Our Golden Retriever is a troubled and anxious rescue dog and the Dog House was recommended to us as a quieter and very dog friendly boarding kennel. We first took Angus on a trial visit nearly three years ago and staff worked hard to make him feel settled and secure - their care and perseverance on that first visit has meant trouble free breaks for us, and Angus, ever since. I can't recommend the Dog House highly enough - it's well worth the 70 mile round trip for our peace of mind while we're away and a happy, stress free dog to come home to!
Gyp has stayed in the Doghouse Kennels many times now, sometimes for over a month. He always greets the staff happily and leaves me without a backward glance. The Doghouse staff make an effort to cater for the needs of individual dogs. Gyp likes to be outside and he is given plenty of opportunity to use the outdoor play area. On one visit Gyp had recently had an operation and I was so pleased that Katherine was prepared to give him a special diet while he recovered. I would happily recommend The Doghouse to any dog owner.

Our dog, a Border Collie called Gem spends about 25 days a year at the Dog House while we are on holiday. It is so nice to see her leap out of the car and go excitedly off with Dog House Staff. Our holidays are so much the better for knowing that she enjoys them too, and, like us, comes home happy and relaxed.

We have always found Dog House an excellent kennel for our much-loved family pet. A caring,
friendly and professional service is always given. We have total confidence that our dog will be really
well looked after while we're away. We would definitely recommend Dog House!

We cannot praise Katherine and her wonderful family enough for providing Ruby with such happy holidays
at Dog House.
She has been a visitor since she was a puppy and can't wait to greet Katherine every time she returns.
The whole family provides secure, loving and individual care to all their charges and we have no worries whatsoever
in leaving Ruby in their capable hands.

A great big thank you to you all for the wonderful care you take of our two lively Westies Fred and
Barney. As you know we have had a few bad experiences with kennels and finding you was a huge
relief. Even though it is a half hour journey to get to you it is well worth it. (Not least for
the spectacular views along the way!)
You have taken into account all my concerns and always make me feel very happy about leaving the boys!
You and your family are great. See you at the end of the month for the boys' big holiday.
