All dogs are exercised twice daily, off the lead in secure paddocks which are situated adjacent to the kennels. Should we find that your dog is not compatible with any other of our residents,  we will exercise them alone, to avoid confrontation.

All our dogs/cats will be provided with a well balanced diet. However if your pet is on a special diet or any medication please bring these along with you with your pet's, name and full instructions on them.

Everything is provided, but your pets own bedding will help them to settle in. All residents must be fully vaccinated and boosters kept up to date, please bring your vaccination card for inspection on arrival .
