Adrian and his staff like the dogs
We rarely put our dogs into kennels, mainly because I have always been convinced that they 'wouldn't like it'. However, their recent trip to Derrings has changed my opinion completely.
When we called into kennels to look around unannounced, we were greeted warmly and shown round. The spacious kennels were spotless and the inmates were clearly quite content.
When we delivered our dogs there, (with much concern on my part) they left us without a backward glance, and were very happy to go off with their new minder. I found this reassuring.
When we collected them, although the dogs were pleased to see us, they were obviously fine and had been perfectly alright while we were away. Again the kennels were spotlessly clean and tidy (at 8am), and the dogs were cheerful and unperturbed. (They also were clean and didn't smell of kennels or disinfectant).
Above all, the impression is that Adrian and his staff like the dogs; to me that is essential.
I would not hesitate in recommending Derrings Kennels to any owner who is looking for a good quality boarding kennel and peace of mind while they are away.
