About dog exercise with our Boarding Kennels:

Exercise & Play in Boarding Kennels

Ridge Hill Kennels prides itself on the amount of exercise we give our guest dogs.  

All dogs have access to our two securely fenced fields.

All dogs are exercised off the lead in these secure exercise fields.

Dogs are exercised together if they are socialable, this is great for interaction with each other and good for loads of fun exercise.

One of our most enjoyable parts of the job is playing every day with each of the dogs.

Our guest dogs can have as much or as little exercise as they require but will still have interaction with other dogs.


Dog Walks/Exercise/Playtime with Staff:

Dogs exercised by staff:

120 minutes of walks/exercise with staff provided daily

About dog walks/playtime with staff

Dog Walks at the Boarding Kennels

All exercise is enjoyable for the dogs - they can interact with the other dogs or just site back and watch.

It is very important to us that all the dogs get a playtime, with EVERY need catered for.
