Hilltop Kennels Colchester Clacton Kennels Brightlingsea
Our spacious, individually heated kennels each have an attached private exercise run and are large enough to accommodate up to four dogs from the same family.
In addition to daily supervised one-to-one walks in our secure 7 acre grounds, each dog will have the opportunity to try one of our three purpose-built outdoor play areas which provide a variety of different surfaces (including the extremely popular tree stump and digging area!) and other enrichment activities.
Provided as standard, all dogs receive a quality daily food menu with both complete biscuit and tinned foods. If your dog prefers a specific brand of food, we offer most popular ranges. If you prefer, you may bring your pet's own food. We have dedicated freezers and fridges to store fresh food such as raw feed and vegetable supplements or temperature sensitive medication such as insulin for diabetic animals.
At regular periods during the day, each kennel is provided with a Kong chewtoy to provide each pet additional stimulation and something to distract them from the scenic views of the grassy lawns outside their exercise run.
All required medications are accurately adhered to and administered free of charge (including insulin injections).
If there is any aspect of our services you wish to discuss, please do get in touch with us and we will be very happy to help.
The Small Print
We aim to offer a flexible service so please call to discuss anything not covered already. However there are certain rules we must enforce to ensure the safety and security of all the animals entrusted to our care.
Under absolutely no circumstances will we accept any animal without proof of their up to date vaccinations. In the absence of your pet's vaccination card, we will contact your vet for their confirmation over the phone.
With the exception of annual boosters, no newly vaccinated animal can be boarded until 2 weeks after vaccination
For more information, please refer to the guidance on the RSPCA website.
