Specification for DOG kennelling:

Feeding: High quality dog pellets served with either freshly cooked chicken or ostrich meat and plenty of gravy. We can cater for special diets as well.

Runs: Yes, huge shady exercise area equipped with balls, shoes, dummy tugs and Frisbees... we even provide human "throwers".

Kennel: Each kennel is equipped with a 'hideaway' bedroom especially for those scared of thunder and lightning. All bedrooms are fitted out with comfy bedding and off the floor beds.

All our kennels are fully walled which alleviates fence fighting and also assists in the prevention of the spread of disease.

Heated Kennels: Yes, they are available.

Grooming: Each guest is brushed prior to going home

Flea & tick control: All dogs are treated with Frontline Topspot on entry into our facility, which alleviates any possibility of tick and flea infestation.

Required vaccination: Valid rabies, standard canine vaccination and kennel cough required.

Specification for Cattery:

Cats generally take a little bit longer to settle into kennels than dogs and for the first couple of days we find they prefer to tuck themselves away and "suss out the scene" before they venture out and socialise.

Cattery: Our cattery is safe and secure with a "no mans land" whereby even in the unlikely event of a cat escaping from the cattery it will find itself in a fully enclosed area where it is still safe and secure. In our cattery cats have their own space, soft beds, private toilets as well as scratching posts.

Heated cattery: Yes, available.

Runs: Every day each cattery is open to give more active cats ability to roll on the grass, play or suntan

Feeding: We feed our feline guests a top quality diet of Iams or Royal Canin (available 24 hours a day) as well as an evening treat of Pamper, Lucky Pet or freshly cooked Hake, depending on preference. Should a cat be on a special diet we will feed this, provided that the owner supplies it.

Flea & tick control: All cats are treated with Frontline Topspot on entry into our facility, which alleviates any possibility of tick and flea infestation.

Required vaccination: Valid rabies and standard feline vaccination required.
