Long Term Boarding

Boarding Kennels -  Our kennels are spacious and clean and can house up to 5 small dogs or 3 to 4 larger dogs from the same family. We have a 1.5 acre paddock where the dogs are exercised off lead 5 times a day. We do not mix your dogs with any others, they have our undivided attention and are never left unsupervised during playime. 


Our cat pens are warm and cosy and our feline guests are visited several times a day to ensure they are happy and have everything they need.

Lottie cat had to stay for 3 weeks due to a house move.... Has come back to us in great condition, carol persevered with food for a normally v fussy lady & she seemed to have a genuine fondness for all the animals. Great recommendation, have booked in again for holiday next year. Thank you Furrytails

Fabulous kennels cared for my 3 dogs and my son's 2 dogs while we attended a wedding in Gretna over night because we were staying at a CL site in Kirkoswald. So clean and warm and treated the dogs as if they were their own . Can HIGHLY recommend them xx

Chester has just come back off his holidays from Furrytails. He must have had a great time cause he is not sulking with us for leaving him there. Great getting up date photos on FB whilst we were away putting our minds at rest. Chester will be back xxxx

Lovely place with lovely people. My Rottweiler spent just over 2 weeks here. Despite us being awkward and having a couple of issues regarding paperwork, the ladies were super helpful and kind. We were kept up to date with how she was doing, and when we picked her up it was clear she has been very very well cared for. I would definitely bring her back again.

We moved to the area one year ago. We have used a couple of other kennels in the area but were delighted to find Furrytails. Our two Border Collies tug at the lead to get to the kennels--they love it! They both need lots of exercise and it is great to know they are allowed to run free in the paddock about 5 times a day. The best kennels we have come across by far!!

Take my two for free runs in the paddock. They absolutely love it and get excited from a mile up the road. By far their favourite place. They are totally worn out after their run.

Such nice owners who you can tell straight away that your dog is going to be looked after properly. Each kennel is spotless and very large too. Massive high fenced paddock at the rear for safe exercising of your dog too. Thanks Furrytails for looking after our dogs.

Just collected our kittens Dexta & Fergie from a weeks holiday which they have absolutely loved... they've had a fab time and have been very well looked after, like home from home.

My little Poppy has just spent two wonderful weeks at Furrytails and has returned a very happy, healthy dog. Thank you so much for your excellent care and attention - I think she is going to miss you all! We will be back!!
