About our Boarding Kennel

We are a boarding kennels and cattery on the outskirts of Rural Melbourne in South Derbyshire. We offer a safe, comfortable and loving stay for your pet/s while you are away. We are licensed by South Derbyshire District Council.

I gained a triple Distinction in the National Diploma in Animal Care level 3 in college. We have a small, dedicated team of animal lovers helping us care for the pets boarding with us - I believe a smaller team provides a calmer environment for your pet/s as there are less strangers tending to them and everyone can get to know their personality and quirks.

Short notice/last minute bookings are taken (if we have availability).


Our kennels consist of 38 kennels - singles, doubles and family sized. Dogs are boarded individually per kennel or with family members - dogs from separate families never share kennels.

Heat lamps are provided in colder months (when it is below 10 degrees) and/or on request at other times.

We can provide bedding, toys and food, but owners are welcome to bring their own to give their pet/s some home comforts. We request that pets on a medicated diet bring enough for the stay.


Dogs get exercised at least 4 times a day - 2 on lead walks and 2 off lead sessions in our spacious and secure paddock where we have an assortment of toys. Dogs go on walks and in the paddock individually or as a family - they are not mixed with other dogs.

The exercise sessions can be altered to cater for your dogs individual needs such as 4 paddock sessions or 4 walks or less if necessary.

Health & Hygiene:

Every dog must be up to date on their annual vaccinations and their vaccine card must be brought on drop off to prove this.

Our staff are capable and comfortable in administering medicines whether it's tablets or injections - we don't charge for this service.

Dogs must be healthy on arrival and we request that they are treated for fleas before coming to stay with us. If your pet becomes unwell while with us, we will take them to their vets. If this isn't possible we will take them to our local vets.

Kennel Cough vaccination must be done at least two weeks before your dog/s come to stay with us. Also, if your puppy has their first course of vaccinations, the second injection must be done at least two weeks before they come to stay with us. So, for example, if your dog comes in on the 20th of May, kennel cough and/or their primary vaccination (second injection) must be done before the 6th of May.
