The Boarding Kennels
Berwick Boarding Kennels LTD is fully licensed and routine inspected by the Carmarthenshire County Council, Animal Health Dept and you can see our license on display at the kennels. We are also Insured by one of the most trusted and largest kennel insurance companies in the UK, Cliverton Insurance.
The cleaning products that we use are from a company called GHS Direct and the product is called Vira-Care approved by DEFRA and government certified to tackle the coronavirus.
We use 250w Infra red heat lamps placed above all individual kennels to keep our boarders nice and toasty during their stay at Berwick Boarding Kennels LTD.
The boarding kennels are monitored 24 hours a day using a CCTV system and all staff have mobile access. There is also family onsite all day every day, however outside of business hours we do not take in or release dogs out of the set hours for security reasons. Access outside of these hours is only for anyone with an appointment at Berwicks Barking Beauties Grooming.
How the kennels operate
On arrival and collection of your booked date and times, we ask that you and your dogs remain in your vehicle and you will be greeted by a member of staff as soon as they are available.
The member of staff will take any items, such as food, treats and toys that you wish to bring with you and then take your dog for a short walk while you exit the property. This is the best strategy as the dogs settle better not seeing you leaving the grounds.
The dogs are all allocated their own individual kennel spaces and are never interacted or share that space during their stay. The kennel benefits from raised beds, fleece blankets and infra red heating. They are all secured units and the kennel itself is also completely enclosed, as security for the, ' Doggy Houdini's'.
We supply all bedding, bowls and treats. We also supply all the food in our pricing, however if your dog has a specific diet or allergies to certain foods then we ask that you bring their own food with them.
If your dogs have any medical issues or medicine is to be administrated then you must inform us when booking your dogs with us so we can update thei record and the feeders and kennel hands will carry out this procedure.
The dogs benefit from three walks a day, come sun, rain, snow or storms. We are out whatever the weather. This is why we offer onsite grooming services as an optional extra, so that the dogs are bathed, blow dried and smelling fresh ready for departure. There are also three off lead run enclosures so your dogs can take time out on their own.
