Since September 2011 we have been working very hard here at Acorn to modernise all 27 of our kennels, runs and exercise areas.We have installed a brand new, fully insulated roof throughout the premises and every kennel now boasts the luxury of underfloor heating. Additionally, a perimeter fence has been erected, ensuring complete security for your dog(s) whilst in our care. Every kennel has its own outside run attached allowing the freedom to be inside or outside when they choose apart from when our cleaning routine is taking place twice a day.
Each kennel has a bed with bedding and toys provided. However, if you feel that you would like to bring items from your own home to help your dog(s) settle in, then you are more than welcome to do so. We cannot accept responsibility for any loss or damage whilst in our possession. Please note that we do not accept bones or rawhide toys as they may prove to be a choking hazard. We would also be grateful if any choke chain style collars are removed and taken home with you after you have checked your dog(s) in.
Here at Acorn we are lucky enough to be situated on 6 acres of land. Health permitting, we do insist that your dog is walked three times a day off lead within our premises (four walks during summer months). All three walks are included in the daily boarding rate. In addition to the three/four walks, you can opt to have your dog(s) taken on a one hour walk outside of our premises, but again on leads. These additional walks are charged at £10.00 per dog per hour/£15.00 for two dogs.
Exercise is an absolute must whilst boarding in kennels to alleviate boredom and stereotypical behaviour common to dogs in such situations. The health and wellbeing of your dog(s) is paramount to our ethos.
We feed twice each day as recommended by our vet on high quality dry food and / or tinned food which is included in the boarding rate. However, if your dog requires a specialised diet, or you would prefer to bring in your own food, you are more than welcome to do so.
