Top Dog kennels is one of the finest luxury boarding kennels in the UK.

In fact, we are more than just a luxury kennels, we are a five star hotel for dogs that provides a level of peace, comfort, love, care, attention and cleanliness that you will find difficult to surpass and where nothing is too much trouble.

Martin, Lesley and the team understand that our guests are more than just pets, they are your ‘children’, adored members of your family and that when you go away you need the peace of mind that comes with knowing your beloved doggies are in the best possible hands and as we only have eight rooms, plenty of love and attention is guaranteed.

Each spacious, hand painted and themed room has top of the range electric heating and air conditioning, a glow effect fire, TV, DVD player and a fitted comfort carpet. All inside a fully secure, alarmed, purpose built, solid brick building and set in tranquil surroundings with beautiful views across the open countryside. Together with their own private runs there is a three acre, completely secure play area where they can run free several times a day.

We have collectively more than 40 years experience of looking after dogs and we are truly proud of our exceptional reputation.

At Top Dog, we have created a pooch’s paradise, a real home from home.

Our dog is precious to us and we'd not dream of letting her go on her holiday anywhere else. She's always so happy. It's an amazing place with dogs being treated as celebrities. Thank your for looking after our crackerjack staffie once again...she's already asked us when she's allowed to go again. Lee & Adele.

This is the best place for your dogs to stay. Our 2 boys stayed here for 2 weeks and I think they had a better holiday than we did, with 5 star treatment. Thank you to Katy, Shannon, Emma, Darcy and Martin for looking after them so well and clearly making there stay a happy one. We had regular WhatsApp updates and photos showing how much they enjoyed it and that made us fully relaxed while we were away. Nothing was to much and it was great to see the boys so happy. This will be there regular holiday home from now on🐶🐶🐶

We can't thank Martin, Emma, Katy, Shannon and Darcy enough for taking such great care of Taylor, our whippet while we went away and for the superb photos of his adventures. They all went above and beyond to keep him active, happy and cared for. We had total peace of mind that he was in good hands, which is invaluable.

This place is a true godsend for us, and Martin, Lesley and their staff are amazing. We have two rescue dogs, one of whom has severe anxiety issues and can be very distrustful of strangers and difficult to handle. Both absolutely love it at Top Dog, and Lesley, Martin, Katy, Shannon and Darcy are brilliant in taking account of our dogs' individual needs and quirks, and now, after over four years of regular stays, know them so well. Our dogs love them and get very excited every time we drop them off. They know 'their' room (which, like all others, really is a proper room, not a kennel, with access to outdoor space) and can't wait to go and find it! They always come back happy and healthy, shiny coats, same weight, no dandruff or other signs of distress, and we know they have had proper exercise because they are not 'bursting for a proper run' or similar. We often get pictures of our two being very happy and excited doing agility jumps with some of the staff! We also really like the excellent security on site. We were really worried about Indy, our anxious dog, because she has been known to be an escape artist if she wants to find us, but each room has double doors, and the whole building and directly adjacent paddocks are very safe. The large field in which the dogs exercise is a lovely space too - plenty to sniff and run around, and with very high fencing. So it really is all top notch- we can't recommend it enough. A true home from home. Need to book early, though - this place is in very high demand all year round!

Martin and Lesley are unbelievably friendly, reliable, caring owners. I cannot fault the love and support they give to both myself and my beloved dogs. Definitely the best place to book when you can't take your dog away with you. Highly recommended.

I currently have 4 Basset Hounds and 2 Wirehaired Dachshunds they absolutely love going on holiday to Top Dog . I have been using this wonderful hotel for dogs for many years and my dogs go in wagging and come out wagging. This is outstanding dog care the team of carers really love dogs. Thank you so much Martin and Lesley and all the girls Katy, Shannon, Darcy and Emma for looking after my gang. They all enjoyed lots of exercise on and off leads great attention and tummy rubs. Basset’s need human company more than anything and this is the only place I can trust that they will get exactly what they need. Amazing top notch and such a peaceful location well designed layout to cater for all needs.

Our boys just stayed with the lovely team at Top Dogs for their first time over a few nights. We have just picked them up and we were so happy to see them looking so well and superbly looked after. You can tell they’ve had plenty of exercise as they’re flat out at home - they’re cleaner than they’ve ever been and the awesome team even washed their blankets whilst they were staying. Thank you! We had never left them in kennels before and we were extremely worried. After finding Top Dogs, we went to look round and our minds were at complete ease. The rooms are made to feel like home and we were even able to take our boys favourite chair for them, along with everything else they needed. We left the boys in complete confidence and enjoyed our time away knowing they would be so well looked after and they were. Can’t recommend enough!
