I live in Oxford but left our 2 huskies and Malamute here for the night of our daughter's wedding. Very reasonably priced. The staff (family run) were very pleasant and friendly. Easy to tell they love animals. All 3 stayed in the same kennel, which they would prefer and had a great run out the back. Charlotte told us they walked them, though just to let them run on the enclosure out the back would have sufficed. Yes very pleased and will definitely come again if we have to. Thanks for everything.

I boarded my dog for 2 weeks through the summer last year. I found the service excellent, lovely friendly staff and lovely facilities. I loved the fact that my dog got 2 walks per day in a large paddock. Would highly recommend to anyone.
