**Kennels are released in stages so its always worth checking availability**
We are a small 8 unit kennel and we choose to be this small so we can dedicate our time and energy to the dogs boarding with us who enjoy our attention. If i may ask you to consider this when requesting viewings as in high season it can be difficult for use to accomidate as we are generally out and about with the dogs already boarding and this may one day be your dog and where would you prefer out attention to be on them or on new business.
We are happy for anyone to visit and low/winter season is better as we drop to 4 units so there is more time for our new customers to check us out.
We currently have spaces available in our Doggy Day Care programme. This will be a Tuesday/Thursdays drop off as early as 6.30am and pick up as late as 8.30pm, for more information please contact us.

We are a small family run establishment with only 8 kennels allowing us to provide a quiet, calm and relaxing environment. Our kennels offer a personalised service we keep your dogs routine and they get plenty of out of kennel exercising from 6am-10pm. we also use the training/agility centre for rainy day exercise and offer seasonal fun such as the paddling and sand pits or just hanging with us in the garden. Our aim to make their stay stress free and the new pro thermal custom built kennels are designed to keep your dog calm with a large run to relax in and a comfy bed to sleep in.
We live on site and open our kennels no later than 6am in summer and 7am in winter and they close around 10.30pm for bed & lights out. Dogs are taken off site for morning toileting and unless the weather is too hot they are also walked on a daily basis off site. Your dogs safety is our priority especially in hot weather so they are only walked if suitable and if not they are exercised and played with in the indoor training area (22mx15m) so they do not become dehydrated or exhausted.
Exercise and Walking
Your dogs have free access the the 24mx20m astro turft area for toilet needs and play, we offer pack walking to trained and socialised dogs. Each member of staff will be responsible for no more than 4 dogs for the duration of their stay to ensure we can provide a personal service and you will be given a run-down of your dogs stay with us on your return. Only Myself or Megan book dogs in or out of boarding with us. To ensure this runs smoothly please ensure you confirm a drop off or pick up time at booking.
We will keep your dog to your feeding routine and the food provided will be whatever you request we cater for dry, wet & raw/barf food. If however you decided that you want to hand in food or if your dog is on a specified veterinary diet you are welcome to provide us with this. However, you should be aware this has no impact on the cost of your dogs boarding. Treats are provided on your approval subject to dietary requirements.
Paws & Pups are trying to take the stress out of boarding for both famlies and fur babies. with this in mind we are piloting a transport option for our boarders who are staing with us for 7 days or more.
If your dog is boarding with us for a week or more, we will seek to wash him/her at least once, free of charge, prior to collection if requested- this will be subject to your approval and only if the dog is comfortable and co-operative, as we do not want your dog to be stressed or to put our staff at risk. This service is subject to manager’s discretion.
We do not offer a grooming service but we would be happy to transport your dog to your preferred grooming service or arrange this on your behalf, subject to availability of appointments.

Why we chose Pro-Thermo Kennels.
Paws and Pups boarding facilities make use of the state-of-the-art ‘Pro-Thermo’ modular insulated kennels designed and built by a Crufts Judge Stephen Cox owner of Premier Animal Housing. These 21st century kennel facilities are strong and hygienic animal boarding system, featuring unique wall and roof systems which retain warmth to keep your dog cosy in the winter while minimising heat transfer to keep dogs cool during the summer months. Our eco-friendly kennels, constructed from reconstituted sustainable materials, provide a safe and comfortable home for your doggie companion.
Carefully positioned for your dogs comfort and safety
We care about how your animal reacts to noise and disruption and for us a happy dog makes for smoother boarding. Our runs are facing away from the central area so as not to disturb your dog as it watches people or dogs move around the area. Each run is sectioned off with solid panels to ensure dogs cannot reach each other so there is no chance of any accidents. The sleeping area is fully enclosed to ensure they feel secure and calm and heating is available if required. We know your dogs will miss you, however, we aim to keep them happy and occupied until you return to take them home.
