Superb First Class Kennel :-)

18/04/2012 by Zensolas

Furry Tails beats all kennels that we have ever used in the past. Carol is the most dedicated & passionate lover of animals and is completely devoted to the care and well being of her 'guests'. We were reluctant to kennel our two black labradors recently until we found the Furry Tails website. The videos & information from Carol were so reassuring that we instantly felt at ease. Our dogs had a fantastic stay with so much attention. We'l have no worries or hesitations about using Furry Tails again in the future. Maddie & Roxie say thank you so much Carol.


Great place for pets to stay

by Linda_Blackpool

My over-boisterous German Shepherd has stayed twice and will be staying again. He loves it at Furrytails and always gets the very best of care. It is often hard to find somewhere dogs can run free especially large boisterous dogs who are not great on the lead, However, Carol really takes the time and trouble to know your dog so they get exactly what they need. I know that the dog is happy and that means I am happy and can enjoy my holiday without worrying. Great place!

Absolutely Brilliant!

I was so nervous about leaving my German Shepherd in kennels for the 1st time but Carol from Furry Tails put me at ease. The kennels were clean and spacious, the fenced off paddock is great. All the dogs get lots of individual attention. He is a lot more social since he has come home. My dog is my pride and joy and i was so worried about leaving him but I received a couple of emails and even some photos whilst i was away. My dog really enjoyed himself and i don't think he wanted to come home. He even did some agility while he was there. I spoke to loads of kennels and Furry Tails was by far the best. Highly recommended and will definitely use again.


Happy Dogs!

by LouiseK

Our two dogs spent just short of 3 weeks at Furry Tails. They came back happy dogs. The kennel they were in was spacious, warm and very clean. They love to run off the lead and it was the first kennel they had been to were there was a safe fenced in paddock for them to be able to run and play. It was clear that Carol loves dogs, when we picked them up she had obviously got to know them well! We were very happy and now feel able to go away without worrying about them. They are booked in for september!


A home from home!

I've used Furry Tails on a number of occasions now for my beloved border terrier 'Bucky'. The kennels are clean and spacious and the dogs are well looked after. They have plenty of space to exercise in the Paddock and Carol has a genuine love for all creatures. Highly recommended!


“Fantastic place for dogs to stay”

Written on: 31/07/2011

What a great find this kennels is. My dog has stayed twice and he loves it. What a comfort knowing he is being left in capable and caring hands. He gets plenty of exercise, is well cared for and gets lots of attention and stimulation. So difficult to find a place that can offer all of that for an large, active, intelligent breed. Even when there are lots of dogs booked in, each one seems to get personal attention. I don't know how they do it, but they make you feel like yours is the only dog in the world - what a rare and wonderful touch that is!


No kennel smell when I collect him (an added bonus) and it is obvious that he loves being there so I never need to worry about him whilst I am enjoying my own holiday.


Furry Tails Kennels

by bob306

These kennels are excellent. They are the cleanest kennels I've ever seen, and they have a wonderful paddock for the dogs to exercise in. It was very reassuring to see that the staff knew the names of all the dogs staying there, and judging by their comments when we collected our dogs, they had obviously spent a lot of time with them .Our dogs came home relaxed, happy and tired from all their exercise in the paddock.


“A fantastic place to leave our dogs. Large clean...”

A fantastic place to leave our dogs. Large clean kennels and a personal touch not found at many larger commercial kennels. Our dogs had a great level of exercise and fresh air. We were totally confident in the owner and her knowledge of dogs. Their welfare was very much paramount and being able to leave four very different dogs with someone who knew what they were doing was a great relief to us! Would reccommend to anyone.
