About Us

The Kennels are run by Lynn and Stephen Hall, originally from West Yorkshire, where, for 9 years, they ran a successful home-based Pet sitting and dog walking business alongside their voluntary work for Dachshund Rescue UK.

We have clients travelling from Rotherham, Sheffield, York Leeds and beyond. At The Elms Kennels, we believe that by providing specifically designed accommodation, atmosphere and care, your dog can settle into and enjoy a luxury holiday with us.

The number of kennels is limited to eighteen, ensuring that each dog will receive the maximum amount of attention, exercise and care that they deserve and you as a caring owner expect for your dog.

The Kennels

Our Kennels have been built to exacting standards. They have cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and underfloor insulation. They are purpose-built, heated and secure.

Each kennel is individually heated. The building also has heating for the corridors, staff room and kitchen. All floors in the kennel area are quarry tiled to ensure ease of cleaning and hygienic conditions.

The dividing walls between each kennel are solid, floor to ceiling so that each dog can feel comfortable and secure. The sleeping areas have a bench which is raised 150mm above the floor with a heat lamp positioned above each bench.

The outside runs are again quarry tiled and are part of the main kennel building ensuring they stay dry whatever the weather. These runs look out onto a grassed, walled courtyard which in turn leads to our secure off-lead exercise area.

All our kennels are large enough to accommodate two dogs from the same family.

The kennels are secure and alarmed, with the proprietors or a member of staff on-site twenty-four hours a day.

We have been bringing our huskies to the Elms since 2004, our first pair before our current ones. We first brought them when we lived in Doncaster, but all our dogs have enjoyed so much love and care with Gill and Tony, that after moving to Durham we now happily travel an hour and a half to get there. We can always enjoy our holidays knowing that our dogs are safe, secure and looked after properly. We have often recommended these kennels and will continue to do so, they know dogs and care about each and every one.
