Delivery and Collection
We can offer you a delivery and collection service for your pet so if you don’t have access to a car we can pick them up at a convenient time and drop them off when you come back from your holiday. The cost depends on mileage so please give us a call on 01494 881521 for a price.
Introductory Swim Sessions
Is it your dog’s first time in water? Or maybe just their first time in a swimming pool? Do you have a puppy that you want to teach to swim? Our introductory swim sessions are 121 with you, the dog and a senior member of staff at Greendale Farm Kennels and Cattery. This session lasts 25 minutes, with an additional 5 minutes to use the drying room if needed. You will have a senior member of staff with you for the whole 25 minutes, to give you and your dog any help and advice you may need. You may request the member of staff to get in the pool with your dog as well. These sessions can be booked Monday – Sunday between 10:00am and 3:00pm.
Boarding and Swimming
Whilst you are away on holiday and your dog is boarding with us we can take your dog swimming, we will split the sessions into 2×15 minute swims. This is charged at £15.00 for 1 dog, £22.00 for 2 dogs and £25.00 for 3 dogs, just let us know if you want your dog to have some swim sessions when you bring him/her into stay.
We can not promise that your dog will enjoy swimming, and if they are not keen on going in the water we do not force them. We will let you know at the end of their stay how they got on with the pool.
Fun Swim Pool Hire
As well as offering swimming as an extra to our boarding dogs, members of the public are also welcome to hire out the pool for a minimum of 30 mins for a swim with your four legged friend! Included in a fun swim hire you get full use of the pool and secure paddock, full use of the drying room with towels, blaster and hair dryer, tennis balls and poo bags! Please see our hydrotherapy page for pricing!

We offer a bath service which we do the day before your dog comes home. It costs an extra £15.00 on top of their board. If your dog shows any sign of aggression, stress or reluctancy to go near the water, we may not be able to bath them. Their welfare is our number one priority, and if they are going to become stressed having the bath, we may refuse to bath them.
We also offer a bath service outside of boarding, where you can bring your dog in and they will have a bath with a senior member of staff in our groom room. We do not currently offer a full groom.

Training while Boarding
During your dogs stay with us, you can book them into reward based, force free, enrichment training. This focuses on basic training such as sits, downs, stays, paw, lead walking, recall etc. You are more than welcome to put a request in, if there is something you would particularly like us to work on. All training is treat and toy based, and is overseen by Millie (Manager) who is a qualified reward based dog trainer. These sessions are run by our senior members of staff ensuring your dog gets plenty of mental stimulation during their stay. Training sessions are £10.00 for fifteen minute sessions.
Kennel training is an additional service we offer for dogs that suffer with behavioural problems using reward based, force free, training. These sessions are for the senior staff to bond with the dog through lots of yummy treats, as well as the owner being able to be present and see everything that goes on! The sessions start by building a bond by playing in the paddock, and then moving up to working in our quiet isolation block going in and out of kennels. We make everything really fun, and the dog can decide if they want to go in the kennel or not. We do not do anything with force and we work completely at the dogs pace ensuring they are happy the whole time! Millie the manager, is a qualified reward based dog trainer and behaviourist. These sessions are £20, for half an hour with our senior team. For this price, your dog is getting 121 attention with yourself and the staff, lots of treats and full use of the field and isolation block when empty.
We do offer day boards at Greendale Farm, however we are not a daycare. We are more than happy to take your pet for the day, however the drop off and pick up times are the same as our regular boarding times. You will be charged for a full days board, and your pet will have the same treatment as our longer boarders. We do not socialise day boarders, and day boarders must also be up to date with their vaccinations, exactly the same as our longer boarders. This is perfect for pets who have never been in the kennel/cattery environment before. It is advised to work up from a day board to a longer period of time to ensure your pet is happy with us.
On the 6th April 2016, the new microchipping law came into play, which means ALL dogs must be microchipped and registered by the age of 8 weeks old. Although this is not yet compulsory for cats, it is heavily advised to get your cat chipped, and is needed to board in a cattery. At Greendale, we have a microchip scanner, so if you want to check your microchip number, or want to check your pet is chipped, just call us up and let us know when you are going to pop up (no appointment needed), and we will be ready with lots of tasty treats for your pet!
In early 2020, we have introduced our rescue scheme, in order to be able to help and work with rescues local to us, as well as the ones a bit further a field. As well as making donations to rescues regularly, this scheme allows us to help dogs and cats who are looking for their forever homes, while rescues are so full. If you work for a rescue, or want to know more about how we can help, please drop an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
