The Wag Pad Boarding Kennels

Dobles Ln, Holsworthy EX22 6JT, UK – 01409 254028

Our pack had a great time at the Wag Pad recently. Jo and the team were really accommodating to all 5 of our dogs needs who ages ranged from 3-13 and therefore had varying amounts of energy to let off during their time there. it was the first time that 3 of them had been back into any form of kennels since being rescues from the Dogs Trust and so we were a little apprehensive but the dogs did not look back on their return each evening so it seem we were more worried than they were!!! Thank you for giving us peace of mind.

Our 2 boys had a lovely stay at the Wag Pad. We were really concerned that they would pine, but they obviously had a really nice time. We were even sent Facebook updates with pictures of our boys during their stay. Highly recommended.

Bramblewood Boarding Kennels

Rydon Lane, Holsworthy EX22 7HY, UK – 01409 254474

Lady has a nice personality, likes animals. Kennels, and drive up to farm requires attention though.

We bought our labrador here and she is the best behaved dog we have ever had. Diane is so good she gave us all the info we needed as well as a really good puppy pack. We have just decided to have another lab from Bramblewood. Thanks to all there.

Easy to find, parking, pleasant reception, clean, and a thorough examination with an extremely competent vet. You couldn't ask for anything more.

Always friendly staff, options always explained and always seen promptly I highly recommend them.

Penbode Equine

Penbode/North Rd, Holsworthy EX22 6HB, UK – 01409 255549

Absolutely amazing. My husband has always raved about their care, skill and knowledge in looking after the farm, particularly in helping us increase profit through minimising mastitis and lameness and improving fertility. The specialized vets for each species mean that my horse recently received expert treatment from the equine department for her laminitis and also our beloved farm dog was exceptionally well cared for after her accident with the tractor and is now happily working again. They are a fantastic team that provide levels of care that are better than any I have come across in many years of moving around the country. Thank you.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
