Highwood Boarding Kennels is a luxury kennel facility for dogs. Our professionally designed kennels set the benchmark for other kennel facilities.
We have worked closely with dog kennel manufacturer ‘Broxap’ to create the very best in boarding kennel units which far exceed the standard requirements set out by the environmental health model licence agreement for dogs.
The individual GRP composite panel kennel and runs are housed internally within our fully insulated building. This eliminates cold and draughty outdoor runs creating an environment closer to what a dog is used to at home.
Each kennel sleeping area is fully insulated and is individually heated or cooled via a thermostat to keep the temperature at a constant. We have done away with the old fashioned tiled and concrete floors and we have used a professionally designed vinyl flooring which is non slip, warm, and has antibacterial agents within it. This luxury flooring absorbs noise, is warm and comfortable to lie on again creating an ‘at home’ environment.
Exercise is very important at Highwood Kennels and is essential to reducing stress. Dogs in our care are allocated their own personal carer for the duration of their stay and are exercised off lead in our securely fenced 2 acre paddock a minimum of 2 times a day. For dogs that don’t like the cold or for rainy days we have a indoor play where dogs are free to play in supervised sessions with their carer.
Our facility also boasts a purpose built fully equipped grooming parlour and built in dog wash system
