Here at Millmount Dogs we take the pampering of your pooch very seriously.

Having a very spoilt black labrador ourselves we understand that your dog is part of your family so you can rest assured that whilst in our care they will be treated as if they are one of our own.

We are convientley located on the edge of castle lake forest which means not only do our guests have fantastic daily walks they also have a gorgeous view from their accommodation.

As we only have 5 kennels all of our boarders receive the individual attention they need and deserve whilst they are with us.

About our staff, knowledge and experience:

Jo Peters
Having been around animals since before I could walk and also with working with them all day everyday I decided I wanted to be able to immortalise them in portraits…..

I work in pastel pencil and create lifelike portraits of your beloved pets that will last forever.

Having a trio of very spoilt dogs ourselves, Tia our Black Lab, Lady our Golden retriever who we rescued and Minty our Border Collie that we inherited, we understand that your dog is very much part of your family so you can rest assured that whilst they are in our care they will be treated as if they are one of our own.

About our Kennels

Our kennels are a purpose built which are fully insulated with Kingspan insulated roofing, fully insulated walls and insulated internal panels separating the indoor part of the kennels.

Each of the kennels has an insulated door connecting to the external run which is closed up at night time when are our guests are in bed.

The exterior runs are covered which allows our guests to remain dry if they wish to be outside even when it's raining.

All of the windows and doors are double glazed.

We have laid safety non slip flooring to all of the flooring areas.

Each kennel is equipt with a comfy bed, water and feed bowls and plenty of sqeaky toys and balls.

You are of course welcome to bring your dogs own bed and toys if you feel they will enjoy their stay all the more with their own bits and pieces.

Dog Exercise & Play:

Dogs get out of their Kennels for exercise:

Dogs are taken out of KennelsWe're proud to say dogs DO get out of their kennels here.
We know how important it is (mentally and physically) for dogs to play, sniff, run around and stretch their legs.
In other words, for dogs to be dogs!


About dog exercise with our Boarding Kennels:

Exercise & Play in Boarding Kennels

We are currently converting one of our barns into a "play barn" so once it has been pooch proofed your dogs will be able to play for at least an hour a day in there which will have a ball pool and bean bags and as many toys as they can cope with.

Until this is done our guests have access to their 14ft attached run all day long.

After breakfast we go for a walk around our 3 acres and this is repeated in the evening, so as well as the main walk of the day they get plenty of mooching time.

 

Dog Walks/Exercise/Playtime with Staff:

Dogs exercised by staff:

75 minutes of walks/exercise with staff provided daily

Less than 20 kennels per buildingWe're proud to say we offer walks/ exercise/ playtime WITH staff.
We know how important it is for dogs to have our company one-to-one.
It's much more fun!

About dog walks/playtime with staff

Dog Walks at the Boarding Kennels

Around mid afternoon we set off for a walk around Castle Forest Lake which takes roughly 45mins, depending on whether the dogs decide to take a dip in the lake.

We are happy to allow dogs off the lead but only once we have permission from owners which is signed for at drop off stage. If you don't sign to say they are safe to go off the lead then they will remain on the lead the whole time. Whilst in our care, all dogs have a 'Millmount Boarding Kennels' tag added to their collar.

If we have dogs that prefer to be walked on their own, for example an elderly dog that likes to take their time, then these will be walked separately as we understand each dog is different and have their own needs.

Dog Care

Welfare & Settling In

Comfort items from home allowed:

DAP Therapy used: DAP Therapy (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) used in Kennels

Comfort items We're proud to say we DO allow & encourage comfort items for dogs. We understand how important it is to help your dog relax and feel settled quickly, more at home with us. This is such an easy way to comfort your dog. After all, we all love our home comforts don't we?!

DAP Therapy (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) used in KennelsWe're proud to say we DO offer D.A.P therapy here to calm and reassure dogs. We believe in doing as much as possible to help your dogs have a happy stay with us, especially when such great, positive benefits to dog welfare can be provided so easily and simply.


Our policy on comfort items:

Dog Welfare in Boarding Kennels

We understand that dogs may find it easier to settle in if they have something that reminds them of being at home and therefore if you would like to bring along their own bed and toys then this is absolutely fine.

At bed time all of our guest have a bed time biscuit before lights out.

We have a radio playing all day long which again can remind them of being at home.

Whilst most dogs are perfectly happy to stay in the kennel building we know that some dogs, such as our own, would only be happy staying in a home environment and in this case we are happy to accept them into our own home.


Diet

Will you feed the same diet as at home:

Comfort items We're proud to say we DO offer to feed your dog the same diet as at home.
We understand how important it is to help your dog settle in quickly and easily without any digestive problems that would be caused with a change of diet.

 

Will you feed special/prescription diets:

Will feed natural/organic diets:


Caring for Dogs

Care of Easy-going & Steady Dogs


Care of Active Dogs

For our dogs that have a little bit more extra energy than some but who aren't allowed to be let off the lead we have own own extendable leads which means they have the freedom to run on further whilst we still have control.

A Home From Home
by Michelle McNeice, Cavan

A Home From Home

Through local contact, we recently started using the super facility at Millmount Boarding Kennels in Bailieborough for our two springer spaniels. 

Jo and Lee are definitely animal lovers and it shows in how they treat their guests.  The facilites are excellent and the care and attention our 'babies' recieve are second to none!  They provide plenty of 'out time' and there's lots of room for your furry friends to run wild, there's even a grooming service available!

Considering all of the above coupled with their competitive rates and flexible drop off and pick up times, we would have no hesitation in recommending Millmount and the excellent service Jo and Lee provide!
