“We have an 8 year old Springer Spaniel who has only been left in kennels once, with disastrous results. Being a very shy dog we were getting desperate, Then we found The Old Farm Dog Boarding, so we went and had a look and were very impressed so booked him in. Of course we were still worried, but we need not have been, he was looked after superbly, we received progress reports and photos via whatsapp, He was having as good a time as we were. We can’t thank them enough for looking after Jess the way they did.
What does Jess think?…. He can’t wait for his next visit.”
Jennie, Olly & Jess
“I was worried and felt guilty about leaving George as he is only a pup. It was reassuring to know that I had left him with a wonderful family and beautiful, home from home surroundings with lots of freedom. I received pictures which was peace of mind and knew he was having just as much fun as we were on holiday. When George returned home he was quite depressed as he missed all the other dogs.
Definitely will book George in again. Thank you so much for making our time as well as Georges a happy one.”

“Kaya spent a Doggy Day Care day at The Old Farm at short notice. It was the first time we had been parted for more than 3 hours, and consequently I was concerned that her typical Weimaraner separation anxiety problems would be difficult to deal with. I need not have worried. She had a lovely day playing with Maddie, going for walks and had plenty of attention, love, play and stimulation. What a relief – now I can relax knowing that Kaya will be happy in my absence.
The Old Farm is a first class professional caring service for our canine chums and I will be recommending it to all of Kaya’s friends.” Mrs W Molyneux, Hilton.

Tilly has been back for many stays.
