So What Do We Do?

Dog Walking.

We believe people's perceptions of a 'good dog walk' are dictated by just how tired your dog is when they arrive home. We agree that Yes, a dog should be tired by the end of it but has the walk really benefited your dog in the long run?

We believe a dog walk should be structured, fun-filled, relaxing & enjoyable whilst the dogs are receiving love and affection AT THE RIGHT TIMES.

We do this by focusing on dogs socialising together by migrating (walking) as a pack in a fun & balanced way. We do this is in quieter areas, filling them with positive reinforcement when they show a calm, balanced and well behaved state of mind. 

Day Care.

Home Boarding.

At Stablecroft all of our guests can make full use of our day care facilities before making their way up to the bungalow where they spend the evening. 

We know the opinions on 'old school' style kennels are changing with owners wanting their dogs to be more comfortable in a 'home from home'.


This has been our ethos since our opening in 2013, Looking after our guests as if they were our own. For this reason we have very limited numbers to ensure our boarders are given the space they need.  

Day Care has always been our bread and butter.

Making use of the space we have we truly believe Stablecroft is a setup like no other.


The various indoor and (mainly) outdoor areas allow us to give each dog a day tailored to their needs. We can split them into groups best suited to size, breed, age and most importantly their energy levels. 

Each day is different but we use a mixture of both physical and mental enrichment to really stimulate all of their senses making sure they go home happy they spent the day with us. All dogs will take part in our pack walks explained above.

Socialisation is at the heart of all that we do and given the space the dogs have, we believe this is what sets us apart and we invite you along to see what we've built over the years.

Our Grooming Parlour.

Our  Grooming Parlour operates out of one of our converted stables with all of the facilities to complete grooms of all types.
