About our Boarding Kennel

We are all dog lovers with our own pets who we look after alongside caring for our guests. John, Rebecca and Audrey all have their own gundogs that they train and take out to work and Heather has a particular love for anything remotely related to a Staffie!

We are licensed by Bedford Borough Council and insured through NFU Mutual.


We have 20 kennels, four of which are extra large units for giant breeds, pairs of larger dogs (e.g. two Dobermans), and groups of dogs from the same family. We are hoping to build four more kennels this year.
The sleeping compartments are fully insulated and contain a sleeping bench, onto which we can place cosy bedding in the colder months, alongside heaters to keep out the chill in winter.
Dogs have access to an individual covered outer run during the day. Kennels are alarmed and secured at night.


Dogs are individually walked on our large field three times a day. For a healthy dog in fair weather, we usually walk 10 minutes before morning feeds, 5 minutes midday and 10 minutes before evening feeds. Walk times are reduced for dogs with relevant health conditions, or in wet or hot weather to prevent chills and dehydration respectively.

Health & Hygiene:

All dogs must have a current vaccination certificate to be presented in arrival. Protection against Kennel Cough is also required at least 10 days prior to their stay. We keep records of your dog's vet and would always try to use your dogs own vet if required, but our own vet is on call 24 hours a day.

We do not charge to administer medication and are always happy to meet your dog's health needs.

Boarding Kennel Prices

Our rates are:

£17.50 per day for a single dog
£29.75 per day for two dogs sharing
£42.00 per day for three dogs sharing
£52.50 per day for four dogs sharing

We charge a minimum of 1.5 days for all stays. We charge either a half or full day for drop off and pick up day, depending on drop off and pick up times.

**PLEASE NOTE: We are planning to increase our charges slightly from 6th April 2018.**

Great boarding kennels, very clean and spacious. My GSD/husky had never stayed in a kennel before so I was worried how he would be. I needn't have worried he had been fine and came home the same old happy boy. Would defiantly use Sunrise again they were extremely helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Sunrise.
