About our Home Boarding

Hello my name is Anne,and I work with my daughter Jemma O’Brien , who lives next door We can’t remember when we didn’t have a dog in the house we now have Alfie a jack Russell who is very much part of the family and much loved ,if not a little spoilt! .We felt we would like to have a business that allows us to spend time doing what we enjoy as well as being with Alfie .especially as we now have such a big gardens and a paddock area for the dogs to run in .I have recently completed a Pet First Aid Course ,and we are now licensed for home Boarding ,by BANES , N.o 18/02142/Animal and we have also been inspected by a vet and approved for home boarding.we are fully insured by Pet Plan Sanctuary.We will do our very best to make sure your dog is both well cared for and happy during its stay with us.


We have Two small cottages , but plenty of room for a few canine friends ,in the sitting room,kitchen,and utility room, in n.o1 and 3 in n.o 2 , Dogs from different families will be separated during the night in the houses to avoid disagreements unless we are 100% sure they get along , .and we have permission from owners but they all have a cosy spot to sleep in wherever they choose to stay for the night , but if you permit and they ALL get along with each other they will all be together during the day/evening to have fun in our large secure gardens/paddock area and maybe off premises walks and then some cuddles by the fire .before bed time. your dog is supervised at all times so not left on its own during its stay with us.Please arrange a visit ,or .visit our website www.tenacrecc.com.for. more details.We have some places for Boarding and Day care too! Contact us to see if we have what you are looking for .


We have a large fenced gardens so they can have as much fresh air as they want and relieve themselves when they need to ,or just rest in the sun ,also we have a secure paddock area where if you allow ,dogs can have a good run or game. Dogs will have plenty of exercise,this may include an off of the premises walk if they are suitably lead trained in the local feilds/parks /footpaths etc , but they usually have much much longer -We often lose track of time when we're having fun !extendible leads will be used,off of premises at all times dogs are allowed off lead only in the gardens and paddock area, as long as you agree .

Health & Hygiene:

We ONLY accept dogs with fully updated vaccinations (minimum of 2weeks before arrival ) ,these include Distemper/Hepatitus/Parvovirus and flea & worm treatments are used ,Kennel cough is not required by us but recommended, owners who do not give kennel cough to their dog ,come at their own risk ,and we are not responsible for the dogs contracting it during their stay Evidence of vaccination must be shown before we can accept a dog for Day care or Boarding,certificates must remain with us during any stay , Sorry but No Evidence / certificate .No admittance . If dogs become ill during their stay a vet will be consulted and you will be asked to arrange for the dog to be collected , We are registered with Rosemary lodge Vet hospital for 24hr cover and they will be called /visited if we feel the dog needs urgent care.We are unable to accept dogs with COMPLEX medical needs that we have no training in, the administration of any medication is entirely at the owners risk. (Detailed instructions would be required ) .The owner will be liable for all and any vet fees due during the dogs stay.All bedding and equipment is washed /disinfected after each dogs stay and as needed during their stay.or if you prefer you can bring their own .We have a settling in period /visits before their stay on arrival we may separate dogs until we are happy they will get along we take time introducing the dogs to one another,some may take longer than others to make friends but usually meeting outside in the garden or paddock works well .Dogs can be cared for separately temporarily if a longer introduction is needed. Or during their whole stay if required ,so it wouldn't be an issue if your dog wants their own space during rest times..,but all dogs must be able to be walked with others. ,and not show any undue agression towards other dogs or people Also ,as our cottage is small we can only accept small to medium dogs . .ALL MALE dogs MUST be neutered if over 9mths.

Betty our 14 month cockapoo loves staying with Jemma at Ten Acre Canine cottages We are so lucky to have found such a great Dog Sitter

Our puppy has been attending day care at Ten Acre for the past year. We have found Ten Acre to be a wonderful place for Tilly to be. Anne and her daughter clearly love dogs and the care and attention that Tilly received was the best, she was always excited to be there. I would highly recommend Ten Acre.
