About our Boarding Kennel

Barkingham Pet Palace - Dog Boarding kennels
A Luxury alternative to conventional boarding kennels.

We are so proud of our Boarding Kennel Licence and overwhelmed by the comments by the Shropshire Council Licensing Inspection team - See what you think.

Boarding Licence no 18/04432/AIAL 4 stars award.
Shropshire Council Inspection comments/Advice in full-

This is a brand new, purpose-built facility in a ‘luxury hotel’ style with large themed rooms, all of which have multiple resting areas, hiding areas and access to an outdoor secure run.

The level of environmental enrichment provided both inside and outside the kennels is excellent. So far, the licence holders have invested in a variety of toys, puzzle feeders and lick mats for use in the kennels. Outside, they benefit from a large property which has its own land for secure outdoor play and access to several footpaths and walking routes off the premises. The licence holders have developed a sensory garden, have a variety of other animals for dogs to experience and plan to develop other play areas, such as an obstacle garden. A great deal of thought and attention had gone into the development of this premises and providing dogs with a high standard of environmental enrichment.

The licence holders are extremely well qualified and have ensured that their experience and knowledge is suitable and appropriate for the service they are offering, and that they keep this up to date. The system from record keeping is very good and attempts to gain as much information as possible about dogs before accepting them as boarders to ensure that an excellent standard of care is provided.

Overall, from inspection of the premises, review of the submitted written documents and discussion with the licence holders it is clear that an exemplary level of attention to detail and care has gone into developing this premises and its operating systems. The licence holders have a clear passion for animals which will allow them to offer an excellent boarding service.

This is a five-star premises which is only prevented from holding that standard of licence by the fact it is a new business and doesn’t hold the required years of compliance history.

We believe exercise is an essential and a beneficial bond forming part of our guests holiday;
We feel your pets should have enjoyable exercise, at their own pace tailored to meet their needs and abilities.

We provide ample facilities for puppies who love new situations, our young energetic guests enjoy the agility playgound and can also take us further afield as well as our much loved elderly guests who just want a quiet saunter through the sensory garden at their own pace with a few sit-down points along the way.
We also use recall line to ensure all dogs get the exercise they need.
Your pets don't just have a 30 minute walk around the block with us.

Please also rest assured your pets’ safety is of paramount importance to us, we never walk or exercise dogs from different families together.
You never need to worry about how many other dogs are out with your pet or that your pet is competing for attention during their exercise sessions.
You dog does not have to keep up with the pack or engage in any rough and tumble or odd disagreement, which can/does happen within larger groups.
More importantly there is absolutely no rushed toilet stop either.

We have exclusive private grounds for your pet to enjoy, lots of space to walk around, a very large agility playground and lots of safe space to have off lead fun just like in your garden.
We also add new experiences for your pet to meet under supervision to help with their socialization skills.

Our Sensory Garden is filled with beautiful smells, textures and sounds to engage all of your pets senses.
The sensory garden is just like heaven for all Dogs love nothing more that having a good sniff around.
These are some of the scented plants which have a beneficial effect that your pet will enjoy in our Sensory Garden this summer:

Clary sage: good for highly strung animals and those with hormonal imbalance

Lavender: helps to reduce anxiety and other nervous conditions

Marigolds: dogs experiencing grief or emotional distress will often sniff out this plant

Mint: good for cooling properties and will often be selected by dogs who suffer from skin irritations

Thyme: chosen by animals with bacterial infections, skin irritations and diarrhoea

Wooden wind chimes provide soothing and relaxing sounds for the dogs to listen to, non-invasive and natural noises such as these have a calming effect making the dog feel at ease.

We also include puzzle toys and chews, music, aroma therapy and massage.

Barkingham Pet Palace convienently situated in the stunning Shropshire countryside, nestling within our own private grounds with exclusive walking opportunities, with ample access to woodlands, miles of footpaths and of course the very beautiful Nescliffe Hill.......
A truly countryside retreat where your pets will have all the fun and exercise they want.

Health & Hygiene:

Barkingham Pet Palace - Where your pets health is our priority ;

We really understand that some dogs can find conventional boarding kennels very stressful, they may not tolerate home boarding or doggy day care, many dogs don't accept sharing their attention or finding their position in the pecking order within a large pack of maybe bigger or more dominant dogs.
Pet sitting or several home visits through the day may also not be quite what you're specifically looking for.

If you need any overnight boarding facilities while you’re on holiday, on a business trip or in hospital these services can only be provided by boarding facilities that are fully Licensed by your local Council.
Home boarding and boarding kennels both come under the new Oct 2018 Gov regulations.
Please keep your pets safe.

You've seen the adverts with lots of dogs running around, however it's all too easy to miss the tell tale signs of a stressed dog within a boisterous group running around.

If you've paid for your dog to have a walk do you really want them share their walk with lots of other dogs.
Taking lots of dogs for a walk can make it very difficult to spot health issues like specks of blood as a dog urinates.

Barkingham Pet Palace - We are a luxury alternative to converntional boarding kennels !!!
Arrange to visit with your pet, see just how much fun your dog can have with us.
We are here to answer any questions you may have and put your mind at rest.
We want you to be totally happy about leaving you best friends in our care for their next vacation!!!
