From the first visit to check the suitability of Greendale Farm Kennels, to the day we picked River up after a 10 day stay, we have had nothing but praise for the accommodation, the staff and their care. It was the first time in kennels alone for our 10 year old Miniature Long haired Dachshund so our concern was great. Throughout the whole process it became obvious that our worries were unfounded and we were able to leave him, confident in the knowledge that he would be safe and well cared for.
We are so grateful to have found such an amazing place to leave him in the future if he is unable to come along with us.
Thank you all so much
Until next time.
Oscar loves visiting when we go away as he is well looked after and loves his swim. Highly recommend these kennels.
Fantastic – my dog spent 3 nights there in October -no worries & well looked after.
Thank you so much for your care and attention to Harry and Archie whilst in the cattery. They have come home looking very well cared for, well fed and importantly no signs of stress. It is much appreciated.
The staff at Greendale looked after my 4 dogs very well, after 2 weeks there they were happy and content and even a little tired which I think is a good sign. Thank you to all staff.
My only gripe is there was no grain free food on offer so I had to provide my own, not the end of the world and not worth dropping a star for.
Would recommend to anyone.
Took our pair of pooches there for a trial as they’d had a not nice experience in kennels previously.
They both came out with wagging tails.
They’re looking forward to their next stay in a few weeks.
Staff are friendly and took great care with my nervous rescue dog. Highly recommend!
I travel over 40 miles to get there and use the doggy hydro swimming pool cos it’s ace & staff always so lovely.
We had a fantastic time in the pool and would definitely go again it was worth every penny. Best thing in the world swimming with my deaf girl.
I took my dog to the pool today. We haven’t been for a while the staff still remembered us and as always so helpful. Jim gets so excited to go and see them which is fantastic seeing as he has a couple of nervous issues. Fantastic place x see you again soon x
What a truly fantastic and friendly kennels. Jennie and her team are just so helpful, knowledgeable and so caring with our dog Freddie. We definitely feel we have found the best kennel for our little dog, wouldn’t hesitate in leaving him as we just know he is in safe hands and is always so well looked after. At least now we can have a holiday and so can Freddie.
Would highly recommend Greendale Farm, you won’t be disappointed. xx
The team at Greendale Farm Kennels and Cattery did an amazing job with Harley and the customer service was excellent! Harley looked as playful as ever when I came to pick him up and it looked like he took to you guys really well.
Thank you and the team very much for looking after him and we will be back soon as I am determined to get him swimming!
We were so concerned dropping our dog off at Greendale. We were off for a 2 week holiday and he’s been in kennels many, many times before and very used to them but this time was different. Our dog has been ill for about 8/9 months now and we keep thinking he’ll be better soon but it doesn’t happen. As the 2week holiday approached I was getting more and more nervous so we tried him in our local kennels, just down the road, for 1 night only just to see how he’d do – not Greendale btw!
His illness is pancreas related and his weight has just dropped off him so he’s on a very strict diet to try to put weight on him and the vet and I have been working hard to achieve this with mixed success. He had started to gain a bit of weight and we had it down to a fine art – instructions were given for quantities of the not inexpensive food as well as medication. In two days he managed to lose 1 kg which is a lot for a dog of his size weighing about 19 kg (normal weight about 23 kg). The kennels gave him back to us with a carrier bag with his food in it which he ‘refused to eat, so we gave him our usual brand’……….I was desperately upset!
I told my husband I couldn’t go on holiday abroad as he would be dead by the time we got home – big row!! So he suggested Greendale which is a bit of a trek but the dog had stayed there a couple of years ago and we did like it – good idea!
So that’s what we did………….we nervously picked him up 2 weeks later after again giving detailed instructions for his food and medication which I had written down meticulously and so did they ‘to get it in my head so I know what I’m doing’ the manager said! Very little exercise and feeding 4 times a day – above and beyond etc etc….
He lost .2 of a kilogram – YAAY!!! .2 only – he looked happy, confident – ‘fat’ even – he’s really filled out – should offer a rehab facility or recuperation facility!
We were so very very grateful – to their kindness and absolute diligence – we really felt they had his best interests at heart and when we collected him we nodded and smiled and listened as we were given a blow by blow account of his stay and daily routine… I really cannot praise them highly enough and can only highly recommend Greendale.
Thank you all so very much!
I’ve known both the kennels and the family for many years now. The kennels are beautifully clean and the welfare of the dogs always comes first. Jennifer and Dennis insist on only employing the very best staff and put a huge amount of effort into training and encouraging the professional growth of their handpicked staff. Their knowledge of dogs goes far beyond that of the normal pet dog and I am always confident to leave my working dogs in their care. My dogs needs are always catered for and I have complete confidence they will be stimulated and exercised throughout their stay. I could not recommend Greendale enough.
I have been using Greendale Farm since my eldest dog, Layla, was a pup (some 11 years) ago. Now she comes along with her younger brother, Barney (aged 4), they share a special double-size kennel. This means they can spend time together but, during the day, they spend time socialising. Layla enjoys being with slightly more sedate “old timers” and Barney (who is a bonkers Labradoodle) has a whale of a time racing around with the young whippersnappers!!
The staff at Greendale are wonderful. Many have been there from the beginning (so they really know my dogs) and nothing is too much trouble. It is easy to tell if a dog is anxious about a situation, but I can honestly say my two pull my arms off to get when we arrive, and seem to know they’re going to have a great “holiday”.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough, and would not want to use anywhere else.
I previously used another local kennel and was very disapointed with the service and how sad and smelly my boy was on collection. A friend recommended i tried Greendale and I couldnt be happier ! My boy actually pulls to go in when i drop him off and is happy and healthy when i collect him. He always has a couple of swims as a treat which along with the exercise in the paddocks with the lovely staff makes his stay a happy one. Thank you Greendale for making sure my boy has a happy holiday so I can relax and enjoy mine without worrying.
My dog willow loves coming and staying with you guys. It’s her second home. Her favourite thing to do is swimming, she could do that all day. The staff at greendale are willows best friends.
We highly recommend Greendale Farm Kennels.Our Jack Russell stays there every summer and she always comes back in excellent condition.The staff is very friendly and reassuring.I am very grateful for the care they give Poppy and she will be back next year.
Our dogs and cats always come home happy, the staff are very friendly. I have been using Greendale for years and would always recommend it anyone.
