At Rushmere, we cater for both short and long-term boarding for both cats and dogs.
No matter what the length of stay, your dog or cat is left in experienced hands and looked after properly in a safe and appropriate environment.
We have a relaxed but professional atmosphere for pet care, a kennels where your dog will really feel at home. All our kennels are generously sized and able to accommodate more than one dog (same families only) if required, so families do not necessarily have to be split up!
It goes without saying that hygiene and the comfort of your pet is of the utmost importance and all kennels are thoroughly scrubbed between occupants and a rigorous cleaning routine is carried out with great attention to detail every day.
The young and the old...
Here at Rushmere we welcome young puppies for their first time kennel experience.
Many clients are, quite rightly, apprehensive about leaving their new puppy in kennels for the first time
We ensure that all new puppies and young dogs are gently nurtured into the kennel environment thus allowing them to settle quickly and gain some confidence.
We closely monitor progress, any mood changes, input, output and general demeanour and give support, encouragement and plenty of TLC where required. Only when we judge that the puppy is ready do we expose it to the normal daily routine of kennel life.
Thus after the first experience the young dog is set up for the future and looks forward to its kennels holiday!
On the other hand if your dog is getting old and infirm, the same criteria applies, close monitoring, encouragement, TLC and gentle exercise is the order of the day
We are pleased to announce the opening of our brand new, luxury cattery. Set some distance from the kennels our purpose built cat chalets have been built to the highest spec, in line with current cat boarding regulations. Each cat has a thermostatically controlled heated sleeping area on 3 levels with viewing platforms overlooking the hedgerows and fields. They have access to a fully tiled and insulated play area 24 hours a day via 2 cat flaps. Scratching posts and toys add to your cats comfort and enjoyment during its stay, and we invite you to bring these with you.
Each cat's area has been carefully designed and accommodates up to three cats from the same household sharing if required.
As with the kennels, full isolation facilities are available in the event that any cat requires veterinary attention. We are also happy and able to administer medication if required.
