a days fee will be charged on collection)

  • The 3 hours that we close in the day is to spend more time exercising the dogs. We will not answer the phone however leave a message and we will call you back. 

  • We welcome viewings at our kennels however you will need to call to arrange a viewing due to busy periods and busy days, we do not want you to have to wait around whilst we sort out other customers.

  • A deposit of 20% is required on all bookings which is non refundable and not transferable to a future booking. This applies to pass holders i.e you use 10 days of your pass then you would loose 20% equivalent in days so 2 days.

  • When dropping your pet off, payment is required in full.

  • If you decide to collect your pet earlier than scheduled no refund is available or transferable. If you book in and decide to change your dates then the full cost of your original stay will be applicable unless you give us four weeks notice. We work exactly the same as hotels if that helps simplify things.

  • If you want to bring your own food then please provide it in a plastic container with your pets name on it and also the brand of food that you use, incase they run out during their stay.

  • We provide plastic beds with vet bedding and we also provide all bowls etc. We do not accept your belongings due to cross contamination.

  • Vaccination documents are required on drop off and these must include the kennel cough vaccine. If you have a dog that cannot have the kennel cough vaccine for whatever reason then please contact us. Failure to provide them will result in your pet going into our isolation and an extra 20% is charged on your booking. This is not negotiable so please do not forget your vaccination records. (Please note the vaccination against kennel cough does not give 100% cover and we will not be held liable should your dog contract it whilst with us.)

  • Under new legislation we also require the following information:

  • Pets insurance company and policy number if applicable. Microchip number, date of last flea and worm treatment and brand.

  • We have an extra care policy for all dogs and cats. This will be discussed at the time of booking depending on your pets requirements.

  • Heating is included in the price.

  • We do not mix or socialise dogs due to licensing regulations. (If an incident occurs who's dog is responsible?we do not put our customers or dogs in that position). Your dogs will be exercised on their own or if multiple dogs from the same family then that is permitted with a member of staff monitoring at all times.

  • If you have made a booking and fail to turn up or notify us that you are not coming in then you will not be able to board with us again and your payment will be due in full regardless if you turn up or not. This will be taken from the card you used to pay your deposit.

  • If you cancel your booking within 14 days of your arrival date then you will be charged for the full stay of the original booking, again, like a hotel. If you fail to comply with this then we will not be able to board your pets in the future.
