Boarding Kennels Staff/Owners

Fairview Boarding Kennels Boarding Kennels in North Yorkshire

About our staff, knowledge and experience:

I have a H.N.D in Animal Management which I gained 3 years ago and I also have gained a distinction in the Kennel & Cattery Management course which has been designed by the Pet Care Trust to ensure Senior staff & Management are suitably trained.

I have also completed a course in Dog Grooming & Clipping & intend to attend a further grooming course later in the year.

All the staff I employ are dog lovers & are trained in undestanding the different temperaments & behaviour of various breeds & how to treat each visitor as an individual with individual needs

During the winter I manage the running of the kennels myself but in the summer I employ at least 2 members of staff to enable the dogs to have the level of care necessary whilst we are busy.

I am a member of the Pet Care Trust & the Kennel & Cattery Association.

About dog walks/playtime with staff

Dog Walks at the Boarding Kennels

The dogs are walked at the side of a small dyke, on grass where there are plenty of interesting smells (fox, badger, ducks, wild birds etc) as well as other dogs.

If the weather is wet the dogs are walked up a small private road, so there is no risk of getting too wet or muddy.

The exercise paddocks are also grassed & have paths around the perimiter of the kennels.

The staff are encouraged to let each dog out for free play at least twice a day & there is always a dog in each paddock throughout the day.

Caring for Dogs

Care of Easy-going & Steady Dogs

If a dog wishes to have a steady amble while on his walk this is perfectly acceptable and if the dog wishes to return to the kennels he will be brought back.

Through the day dogs can choose whether to stay on their beds or be outside in their pens.

Dogs are not forced to be outside if they do not wish to do so.

Care of Active Dogs

Extended leads are used during walks with dogs and they are encouraged to run around whilst on their walk.

If their owners assure us they are trained to return to a command after a time in the kennels they will be taken under supervision on a free run across the field.

Care of Daycare/creche Dogs

Dogs are designated a particular kennnel where owners can leave their dog before the kennels are officially opened and can collect their dog after the kennels are officially closed.

We can either walk and feed the dogs before the owners return or leave them for their owners to walk and feed.

Special rates are given for long term regular day care.

Bailey Last Day Before Australia

We have been looking after one of our regular customers since just before Christmas. 

The Quarantine regulations changed just before his owners emigrated to Australia &  so Alison  asked us to look after Bailey &,make sure all his Blood Tests,Rabies Vaccinations, & all the other tests he would need, would be completed on time & correctly.,

This will ensure he would be able to enter & have the minimum stay in quarantine when he arrived.

It was a big responsibility but everything went smoothly & we saw Bailey off in his crate & emailed his owner to say he had set off.

She has told us he has arrived & has settled in his new kennels & is eating & all the staff are meking a big fuss of him .

I'm missing him already.

Max Loves To Go For His Holiday
by Maureen Suffolk, west yorkshire

Max Loves To Go For His Holiday

Our Shi Tzu Max really enjoys staying at Fairview, in fact he does not want to know us once he see's Janet. It's a case of "you can go now and let me enjoy my holiday".

At home Max is always on his harness when out walking but here he can run and play all he wants.

He seems to know which kennel will be his and takes us there as soon as we arrive.

It's so nice to know that he is in safe hands and will be well looked after, so we can also enjoy our holidays without having any worries about him. Obviously we miss him and are glad to see him when we get home.

We can't thank Fairview enough for their care.

Thank You!
by Daniella Martin, West Yorkshire

Thank You!

My Siberian Husky Genie stayed at Fairview for 12 days while myself and family went on holiday March 2009. I was very nervous about leaving her as it was her first time away from us (she is only 11 months old) and with her being a husky she needs an awful lot of attention!!. Janet and her husband who run fairview put my mind at ease immediately. I was able to look around the premises and see exactly where Genie was staying and they told me the daily routine for the dogs. When i picked her up i had missed her so much and she was over the moon to see me but i could also see she had been very happy at the kennels and the owners genually seem to care about the dogs rather than just seeing it as a business. i will be taking Genie to stay there again, next time we go away with no worries and would highly recommend any other dog owners to take their dogs there, lovely people.
