Accommodation

Each dog kennel has fresh bedding or use of our mesh hammock beds  and an individual heater lamp. All of our kennels are purpose built above and beyond East Northants District Council,  licencing requirements. They have an adjoining outside run with a hatch that separates the run from the sleeping area.  This can be closed at night to keep our dogs cosy and warm.   Dogs from the same family can be housed together at the owner’s request. Background music is played to create a soothing and calming environment for all our visitors Owners are welcome to bring along a favourite toy and blanket to make their dog feel at home. At Lodge Farm Boarding Kennels, hygiene is of utmost importance and all kennels are thoroughly scrubbed (using a virucidal disinfectant). A meticulous cleaning routine is carried out every day.


Diet

collieOur prices include the provision of an individual diet, and we are happy to meet the specific requirements of you, the owner. Rest assured that your dog will get the food that he is most used to at home.   We have a choice of approximately 20 dry complete dog foods and several wet foods. If we haven’t got  the food your dog normally eats, you can choose a similar food or bring your own in, any special dietary requirements or feeding instructions can easily be arranged on request.


Exercise

Benalmadena Feb11 063We believe an exercised dog is a happy dog and all of our boarders get two daily walks around our paddock, regardless of the weather. It is bull dog 2during these regular walks that we ensure that each dog receives plenty of love and attention from the assigned member of our kennel team.  this enables us to build a strong bond with the dogs and in turn helps them to settle in with us quicker.  Our experienced and enthusiastic staff will ensure that all dogs will receive plenty of one to one attention, play and interaction, to create a stimulating environment, which is particularly important for dogs staying for a long duration of time.

We are proud that we are one of the few kennels left that still walk ALL dogs twice daily, regardless of how labour intensive that may be.  We believe in well exercised dogs being happy & healthy and that is why we also have 3 large fenced areas in our paddock for dogs to run, without the need to be on leads, and play.

Medication

dogs 003If medication needs to be administered, this will be undertaken provided the animal accepts the medication, without resistance, and that it can be administered by one of our non-veterinary qualified kennel team.  There will be a £1 surcharge per insulin injection that is administered.
