Boarding Kennel Facilities & Prices
Tutehill Boarding Kennels & Cattery are able to offer their dog kennel services across Cumbria, including towns such as:
Workington Dog Kennels | Whitehaven Dog Kennels | Cockermouth Dog Kennels | Maryport Dog Kennels | Egremont Dog Kennels | Cumbria Dog Kennels
The Kennels are set in 20 acres of beautiful Cumbrian Countryside with excellent grounds, where your pets are walked a minimum of 3 times per day whilst on holiday with us.
Our kennels are second to none, all the kennels are heated with infrared heat lamps or central heating and when it gets warm we use fans to keep the dogs cool. We also have background music on during the day and treats at bedtime. We offer large capacity kennels to suit all sizes of dogs, with outside runs, which are covered or quiet kennels with outside runs for young, old, nervous or quiet dogs.
We have secure enclosures, Play Parks, where your dog can be individually let off the lead for a good run or to play with a ball each day too.
This is an excellent facility, especially for any younger dogs that come to stay with us who enables them to let off steam and build up their confidence and bond with the staff.
We have hand sanitising machines on the entrances to the Reception and all our kennel blocks and feed room. We also use Disinfectant mats so as to stop any cross contamination. All customers entering our kennels are asked to use them both on arriving and departing.
As you know we have the Copeland strays now and these are kept in completely separate kennel blocks to our boarding Guests. We have a very high standard of hygiene facilities in place to prevent cross contamination. The stray dogs are however given the same standard of care as our Boarding guests and are walked in a separate area a minimum of 3 times per day.
Tutehill Boarding Kennels & Cattery are able to offer their cattery services across Cumbria, including towns such as:
Workington Cattery | Whitehaven Cattery | Cockermouth Cattery | Maryport Cattery | Egremont Cattery
For our Feline friends we offer a very large, warm secure environment with infrared heat lamps and heat pads.
We have sneeze barriers in all of our cat pens as well as scratching branches and posts.
We try to make your cats stay as comfortable and homelike as possible and have an enjoyable relaxing holiday in a peaceful environment with one to one care from our staff.
Our aim is to make your pets stay a Happy Holiday and our professional, loyal caring team are on hand to answer any questions, as we know how important your pet’s welfare is when it comes to being apart from each other.
We also have access to a vet 24 hours per day and would not hesitate to seek medical advice if we think it’s necessary. Your pet’s welfare is of the utmost importance to us.
All Dogs and Cats must be fully vaccinated. We also require the KENNEL COUGH vaccination for Dogs. This vaccine is by Intervet and called NOBIVAC KC or BRONCHI-SHIELD. It is a intranasal spray, which gives protection for a year and is fully effective 72 hours after and is not in with the annual booster. If your Dog has not had the kennel cough vaccine before it must be done a minimum of 2 weeks prior to arrival into the kennels,this needs to be a full 14 days in total, however if done annually the minimum time period does not apply. Your vet will be able to advise you on these vaccinations.
Your Vaccination Certificate must be shown on arrival.
Please note failure to do so could result in us turning your animal away.
Please discuss medical conditions at the time of booking and bring in any prescribed medication. Prescription medication can only be administered by a Senior Staff member and sometimes this has to be done outside of our normal working hours, therefore a charge will be made for administering all prescription medication.
We would ask if your pet has behavioural problems, you let us know - before your pet shows us!
We are able to offer many different types of food, which keeps most of the dogs and cats happy.
However we cannot stock all the vast range but we can feed personal diets if the food is supplied. Also timing and number of feeds often varies so if you can let us know on arrival we can carry out your requests. Please note we have a range of cereals and milk available. We also offer scrambled eggs and toast and butter for breakfast too at no extra cost. We have Pasta, chicken and tuna for both the dogs and the cats. We also use cheese and Ham if we struggle giving medication.
We have a very strict hygiene policy in our feed room. All our feeds are stored away at all time in appropriate containers or in the fridge. We have fridge and freezer facilities to accommodate those dogs on special or raw diets.
All new dogs regardless of breed are offered a short stay with us prior to boarding; This is only available on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday morning form 9.30am-11.30 am. Places are limited during our busy periods so to avoid dissapointment you MUST pre-book. There is no charge for this.
We have found this very rewarding for the dogs so that when they come in they have already started to bond with us. Also you have peace of mind about leaving a cherished member of the family in what would otherwise be a strange environment.
We do provide all the Pets in our care with bedding, however you are welcome to bring your own bring anything too good and do not wash it before you come so it still has your scent from home on it. This just helps them settle quicker. Toys and treats for your Pet can be brought in too, we will label the treats and make sure they are given to your get regularly, we do have lots of treats and dentastix available should you not wish to bring your own. We do not charge for these.
Visitors are welcome to look round our kennels, we have open house policy and hopefully Sharon and Joe, the owners will be on hand to show you in person and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
