About us

Chrisvale Kennels has been established for almost 40 years. We are situated on the Lancashire moors in 6 acres of green belt land.


Christine, the current owner, has been breeding dogs for 50 years and has a wealth of knowledge about all breeds of dogs. She has also been showing her own dogs, including Rough Collies, German Shepherds, St Bernards and Belgian Shepherds for many years, collecting trophies along the way. She also has experience in judging and agility.


For the last 5 years Christine's son Sean and his wife Julie have become more actively involved in running the business. Sean's experience started at the age of 13 when he delivered his own dog's first litter of pups. He has 30 years of knowledge and care of all different animals. He has also owned his own pet shop and has had a great deal of success with breeding a large range of parrots alongside his wife Julie, who hand-fed and trained them.


Julie has been helping Christine over the last 20 years but becoming more actively involved in the last 5 years. She loves taking care of all the dogs who come to board with us, and making sure they feel safe and happy is her main priority. The kennels are now undergoing refurbishment to include a bigger outdoor play/agility area and upgrades to all kennels.
