A country home in amberley is my girls favourite! Lovely sunny place with heated floors and reasonable prices.

Lol, dog kennels

Why not ask neighbors and keep dog at home. Much nicer than at noisy small kennels

SPCA boards a few, but don't advertise it much.Have been very impressed with their care.

Shadow estate in loburn is what we have used in the past for our pugs during house repairs/renos.
Carly is really good with the dogs, worth the trip out that way to shadow estate.

Alameda in Dyers Road are very good. Lovely people that run it.

Amberley Precious Pets if your dog is a small one. Lovely new kennels by their website but not suitable for my large dogs.

These guys are great. Kennels not flash to look at but are just lovely with the animals they are looking after

Muddy footprints,I was very happy and more importantly so was my big boy. First time boarded out in 9 years. Prestons rd by the primary school.

Alameda are brilliant for cats, and I know they board dogs as well. As babylak says the owners are lovely.
