Our Facilities & Personnel
Cottage Kennels are a fully licensed & insured premises, established in 1996. Our facilities are set within a picturesque, former Victorian walled garden on three sides as well as being securely fenced & gated on the east side. The Kennels themselves open onto a very large paddock area, allowing your dog to enjoy individual time off the lead in a safe environment, at least three times a day. Each Kennel is individually heated & has its own covered run with voluntary access. Upon an animal's departure from our care, each kennel is thoroughly steam cleaned & disinfected to maintain hygiene & comfort for your pet. We can cater for all breeds of dog, big or small, old or young!

A message from Cottage Kennels founder & owner, Douglas Winton.
Dear fellow dog owner, Being an experienced gun-dog handler, I fully understand the concern when entrusting your pet or working dog to a boarding kennel. A great amount of care has been taken in the design & building of Cottage Kennels to ensure that the facilities provided, primarily have the dog's comfort & needs in mind. Whilst your dog is in my care, I can guarantee that it will be fed the diet specified by you as well as, if necessary, any medication being continued. Your dog will be regularly exercised, kept safe, warm & of course, secure. Working dogs, having had years of training & time invested in them, can be ruined in a matter of weeks. I can further guarantee that you dog will be handled & exercised to your specific instructions & will be returned responding to the same commands with no (additional) bad habits! If you wish to board your dog with us, or have any further questions, then please ring or visit us to inspect the facilities. Thanks for visiting our new website & considering Cottage Kennels. D.W. Winton.
