Vaccinations

When using boarding kennels, all dogs must be fully vaccinated to include Kennel Cough. The Kennel Cough vaccination must be given more than 21 days before checking in. If your dog is sneezing, coughing, or showing any signs of illness including diarrhoea, they must NOT be checked in.

When making a booking enquiry, we ask customers to send a copy of the dogs’ vaccination card/s before the booking is secured to save any last minute problems when checking in.

Bookings

Weekends are a minimum 2-day booking. Bank holidays are a minimum 3-day booking and Easter 5 days, collection 08:00 the next working day.

All bookings must be paid for before it is confirmed and I must have seen a copy of your vaccination card. This can be sent by email, sometimes people bring them to me and view the kennels at the same time.

Experience

I have been running boarding kennels since 2002 and worked in boarding kennels as a child after leaving school. I have experience in dog rescue & dog training and have become well known in the area for kennel cleanliness and previously rescuing English Springer Spaniels.

Exercise

Your dog will experience a similar walk to being at home as we have a 1-acre grassy paddock to the rear of the house where we walk your pet either on or off lead depending on your dogs’ requirements. The length of time depends on whether they are allowed off lead and can mix with other dogs. We do not isolate dogs on walks unless specifically requested by the owner, we find that a dog having fun on a walk in strange surroundings, means they will be happy to return.

These must be the best boarding kennels anywhere! Sarah understands dogs quite literally inside out, she has that amazing ability to make them feel relaxed and almost totally unstressed, she is quite frankly a goddess when it comes to understanding our faithful four-legged friends. Phil McDonald

We have used Meg Heath Kennels now for several years, we are more than happy with the quality of service and the standard of the kennels Sarah provides. The kennels are always spotlessly clean and you can bring your own dog beds, so it is more like home for our boys. We love seeing the videos and photos that Sarah takes the time to post on her website of our dogs when they stay with her, so we know they are happy and having a good time. The large field behind the property is perfect for exercising the dogs they have lots of freedom in a very safe environment. We would highly recommend Meg Heath Kennels. Julia Wildman

Meg Heath Kennels run by Sarah are very clean and surprisingly there are no smells of dogs. This kennel is very secure and Sarah runs these kennels to a very high degree of pride, with the dogs’ well fare and Security of the dogs being a major factor in the day to day running of activities. Every kennel is spotless no broken tiles anywhere, all glass panels are in tip-top condition. The outside grass area is kept cut and is very tidy. All surrounding fencing is of good quality and in good order of repair. The main kennel area is all undercover with a couple of VIP kennels home from home. No kennels can be viewed from the road as there are high hedges on 2 sides. Sarah and her team are very experienced in handling and looking after our and your family friends while away on holiday or business. Rest assured, you can trust Sarah and her devoted team to look after your dogs as if they were at home.

Our dog came from a rescue centre and had never been in kennels. He’s a very nervous dog who also has a long-term health condition. We were very impressed with Meg Heath kennels- the owner spent time chatting to us about our dog’s needs and when we left him we felt reassured that he was in good hands. Our dog enjoyed his stay and was calm and relaxed when we collected him. We will certainly be using the kennels again in the future. Rosie G

These kennels are amazing. They are run by the owner Sarah, she really is very experienced and she certainly understands dogs. She knows exactly what is needed to help them settle if they are worried and she will go out of her way to make sure they are happy. The kennels are immaculate, very plush and the dogs there do seem to enjoy their stay. There is also a large (about an acre) safe fenced in exercise field. I can thoroughly recommend them. Wendy M
