Dog Boarding Kennels

Individually heated kennels and well-insulated buildings provide warm, comfortable accommodation for all breeds, ages and sizes of dog. Raised sleeping benches, tiled floors and thermal 'Vet bed' blankets all facilitate the maintainance of an extremely high standard of hygiene throughout. Each kennel has its own, individual, external, covered and weatherproof run. In addition, we exercise all dogs at least twice a day, within our own two acre, secure exercise area. Attention to detail has been a priority in the design and construction of all our boarding units.

We have kennel units specifically designed for small, large and families of dogs in addition to a separate kennel unit for animals in need of convalescence or rest, bitches in whelp or with new litters and also bitches in season.

In the unfortunate event of a dog becoming ill during its stay a veterinary surgeon is on call 7 days a week. We have full isolation facilities and a veterinary examination room for this purpose. We carry comprehensive insurance cover for any veterinary expenses incurred for an illness developed whilst any animal is boarding with us.

All dogs boarded must hold a current vaccination certificate (DHPPi and Lepto) including the annual vaccionation against kennel cough. We regret without a current vaccination certificate no dog will be admitted into the kennels. The vaccination certificate will need to be produced each time the animal visits the kennels.

Kennel Kitchen

In the kennel kitchen a comprehensive range of dog food is available from various popular tinned products to complete 'all in one' meals. Veterinary diets can also be catered for along with owners' specific feeding instructions. We are also able and happy to administer medication if required.

The kennels are fully insured and are licensed by Dumfries and Galloway Council.


We use and endorse the Skinners range of pet foods.
