Only boarding Kennel I trust to leave my dog, super friendly staff that love what they do. My dog walks in by herself to the kennel and the kennels are always pristine clean.

Myself and my girlfriend rehomed Buddy one week ago and we are very impressed with our new dog (Buddy, Shar Pei) as well as the overall experience. Shaun was Buddy's assigned walker and his primary carer during his time at the home. As soon as I met him, I could see he was very passionate about rehoming Buddy and despite us already having a breed of dog quite different in size to Buddy, he put in maximum effort to socialise the dogs. Taking Buddy long walks to tire him before meeting our other dog and doing everything possible to help them get along paid off as they took to each other surprisingly well. Shaun was always cautious and careful about Buddy and took time to ensure we were a good match. Something I'd say to anybody visiting the centre in the hopes of a new dog, please don't assume that if a dog is a little boisterous, mouthy or loud at the home, that they won't calm down. I visited with my friend on one visit who thought Buddy was too much for Maggie (our french bulldog) and I have taken great pleasure in proving to him how calm and respectful Buddy is around the home. I am absolutely shocked at how quickly Buddy settled and made his home is own. He also showed manners and obeyed commands immediately which is only a testament to the efforts of Shaun and the rest of the kennel team who were fantastic with him. He definitely has an underlying discipline which came into play as soon as he entered our home. We were also given lots of information from Shaun about where to go next such as training classes, being firm and were also advised to be very careful about Buddy off the lead. With that, we have been training him on his recall and I'm sure Shaun will be pleased that in a safe fielded area we have managed to get Buddy recalling completely within one week. I hope the team stays the way it is for a long time as I am already telling anyone who is looking for a new dog or cat how awesome the team is. There is still a lot of time for things to play out, however, the first week has been such a breeze and we're very happy with our new dog. Thanks so much!!

These people are amazing. Being an animal lover all my life I'm very picky about who cares for my pets when they are poorly. I drive past 4 other vets closer to my home in order to take my pets here. They are all including reception staff, to the nurses, to the vets, so helpful, and when things are taking a turn for the worse they have great compassion and skill at helping one come to the right decisions for you and your pet. I wish they could treat humans as I'd be on their books immediately! Lol

This is the best and the only vet surgeries for great care and service. The nurses are the most kindest and caring ever.The vets are very helpful and professional The online booking service is a great idea so easy and straight forward. Thank you so much, keep up the good work.

The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
