Our kennels are modern "Four star" luxury purpose-built accommodation blocks- double glazed, fully insulated and tiled throughout. There are individual interior kennels with wall-mounted 3 ft x 2 ft fibreglass beds in which we provide fleece vet bedding. Each individual kennel has all day access to an outside tiled weather-proofed covered run with insulated bench. We have larger kennels which have been designed to comfortably accommodate more than one dog from the same household who wish to board together.

Each block has electric thermostatically controlled heating and dehumidifiers to ensure warm dry conditions and year round comfort whatever the weather. Music is played in each block all day for company.


We have four full time kennel staff, all of whom have taken Animal Care courses. They have been carefully selected for their love of dogs and they always ensure there is time for exercise, play and one-to-one contact with the dogs in their care.


Dogs are exercised twice a day in our various exercise areas dependant on the type of exercise required. We have a drying/grooming room with commercial dryers, to ensure your pet is dry when returning to his/her kennel after exercsing in wet weather.


We feed Pedigree Chum Complete (chicken and rice) plus tinned meat which suits most canine palates. However, if your dog has another favourite food or is on a special diet you are welcome to bring this and we will feed as per your instructions.


No pets can be accepted if suffering from any infection. However, if your dog is receiving medication, i.e. tablets, medicine etc.. this can be continued whilst staying at Meriroyles and will be administered by our experienced staff as instructed by your vet and recorded for your reference on our medication cards.

Vaccination Requirements

All dogs boarded must hold a current vaccination certificate PLUS the Bordatella Bronchiseptica vaccine for Kennel Cough. (Nasal drops which must be administered by your vet at least 2 weeks prior to boarding.) Vaccination cards are to be produced at each visit and we regret without the correct and up to date vaccinations we do not accept any dog into our kennels. We also request that your dog has been treated for worms and fleas within 2 months of visiting us.


Whilst your pet stays with us it will be insured with Pet Plan Five Star insurance which covers Veterinary fees for illness whilst your pet is boarded with us or an illness that first shows signs within 72 hours of leaving our care. A charge of 30 pence per day per dog will be added to your boarding invoice for this service. Dogs are not fully covered for an existing or recurring complaint. We must be notified of any medical problems that have occurred in the last 6 months.


Helpful Information


We aim to provide the highest level of care for all dogs who stay with us and we treat each pet as if it were our own. If you think Meriroyles Luxury Boarding Kennels would suit your pet kindly telephone 01676 522405 with reference to availability, when we will be pleased to let you have a Boarding Reservation Form for completion together with our details, prices etc. Please note we do not take bookings by email. We know that Meriroyles cannot provide total comforts of home but we do our best to provide a happy enjoyable experience. Most of our visitors love their holiday break with their old and new friends. However good a kennel is, some dogs suffer from separation stress and this is sometimes apparent in an elderly dog who has never been in kennels before. Your young dog may benefit from a few days in kennels every so often to get used to the experience in preparation for future longer stays. We have a policy of not boarding dogs that constantly bark upsetting other dogs.
Also, we do not board dogs who are aggressive to people or other dogs.
Our day starts with cleaning the kennels and runs , feeding and health checks. Thereafter it is exercise time, playtime, grooming and cuddle time. When bringing your dog to our kennels allow plenty of time and don't be in a last minute panic and pushed for time. If you are stressed this will be communicated to your pet and it is far better to leave him/her when you are happy and relaxed so your dogs thinks there's nothing to worry about!
