About Us

Best Kennels and Cattery has come from my dream for many years to provide excellent care for pets when their owners are on holiday or ill or need to travel for any other reason. We have been involved with animals all of our life. Currently we are the owners of six dogs, two cats, a small flock of sheep and a dozen or so chickens. We have a really good understanding of your pet’s requirements when you are not around.

We bought this property with the intention of building Best Kennels and Cattery Our purpose built boarding kennels were designed by ourselves and architect friend, David Moran. We were guided on the finer points in relation to hygiene and health matters by our friend and vet Martin O Toole. We believe that our Boarding Kennels and Cattery situated on 40 acres is the Best alternative to your home for your pets while you are away.

Mission Statement

Our ambition is to provide the Best, care and security for your pet while under our care. We are animal loving people and we will demonstrate this to your pet when you are not available.

Health and Welfare policy
To ensure that your pet is safe we will only accept pets that have fully up to date vaccinations, including canine cough for dogs and flu for cats. All vaccination certificates must be brought when arriving with your pet. All dogs must be wearing a collar and lead when being registered and cats must arrive in a cat box.

Teeter testing

For pets that have teeter testing done and where a safe level of immunity is proven and certified by your vet this will be accepted. A general rule would be to reach a level 4 a maximum of four months before boarding.  Click Here for full details on Vaccinations.
