Testimonials

" I could not recommend Hollygrove Kennels highly enough. On every occasion that we have left our Newfoundland Brendan in Nigel, his family and his excellent staffs care, we can rest assured he is receiving the best of treatment. Our dog is the first baby of the family so he only ever gets the best. Hollygroves grounds are impeccable and the kennels are always well maintained. I call them kennels but they are actually refurbished horse stables, so plenty of room when the pups are indoors. We always receive a friendly and personable service, and Nigel himself is always up for a chat and an anecdote. I would never consider leaving Brendan anywhere else.
We feel valued as a customer and have only had a positive experience with everyone at Hollygrove. Whenever we have had to get Nigel and his team to administer any medication to Brendan, if he was unwell when we had to leave him in, we could rely on Nigel and his team to see Brendan through his illness in our absence.
Most recently we had to depend once more on Nigel and everyone at Hollygrove as we were expecting our new baby girl. As is the way with these things, we missed our due date and we couldn't be certain of when we would be back home. One call to Nigel sorted out any concerns we had regarding Brendans care. We were told to drop him in and collect whenever we were settled back at home. This level of service was not only a huge comfort to us during an already stressful time, but it guarantees our patronage in the future."

" Just picked up my Rottie Cross Iris from another stay at Hollygrove Kennels where she has been going any time we've been going away for several years now. The facilities are amazing and it's such a comfort knowing she's well looked after while I'm away. Can't recommend Hollygrove highly enough. "

Dog Maintenance

There are a number of elements that one must keep in mind as a dog owner in order to ensure a healthy and happy pet.

  • Health From post-natal dog care to deworming puppies, there are a lot of things to think about when it comes to your dog’s health. The best thing to do is to ask your vet. The average life span for a dog is 13 years however this is dependent on breed. Please see our ‘Vaccinations’ section below for more information.

  • Feeding Like humans, dogs require a balanced and healthy diet consisting of protein, carbohydrates and fat. It is important that you regulate and monitor your dog’s eating to avoid them getting too thin or too fat. Some of our top tips include the avoidance of bones and healthy snacks.

  • Socialisation The most important period of socialisation for a puppy is between eight and 16 weeks. During this time, a puppy is supposed to interact and become familiar with an array of experiences such as traffic, strangers and children. If you hide your dog away during this time, it can grow up to be fearful.

  • Housing From wooden kennels to soft beds, it is easy to create a nice space for your dog to rest. Some breeds prefer soft bedding while others get joint swelling from sleeping on hard floors. Find out what your dog wants by asking friends who have the same breed. Do go for something that is easily washed.
