Customer Reviews

“I have been leaving my Labrador and Yorkie here twice a year for the last three years. Now I wouldn’t leave my dogs anywhere else. They have a great team working with our pets while we’re away on holidays. Very highly recommended to anyone going away to leave their pets in the great care at Ferry Farm Boarding Kennels.”

-George Pescod
“We booked our 2 Labradors into Ferry Farm during our first family holiday abroad, slightly worried as they had never been left with anyone before let alone a kennel. However when we returned we need not have worried dogs were fine, well fed and clear well looked after during our holiday.  We have re-booked them in for our next holidays, recommended without reservation!”
-Kevin Nicholson
“We don’t like to use kennels normally and worry terribly, but shouldn’t have been concerned! I can’t recommend Ferry Farm Boarding Kennels enough. Lovely owners and staff, clean and spacious but most importantly my 3 dogs are healthy and happy. They aren’t stressed or troubled in the least. Pets can share a kennel, plenty of walks and extensive secure gardens if you prefer your dogs to be off the lead for a good run. The prices are excellent too. If you’re looking for boarding, don’t look any further.”
-Geraldine Wood
“We put our dog Max into Ferry Farm Boarding Kennels. Our son was getting married so Max was in for a couple of nights. Max was a rescue dog so we were a bit apprehensive, but we had no need to worry. He was fine came out tail wagging and very happy; even turned around to try and go back in again. If ever we needed to leave him again I know we wouldn’t hesitate. Thank you to all the staff.”
