Welcome to Ivy Kennels & Cattery
A boarding kennels can be a rather different environment to what most family dogs are used to. The daily routine is different, there is the presence of other dogs and unfamiliar people and the typically higher activity level. Most dogs, being generally quite sociable animals, take to the environment well and have a really good time. A few can find it a bit intimidating or stressful.
At Ivy Boarding Kennels, minimising stress and promoting positive doggy experiences is central to everything we do. How we structure enrichment activities for the dogs and how we interact with them and how we train our humans is key to a happy stay with us.
We cannot provide an environment the same as it is at home but we can ensure a dependable routine, lots of positive human contact, physical and mental stimulation, activities to break up the day, security and peaceful times to get some good sleep. We offer all breeds of dog a high standard of friendly, knowledgeable care in clean, modern, well maintained accommodation. We have good quality house dry and wet dog food and are also happy to use food provided from home. We can also manage special diets and medications, including insulin for diabetics.
