Our kennels have been designed by a leading expert in pet care to create minimum stress and maximum contentment for dogs staying with us. Each kennel is 7 ft by 15 ft (213cm by 457 cm) in total space, divided into a sleep and exercise area with areas of privacy so that they can hide away if they want to. The sleep areas have underfloor heating and the exercise runs are fully covered.
The unique design of our kennel allows dogs to access their exercise area both day and night. Bars have been kept to a minimum, with full height block work, decorated in bright colours with a specially designed glass door which opens onto a large, bright central corridor allowing both the dogs to see us and each other but also for us to keep a close eye on them too.
We have 2 very large buildings that each hold only 20 kennels, so our staff to guest ratio is very high.
The dogs are exercised daily on our 57 acres of stunning farmland and their time with us will be more of a holiday for them than time locked up and away from home. All dogs are taken individually to a grassy paddock for 15 minutes play before breakfast and again at bedtime. Our guests also enjoy a morning and afternoon farm walk in all weathers on a long lead which gives them an opportunity to explore the hedgerows. These walks enable us to bond with your pet and we feel they are an essential part of their daily routine.
Our high staff to dog ratio ensures that all dogs get adequate exercise and company throughout their stay.
Special care and attention is provided for vulnerable dogs such as puppies, elderly dogs, disabled dogs, dogs on medication, nervous or fearful dogs or dogs with a high activity level. These dogs will receive special care and will have extra time allocated to them to ensure that all their needs are met. We will fill in a comprehensive Medication Form and take note of any other concerns you may have, to ensure we are fully aware of your dog’s individual needs. Thereby making your dog’s stay at Park Kennels, a happy one.
