Dogs are housed in an interior kennel block which is heated and air-conditioned and includes radio, T.V., C.C.T.V and security alarms. We also have a fully equipped hospital and isolation facilty available.


The dogs are walked each day and also have the use of large exercise runs attached to the kennel block. 1 acre secure play area at rear of kennels.
