The winter maintenance work is in full swing, especially in the cattery. We are undertaking an extensive upgrade to the pens, both inside and out. New tiled floor through out, roof, bespoke galvanised outside fencing, pvc double glazed doors with new shelving inside. Then a fresh lick of paint to give a lovely fresh feel.
The final touch is brand new fleece bedding for everyone to snuggle into.
The winter maintenance work has included a major rework of the drive and car park with a full facelift. The entire surface has been tarmacked so you no longer have to dodge any puddles, lumps or bumps.
We are adding purpose built climbing frames to the outside areas of the cattery pens. With multiple levels and ladders we aiming to give the cats an area that they can climb on or alternatively lie out and enjoy the sunshine (when we get some!). They are built from marine quality wood so they will be able to stand all weathers.

Alfie, a lovely Springer Spaniel, came to grooming college with us last week. He was clipped all over including face and pads. This type of cut is great to ensure a low maintenance pet. It should mean less hair is lost on the furniture and a lot less dirt is brought into the house when they have been out on their walks (especially at this time of year). (more…)
New Year, new look. We have well and truly started the kennel makeover, they are being rendered and painted from top to toe with specialist paint to make them a lighter, airier place for our dogs to stay. First off though, it is the doors that are getting some attention and boy are we going all out for colour!
