Viewing our Kennels

Showing people around our kennels is always a pleasure. Your very welcome to visit us no appointment needed! But the best time when we aren't as busy walking or feeding the dogs is 9.30am - 11am.

It would be lovely to meet your dog too in reception, So don't hesitate if you would like to bring your dog along.

Don't forget we are always here 24/7 even if you arrive out of hours to view the kennels.

The dogs in our care are our priority and their welfare is what matters to us.

*We do not operate a 24 hourly charging system.

Most Boarding establishments charge a whole day for both the day of arrival and collection, irrespective of what time you drop off or collect your dog.

We operate a half daily charging system.

When a price per day is quoted this represents a working day as follows;

1. A morning Session 8:30am - 10:30am which will represent a half daily charge.

2. An afternoon Session 4:00pm - 5:45pm (weekends 3:00pm - 4:45pm) which will represent a further half daily charge

Or any combination of the above, e.g. an afternoon & a morning, or a morning & an afternoon.

Therefore if a dog is dropped off during one morning session and collected during the morning session of the following day, this will represent a charge of a day and a half (2 mornings, 1 afternoon)

If a dog is dropped off during the morning of one day and collected during the afternoon of the next, this will represent a total charge of 2 days (2 mornings, 2 afternoons).

Cancellation Policy

We reserve the right to charge the dates and times originally booked when cancelled or adjusted within 7 days of the start date.

Please note this is only due to the high demand of limited places available.

A vets opinion!

Alastair Johnson BVMS cert MA MRCVS was the first vet to start using us for his own dogs, after showing Alastair around our kennels for half an hour and explaining how dogs like routine and continuity, he went on to tell me he was a veterinary partner at Minster vets and understood how dogs think! I didn't feel silly, much!!

One of Alastair's questions about Derrings was how many people look after how many dogs and How many walks do they have and how long? And most importantly your charges? I explained what we offered and his reply was 'Hmmm that's about right'.

I asked him what he meant? He explained that if I offered 2 hour walks 4 times a day for a cheap rate then I obviously would be stretching the truth, and said what I offered was good value and truthful.
