Due to our long serving rescue work and over 25 years caring for pets, we have had the pleasure of meeting a large range of colourful characters, and have the understanding, sensitivity and experience to provide a safe, relaxing environment and tender care for very nervous and challenging pets.
We would be very pleased to welcome you and your friend for a visit, providing them with a chance to meet us and have a good look round so that they feel more settled when they come to stay.
We have purpose built roomy, individual kennels and indoor cat pens with central heating and lighting, keeping your precious friend warm, safe and cosy. Visiting dogs are taken out in the field for a good walk twice per day, ensuring good human interaction. We pride ourselves in being able to build a relationship with each dog whilst they are boarding with us we get to know their individual characteristics, especially whilst on a walk which in turn; helps us recognise unusual behaviour and spot signs of ill health early.
For the extra energetic we can provide extra walks for an additional £5.00 per walk.
We recognise that just like us, pets have different food requirements and we ensure that all diets are catered for with the exception of raw food (due to new law requirements). If your pet is on a veterinary prescription diet we will not be able to supply this but welcome you to bring your own. If your pet is struggling to find a diet to suit, we might be able to advise on the best food for them, as we have tested just about every brand over the past decades, restoring health and vitality to the most poorly rescue dogs and cats that have sought our help.
We understand here at Danemere that pets are such a big part of the family and you cannot help but wonder how they are getting on whilst you are away. For the owners that are concerned we can provide email 'Pupdates' so that you know what they have been up to on their holiday along with photographs to help put your mind at rest.
We take short, long term or daily bookings, though we do advise you to book early for peak holiday periods to avoid disappointment.
We can provide a basic bath and blow dry (available by appointment at time of booking).
