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)

  • We have an extra care policy for cats and dogs that require medication/supplements or dogs with behavioural issues. It is worth calling us to discuss this prior to booking on 01924 863037 within our opening hours.

  • 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.

  • Up to date vaccination documents are required on drop off and we advise to get the kennel cough vaccine 14 days prior to your dogs stay with us but this is not compulsory, we can only offer advice .Failure to provide annual vaccination proof 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.) Please see further down the page for information on kennel cough.

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

  • 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. 

Kennel Cough Myth - Proper name is 'Infectious Bronchitis'.
YOUR DOG DOES NOT HAVE TO HAVE VISITED A KENNELS TO GET KENNEL COUGH - IT COULD BE EASILY CALLED VET COUGH OR DOG WALK COUGH.
Kennel cough is a highly infectious airborne condition, and can easily be spread. This means that dogs who have never been anywhere near a boarding kennel can develop kennel cough.
Here’s what you need to know about kennel cough to limit the possibility that your dog will be infected.
How Kennel Cough is Spread
Because kennel cough is very infectious, it is spread in much the same way as the common cold. Infected dogs will release virus and bacterial particles into their environment and this can be breathed in by other dogs,

who can then be affected themselves.
Humans can catch colds if they are in close proximity to someone who already has a cold or if they touch things that have also been used by them, and the situation is very similar with kennel cough. If your dog has close contact with an infected dog or shares food and water bowls or toys with them, they can easily develop kennel cough too.
Here at Oakenshaw Boarding kennels, we keep all dogs separate or within their family group. 
*  Food/water/ toys are not shared.
*  Dogs do not mix at exercise time and dogs do not get nose to nose contact. 
*  the kennels are well ventilated and we use the correct cleaning 
  fluids that not only kills the infectious bronchitis but is a full disease control product.
Vaccination isn’t a guarantee that your dog will never get kennel cough.
It is not usually dangerous and normally clears up without treatment within a few weeks.
Apart from your dog coughing, the infection is unlikely to make them feel ill
however puppies, elderly dogs and those with existing medical conditions can be susceptible too

complications to secondary issues. If you have concerns then please speak to your vet.
Kennel cough has an incubation period of 2 to 14 days. If your pet is given the vaccination then please do this 14 days prior to your kennel visit as it is a live vaccine.
