The kennels and cattery were established in the early 1960s by the previous owner who, in their own right, had built and refined the kennelling process. On taking over in 1994 it gave me the opportunity to implement many of my own ideas as well as the more modern approach to kennelling.

We proudly boast four types of kennelling for our canine companions, namely Standard and Luxury kennels, Cabanas and Suites. In winter we offer different heating options. The standard, luxury and heated kennels are all designed in the same manner, with one third indoors and two thirds outdoors, allowing the dogs to move out of their sleeping area to do the necessaries at night.

DOG KENNEL

Accommodation Options:

LUXURY:
These units are climate controlled. We have music playing throughout the day which has a calming effect on our pampered pooches. The inside of the kennels have rubber matting to prevent slipping and assist with insulation. These kennels are also washed by hand twice daily.

HEATED:
An Infra-red lamp hangs over the sleeping area offers a direct heat for the dogs and allows them to freely regulate their own temperature by moving under or away from the lamp.

SUITES:
These units are designed for the smaller canines as well as the golden oldies. There is rubber matting in the sleeping area, a cemented stoep and a small lawn, offering the beloved canines free access to come and go. These can be heated with an infra-red lamp if requested. The walls and surrounding fencing are 1.2m high therefore not suited to the larger excitable puppies.

CABANA:
These larger units with their own private fenced in lawn access. There are 8 brick units for the more robust pups and 8 wooden cabanas for the less chewy doggies. These come equipped with windows, a stable door as well as their own patio for the canines to lie on and survey their surroundings.

OUR FACILITIES:

We boast 16 large grassy exercise runs into which the dogs get taken out two to three times daily. This gives us the opportunity to play with the dogs and get to know them on a more personal level. Often the older quieter visitors prefer to have a lie in the sun at which point we offer a tummy tickling service or a relaxing ear rub. In addition, we also have splash pools on request for the swimmers amongst us!  These pools are washed out and refilled daily, so that the dogs can enjoy a playful romp in fresh cool water, or just have a relaxing soak after an intense ball game.

DAILY ROUTINES:

Our team is trained to do visual and physical assessments of the dogs during the handling processes. This provides the opportunity to pick up on any underlying conditions and take the correct steps timeously.

Twice daily the kennels are washed out, water replaced, bedding cleaned and beds made. Kennels are disinfected after every visit.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS:

Our menu consists of a premium vet recommended dry food as well as a boiled minced chicken with rice and veg for the fussier pallet. You are most welcome to provide your own cuisine.

CATTERY

Our cattery is removed from the dog kennels, thereby giving the kitties the peace and quiet they so deserve and appreciate. Our Cattery is set in an old stone building with lots of trees. Selected runs have trees growing in them into which the kitties can clamber and view their surroundings. All the runs have tree stumps for some claw sharpening therapy.

The runs have a sheltered portion into which the kitty’s bedding is placed away from the elements. Our kitties are spoilt for choice with Luxury and Standard unit options. The luxury units are larger, and have a kitty door separating the sleeping area from the outside run, creating a cosier environment within. These units are also heated with an infra-red lamp on request as well as soft artificial turf for your kitty’s delicate paws.

The cattery is cleaned and beds made twice daily. We offer a premium dry food, feel free to supply your felines own cuisine should you prefer. Their favourite toys and treats are welcomed.

OTHER SERVICES

VETERINARY SERVICES

We have a 24 hour veterinary service at our disposal a mere five minutes away and a vet visiting us at least once a week.

All pets brought to the kennels have to have been vaccinated during the previous twelve months with a Multi vaccine, Rabies vaccine and a Kennel Cough vaccine (dogs) or a snuffles vaccine (cats).

Please ensure that your pet has been treated for ticks and fleas prior to check in. Proof thereof must be supplied – alternatively it will be done for you at an additional cost.

It is recommended that all pets be de-wormed at least every six months. We are able to assist in this regard.
