Excellent Care For My Dogs Means Peace Of Mind For Me.
by Sharon Collins, devon

Excellent Care For My Dogs Means Peace Of Mind For Me.

I would highly recommend Gentian Hill Boarding kennels. I looked at many kennels in my area and can honestly say this one is the best. My dogs are treated kindly by Jane and her staff.My dogs are always happy and confident when I take them and pick them up. The kennels are clean and warm and they have their own indoor and outdoor space. It is good to have the peace of mind that while I am away my dogs are happy and well cared for.

Happy Borders
by Maggie Springett, Devon

Happy Borders

I have used Gentian kennels for several years. My two border collies, Scampi and Chips have always been taken great care of, they pull me into the office when I arrive and they look happy and relaxed when I collect them. One is a very nervous dog and the other has arthritis, both are treated with kindness and affection. I also use the dog grooming facility, Amy does a great professional job grooming them and they always smell lovely when I collect them. They share a large pen and it is clean because they are allowed to use a large grass play area regularly for toilets and exercise. I would recommend Gentian highly.
