Updated: 23/4/21

The hydrotherapy pool and field hire are now open for business again and we are now taking deposits again for all boarding bookings from the summer holidays onwards – should your booking get cancelled due to COVID your deposit will be credited for your next booking.

Please ensure you get your dogs/cats vaccine cards and microchip numbers sent over to: millie.brice@aol.co.uk (Millie – Manager), in plenty of time for your pets board. Usually we ask all our customers to bring these in, but due to COVID we are doing this digitally. We will update when we will require owners to bring them back in. Please remember, these must be sent over/brought in EVERY TIME your pet boards with us so we can ensure they are always up to date with no changes.

Anyone dropping off/collecting boarders or are coming for a tour of the facilities, please ensure when you are coming onto site you are wearing as mask, unless you are exempt for medical reasons and have made a timed appointment with the staff. Thank you!

Welcome to Greendale Farm Kennels and Cattery and Hydrotherapy Pool

Greendale Farm Kennels and Cattery is a licensed and insured family run business, owned by Mr Dennis Roose. His son James Bergh-Roose lives on site, as well as Milly Taylor (Senior Kennel Hand) and her mum, so there is ALWAYS someone on site 24 hours a day. Dennis’s Daughter, Jennie, took over as Manager a few years ago, and she put her heart and soul into the family business. Jennie left Greendale in 2019 to move back home with her family, which is when Millie took over as Manager.

The Kennels and Cattery has just grown from strength to strength and is a wonderful, successful business which is thriving more and more each day. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our highly qualified, and friendly team.

Greendale Farm Kennels and Cattery is set in the Chilterns with 7 acres of land and only 5 minutes from Junction 5 of the M40. The Kennels and Cattery was established in 1970 offering boarding for both dogs and cats.

We also have a 30ft x 15ft Hydrotherapy Pool which is one of the largest in the South of England. Please have a read of our Kennels, Hydrotherapy pool and Cattery pages to find out more about them. We also provide extra services such as, baths, training and transport so check those out as well.

Greendale Farm promotes and encourages the use of positive, reward based methods around training and welfare for the dogs and cats. We are a force free kennels and cattery.
