Archie And George

Archie And George

We left our two Saint Bernards Archie and George for the first time having visited the kennels and realised what a lovely place they would be staying in. We received photos of the boys every day and could see that they were enjoying themselves in the fields we would highly recommend these kennels for the care and kindness our dogs received. 5*

Best Kennels Ever !!
by Emma Tipping, Worcestershire

Best Kennels Ever !!

My 2 lurchers, Dipstick and Marble, absolutely adore Amarnda, and her kennels. They bounce out of the car to greet her, and tails wagging, walk off happily with her to enjoy their stay at her lovely kennels. Amarnda takes photo's of them playing in the huge field, and emails them to us while we are away, so we can see them enjoying themselves - playing chase, tag, and all the usual lurcher games. They always return clean, happy and tired, having had a great time - which gives me peace of mind they are well looked after and safe while I am away. She goes out of her way to make sure they eat properly - not always easy for a fussy lurcher like Marble - and will try different foods until she finds one that suits. 

 

Fussy dog owners will understand when I say that thebest testimonial for a kennels is when the dogs see the owner arrive to collect them - and think " noooooo !!! not yet !!"

Two Large Breed Owner
by Cheryl Nairn, Worcestershire

Two Large Breed Owner

After a lengthy search of google which followed an often shocking inspection of other kennels in the area stretching from Bromsgrove to Redditch to Kidderminster I was lucky enough to stumble along A & B Kennels.

My dogs are not the easiest dogs to look after, my Bullmastiff is stroppy and will only do things on her terms and sulks, and my RottiX is dog aggressive, not exactly the easiest of problems to encourage a kennel to take on!

I arranged an appointment with A&B to view the kennels and talk about these issues. As I entered through the security gates, I knew these kennels were going to be different, the cleanliness and hygiene standards were obvious. It smelt so clean and looked spotless.

After discussing my needs, and having routines and standards explained, shown cctv real time footage of each the kennels, I was invited to look at the kennels.  (I must admit I was already so very impressed at this point!!)  I was asked to keep quiet so that my presence did not disturb the dogs.  I was a bit puzzled as I couldn't hear the normal racket of constant, ear piercing, dog barking and yet I'd seen 'residents' on CCTV.

I walked towards the kennels and stood on the protection barrier as instructed and peered into two empty kennels, which were spotless! The whole place smelt so clean.  Where was the normal distressed, endless dog barking that you normally hear in kennels?  There isn't any; these dogs are so routined and exceptionally well cared for that they're clearly content.  I was amazed, let me book in! 

As we left the kennels, there was a rotti enjoying himself in the sunshine out in one of the large paddocks, Amarnda kindly talked to him and he wagged his tail in excitement.  As a prospective client I felt this was all very reassuring - she knows these dogs and they know her I thought.

I travel 4-6 times a year and this kennel have never ceased to please.  My dogs freely give out 'kisses' to the owner as soon as they see her, tails wagging, they're going on holiday too!  I love the video footage and photos posted online so that I can see my 'babies' whilst I'm away!

I must also praise them for the behaviourial guidance and endless support they gave to me and my RottiX.  It was very very gratefully received.

I seriously would recomend this kennel head and shoulders above any other! Visit and you'll see why!
