REVIEWS & TESTIMONIAL

Jacob P.

The new owner Melanie was so amazing to deal with, my boys were so happy and well cared for and she sent updated photos and quick response to my emails, highly recommended A1 kennels, thank you Melanie!

Maddi H.

Best experience with the team at A1 Kennels and Cattery. Amazing workers and easy to communicate with to get my baby booked in. My boy was well looked after and I’m glad I chose them to look after him. Will be my first call when I need him looked after in the future. He even has a smile on his face after being with them last weekend.

Wendy F.

These guys are great to deal with and down to earth. l was shown where Charlie (Border Collie) would be for his daycare, which was a very big area for him to run. He got to play with other dogs and came home a happy tired boy. l’d highly recommend them.
