My dogs can be aggressive to other dogs.

If you are not comfortable with your dog sharing they can have their own unit and be exercised on their own.

If your dog requires single dog accommodation, please state this at the time of booking as we have limited  single dog accommodation. Single dog rates will apply.

I often hear of dogs contracting canine cough whilst holidaying.

Yes your dog is vaccinated against Canine Cough (Kennel Cough) but unfortunately this does not give total immunity to your dog.

Just as the human flu vaccine only reduces the severity of the symptoms so to with Canine Cough vaccine.

Many people believe Canine cough can only be found in kennels (Not true). It is an air borne virus that is spread via contact and be found anywhere where dogs congregate ie. dog parks, dog shows, groomers, veterinary clinics..

To reduce the risk we ensure that ALL dogs if due are vaccinated at least 2 weeks prior to their check in date.  We encourage you not to let your yearly vaccines expire.
