Boarding your dog

Peace of mind while you're away

Our primary concern is that your dog is safe, healthy and happy while staying with us. We provide great boarding facilities and a high level of care from our experienced and qualified team.

We offer a choice of double or single pen and complete flexibility regarding your dog's exercise during their stay. Choose whether you wish your dog to be walked on a lead off site, taken for exercise and playtime in our large paddock area, or a combination of the two!

Please ensure that your dog has been fully vaccinated and is up to date with worming and flea treatments. We require you to bring your dog's annual vaccination certificate each time he/she boards with us. Thank you for understanding.

Please note- Teckels has recently had a few cases of 'canine cough' within our facilities.

We do advise our clients to inoculate against Kennel Cough annually and at least 14 days prior to boarding with Teckels. While the vaccine does not completely eradicate the possibility of dogs contracting Kennel Cough, it does reduce the chance of infection.


Our prices are below and apply for the duration of the stay, including the entire day of both arrival and departure. Bank holidays charges apply for Christmas eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New years eve and New Year bookings – please enquire for further details.

Our daily charge includes:

Our one optional, additional cost is for bathing your dog before they leave the kennels at your request. Please let us know if you would like this service when you book.

Type of boarding required Daily rate Bank holidays
Standard charge for 1 dog in kennel



Standard charge for 2 dogs sharing a kennel £24.50


Standard Charge for 3 dogs sharing a kennel £35.50


Standard charge for 4 or more dogs sharing a kennel £11 per dog

Day boarding (Drop off 9am onwards and collect by 4pm)

Day Boarding (Drop off between 7am - 9am and collect by 6.30pm) 





Deposits: We require a non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. This deposit is equal to the cost of an overnight stay at Teckels for the dog/dogs boarding with us. All deposits are non-transferable to any amended dates. 

To make a boarding reservation please call us on 01452 740300 or book online now.

Supplement for short bookings during peak periods

We are happy to offer short bookings for the convenience of our customers, however from December 2017 we will be introducing a supplement for bookings of four days or less during peak times (Easter and school summer holidays). Some local kennels will only take 7-day bookings during these busy periods but instead we will continue to offer short bookings with a supplement of £20 for 4 days or less.

Teckels is non-profit and any leftover money from our boarding services is used to help the animals in our rescue and rehoming centre. A recent increase in short bookings has meant that we have had to turn down longer bookings, leaving some kennels empty mid-week during our busiest periods. By introducing a supplement for these peak times we are able to continue offering short bookings while still providing our homeless animals as much support as we possibly can. Thank you for understanding.
