We are Mark & Joanne Phillips we have been involved with dogs & cats for many years, our vast experience at caring for dogs & cats gives us a great base to care for yours in the same way we love and care for our own. At Orchard Kennels we promise to keep your pet safe, happy and comfortable as well as keep him/her well exercised in our spacious grass runs, multi pet households can share kennels if required. While your much loved pet is away from home they may become a little disorientated in our kennels and as we are a small kennel we have the time and staff to settle them in so they adjust quickly and smoothly.  Each kennel is clean, warm and comfortable. We spend quality time each day with your pet and hope the stay here is a happy one that they will want to come back to. You are welcome to bring along your own food, bed and toys if you wish.  We have ample grounds which give your pet plenty of opportunity to run around providing part of their daily exercise.
