Our spacious kennels each have an attached private exercise run and are large enough to accommodate multiple dogs from the same family.

Whilst staying here at Saxon Lodge each dog(s) (if boarding from the same family) will have a walk around our five acre field, and in addition to this they will be allowed a free run in our secure outdoor dog run. Included in the price as standard we supply a range of food; from biscuits, wet, raw meats and of course any treats in many popular brands. If you prefer you can bring in a pet’s own food for when they stay.

Any medications your pet needs to take during their stay will be given, as instructed (including insulin injections).

We have a plentiful supply of toys for your dog(s) to play with, either on their own or with staff. Bedding is also provided.

If you want to bring your pets bedding and/ or toys in then please do so as we want them to feel as comfortable as possible staying with us. All dog beds are heated with dog mats and the kennel block is heated throughout during the winter at no extra charge.

If there is anything about our service you wish to discuss please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to be of service. 

What we need from you:
