Chrisvale Kennels are a small family run business that have been caring for your dogs for almost 40 years and we value all our customers both past and present. We strive to provide your dog with a happy and enjoyable experience when coming to stay with us and we will sit and comfort any timid dogs to make them feel secure in their stay.


Here at Chrisvale we are currently undergoing extensive refurbishments to include a luxury kennel block and a new outdoor play area with agility. Please bear with us as the works are undertaken has this will not interfere with your dogs stay.


Due to the above works we are currently down by half the number of kennels we usually accommodate so for this reason we are urging you to book your kennel as soon as you know of your holiday dates, especially in peak season as we will do doubt have to turn a number of bookings away for those who have not pre booked. A deposit of £20 will secure your booking but a minimum stay of two days will be required for all bookings.


Please ensure when booking your dog into kennels that they are fully vaccinated to include the kennel cough vaccine. Your vaccination card must be shown to us on arrival of your dogs stay. This a legal requirement and we cannot take any dog that has not had their full vaccinations. Please note that any vaccinations need to be completed at least two weeks prior to boarding has this is a live virus and we cannot admit any dog if this is given less than this time. A microchip number is also required and the local authority are checking on this.


There is a standard booking in form you must fill in when you drop off your dog. This is a licensing requirement by the local authority and it also enables us to know more about your dog and any medical conditions we need to know about to care for your dog properly. We will need to know about any medical conditions prior to booking. Also for Females who haven’t been spayed, we will need to know the date of their last season.


Food ( Step up Naturals dry and wet variety tins ) and bedding are provided for your dogs stay although if your dog is on a specific diet then please bring your own food. If you would like to bring any bedding / toys for your dog, that is fine.
