We have been using Meg Heath Kennels since 2011. It is clear from our visits, and the excitement our dog shows when she is dropped off, that Sarah is a very caring custodian. The facilities are clean and spacious, the dogs are well looked after and regularly given thorough and fun exercise, and her attention to detail is such that we are very happy to send our pet to Meg Heath for several stays a year. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
We have been taking our dogs to Sarah for over 4 years now, and trust her completely with their care. One of our dogs is very nervous of people, and Sarah has always dealt with this very well. The kennels are always spotless, and Sarah runs everything very efficiently, but always with the dog’s interests at heart. Bernice S – June 2017
We feel confident when leaving our dog with Sarah as its very clear how much she loves dogs. The kennels is not overpopulated so we know that our boy gets to spend quality time outside with Sarah and the other dogs in the acre of secure land at the back. Sarah is always flexible when we need to change bookings etc and is always accommodating. Meg Heath is strict on vaccination requirements which is a good thing. I wouldn’t want to take my dog anywhere else, I have total confidence in Sarah to know he is well looked after. Michelle C – June 2017
A big thank you to Sarah for looking after our dog. She gets spoilt rotten and comes back happy & healthy. We’ve used the kennels and home boarding and are very happy with both. The communication from Sarah is always quick, from the initial booking right through to photos whilst we’re away. We wouldn’t leave her with anyone else. She’s my dog’s second mummy.
Thanks, The Dodges – June 2017
To be honest, I’m sooooo happy I found Meg Heath Kennels. I know Brownie is sorted and taken care of. He is not afraid or scared when I drop him off. I think it’s because he knows he is in a good and safe place.
I don’t feel bad, when I go on holiday as I did with the 1st kennel place I found when I first moved out here. (Don’t get me wrong I miss Brownie ) but I’m at ease every time I drop him off.
The place is big, not that a chihuahua needs lots of room and the people (aka Sarah) is amazing! She knows her stuff and you can tell she enjoys what she does and that’s really important especially when you are leaving your fur child in the care of someone else.
Anytime someone asks for a recommendation, I point them in the right direction. Karla V May 2017
I have been using Meg Heath Kennels since I moved to the area in 2011. My Mad Border Collie, Minnie loves going there and loves Sarah and her brood of dogs.
In fact, at times I think she would rather stay there than come home!! The kennels always look clean, the dogs are well walked and well looked after.
Sarah runs a professional service and Minnie wouldn’t go anywhere else. Linda S May 2017

First Impressions: Modern and securely fenced environment in a rural location where security is given paramount consideration. The kennels are individually heated to ensure the best comfort and there is a separate large outdoor run and play area where they can be exercised on or off the lead. Sarah will come across as highly professional and will give you the confidence that your dogs will be sensitively and properly cared for. You feel your dogs are in safe hands and will be happy and content with Sarah who is knowledgeable, experienced and a genuine animal lover who will put your dog at ease straight away.
Cleanliness of kennels: The kennels are clean and generously sized and lack that ‘kennel smell’ that you often associate with other less maintained establishments. Sarah takes her responsibilities extremely seriously by ensuring that all animals boarded fully comply with the necessary health standards and is rigorous in their application.
Dogs demeanour upon leaving kennels: Our dogs love the kennels as they are pleased to see Sarah on arrival and are happy to go straight to their kennel.
On picking up our dogs on the first time we were surprised to find how happy they were with their tails wagging continuously at Sarah which is evidence of the time Sarah must have spent with them.
Previously we had a poor experience of the last kennel we used as our dogs often had that kennel smell and had lost their ‘barks’, no doubt from their constant barking from a likely lack of attention. However, when collecting our dogs from Sarah they were in fantastic condition and obviously very happy and kept running back towards the kennels when trying to get them in my car!!
Have already booked them in for several more stays this year
Overall satisfaction: There is no doubt Sarah provides the highest standards of dog care which I would rate as exceptional. You, and more importantly, your dogs are given the utmost care and consideration. The premises are of the highest standard and cleanliness and hygiene are superb. Every need is provided for with understanding and friendliness to make your dog’s stay a positive experience.
We are now assured that we can go away at any time without concern and as such would very highly recommend Meg Heath Kennels. – April 2017

First Impressions: As a relatively small kennel, you feel as if you are leaving your dog at a friends house rather than a kennel. When we arrive, Lester cannot wait to get inside to see Sarah and all his mates!
Cleanliness of kennels: The kennels are always spotless. I have never seen anything to concern me at all.
Dogs demeanour upon leaving kennels: Lester is always happy when he comes out on our arrival; tail wagging and lots of play bows! He is always tired when he gets home and sleeps for hours!
Overall satisfaction: We only use Meg Heath kennels for Lester, there is simply nowhere better. Lester loves it and, to be honest, we value his opinion!
Any other comments: I have never known anyone who cares more about dogs than Sarah, and you can see the love and trust that the dogs have for her in return.

First Impressions: The kennels are always clean and tidy and the dogs are happy, the first impression that really counts for me is Ollies. whenever I drop him off he is keen to go through the gate and he’s always pleased to see Sarah.
Cleanliness of kennels: Whenever I drop Ollie off or pick him up, all the kennels are clean and tidy and I am always made welcome to walk up through the kennels.
Dogs demeanour upon leaving kennels: On every occasion, Ollie has left the kennels happy and bright looking good, well-groomed and healthy.
Overall satisfaction: Never had anything but the best of service from Sarah and Meg Heath Kennels, whether the stays have been a short overnight or longer stay. if you want peace of mind while you’re away and a happy healthy dog when you get back then leave your dog with Sarah.
