Our Kennels

Luxury Kennel Boarding

We purposely limit our number of kennels so that each dog gets the maximum amount of attention, exercise and care he/she deserves, and that you, as a caring owner, would expect.

All of our residents are exercised 3 times per day off lead in either our secure exercise Field or our purposely built Agility area. A member of staff is present to interact and play with your dog.

We have a purpose-built kitchen area where we prepare the resident’s meals; we can feed once, twice or three times per day or whatever suits each dog. We will ask the owners of the dog’s likes and dislikes so that we can monitor them and make sure they are contented.

 To avoid upset tummies, we would recommend that you supply the food that your dog regularly eats. We do stock some brands of wet and dry food; however, we cannot stock all foods!

Our Kennels have been built to exacting standards. They are purpose-built, heated and secure, with cavity-wall, loft, and underfloor insulation. The number of kennels is deliberately limited so that we can provide each dog with the individual attention they deserve, and that you as a caring owner would expect.

Each kennel is individually heated. The building also has heating in 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 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.

You are welcome to bring beds/blankets/toys for your dog’s stay, please make sure bedding is easy to wash and dry.

Day Care

At work or away for the day? Your dog can stay with us and enjoy our purpose-built agility field or  a quiet stroll in our exercise field.

Secure Exercise Field

Our purpose-built secure exercise area is available to hire, there is also a building with seating, shelter and tea and coffee.

HOME BOARDING

We can offer home boarding to small breeds. However, this is limited as we often have dogs rehabilitating from surgery in the house.

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.
