Our Services

Our Kennels

Our Kennels, each with individual covered runs, are both warm and cosy in the winter with individual heat lamps, yet light and airy in the summer. Designed for maximum comfort for your pet, the layout of our kennels ensure dogs cannot make contact with each other unless, of course, you have more than one pet staying with us.

If you have more than one animal that you would like to stay at Old Station Kennels, they are welcome to share and stay together. There are also large separate secure play areas, plus lots of fields for daily walks whilst on leads.

Each of our kennels have their own covered runs with views across the fields surrounding us.
They are cleaned twice a day, waters changed and bedding washed regularly.
Warm and cosy bedding is supplied but if you wish to bring your own then you are welcome to do so.
Dogs are walked daily and we also have a paddock to give them free running exercise and play.
We feed the dogs twice a day using Skinners Field & Trial, unless instructed otherwise.  If you wish to bring your own food we will happily feed to your requirements.
Medication can be administered if required.
