Therapies 

Whilst holidaying at our boarding kennels, why not let your dog have a course of Reiki or canine massage; our practitioner Kay is fully qualified.

At the moment bookings have to be made in advance, but we are hopeful that we will soon have Kay on site for most of the time and she will also be able to provide laser therapy!
